Gold Coast AFL Fantasy Classic Prices 2018

Gold Coast have a plethora of young talent for fantasy coaches to look at during the pre-season & with a new coach on board there will be plenty of opportunities for players previously off the fantasy radar to thrive, Stuart Dew wants to implement a contested ball type game plan similar to that of Sydney so targeting Inside MIDS could be a good place to start.

Gold Coast found plenty of ball in 2018 averaging 387.5 Disposals in the 2017 H&A season, between Rounds 1-15 they were the top ranked team in the AFL averaging 408.5 Disposals per game before falling away late in the year.

Important: Gold Coast do not play at Metricon Stadium until Round 11 due to the Commonwealth Games , also a Round 10 Bye with no AFL Fantasy roster adjustments.

2018 Potential Targets:

Brayden Fiorini $589K MID

Fiorini averaged 83.6pst in his 2nd year at Gold Coast scoring 100pts or more in 38.5% of games, he has recorded 20 or more Disposals in 60.0% of career games at a fantasy average of 104.3pts which includes a career high of 166pts against Port Adelaide late in 2016. Considering his ball winning ability and a new head coach Fiorini is primed for a 2018 breakout, he is a must watch in the pre-season.

Michael Barlow $667 MID/FWD

If the AFL Fantasy forward line turns out to be slim pickings again in 2018 it likely won’t include the name of Michael Barlow, after an injury shortened 2017 season he averaged 94.8pts scoring 100pts or more in 33.3% of games and just 8.3% of games fewer than 80pts. Barlow is an inside Mid that will highly likely succeed under Stuart Dew, not blessed great pace playing in the midfield at a high percentage in a contested game plan should lock in his midfield time at a high rate under Dew.

Lachie Weller $521K MID

Weller’s fantasy numbers weren’t great at Fremantle averaging 62.7pts in 2016 & 74.0pts in 2017, but this selection is all about opportunity for his positioning as an Inside Mid & his low price which could turn out to be a top 2018 value pick. Adding to his fantasy potential Weller has not missed a game in the last 2 years, if you are looking for potential growth in a mid-priced Mid then he could be your man.

Pearce Hanley $509K DEF/MID

If you want a high ceiling Defender then Hanley should be worth considering, in his first year at Gold Coast he averaged 72.2pts scoring 100pts or more in 15.4% of games & 120pts or more in 7.7% of games. Volatility could be an issue for Hanley again as he scored fewer than 80pts in 61.5% of games, he is a definite must watch in the pre-season for positioning & team usage if he plays across half-back. Hanley is experienced and can find the ball in the right circumstances, a new coach, stable environment & playing group could see genuine upside in selecting him at Round 1.

Harrison Wigg $170 MID / Will Brodie $356K MID

Place Wigg on your mid-late season watch list, a fractured Ankle in early December will severely interrupt his pre-season. Once he plays you won’t be disappointed.

Brodie was described as a ‘clearance machine’ by Fantasy Freako in the 2017 Prospectus, he averaged 64.0pts from 3 games which included 23 Disposals & 89pts in Round 23 last season.

  • How frequent will these team price reveals be coming out? Daily?

  • Is it Freo then Carlton the next two

    • Carlton then North, then Freo I think.

      Seems like they’re working their way up from where teams finished the season. I think that means that Tigers and Crows will be revealed last because they made the Grand final.

  • The team picker is now available on DT live, is it safe to assume the pricing is correct on it?

  • teams done lol

        • yes surely poor old Freeman is gunna get a gig

        • Nice standard team, cant see rayner being worth it but i dont mind the team.

          • Yea it is standard I guess, it’s the trades which ultimately gain rankings through out the season. Starting with as many predicted top 6 /8 players then trading in the bolters or ddp additions works.
            Rayner is a watch list, Higgins could be a better pick.

          • Yep, standard doesnt mean bad, Rayner has JS which is good but i see him averaging max 60.

          • Fair call, 270 is a lot to pay for that.

            Another thing Iam toying with is Lloyd – Mills, Raynor – Lobb.
            Mills should be up for a good year

  • I’m gonna go early and predict Nick Holman to make a lot of teams early. Thought he was all right at the Blues and did well in the SANFL

  • Weeeee!

  • just letting you guys know that for some players like Armitage, Seedsman etc. the prices on dtlive aren’t accurate as they haven’t been adequately discounted

    • Oh I didn’t even see this comment before I posted below. Whoops.

      So there is a couple mistakes, I thought so. Any idea when they’ll be fixed?

      • Absolutely no idea. I’m just guessing that these guys haven’t been discounted as their prices are only based on last year’s average (not taking into account missed games or previous year’s average). Assuming my calculations are correct, Armitage will be priced around an average of 65.2 so you’ll have a few more $$$ to play with

  • Hey guys, is the pricing in the Drawing Board for some players wrong or has there been a mistake on the team price listings? Because Mitch Robinson is listed as $583,000 on the Drawing Board but on the Brisbane Lions Team Price List article posted on this site he’s listed as $542,000

    Also Kurt Tippets price of $439,000 hasn’t been discounted by 3% has it? Because he only played 9 games last year (1 fewer than 10, hence the 3% discount). When I calculate his average by “the magic number” I get $439,000 also, but then with the discount I get $426,000 so what should it be?

  • Note guys fro SC & RDT if you paid for the Gold Coach subscription then the early picker is already available. Only advice I would give is just before the systems roll into 2018 make sure you copy down your teams because In the past I am pretty sure they just disappear.

  • Coniglio should be priced about 89 im pretty sure which makes him a lock for me, anyone else getting on?

    • I think he’ll go 103-108 so if he’s priced at 89 then he’s 15-20 under priced in my opinion. Probably won’t be top 8 but s very cheap premo keeper to start off with. Would take him over Parker and Fyfe

    Thoughts, just a starting group but I’m thinking I’m a little heavy down back.

    • Daniels has had knee surgery. Maybe take out Stewart (although I do like him) put in Doedee, then hopefully you will have enough to upgrade Redden to Titch, side is decent, but does need a perma captain. Good luck.
