Sydney Swans AFL Fantasy Classic Prices 2018

Fantasy coaches will be targeting quite a few Sydney players this pre-season as there appears to be some value about after an underperforming 2017 season, the Swans averaged 1493.3 fantasy team points (Rank 17) between Rounds 1-6 and were languishing on the bottom of the ladder with an 0-6 record. Sydney averaged 1641.8 fantasy team points (Rank 6) between Rounds 7-23 and finished the H&A season with a 14-2 record, they averaged 1601.3 fantasy team points for the 2017 H&A season (Rank 14).

In 2016 & in a year when Sydney eventually played in a Grand Final they averaged 1662.6 fantasy team points (Rank 3), the Swans averaged 1496.3pts in 2017 against their opening 3 opponents of the 2018 H&A season. Sydney play 5 of their 2018 opening 6 games against 2017 Final 8 teams, despite the difficult start it is hard to imagine a repeat of the poor early 2017 form.

2018 Potential Targets:

With fantasy coaches focusing in on JPK, Hanners & Parker as starting MID options, here are some splits that may be of use.

Josh P. Kennedy MID $690K

In 2016 Kennedy averaged 108.7pts (Incl. Finals) scoring 100pts or more in 64.0% of games and 120pts or more in 28.0% of games

In 2017 Kennedy averaged 97.0pts (Incl. Finals) scoring 100pts or more in 57.1% of games and 120pts or more in 9.5% of games, he averaged 99.2pts between Rounds 7-23 (Sydney 14-2 record).

Dan Hannebery MID $665K

In 2016 Hannebery averaged 107.4pts (Incl. Finals) scoring 100pts or more in 69.2 % of games and 120pts or more in 30.8% of games

In 2017 Hannebery averaged 93.9pts (Incl. Finals) scoring 100pts or more in 39.1% of games and 120pts or more in 8.7% of games, he averaged 97.6pts between Rounds 7-23 (Sydney 14-2 record).

Luke Parker MID $693K

In 2016 Parker averaged 107.1pts (Incl. Finals) scoring 100pts or more in 57.7% of games and 120pts or more in 30.8% of games

In 2017 Parker averaged 96.7pts (Incl. Finals) scoring 100pts or more in 37.5% of games and 120pts or more in 8.3% of games, he averaged 101.5pts between Rounds 7-23 (Sydney 14-2 record).

Lance Franklin FWD $677K / Isaac Heeney MID/FWD $649K

Franklin averaged 96.1pts in the 2017 H&A season which included a Round 23 score of 171pts, he scored 100pts or more in 37.5% of games & 120pts or more in 16.7% of games (Incl. Finals). Franklin averaged 95.2pts with Issac Heeney & 100.3pts without him during the 2017 H&A season.

Heeney averaged 92.2pts during the 2017 H&A season, he scored 100pts or more in 35.0% of games & 120pts or more in 10.0% of games (Incl. Finals). Heeney was hampered late in the 2017 pre-season with glandular fever.

Jake Lloyd DEF $649K / Kieren Jack MID/FWD $526K

These are the numbers you need to be aware of, Lloyd averaged 105.5pts between Round 1-14 (2pts from Round 10 not included). When Jarrad McVeigh put together a lengthy game streak of 11 games to finish off the year (Incl. Finals) Lloyd averaged 85.0pts.

Jack was severely limited with a hip injury in the early part of 2017 which included missing 5 games between Rounds 6-10, Jack averaged 86.8pts from his final 11 games of the season (Incl. Finals). Maybe not enough value but the MID/FWD DPP status might have a few interested.

Darcy Cameron RUCK $170K / Alex Johnson DEF $170K

Cameron is highly rated at Sydney and despite being very low on the depth chart right now he is likely to see action in 2018, a very solid R4 to begin the season with.

Johnson was re-drafted as a rookie during the off-season, he has not played since the 2012 Grand Final and 2018 appears to be a make a break season. One to monitor throughout the pre-season.

    Sincerely hope it is a make or break season for Alex Johnson as opposed to a make a break season. How unlucky would he have to be?
