Life without Ablett – Ep. 17, round 17

This week on NAB AFL Fantasy podcast, The Traders discuss the big issue of the Gary Ablett trade and his likely replacements along with the other dramas heading into round 17.

Over 130,000 NAB AFL Fantasy coaches collectively gasped when Gary Ablett dislocated his shoulder on Saturday evening. The superstar will spend at least three weeks on the sidelines. His replacement and what we do with the suspended Rockliff and Goddard is the main order of business for The Traders.

    Actually u called me out to a captain selection this week. My #1 captain will be Barlow vs gws. Stevie J solid but dees are tag happy and I see as risky. Will be interesting on Calvin’s thoughts wed. As No GAJ or rocky makes it interesting

    I’m thinking of just tanking this week having the midfield trifecta and only shenton/Z.obrien on the bench. Thinking of going Gaz to SJ/Greenwood & Suckers to NDS/Bartel.

    I have 4 midfielders out this week. Can anyone beat that for carnage? (Rockliff, Goddard, Rosa and Ablett). I need Gleeson on the field to get to 22…

      If its for your backline go Hodge, if your trading in a mid go A Swallow he’s finding form and getting better each week from injury, his price will go up a fair bit then trade in a premium mid for him
