Last year the Demons supplied us with a fantasy hero in Dom Tyson, in 2015 we have one that could be even better in value.

Nathan Jones: Season 2014 was by far his best fantasy year, for the first time ever he averaged over 100. To get him you’ll be praying some chunky coin with $572,000 departing your salary cap to own him. 11 of his 22 games saw him score 100 or more, and only 4 times did he score less than 90.
Heritier Lumumba: After transferring from the Pies during trade period this Def/Mid will set you back $402,000. Last year he dropped 15 points from his 2013 average and a change of scenery may see him back into the high 80’s averages. If that’s the case he presents some handy value.
Angus Brayshaw: These high draftees are pricey and this years pick #3 will cost you $294,000. Although cheaper options are around with the likes of Stretch ($170K) and Neal-Bullen ($176k) your paying for job security with this rookie. Averaged over 20 touches in both the TAC & Under 18 championships. He has some similar traits to Joel Selwood and Ollie Wines and if he can deliver debut seasons like those two, then he’ll be worth every cent.
The New Position
Christian Salem: From a straight midfielder to a forward this youngster has a crazy set of skills at his disposal. Last years 13 games at an average 31 although poor at first glance this was heavily vest affected for many of his games. Thankfully these vests have heavily reduced his price were he’s a potential bargain at $193,000. In 2014 a round 11 showing against the Power were he chalked up a 79 shows his scoring potential when given a full game.
The One to Watch
Jesse Hogan: Taken in one of the mini drafts and sadly missed the entire 2014 season. Last years pain though is this years reward for fantasy coaches with this imposing kid now priced $194,000. In his full season in the VFL in 2013 (he was ineligible to play in the AFL) he won the best & fairest for Casey where he averaged 14 touches, 6 marks and 2 goals at an average above 70 fantasy points. That’s pretty darn handy priced under $200K. Seriously he’ll be one of the best locks of the season.
