Inside the Fantasy Numbers – Round 18

Pete is back and goes inside the Fantasy numbers.

The scramble is on to find extra funds to complete what should be the final few trades in preparation for AFL Fantasy Finals, looking at quite a few highly ranked teams some benches remain thin with very little cash reserves with many wanting an overdraft facility at this time of the year. As a result options are very limiting without a healthy bench and a solid bench to extract cash from, all is not lost if you sit comfortably with the knowledge of playing finals with a solid team structure. For others it is likely a must win game in Round 19 to secure a spot in the finals or even a Top 4 position.

Trading decisions are extremely important this week and game match-ups might provide an insight in to potential short & long term winning moves, the numbers below could deliver comfort in knowing your player/s are in a position to succeed at a time when you need them the most.

    Other answers may work, if you want to have rounded numbers of 2 decimal places. But, If you want to have floating point numbers with first two decimal places
