Every six rounds, the team at Champion Data run the numbers and award a group of players dual position status.
They take into account where they line up on the ground, which parts of the ground they get their disposals and their role in the team. If this is significantly different to the single position they are already assigned, they add the new one and become DPPs (dual position players).
Having DPPs in your squad allows extra flexibility in your line up and can help you out when trading.
During the week, 20 new players added a position and quite a few have been welcomed in the middle of the multi-bye rounds.
Basement priced first year players such as Sam Petrevski-Seton, Zac Fisher, Daniel Lloyd and Kurt Mutimer were previously only available as midfielders and with their new forward status, they can provide a handy bench link.
Filling the hole left by Max Gawn and Jake Spencer, Cam Pedersen is now available as a RUC/FWD.
The most interesting names for Fantasy coaches are usually those who add either FWD or DEF to their midfield status.
At their best, Pearce Hanley, Sam Menegola and Travis Boak would be among the best in their new positions. Daniel Rich, Jack Newnes and Dom Sheed will certainly be worth looking at as free agents in your Draft leagues.
