Team sheets will be released at approximately 6.30pm AEST today, with The Traders reacting LIVE on the Official AFL Fantasy Facebook page from 6.05pm AEST!
In the meantime we’ll be updating all the news and rumours here, so if you’ve heard something on the grapevine feel free to tweet at me or use #AFLFantasy!
Another week of disaster avoided! Not too much to report, Jordan De Goey is back, as is David Swallow, Jarryd Lyons, Tom Stewart, Shaun Higgins, Matthew Kreuzer, Tim Taranto, Dylan Shiel, Dion Prestia, and Bachar Houli, which do have some draft implications at least. We also have some fresh meat for bench downgrades in Ben Paton and Lewis Pierce, with the chance of a few more when Sunday teams are finalised.
For the outs, Josh Battle, Joel Smith, and Ryan Abbot are three popular emergencies that got the chop. Andrew Brayshaw and Andrew Gaff will miss the rest of the season in case you hadn’t heard yet, and Toby Nankervis is also out for a week which will hurt some people (me) in draft.
