It’s the penultimate round of the season, meaning AFL Fantasy coaches have their preliminary finals. No more second chances, the equation is simple; win and you’re into the Grand Final, lose and it’s time to book your end of season trip… or start planning for Fantasy in 2019.

In the super-competitive Bacon Cup, Roy and Warnie will face-off this weekend to book a place in the big dance. With the Warne Dawgs having the edge over destROY in recent weeks, it will be interesting to see what moves are made. Warnie is keen to bring in Mitch Duncan to nullify one of Roy’s point of differences due to the Cats’ favourable match up.

The boys run the numbers to see which teams have the best Fantasy match ups for the final two rounds of the season. Geelong take on Fremantle this weekend, the fourth easiest team to score points against and then Gold Coast in the Grand Final. Both games are at GMHBA Stadium making Gary Ablett, Patrick Dangerfield and Sam Menegola popular options to trade in.

Some coaches want to go against the trends to find a point of difference. Some unique options are discussed for the underdogs in their leagues.

    1 – Pendles gets me to Gibbs, but I’m not sure there’s much advantage here.
    2 – Zorko gets me to Cogs (110+ in 11 of 19 games), Heppell (in form), Murphy (POD) or Gola (easy run home)
    3 – Wingard (taking a risk) gets me to Hawkins (easy run home) or Riewoldt (in form and chasing the Coleman)

    Leaning towards 2 with Menegola and switch him FWD for Wingard next week..
