Drawing Board 2019

Chad has an early version of his popular team builder site ready for next season.

While we are waiting for AFL Fantasy Classic to open in January, our friend Chad at has got the 2019 version of his popular team picker, the Drawing Board, opened for coaches to start building their teams.

Chad has crunched the numbers and got a version up that takes in A quick recap on how prices are calculated.

  • $12,800,000 salary cap is projected.
  • Players are priced based on their output last season. eg. 2018 average x magic number (approx 7142 for 2019).
  • Players who missed a full season receive a discount of 30% on their 2017 average.
  • Players who have missed two or more seasons received a discount of 35% on their last available average.
  • Players playing less than 10 games receive a 3% discount on each game under 10. eg. Play 5 games in 2016, then they receive a 15% discount. This is applied to the higher of their season average from the last two years.

Head to and under AFL, click on Drawing Board to start picking your squad of 30 players now. You will need a free account to get started.

    Haha, my earliest first draft ever 😂💪

    DEF: Laird, Witherden, Docherty, Williams, rookie, rookie (bench)
    MID: Mitchell, Cripps, Treloar, Kelly, Adams, rookie, rookie, rookie (bench)
    RUC: Grundy, Preuss (bench)
    FWD: Dangerfield, Dunkley, Greene, McCluggage, rookie, rookie (bench)

    Hoping/assuming big Preuss gets picked up by a team that needs a number 1 ruck. If that happens he will be a bargain!!

    yoh are a legend for posting this. Something to satisfy my off-season fantasy thirst. If only the draft doctors can get their draft simulator up and running again I’ll be pleased as punch :)

    Probably the earliest first draft I’ve ever done. Going light in the forwards. No doubt this will change a ton.

    The Harlequins (Salary Cap Left: $10,400)

    Def: Laird, Whitfield, Witherden, Docherty, Rookie, Rookie (Rookie, Rookie)

    Mid: T.Mitchell, Macrae, P.Cripps, Z.Merrett, Hannebery, Rookie, Rookie, Rookie (Rookie, Rookie)

    Ruc: Grundy, Gawn (Rookie, Rookie)

    Fwd: Menegola, Greene, Bennell, Setterfield, Rookie, Rookie (Rookie, Rookie)

    Clearly, I have far too much time on my hands. I just can’t wait for the pre-season and looking forward to season 2019.
