Richmond AFL Fantasy Classic Prices 2019

Prices, positions & tips for the Tigers.

Richmond recorded fewer than 1500pts in 10 games during the 2018 H&A season (Rank 16), the Tigers averaged 368.0 Disposals over the same period (Rank 13).

Only 1 player averaged more than 90pts at Richmond last season (Incl. Finals), Dustin Martin recorded the highest average of just 92.0pts.

Richmond averaged 59.1 Inside 50s during the 2018 H&A season (Rank 2), the low Disposal / more direct approach combined with a high rate of Inside 50s is likely to continue in 2019.

The addition of Tom Lynch will likely make the Tigers a more potent attacking team in 2019, the efficient game plan could see the Tigers rank low again in disposals & fantasy points.

2019 Potential Targets:

Dustin Martin MID $674K

The 2018 H&A season was a disappointment for fantasy coaches who owned Dusty, he clearly lacked fitness (Injury impact) at times during the season and did spend more time Forward as opposed to a 2017 sweeping Half-Back role.

The addition of Tom Lynch likely pushes Martin away from the Forward line, a fully fit Martin at Round 1 could see a spike in average as a result.

Martin scored 100pts or more in 34.8% of games last season, this was a significant regression compared to 2017 in which he scored 100pts or more in 64.0% of games.

Identifying the role for Martin in 2019 will be a critical piece of the puzzle, if he is to return to a more favourable Midfield / sweeping Half-Back role then he is severely under-priced at Round 1.

Jayden Short DEF $551K

The fantasy game for Short started to emerge last season, he increased his average from 56.6pts in 2017 to 75.7pts from 24 games in 2018.

The new kick-in rule will likely advantage Short in 2019, he was clearly ranked No.1 at the Tigers last season for kick-ins.

Keep an eye on the role for Short during the JLT Series and a check on his scoring, he could be in for another increase in average this season.

Tom Lynch FWD $487K

Selecting key Forwards in season long fantasy can lead to significant problems due to the volatility in scoring, but consider the role for Lynch at Richmond in 2019.

Richmond were ranked No.2 for Inside 50s last season and Lynch is likely to be the main target if not close enough to it alongside Jack Riewoldt, the Tigers ran Shaun Grigg out in the Ruck to assist Toby Nankervis last season and that role likely moves to Lynch in 2019.

Lynch is returning from a season ending knee injury in 2018 but there have been no reports of any significant setbacks thus far, at his price & FWD status he might see a significant spike in average in 2019.
