Essentially things still run the same with Fantasy Classic, but you’ll notice the new ‘player cards‘ feature. This allows you to see more information on the field view of your team. You can flip an individual card or flip them all over. Fantasy Coach subscribers can find all of the info such as breakevens, projected scores and byes here. To change your captain, sub players or trade you will need to flip the card and click the relevant icon.
Other than that, it is a much fresher look – in line with how the AFL site looks – as well as being clean for all platforms. A lot more is mobile friendly thanks to the new list view. For people who want a heap more stats, you can toggle the list view tab to check this all out.
The Stats Centre has had an overhaul. There’s a lot more information in there.
Plenty of time has gone into Fantasy Draft. You can’t hold your draft until 16 February, but you can set up your league and get your pre-draft rankings set. This is an improved experience and we have seen a live draft in action and it is much better experience than in the past. More flexibility will be added next year for draft leagues. Make sure you provide feedback in July when the yearly survey comes out – especially if you want keeper leagues!
