Inside the Numbers – Rd. 7

Pete goes inside the Fantasy numbers for this week.

It was a tough week for nearly all fantasy coaches dealing with under performing premium players & injuries, if you somehow avoided most of the major issues then a massive jump in rank was the likely result.

Bye planning should be well underway, as always those that plan accordingly will come out the other side with an improved rank.

As Round 8 approaches it would be wise to pay close attention to any type of injury news (insert Patrick Dangerfield) in order to gain an advantage over your opponents.

Here are some quick grabs from Round 7.
