Team Sheets – Rd. 18

All the news, rumours, and team sheets for round 18!


Last week had some massive scores which was pretty disappointing to see.  I had a 2395 with Coniglio!  That’s not right at all.  We’re getting into the tail end of the season now so hopefully coaches begin to rest their star players, will it start this week?  Let’s find out!

Round 18 kicks off 19:50 AEST Friday night so make sure you have all your trades and emergencies locked in by then!  The Traders will be reacting LIVE today from 18:15 AEST on the Official AFL Fantasy Facebook page to the team announcements, so think of this article as your text-based companion guide.

    Bring in Snelling this week and make some cash or go Brayshaw up to Fyfe?

      Thinking the same but Cripps instead of Fyfe, could always give snelling a week and get him next week.

    Really would appreciate some advice. Who do you guys think will be the best for the rest of the year out of Taranto, Merrett or Duncan? Thanks!

      In all likelihood the difference between them is going to be marginal. I think the answer is probably Taranto, especially after Cogs and Kelly have gone down. Personally I’d go Duncan because he’s the lowest owned, gamble on him outscoring the other two so you can overtake people ahead of you. But yeah Taranto.

    Trade or hold Fyfe? Somehow Brayshaw is looking like surviving another week thanks to injury, never again

      July 18, 2019 at 7:14 pm

      Yeah, Gus Brayshaw is nothing if not a survivor.

      Same boat as I have Cogs and Fyfe, everytime I am sorted to get rid of him, something else comes up. He will be rookie priced by the time he goes

      Don’t have anything in bank and was happy with Murphy and Cripps for Cogs and Brayshit, but now not sure what to do

      FWIW I’m holding Fyfe for this round and I’ll see what his fitness situation is like next week. I already have a forced trade with Cogs and need to attend to other issues in my squad, namely offloading non-playing rookies to keep the cash coming in.
      Bloody carnage isn’t it?! Is GWS jinxed perhaps?

    Upgrade depending on the trades I do, but I just one more player, Duncan, Merrett, Henderson, Cripps ( I’m not sold on him again) Oliver, Hunter, Sidebottom…. fighting for a top eight stop so I sort of need to trade

      Duncan or Merrett but look at your opponents for the next few weeks and decide if you want to cover the same player or have a unique.

      Laird is at 45% ownership, not sure he’s a worthwhile target. Newman looks the play with three consecutive 100+ scores.
