Inside the Numbers

Inside the Numbers – Rd. 21

Pete goes inside the Fantasy numbers for the second last time this season.

With just 18 games remaining in the 2019 H&A season the scramble is on to find unique options that will be the difference between success & failure.

Quite a few will look to empty bank accounts assuming that the most expensive players are the best & will provide instant reward, pivoting away from this strategy will almost certainly create a unique line-up which will create movement in your overall rank.

No Risk = No Reward.

Good luck for Round 22.
