AFL Fantasy opened on the evening of Monday 21 December. Since then a few thousand coaches have jumped on an made their Fantasy Classic teams. We’ve pulled out the data of the most picked players thanks to Fantasy Coach (subscribe so you get all of the important numbers to help you dominate this year).
Top 30 most selected players
Team made up of the most popular picks
In other years when I’ve done this exercise, I’ve generally been able to put this squad together from the top 35 or so picks. Whether it’s because of the greater range of players selected, the challenging salary cap for the top end players or that there is limited data, this squad pulls some sub-$200k selections from a long way down.
Also, there were some popular premiums culled from the list due to salary cap issues. This team has $59k in the bank with a structure that isn’t advisable… at this stage anyway!
