AFLW Fantasy Weekly Wrap – Round 3 2022

Join Ben for a look back at round three of the AFLW Fantasy competition.

COVID-19 has impacted another round of the AFLW with the Footscray v Gold Coast game postponed and their last 21s given their average.

Meanwhile Brisbane were given a Tuesday night fixture for extra time to put together a team.

It was a low scoring round with just one ton compared to six each in Rounds 2 and 3.

But a certain fantasy gun would’ve turbo-charged your score, especially if you were in the 49% of coaches who gave her the captaincy…

Fantasy pig of the week

Swan, Rockliff, Mitchell and Grundy might have company in the sty soon. ⚓️ Kiara Bowers (MID, $90,500) was everywhere on Saturday amassing 24 kicks, 4 handballs, 2 marks and 16 tackles for 152. That’s 64 points in tackles alone!

Bowers bounced back from 89 in Round 2 to reclaim her position as highest averaging player with 121 points per game. Take the captaincy from her at your peril.

The rest of the top 10 were:

2. 🐦 Ebony Marinoff (MID, $74,500) – 98

3. 😇 Tilly Lucas-Rodd (MID, $50,400) – 96

4. 🐱 Amy McDonald (MID, $69,100) – 96

5. 🦘 Ashleigh Riddell (MID, $76,900) – 90

6. 🏁 Brittany Bonnici (MID, $82,000) – 89

7. 🏁 Jaimee Lambert (MID, $68,000) – 89

8. 🐦 Stevie-Lee Thompson (FWD, $39,900) – 86

9. 🐦 Erin Phillips (MID, $68,400) – 85

10. 🦁 Emily Bates ($52,700) – 84

Cash cows of the round

Players who started the year at $20,300 or less are eligible for the AFLW Fantasy Cash Cow of the Year medal and the top five scorers will be awarded votes each round.

😇 Leah Cutting (RUCK, $20,600) hasn’t polled any votes so far this season but claimed the full five with St Kilda’s second highest score of the round – 78. She’s rocketed up to equal second in the cash cow medal and is averaging an impressive 58 points so far.

The remaining votes go to:

4. 🔵 Courtney Jones (MID, $20,000) – 62

3. 🐱 Olivia Fuller (RUCK, $18,200) – 59

2. 🦁 Zimmorlei Farquharson (FWD, $14,300) – 58

1. 😈 Eliza West (MID, $19,400) – 55

Leaderboard:  ☀️ Charlie Rowbottom (6), 🐱 Georgie Prespakis (5), 😇 Leah Cutting (5), 🔵 Courtney Jones (4), 🦘 Jasmine Ferguson (4), ☀️ Tara Bohanna (4).

Side note

13% of the competition traded in 🐦 Anne Hatchard (MID, $76,600) after she scored 120 and 130. 13% also captained the highest averaging player only to get 74 – and yes, that’s after doubling 37!

Hatchard finished up in the third quarter due to a minor plantar fasciitis flare up. Adelaide next play on Saturday so we won’t know if she’s named before full lockout at the start of Round 4 on Thursday night.
