AFLW Fantasy Weekly Wrap – Round 4 2022

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

The Friday night double header wasn’t to be, with the St Kilda v West Coast game postponed due to the number of Eagles under health and safety protocols.

The AFLW also decided that the Footscray v Fremantle game on Tuesday will count as Round 4, rather than being an additional game between rounds.

St Kilda and West Coast’s 21s from Round 3 will receive their averages, while the Footscray v Fremantle game won’t count for fantasy purposes (although imagine captaining Bowers for a quadruple score!).

Fantasy pig of the week

What a bounce back for 🐦 Anne Hatchard (MID)! She was second to Bowers and Bonnici in Rounds 1 and 2 but has claimed the crown with 122, which exactly equalled her breakeven.

Hatchard finished up in the third quarter on 37 last round due to a foot injury but there was no sign that she was impeded this time. She accumulated 29 disposals, 9 marks and 4 tackles to bump her average back where it belongs.

The rest of the top 10 were:

2. 🦁 Emily Bates (MID) – 104

3. 🐦 Erin Phillips (MID) – 100

4. 🦘 Ashleigh Riddell (MID) – 98

5. 🦘 Jenna Bruton (MID) – 97

6. ⚓️ Ebony Antonio (FWD) – 97

7. 🐯 Monique Conti (MID) – 97

8. ☀️ Tara Bohanna (FWD) – 94

9. ⚓️ Hayley Miller (MID,) – 93

10. ⚓️ Kiara Bowers (MID) – 92

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.

☀️ Tara Bohanna (FWD, $19,000) had wrapped up the five votes by halftime! She’d amassed 68 points by then with goals and went on to score 94.

Bohanna finished with 16 disposals, 8 marks, 3 tackles and could’ve cracked the ton if she kicked straighter than 2.3. She backed up her four votes in Round 2 to jump to the top of the leaderboard.

The remaining votes go to:

4. 🔵 Keeley Sherar (MID) – 70

3. ⚓️ Aine Tighe (RUCK) – 62

2. 🔵 Paige Trudgeon (MID) – 61

1. ☀️ Charlie Rowbottom (MID) – 57

1. 🟠 Emily Pease (MID) – 57

Leaderboard: ☀️ Tara Bohanna (9), ☀️ Charlie Rowbottom (7), 🐱 Georgie Prespakis (5), 😇 Leah Cutting (5), 🔵 Courtney Jones (4), 🦘 Jasmine Ferguson (4).

Side note

A majority of coaches traded in 🦁 Zimmorlei Farquharson (FWD, $17,600) following her brilliant 58 point debut. She only managed 9 this round, although that does mean she beat her -6 breakeven.

The second most traded in player was a worse decision though, despite boasting an average of 61 and a breakeven of 2. ☀️ Ellie Hampson (DEF, $30,000) will score 0 this week because she still needs to serve her one week suspension — Gold Coast’s Round 3 game was postponed.
