AFLW Fantasy Weekly Wrap – Round 5 2022

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

Coaches were hit by two massive outs with the highest averaging midfielder and forward both ruled out of Round 5.

⚓️ Kiara Bowers (MID) was owned by 55% of the competition and was suspended for two games, while 😈 Tyla Hanks (FWD) had 48% ownership and was subject to health and safety protocols.

Scores will be dictated by who coaches pivoted to and how they used the extra cash.

Fantasy pig of the week

🐦 Ebony Marinoff (MID) has only averaged 88 this year but made amends with a massive 140. She notched up the second highest score of the season through 31 disposals, 8 marks and 10 tackles.

Marinoff has dropped $4,100 so far and looks like a steal at $72,100 before the impending price bump. She’s owned by 19% of the competition but that number’s set to rise.

The rest of the top 10 were:

2. 🐦 Anne Hatchard (MID) – 119

3. 🐱 Rebecca Webster (DEF) – 116

4. 🐶 Kirsty Lamb (MID) – 108

5. ⚓️ Hayley Miller (MID) – 107

6. 🦘 Jasmine Garner (MID) – 103

7. 🐯 Monique Conti (MID) – 102

8. 😈 Lily Mithen (MID) – 101

9. 🦘 Ashleigh Riddell (MID) – 100

=10. 🔵 Mimi Hill (MID) – 97

=10. ⚓️ Gabby O’Sullivan (FWD) – 97

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.

😈 Eliza West (MID) notched up one vote in Round 3 for a 55 but topped the round this time with 71. 10 tackles is massive for a rookie and she even had a couple shots at goal.

The remaining votes go to:

4. 🐱 Georgie Prespakis (MID) – 70

3. 🐱 Annabel Johnson (MID) – 66

2. 🐱 Darcy Moloney (MID) – 65

1.  ⚓️ Jessica Low (FWD) – 63

    Ben I hate to be harsh mate but no one cares. The lack of comments on these articles shows you that. There is a reason even Warnie doesn’t do this.This will never take off. It’s just pandering to the woke brigade.

      Justin. There’s a saying going round. Go woke or go broke!

      Imagine thinking your opinion is important enough to comment something like that. Go back to the drawing board and say something that doesn’t make you look like a piece of ****

    Ben Mate! I care! I have never felt I’ve needed to comment as I think these posts are a great summary of the round. I have never watched more aflw games then I have this year due to playing aflw fantasy. Keep up the good work!

    Calling a fantasy sports game ‘woke’ because it features females is peak sexist- so congrats on that. And thanks Ben for the articles I read them every week

      The guy commenting here is a serial pest. This proves, again, what a fragile human he is. He regularly misses the point on what fantasy footy banter is and what we’re all about with our content. He gets his knickers in a twist and tries to be all alpha on me when clearly he has many issues that he should seek help for.

      And again, if you don’t like something, don’t engage with it … you only make yourself look ridiculous.
