AFLW Fantasy Weekly Wrap – Round 8 2022

Ben reveals the fantasy pig of the week and who scored votes for the rookie of the year medal.

There were seven tons this week – seven!

All from premiums though, so having a finished team without rookies on the ground is paying off for coaches who’ve been disciplined from day dot.

There are now just two rounds left so hopefully you’re within striking distance of the top 100, or maybe even the top prize.

Fantasy pig of the week

🐦 Anne Hatchard (MID) top scored this week with 121 in a gruelling victory over Fremantle.

Considering the shorter quarters 31 disposals is incredible to go along with her 8 marks and 3 tackles.

It’s the second time Hatchard’s won this award, which means that she and teammate 🐦 Ebony Marinoff (MID) have won it four of eight times this season.

The rest of the top 10 were:

🏁 Jaimee Lambert (MID) – 118

😈 Lily Mithen (MID) – 117

🦁 Catherine Svarc (DEF) – 114

🦁 Emily Bates (MID) – 108

🦘 Ashleigh Riddell (MID) – 101

🐦 Ebony Marinoff (MID) – 108

😇 Tilly Lucas-Rodd (MID) – 98

🐱 Amy McDonald (MID) – 95

😈 Karen Paxman (MID) – 95

Rookies of the round

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

⚓️ Airlie Runnalls (MID) has polled her first votes by taking out the maximum five with an outstanding 90.

She beat the next best rookie by just 1 and amassed 21 touches, 4 marks and 4 tackles to go with her goal.

The remaining votes go to:

4. 🐯 Meagan Kiely (MID) – 89

3. 🔵 Keeley Sherar (MID) – 66

2. ☀️ Tara Bohanna (FWD) – 65

1. 🏁 Eliza James (FWD) – 63

Leaderboard: 😈Eliza West (11) 🐱 Georgie Prespakis (11), ☀️ Tara Bohanna (11), ☀️ Charlie Rowbottom (10),  🦘 Brooke Brown (7), 🐯 Meagan Kiely (7), 🔵 Keeley Sherar (7).

Side note

2% of the top 100 coaches captained 🏁 Brittany Bonnici (MID) who was injured on 18 with a knee injury.

Her ownership has been dropping after averaging just 82 in the last three games, but she’s still in 25% of all teams.

Bonnici’s price will drop after lockout but at the moment it’s $19,400 up to ⚓️ Kiara Bowers (MID).
