If you had the option between the following backlines what would you go with?

1) Whitfield, Young, Yeo, Budarick, Williams, Coffield (Reid, Schienmaker) $80k in bank

2) Whitfield, Young, Yeo, Williams, Coffield, Curtin (Reid, Schienmaker) $305k in bank

Dear traders
I am wondering if we could get if not this year but soon cals scale of hardness installed on the AFL fantasy site. Where it’s similar to the byes you can click a button and it shows the colour codes for the next games played or maybe the next 4 overall games colour. The concept would be amazing
