...and breathe. The 27 matches of the JLT Community Series are in the can and Fantasy numbers are being crunched as we countdown to the round one lockout.
The challenge of playing AFL Fantasy Classic is selecting a starting squad that will score maximum points while staying under the $11M salary cap. To be able to fit as many premium players in your squad, you need to find players who are priced below what their output will be.
Pre-season matches give coaches a bit of an idea of who is under-priced based on their potential role when the real thing starts in round one.
The $150K players are best suited to the bench. But if you can get away with a couple to start on your field, then they not only act as cash cows but can provide handy points both directly and indirectly. They can allow you to select more premium players, getting an edge over your opponents.
Plenty of under-priced players put their hands up across the course of the JLT Series, but itâ€™s important to pick those who are likely to take that form into the pre-season. The Traders trim their extended squads as they aim to settle on the 30 theyâ€™ll take into round one.
