A long term injury isn’t something that any footy fan likes to see, especially Fantasy coaches.
Max Gawn (RUC, $588,000) is set to spend the better part of the next three months on the sidelines following surgery on his injured hamstring. Melbourne’s ruckman went down in the second quarter on 32 Fantasy points, meaning the most expensive ruckman at the start of the season dropped $46,000 in value this week.
The main talking point on this week’s episode of the Official AFL Fantasy Podcast with The Traders is what to do with the 208cm hole left in the ruck division.
The 24 per cent of Fantasy Classic owners have a few choices. One is to find the cash and trade up to the in-form Brodie Grundy (RUC, $623,000), or basically straight swap him to Stefan Martin (RUC, $582,000) who is in the form that made him the top ruckman of 2015.
These are simple moves, but could be get clever with the moves and make get more points out of our squad?
Roy, Warnie and Calvin discuss the Max Gawn trade and help Fantasy Draft owners replace their first round pick with someone suitable.
