Name: Cam

From: TheDraftDoctors

Who's the first name on your team sheet: Jack Steele - lock and load.

Who will be the surprise of the year: James Rowbottom

Who will be the highest scoring GameDay Squad player in 2022: Touk Miller

What player are you avoiding at all costs: Mitch Duncan - Another calf injury in pre season, on 2 more calf injuries last year. 30 years old and soft tissues is too risky.

What is a red hot AFLFantasy/Supercoach take for 2022: Sam Walsh is a Burnman. Even before the injury, people expecting so much upside from him, and not giving any thought to marketshare with additional mouths to feed.

Who has been your all time favourite AFL fantasy/ Supercoach Player: Dane Swan

What is one piece of advice you would give a new fantasy coach: If you're starting in classic - have fun! and plan for the byes! If you're starting in draft - assume every trade offer you get, the other player see's value in your player - everyone turns in to a car salesman.


Name: Kerm

From: Footy GameDay Squad Podcast

Who's the 1st name on your team sheet: Sam Walsh is the first player I’d love to pack! He’s going to be in my midfield for well over a decade!

Who will be the surprise of the year: I’m very bullish in believing that Zak Butters will be the name everyone searches up in our transfer market. This is the year he propels himself into fantasy stardom.

Who will be the highest scoring GameDay Squad player in 2022: Jack Steele #Magnet

What player are you avoiding at all costs this year: I’ll be avoiding the once fantasy relevant Michael Walters this year. He’ll still give you big games! But with less midfield time and ageing legs, he’s got a cross through his name for me.

What is a red hot AFL fantasy/ Supercoach take you have for 2022: I think if he stays healthy, Sean Darcy finishes as the Ruck #1 this year.

Who has been your all time favourite AFL fantasy/ Supercoach Player: loved players like Brent Stanton, Bryce Gibbs, Sam Mitchell but my fantasy love for Tom Rockliff knows no bounds. He was a fantasy stud

What is one piece of advice you would give a new fantasy coach: Zig where other people zag! Don’t listen to other coaches on forums or Facebook groups. You’re the general manager, play by your own rules.

Who has been your all time favourite AFL fantasy/ Supercoach Player: Jake Lloyd

What is one piece of advice you would give a new fantasy coach: If you're new to fantasy, keep on learning and learning. Learn off mates, learn off podcasts, news and YouTube videos, also do a bit of learning yourself watch a few games and see who you reckon could be that next fantasy star.

Who has been your all time favourite AFL fantasy/ Supercoach Player: Patrick Dangerfield

What is one piece of advice you would give a new fantasy coach: My one piece of advice is to learn the scoring system that your league/platform uses and understand the ways you can exploit it. Look for Niche statistics that score well, and that are not in abundance. This will create a scenario where other coaches will be willing to pay over the true value for your player and will give you leverage in your league to make trades.
