    Trading Dusty, COVID-chaos, Kelly and Darcy injuries

    What a round that was! From the injuries to Dusty, Kelly and Darcy to the COVID isolating that needs to be done by Toby and Millsy, there wouldn't be too many coaches who have no issues this week. We're here to try and make some sense of it all. Try, that's the operative word. Oh boy, here we go again! Let's go!

RYDER FT ,

Love this pod

Hi guys this is my first time playing AFL Fantasy. When I started I was not able to understand what I was doing but then I found you absolute legends then I started doing so well😃

Top tier Legends 👊🏼

I have never played Fantasy nor any other format, and yet I have not missed an episode in years.

These legends provide invaluable analysis of who should play well (or who you should steer clear of) each week, and outside of the Fantasy world have been able to substantially improve my tipping and Sportsbet account.

As a footy fanatic, I find that I can consistently rely on these blokes to give me the best insight into all facets of our game whilst providing me with non-stop laughs and something to look forward to on Mondays and Thursdays every week.

Funniest and most intelligent (including the People’s Prince, believe it or not) news breakers and score makers, you’d be a fool not to give this a consistent listen.
