Optimal AFL Fantasy Lineup – Post Round 9

6 changes to the AFL Fantasy Optimal Season Long Lineup after Round 9. The byes for Gold Coast and Port Adelaide meant that Gary Ablett, Charlie Dixon and Brad Ebert lost their spots. A couple of Eagles pushed their way back in after their massive loss to the Bombers and a couple of Sydney defenders swapped in and out.

For those unfamiliar with the premise of this exercise, what we are tracking is the best possible 22 that could have been afforded pre Round 1 lockout in AFL Fantasy from a scoring standpoint. This particular lineup would have cost you $9,799,000 which would have allowed you to pad your bench with $150,000 rookies (not that you would have needed to use any).

Our goal is to find the best possible scoring side by season’s end without having to use any trades or bench players. The only change the coach would have theoretically have had to do each week is change the captain.

For those interested in the lineups from previous weeks, these can be found here:

Moving on lets look at the ins and outs from the team this week:

IN

OUT

Zach Tuohy (GEEL) – DEF Christian Salem (MELB) – DEF

This team has scored a total of 21610 (Round 1 – 2229, Round 2 – 2517, Round 3 – 2293, Round 4 – 2372, Round 5 – 2343, Round 6 – 2439, Round 7 – 2438, Round 8 – 2547 & Round 9 – 2432) over the first nine rounds at an average of 2401.1. The captain for each week is highlighted in the table as green.

If you started with this team you would be comfortably ranked No 1 in Australia by a margin of 1390 fantasy points (although this margin has come down this week by approximately 70 points). And the best part, you wouldn’t have used any trades!!!
