So round 1 of the AFL has now finished (yes, I'm one of the many who are somewhat annoyed at the split round start to the season) & the various fantasy competitions are underway.
With the apparent falling out between Virtual Sports & the AFL, there are now three big AFL fantasy competitions running in 2014 - the official AFL Fantasy comp, the Herald Sun run AFL Supercoach & the Virtual Sports run Real Dream Team.
I had a decent start in all three competitions, AFL Fantasy 2144 (rank 10837/166604); AFL Supercoach 2233 (rank 12835/230702); Real Dream Team AFL 2114 (rank 2458/31632); Glad I scored over 2000 in all three comps (a good benchmark score to aim for), though a little disappointed with a few of my scores in AFL Fantasy, which is the main comp I am playing.
Here is the team I went into round 1 with & how they scored:
I'll be re-vamping my team prior to round 2 & I think it will look much more like my Real Dream Team side, but with a few changes.
My Real Dream Team round 1 team (with scores) was as follows:
I think my round 2 AFL Fantasy team will be something similar to the RDT side, but with the extra trades, I will probably take a few more risks as it is easier to correct them with the additional trades.
I should also mention my AFL Fantasy league - use the code 2K5XUSVE to join & take me on!
