Nth Melbourne Receive
Jared Polec, Jasper Pittard & Pick 48
Port Adelaide Receive
Pick 11, 2019 4th Rd
AFL FANTASY TAKE: Polec has never really been on the radar of fantasy coaches despite averaging 92.2pts in 2018, he joins the Kangaroos at a peak price compared to his previous fantasy history. Unlikely to attract attention as a fantasy option in 2019.
Pittard has shown signs of a fantasy game as a Defensive option, he is a worthy watch & see in the pre-season for any potential upside. Priced at 70.9pts at Round 1 next year Pittard may be an option, watch list for now.
