AFL FANTASY TAKE: Wingard joins the Hawks & should see a fair percentage of midfield time, depending on game match-ups he will spend time forward which could make his scoring quite volatile. It is worthwhile taking a look at the Hawks in the pre-season to see how Wingard will fit in, throw him on your watch list.

After a strong 2017 season Burton regressed significantly to average 62.0pts in the 2018 H&A season, Port Adelaide are generally not considered a strong fantasy scoring team but the price & upside potential is certainly worth considering.

Mayes moves to Port Adelaide & should increase his playing opportunity, he is slightly under-priced compared to his previous fantasy history but will be awkwardly priced for fantasy coaches for a player that has averaged over 90.0pts once in the last 5 years. Probably not worth considering.
