AFL FANTASY ANALYSIS
Todd Goldstein was able to bounce back from a disappointing 2017 to average in the 90’s once again, after averaging 83.9pts from his opening 12 games Goldy finished the 2018 H&A season strongly by averaging 104.7pts from his final 10 games.
Goldstein scored 100pts or more in 36.4% of games & 120pts or more from 13.6% of games in 2018, this was an improvement compared to 2017.
There are a few reasons to be optimistic on Todd Goldstein next season & none more so than the trade of back-up Ruck Braydon Preuss to Melbourne virtually securing the solo Ruck spot for Goldy, additionally the second half of the 2018 season for Goldstein was certainly noteworthy.
The search for a second Ruck to compliment the popular Brodie Grundy will be a critical key to success in 2019 for fantasy coaches, historically Goldstein has given us 1 year averaging more than 100pts and with trades at a premium selecting a mid-long term Ruck option is necessary to begin the season.
Goldstein will be in the mix for a few fantasy coaches during the pre-season, early season match-ups will be crucial in the decision making process.
