AFL FANTASY TAKE

If named at Round 1 Gibbons will be a popular target for fantasy coaches, he is likely to be a MID only along with a price tag of $170K.

The specific role for Gibbons will be key to identify at Carlton, if he can have an immediate impact then he could generate a substantial amount of cash in season long fantasy.

Cottrell could be a bit of a slow burn, his low Disposal count will result in a slower generation of cash once he plays. Cottrell will also likely start at $170K.

Of the two, Gibbons should be your target.
