AFL FANTASY TAKE

Tom Lynch has averaged 59.1pts from 10 games this season, he scored a season high 105pts in Round 7.

It is expected Callum Coleman-Jones will see an opportunity to replace Lynch, Mabior Chol is another direction possible for the Richmond match committee.

The Tigers are expected to see a number of players return over the upcoming period, the midfield should see senior AFL players return which could impact players such as Riley Collier-Dawkins. If the Tigers want to run Jack Riewoldt as the only key forward, it may result in Dustin Martin spending a little more time forward. 

The Richmond team is one to monitor in the short term for adjustments which could provide key fantasy information. 

Lynch is not an option in AFL Fantasy classic.
