AFLW Fantasy: The targets for Round 3

Round 2 of the AFLW season provided players with an unknown before any of the games were even played, with the game between the Western Bulldogs and Brisbane postponed during the week.

As heard first on The Checkside, the players will be given their average score unless the game is played during the week before Round 3.

The postponement, paired with the three big injuries from the previous round, left coaches with plenty of options to use up the three trades that have generously been given each round. 

Player of the round

There can really only be one answer to this, and it is Collingwood’s Brit Bonnici. With a massive score of 133, she took it to another level after her 98 last week.

Stepping in to fill Brianna Davey’s absence, Bonnici finished with an impressive 10 tackles and 23 disposals. If you were someone who traded in Bonnici, last week you will be happy with her breakeven score of 82.

Top 10 scores of the round 

Brittany Bonnici: Collingwood 133  

Anne Hatchard: Adelaide 130

Kerryn Harrington: Carlton 107

Hayley Miller: Fremantle 105

Rookie of the week

Being owned by 56 per cent of the competition, number one draft pick Charlie Rowbottom went on a tackling spree and rewarded coaches with her score of 94.

Rowbottom has now gone up in value a whopping $9900 in the first two games. If she keeps these performances going, she might be a rookie to keep on your team rather than trading when her price maxes out. 

Lowest breakevens 

Helping to get Gold Coast Suns over the line and win their first game in nearly 700 days, Tara Bohanna kicked three goals to score an 87 and get her breakeven price to -19. 

Charlie Rowbottom (Gold Coast): -18 

Dana East (Fremantle): -12

Brooke Brown (Kangaroos): -10 

Meagan Kiely (Richmond): -8 

Round 3 targets:

Here are some other notable performers who are good options to consider when making your trades this week. 

Gabrielle Seymour: Richmond 

If you are struggling in the ruck department, Richmond’s Gabby Seymour is proving to be a good option. Scoring 71 in Round 1 and 95 in Round 2, Seymour is scoring reliably and is currently priced at 66. Only owned by 4.5 per cent of the competition, she is a well priced point of difference ruck option. 

Hayley Miller: Fremantle 

Miller is flying under most people’s radar, but making The Inner Sanctum’s team of the week from her 19 disposals and one goal got us to take a look at Miller’s 105 this week. Averaging 98 from the season so far, with a break even of 45 and ownership of 1.5 per cent, Miller is a better priced option than competition favourite Kiara Bowers.

Ashleigh Woodland: Adelaide Crows 

Woodland has been a star in the Crows forward line this season. The current leading goal kicker with eight for the year, she moved all around the ground against the Kangaroos and scored 87. With a price of $38,600, if she can produce another game like last week, she is a forward line bargain. 

Heading into Round 3 there are a few players who have been suspended. If you were looking at bringing in Emma Swanson from the Eagles, Tait Mackrill from GWS or Ellie Hampson from Gold Coast, wait until Round 4.
