We have made it through the byes and are into the home stretch. It is now time to nail our last couple of trades and pray to the fantasy gods for no more injuries!
To help with your decisions and planning, I will take a look at the strength of schedule for each team’s run home. I’ll also take a look at some ownership data so that you can check in on how your team stacks up versus the consensus top 1,000 team.

The below table shows the average number of SuperCoach points that each team’s opponent has conceded for the upcoming games and each team’s average score and conceded amount.
We can see that Gold Coast has the easiest schedule with 1,699 average points allowed and that Melbourne has the hardest schedule at 1,600 points.
North Melbourne is the easiest matchup (no surprises there!) – conceding a whopping 1,836 points on average. Somewhat surprisingly, Carlton has been the toughest matchup with a stingy 1,548 points conceded on average.
Now this doesn’t mean that Touk Miller is going to average 140 and Clayton Oliver is going to average 75 – but could help tip you either way on some of those borderline decisions.

The Suns have it easy (hello first finals appearance?) – Look at getting T. Miller in if you don’t have him and it’s another reason for Witts as your Preuss / English replacement.
Richmond has an easy schedule too – enough of a reason to hold onto Short?
Based on recent form and the run home I would also like to get Laird or Mills into my side – although I imagine not many would have the cash or trades.
The Bulldogs have the 3rd toughest schedule – I might not trade in another bulldog if I already have four or five of them.
GWS have a hard schedule too – This suggests getting rid of Preuss and avoiding the likes of Taranto or Kelly. I think you have to hang onto Coniglio based on recent form.
There are plenty more examples so take what you need from below and also consider this with your captain choices each week.
