SECOND-YEAR Bomber Ben Hobbs was the talk of the AFL Fantasy community last week as he looked to be the player who may benefit from spots opened up in the midfield. He scored 92 points and added $35,000 to his price. Hobbs remains a great pick this week as Essendon take on West Coast and North Melbourne, two sides that leak Fantasy points, in the next two rounds.
In his first game, George Wardlaw racked up 82 Fantasy points thanks in part to his nine tackles. He looks set to be an important player during the byes.
