Nathan Fyfe: This one will hurt one coach in every league. After challenging his one match offer for kicking Daniel Jackson unsuccessfully, Fyfe finds himself out for two weeks. With Fremantle playing Gold Coast this weekend, coaches will be kicking themselves to see this, as Fyfe averages 104 against the Suns. A coach in every Ultimate Footy league has snapped him up as he is a very classy midfielder and a fantasy football sensation, capable of lighting up games and scoring big. Fyfe is averaging 97.2 so far this season and has broken 100 three times in five matches. Taken at an ADP of 27.8, it shows what this player means to the Ultimate Footy coach. He will come back from his suspension firing and look for him to score big again.
Bryce Gibbs: Hamstring issues plagued Gibbs performance on the weekend with him being subbed out at half time and will keep him out for 1-2 weeks. Gibbs had 54 points to half time before being subbed off, in which is his only match score lower than 80. Gibbs is averaging 90.6 in 2013, is owned in 100% of Ultimate Footy leagues and taken at an ADP of 17, so do not get rid of him. He scores very well for a defender in fantasy football and is definitely worth holding on to, just make sure you have a capable substitute until he is fit again.
Jasper Pittard: The injury plagued Pittard has again hit a roadblock, suffering a hip flexor injury. Coach Ken Hinkley has said that he will miss at least one more match, presumably to come back in two weeks time. Pittard is surprisingly owned in only 44% of leagues, averaging 66 and showing a lot of promise providing he stays injury free. If you don’t have a good backup option, then sack him, the better option would be to sit him for now and see how this injury pans out.
Brett Goodes: Suspended for two matches for rough conduct on the weekend, Goodes is having a great debut season, averaging 79.4 from the backline. Goodes is owned in 86% of leagues at an ADP of 218.7 and again, one to hold on to as he can score pretty well and will be picked up very quickly if dropped. If you have a good replacement this should be no issue for you.
Shaun Atley: Atley was the talk of the town after the NAB Cup, expected to put in some very impressive performances but has hardly done that this season. His blistering pace and ability to find the ball are highlights of Atley’s game, but at the moment he is in a poor patch of form and doesn’t look like improving. In what was touted his breakout season, Atley is averaging a mere 58.6 in defence and has not shown much to say he is worth keeping. He has only broken 60 once this season, and for the 61% of Ultimate Footy leagues that have him snapped up, now is the time to put him back on the market.
Mitch Clark: Out for up to eight weeks after reinjuring the foot that cost him half of his 2012 season, It is time to get rid of Clark. With many forwards very capable of the scoring Clark gets, it shouldn’t be an issue for the 65% of Ultimate Footy coaches who own him. Recurring injuries are never a good sign for a player, so Clark may find himself out for longer than those weeks and may even have to work his way back to match fitness through the VFL. Clark currently averages 48 points this season, a very unflattering number that you can easily find a replacement to outscore.
Taylor Walker and Alan Toovey: These two are both out for the season after sickening ACL injuries on the weekend. Both are going for traditional knee reconstructions as opposed to LARS, so there is no point whatsoever holding on to them.
