In the Band of Brothers series, I’m looking to identifying players which statistically are most likely to represent the best value for money. These are the players that are the “keepers” in your team – not your rookies who are mere stepping stones to bigger and better things.

In Band of Brothers – Part 1, I found that players who are between 160 and 240 career games have the greatest average AFL Fantasy Totals. And in Band of Brothers – Part 2 players who score $550,000 and have played at least 20 rounds of football last year are in the upper echelon of potential picks.
