Fantasy Advice – Uncovering classy half backs


Do some work, and you could select a half back that could become the saviour of your team in a difficult league.

The half forward line is oft over-looked, because they tend not to deliver as much scores as the full forward or half back lines.

Last year Mattie Donnelly, David Givney and Stefan Campbell were the top scorers.

Donnelly has been moved to midfield for this year’s competition, Givney is not playing, and Campbell is a full forward.

That means that we are going to have to look elsewhere.

Armagh’s Aidan Forker has the potential to score  heavily in division three this year. He finished with 35 fantasy points last year.

Antrim’ Conor Murray is another interesting play in division three. He managed 66 fantasy  points in last year’s division four.

Derry’s James Kielt is a solid option as well. He’ll be kicking most of the Oak Leaf frees in 2017.

Tyrone’s Conor Meyler is in line for a big year. He was injured in 2016 and didn’t realise his potential.

One other player to consider, and who could be a dark horse for 2017 is Cavan’s Gerard Smith. He’s a star at club level, and could break out this year.
