Will he take the next step?
I am one of those people that look back on the 2014 Fantasy season thinking “If only I followed my gut and slotted Swallow into my back line” but by the time the gravy train had rocked up to the station, it was already too late and Swallows price had risen. By about round four was the time when I realised my mistake, at that stage of the season he was averaging 117.5 points per game and tearing it up.
Fast forward to round eleven and he was still averaging a very solid 100 points and looking to have a huge season. With the DEF/MID swing option (confirmed position MID only), Swallow was one of the pick-ups of the season and looking to cement himself into the fantasy realms for years to come.

Ranked 13th in total clangers
Drafted at pick 1, 2010 National Draft
It’s no secret that Ablett is the number one midfielder at the Gold Coast Suns however there are a number of extremely talented players that get in and around it with him, David Swallow is one of those players. With a young, talented team the GCS are looking to have a huge year and make the finals for the first time
Attracting the tag. There is no hiding the fact that when the little master went down, Swallow took the tag at times and his points output dropped significantly. From round 17 to 21 he didn’t break the ton.
If you are thinking about running with David Swallow in your team it will be with the feeling that he can continue his football growth and probably crack 110 points a game on a consistent basis. If the Suns are looking to make the finals again I would imagine this young team will be hell bent on making sure they do not fade out again.
- His fantasy growth
- Wont normally attract the tag
- Is young and in a team looking to make finals
- Has a new coach, might be looking to impress
- Could lose his MID/DEF swing?
- His price tag is pretty hefty all things considered
- Will Rockets gameplay style suit the Suns?
If Swallow keeps his MID/DEF swing then he is most likely going to find a spot on my team however if he loses dual position availability I would have to have a long hard think about him. He has had an upwards trend in his output which is a great sign of things to come.
MAYBE for me
