Gold Coast SUNS captain Gary Ablett was asked by AFL Players’ to nominate his best AFL Fantasy picks for the 2016 season.
Which established player is in for a huge season?
Ablett says: “I think Matty Rosa will be really good for us. We felt we needed an experienced outside player. He knows the game really well and I think he’ll be a consistent player for us.”

Who do you expect to have a breakout year?
Ablett says: “I’m expecting that Steven May will take his game to another level. He’s already a very good one-on-one player and a great kick but the area of his game he’s been working on over summer is giving us a bit more attack out of the backline. ”
Steven May: SuperCoach: ($404,000 Def)
AFL Fantasy: ($291,000 Def)
Which young gun will have a big impact in 2016?
Ablett says: “Touk Miller obviously had a stand-out year and he’s followed it up with another fantastic summer. Normally it takes a young bloke two or three years to get that conditioning into the body to withstand 22 games, but he’s already there.”
Touk Miller: SuperCoach: ($394,200 Mid, Fwd)
