AFL Dreamteam - Building Interactive Reports for Fun!!
When the AFL season took a short break in 2020, a few coaches in my Fantasy League of Ordinary Gentlemen (FLOG) AFL dreamteam competition decided to create a little side comp for fun. Over a 10-week period we were allowed to select from a pool of AFL dreamteam players with a maximum allowed salary cap - it was a silent bid, and the idea was to fill your team (5 backs, 7 mids, 1 ruck and 5 forwards) with the highest averaging players from the 2015 dreamteam season.
Here is the Power BI Report I built to track player selections and manage which coach was winning (and yes it helped my team Boroz Boyz to victory). It includes some fantastic Power BI design and storytelling tips, including:
Embedding GIFs (noting a tip is to keep them a smaller size than what I've done here 😉)
