2018 AFL Chalk, Chance or Chump: Round 6 Western Bulldogs vs Carlton
Footy, footy, footy! It’s a bad week if you don’t like footy with AFL games running on eight of ten consecutive days through this ANZAC Day period. Fortunately for us, we love footy, even when the Friday night offering is the Western Bulldogs vs Carlton.
Not much to say about this game from an entertainment viewpoint, but from a fantasy perspective, it should be a beauty with a ton of high-scoring players and coaches trying to squeeze them all into their lineups!
Once again PlayON are giving AFL DFS players some great value with a $1,000 guarantee for just $22 entry, along with multiple qualifiers for the $100,000 AFL Super Contest.
We’re here to give you a helping hand with our Chalk, Chance or Chump for the Western Bulldogs vs Carlton!
Chalk – Harry McKay (Carlton)
He might have only played three career games, but Harry McKay showed enough last week to get another game in my fantasy lineup this week. The 200cm youngster showed a bit of something last week, up against a tall opposition, picking up 4 goals and 6 marks from 10 disposals. The forward position is arguably weakest pool of fantasy players in this match, so he offers great value at just $6.0m at PlayON. He scored 75 points last week, but even a score around the 50 point mark would be excellent for that price. He also frees up your budgets to unload in a stacked midfield game.
Chance – Charlie Curnow (Carlton)
This guy is a break out star in the making. Charlie Curnow looks like Kouta and he’s starting to play like him too! After a huge start to the season, Curnow has still managed a solid output under some difficult conditions, to average 84 fantasy points for the season. Here, he comes up against a small Bulldogs side that lack key defenders, under the warmth of the roof of Etihad Stadium. If he gets enough supply, Curnow could be in for a big game so might be worth a gamble at $11.8m at PlayON.
Chump – Marcus Bontempelli (Western Bulldogs)
It hurts me to say it, but the Bont is a Chump. At least this season, he has been for fantasy coaches. Marcus Bontempelli has been spending more time up forward which has resulted in a lower-than-expected fantasy average of 78 points this season. The guy is a potential superstar, so those numbers just don’t stack up. At a price tag of $14.1m at PlayON, there are just so many other great midfield options in this game that it’s not worth the risk taking Bont. We know what he’s capable of, and maybe he can turn it around, but I won’t be risking him.
