The three games on this slate are as follows:
Melbourne vs GWS at MCG (bookmarkers’ total 164.5, line GWS -9.5)
St Kilda vs Carlton at Marvel Stadium (bookmakers’ total 167.5, STK -14.5)
Fremantle vs Brisbane at Optus Stadium (bookmakers’ total 173.5, FRE -6.5)
Where to Attack
Carlton stand out above all others as the team to target on this slate conceding the most points in the league this year through 9 rounds. At the other end of the spectrum GWS are the worst matchup in the league this year giving up just 1,445 points per game.
If there is any position to roster Carlton players on this slate it will be their defenders. St Kilda have given up the second most points to the oppositions top 3 scoring backs this year at 93 points per player.
Carlton are giving up the most points in the league to midfielders this year and we got a full frontal on what they can mean last week with GWS lighting up like a slot machine. Melbourne have also conceded high scores to mid fielders this year at 91 points per player.
The two stalwarts that you avoid at all costs are on this slate with Max Gawn conceding just 59 points per game to number 1 rucks this year, and Stefan Martin giving up just 71 points. The stand out team to target is… surprise surprise Carlton, who have given up an unbelievable 111 points per game to opposition number 1 rucks.
Brett Bewley (MB $3,900, DS $5,000) debuts as a mature age recruit who has been finding plenty of football WAFL where he is averaging 20 touches, 4 marks and 4 tackles. At bare minimum pricing he looks to be a lock and load play and is likely to be the highest owned player on the slate.
Josh Battle (MB $5,900, DS $8,940) brings massive GPP upside at this price point notching up 100 points in two of his last four games. Both of these scores were at Marvel Stadium where he has averaged 74.5 fantasy points over his last 5 games. On this slate he goes against Carlton who have given up the most fantasy points in the league this year and 90 points per game to the oppositions top 3 scoring defenders.
MID PRICED PLAYS
Rowan Marshall (MB $7,100, DS $12,170) is another player who brings GPP upside with a ceiling of 120 points. As noted above he has the best matchup in the league against the Blues who have given up an obscene amount of points to rucks this year.
Jack Billings (MB $8,500, DS $13,560) has been playing more midfield time this season and it has reflected in his scores. Billings has averaged 96.7 fantasy points in 2019, with 4 scores over 100 points and a ceiling of 120+. On this slate he has the an elite matchup against Carlton who have given up the most points in the league to midfielders this year.
Lachie Neale (MB $9,600, DS $15,630) brings some old fashioned DFS revenge narrative on this slate as he heads back West to take on his old club Fremantle. The Dockers have only tagged in one match this year according to our tagger tool:
Neale brings massive 130+ fantasy point upside and without a dribbler in his pocket and the incentive of going against his old club this looks like a matchup prime for him to hit his ceiling.
