Hawthorn vs Melbourne at GIANTS Stadium (HAW -2.5, 123.5)
Fremantle vs West Coast at OPTUS Stadium (WCE -20.5, 120.5)
Where to Attack
Melbourne and Hawthorn are the teams to target with backs on this slate. They are currently sitting 3rd and 4th for points conceded to the position for their opponents top 3 scorers. For those that have been reading all season you will know we lock in key defenders against Hawks every week, especially in GPPs and this slate will be no different.
Midfielders against Melbourne have been a gold mine so far this season. This is especially true for premium level mids with the Demons giving up 93 points per game to the top three opposition scorers (second most in the league). West Coast sit just behind them at 92 points per game, but this has tightened up in their wins the last three games.
Fremantle are the squad to target here with their patchwork job this season of either Darcy or Lobb getting smoked to the tune of 77 points per game. Obviously Naitanui does bring a floor as we found out last week, but we can probably get a lower ownership after he burned plenty recently.
All clear across in the three states hosting games tomorrow with no rain forecast in Sydney, Brisbane or Perth!
Jake Lever (DS $7,690, DK $3,600) / Steven May (DS $9,190, DK $5,300)
I will say it again… every week we single this play out and every week it plays off. Key defenders against the Hawks. It has been a trend going back 2 years and the beauty of this play is you can pick these players up cheap and at low ownership. It is a GPP dream. So far this year we have seen:
R1 - Harris Andrews 62
R2 - Harry Taylor 64
R3 - Dylan Grimes 72
R4 - Robbie Tarrant 59
R5 - Phil Davis 54
That was last week’s preview… let’s add the result from round 6:
R6 - Darcy Moore 80
Again, all tipped in these previews. This week it is Lever and or May. Both bring GPP winning upside at reasonable prices and have the top matchup in the league for their position on this slate. Book it!
Sam Mayes (DS $5,000, DK $3,300)
Mayes is back from the dead to get a run in the Port Adelaide team this week. A former fantasy spruik back in the day he did flash potential in younger years. Essentially if he was playing consistently, he wouldn’t be priced at the bare minimum and has certainly shown upside at this price point that could win you a GPP. He also draws a favourable matchup against the Blues with Port Adelaide solid favourites.
Elliot Yeo (DS $13,810, DK $6,900)
Nicely priced for a matchup where West Coast are heavy favourites. West Coast stacks will be the order of the day on this slate and I will start mine with Yeo through the middle. He has built into the season and showed a lot more intent in recent weeks with back to back scores of 78 and 80. He has topped 100 points already this season showing the upside is there.
Blake Acres (DS $9,860, DK $4,900)
Didn’t give us enough on debut last week, but he will still be working himself into match fitness. Had a wing to himself all game and throughout his career he has shown significant upside when playing in the midfield. The positive is we can get even lower ownership this week and I will be playing him until he hits, which is inevitable in this role.
Nic Naitanui (DS $11,870, DK $6,000) / Ben McEvoy (DS $9,730, DK $5,000)
My ruck plays will be coming from these two on this slate. McEvoy has assumed the number 1 ruck status now with Ceglar out injured. While he draws one of the tougher matchups in the league for his position he is still underpriced compared to where he’d sit if he had this role permanently this season. Then we have Naita who is thriving in the shortened quarter format. Playing more game time and rewarding us with two 86+ point games from his last four he draws an elite matchup this week against Sean Darcy who he will jump all over.
Tom Mitchell (DS $14,260, DK $7,500)
“Titch” was back to his old self last week. By that I mean scooping up every 7 metre kick he can find while also dominating on the inside. He posted 102 points in the shortened quarters and on this slate draws what has been the second-best matchup in the league for high scoring midfielders this season. While the West Coast midfielders will be popular it has been tough for them all to fire this year when everyone is playing so mixing in a Mitchell could balance it out nicely.
FADE OF THE DAY - Dom Sheed
Sheed has been the key to the last few slates without Luke Shuey in the lineup. Moving more into the midfield he has returned to form similar to last year and his grand final performance averaging over 100 fantasy points. As Shuey returns we can expect these opportunities to return to early in the season where he was struggling to break the 70 point mark.
