Super Saturday for Round 3 of the 2022 AFL Premiership Season offers a reduced slate of just 3 games as they originally planned to clear a timeslot for the AFLW grand final. That won’t temper our daily fantasy, however, as 3 game slates can often be the most fun! Draftstars have delivered with a $90k main and a wide variety of other contests for us daily fantasy lovers to get into:

GWS vs Gold Coast at GIANTS Stadium (GWS -10.5, Total 149.5)

Brisbane vs North Melbourne at the GABBA (BRI -44.5, Total 164.5)

Collingwood vs Geelong at the MCG (GEE -14.5, Total 166.5)






It is possible that the Gold Coast vs GWS game is in an absolute slop with 10-20mm of rain expected in Sydney. Keep an eye on the weather forecast as the game approaches and if the rain has set in I would be focusing on rucks and inside midfielders in the matchup.

The other two locations look to be great for football, possible showers in Melbourne but nothing too heavy to imoact the game.

Where to Attack?

Gold Coast and Geelong have given up the second and third most points to defenders through the early stages of this season. Given the weather I wouldn’t be very keen to play Giants backs against the Suns, however the Magpies backs look to be in a tasty situation.

Surprisingly the Cats have given up the most points in the league to forwards this season. This is where sample size really comes into play as the Cats looked like premiership contenders in their first game, but where then put to the sword last week by the Swans who filled up from every angle. Geelong are favourite this week so I wouldn’t necessarily be piling into Magpies forwards in this matchup.

Again we see the impact of small sample size, where through two rounds Max Gawn and Brodie Grundy are giving up the most points of all the ruckman. I am happy to ignore that as variance at this stage, but the stat that does stand out is GWS giving up 92 points per game to opposition rucks. This doesn’t surprise me and I will be attacking this, particularly given the weather expected for that game.


Game Script – Brisbane stacks (44 point favourites)


Jared Polec ($8,950) is simply priced too cheap given his fantasy scoring history. He looks to be fit again this year and has secured the position on the wing for North Melbourne. Travelling up to the Gabba to play the Lions isn’t the best matchup for an outside player like Polec, however we have seen North play keepings off in situations where things are stacked against them and that would suit a player like Polec.

Reef McInnes ($6,000) on debut should get opportunity on the inside as a replacement for Tyler Brown (who attended 6 CBAs last week). He is a big bull and at the minimum price is a great value option to return around 10x on this slate.



Patrick Dangerfield ($12,740) had an absolute shocker along with the majority of the Geelong side last week, however if there is one thing I like to back in it is a superstar fresh off a bad game. Danger might not be the player he once was at this point in his career, but as we saw in the first round he still capable of 100+ fantasy point games, and this is probably the cheapest he has ever been in daily fantasy.

Tom Green ($12,710) / Matt Rowell ($11,320)

I love these two in this matchup. The young inside contested bulls who are priced nicely in the mid range. With the rain expected to impact this game we should see a lot of stoppages, tackles and contested play. Tom Green is still far too cheap at this price point on the back of two straight 100+ point games and he will be a lock in play until he gets to that $14k price range. Rowell started the season in round 1 reminding everyone why he had so much hype when he started his career posting a massive 117 points, before backing that up with a performance that reminded us of last year with 46 points. Ownership should drop off him after that game and the conditions should suit him this week.



Dayne Zorko ($15,400) showed everyone last week that the injury niggle was nothing more than a bit of hype posting a classic Zorks like 145 point performance against the Bombers. I love his price point this week in a game where Brisbane should win by a 10+ goal margin. Dayne has always loved a fill up and I expect him to take full advantage on this slate.
