Where to Attack?
All teams have played four matches now and shown their style and method for this year.
It would be expected that cellar dwelling teams concede points to forwards and that has indeed been the case so far this season. Both the Kangaroos and Eagles have leaked scores to forwards and I particularly like Bulldogs forwards on this slate as they start heavy favourites.
Sydney and West Coast have both been teams to target in the ruck division this year, but neither will have their #1 big man playing today. Peter Ladhams is the most senior ruck option but that isn’t saying much, although I think there is value to be had on both sides.
Game Script – Bulldogs stack
Bailey J Williams ($6,000)
A minimum pricer playing as the first ruck, yes please! Williams has not shown much of a ceiling in his short career so far but we should at least be able to lock him in for 50+ points here in a favourable role.
Cody Weightman ($6,210)
Any Dogs stack should seriously consider Weightman, a forward who can kick a bag of goals on his day and has registered scores of 59 and 71 so far this year.
Luke McDonald ($11,430)
The ball will be spending plenty of time in North’s backline, so who can we expect to be the beneficiaries? Aaron Hall is an obvious one, however with Jack Ziebell going forward I also expect McDonald to get a points bump. He has hit the ton twice this year already.
Peter Ladhams ($9,940)
Ladhams should have the measure of his inexperienced Eagles opponents and has a wide range of score sources from hitouts to disposals and goals. He can be played either in the ruck or down forward on DFS.
Aaron Hall ($14,780)
See above on McDonald. I fully expect to see quite a few Hall/McDonald combinations wheeled out in DFS today, a pairing which could easily net upwards of 220 points.
