AFL Fantasy Match Day Finals – Semis

nabaflfantasymatchday

AFL Fantasy Match Day continues this weekend into the Semi Finals. This weekend the games are the Cats v Power on Friday night and Swans v Blues on Saturday night. Don’t forget that there is $1000 up for grabs for both of these games and also the preliminary finals games with a massive $3000 for the Grand Final.

If you would like to be part of our 3100+ strong league, sign up at fantasymatchday.afl.com.au with the league code of 612437.

Even if you didn’t enter last week, you can enter your teams for this weekends games as there is no overall prize… they are all stand alone games. Don’t forget that on Saturday you’ll need to clear your Friday night team and update it with Swans and Blues players.

I’ve had a look at the match ups for this weekend and here are some ‘tips’ for this weekend. If you’ve got some ideas, share them in the comments.

 

Geelong v Port Adelaide

LOCKOUT: Friday 7:50pm AEST

LOBBE-MatthewIt’s hard to look past Joel Selwood against the Power to have in your team and to lock in as captain. In Round 9, he was subbed out on 75 at three-quarter time while battling a knock to the left elbow. In Round 20, he kicked 4 goals while being tagged by more on his way to a massive 157 points. There won’t be many teams that will overlook Matthew Lobbe as their ruckman. He had 145 against the Cats last time and is coming off 99 against the Pies on the weekend. Steve Johnson will of course be in the majority of teams as the top averaging DT player this year and his form on the Power. He had 109 and 144 on them this year including a huge 33 disposal game while being tagged by Kane Cornes in Round 9. While Mathew Stokes might be the other forward selected but I would look at Allen Christensen who scored 110 and 117 this year on the Power. Ignore Corey Enright as he may not get up for the game and even if he does play, his knee injury is a worry and would certainly affect his DT output.

Sydney v Carlton

LOCKOUT: Saturday 7:45pm AEST

GIBBS BryceAfter their big win last week, it’s hard not to look at some Blues and get excited. If Bryce Gibbs plays through the midfield, then we’ll have to pick him. He had 119 against the Swans playing in the guts in Round 14. It pissed down with rain at the SCG that night, so I don’t want to read too much into those results. The ruck is interesting as there are a couple of options of players who could go big… but there is noone I’m confident on. Shane Mumford was terrible last week (29 and subbed out) after smashing it the week before. Matthew Kreuzer is battling injury so won’t be at 100% going into this week. It might be worth taking a punt onĀ Mike Pyke. In the midfield, the Swans have the big dogs in Kieren Jack, Dan Hannebery, Ryan O’Keefe and Josh P Kennedy. The Blues love tag (Jack was kept to 16 touches and Hannebery to 20 last time). Cotchin was the only Tiger to score over 100 last week. But if you look across finals DT scores, not many players go over the ton so don’t read too much into that.
