St Kilda AFL Fantasy Prices 2016

With each AFL Fantasy team price reveal, Peter from aflratings.com.au takes a look at five potential targets from each club. Click here to read Calvin’s look at the Saints over on AFL.com.au.

David Armitage MID $592K

Armitage started the 2015 season in blistering style averaging 117.1pts from his first 10 games, his final 11 games yielded an average of 97.8pts per game.  It was the first time in an 8 year career that Armitage had averaged over 100pts for a season, he is certainly worth a look as a premium starter but keep in mind those first 10 games of 2015. Armitage exceeded 30 Disposals or more in 7 of his first 9 games of 2015 and only once in his last 12 games, fortunately he maintained a healthy score at the back end of the season with a steady diet of tackles when the Disposals started to dry up. Tackles equated for 22.3% of Armitage’s overall score in 2015, it is unlikely he will dip below a 100pt average in 2016.

Leigh Montagna MID/FWD $603K

How many players can you remember having on your Fantasy roster entering their 15th year in the AFL? Montagna is as steady as they come and a very durable option in 2016, even though he played just 17 games last season not one of his games fell below 80pts being the only St Kilda player to achieve this.  Montagna hit 100pts or more in 11 of his 17 (64.7%) games 5 of which exceeded 120pts or more last season, if fully fit at Round 1 he is a must consider as a premium option.

LM4

Nick Riewoldt FWD $520K

This could be the year we need to play a forward in the forward line (Shout out to Roy) due to the limited opportunities we have this year for premium MID/FWD players, AFL Fantasy coaches will be keen to forecast which players can get an upgrade throughout the year but we need options to maintain a solid score until the upgrade rounds. Nick Riewoldt could be one very good option despite entering his 16th season, why not go with a Riewoldt/Montagna stack in your forward line combining for 31 AFL years. Riewoldt is very durable and a fitness machine, he exceeded 100pts or more in 8 games 2 of which exceeded 120pts or more last season. If you can get over the age of Riewoldt , then he should be a must consider.

NR4

Jack Steven MID $618K

If you are looking for a player who can go big in any game then Steven is a very wise choice in 2016, last season he hit 100pts or more in 14 games 8 of which exceeded 120pts or more. Steven averaged over 100pts for the first time in his 7 year career, entering 2016 he is primed to be a consistent accumulator. Steven was ranked 4th for average tackles in 2015 with 6.9 per game, tackles equated to 24.6% of his overall AFL Fantasy score. Given a fully fit Steven at Round 1, he might challenge for the No.1 AFL Fantasy player in 2016.

JS4

Dylan Roberton DEF $459K

Had to do some deep digging around the numbers to find what would be a very unique option in 2016, Roberton averaged a solid 82.9pts last season with 4 games exceeding 100pts or more. Finding the right option down back could pose some problems again for AFL Fantasy coaches in 2016, 12 of Roberton’s 20 games exceeded 80pts or more which does place him in the range of a potential target. A good one to keep an eye on in pre-season games, a definite consider if his numbers start to spike.

  • Montagna wold have to be a lock by the end of the year as a Fwd.

  • Montagna likely to be a premium forward, however I will wait and see. With his age and the saints turning to youth, he could spend further time forward. Touch to risky at this stage imo. Steven and Armitage are great, consistent premos, well worth their price. Riewoldt is just a freak and has to be considered once again. I had Roberton last year. He scored well, but will probably be in the second string of backline premos. Jack Billings is the Saints player I’m most excited about for Fanatsy this year. With forward premos lacking, and Billings having obvious potential, I can see him getting his average to 95 or so. Another year should turn his 60’s into 80’s and his 80’s into 100’s. Some good rookies there, such as Freeman, and some rookies from last year being cheap enough to be tempting (Templeton, Goddard, Murdoch, McKenzie, Acres)

    • I’m also very keen on Billings at this stage, provided he starts training soon

      • Yeah, I just saw that he hasn’t been in full training yet. That’s disappointing, but if he can make it to the nab cup, performs and no one else catches my eye until then, I’ll back him in.

  • Yes Stevens tempting round one but we need to see break evens. That said I guess if he has b/e of 140 and he gets 135 round one drops $10k – question is can you afford not to have a score of 135? I came 264th in fantasy last year (brag) but analysis to me showed at year end I had a better team than most above me as was moving up 50-100 spots rah week over last 4 rounds but obviously had not scored enough in the early rounds
