Dees v Demons
Cats v Pies
Crows v Tigers
Alex Neal-Bullen (MID, $6,300) is an absolute steal. He has four scores over 90 which includes a whopping ceiling if he really gets going. Just to tick all possible boxes, he comes up against the Bombers who also like to play a high possession game style. Lock and load.
Jamie Elliot (FWD, $5,100) is a bargain based on his potential and it’s gems like this we need in order to save money and select the big dogs. Last week he had 85 on ANZAC Day and if he can reach anywhere near that again, it’s a great play.
Andy Otten (DEF, $4,700) Since overcoming a slow start as a defender, Otten has embraced his new utility role and his scoring has reflect that. In the past three games he has managed to kick two goals in each and the fact he showed the ability to reach 99 last week makes him an easy pick as a defender under $5K.
Rory Sloane (MID, $10,300) deserves to be in the mix for a premium position despite all the big names on the slate. Despite being such a well rounded player, it’s his tackling that impresses me the most, where he ranks equal number one in the league at an average of 10 per game (AKA, bonus 40 points).
Daniel Wells (MID, $7,700) Came in last week with low expectation after seemingly being underdone. However, Wells pleasantly surprised with a 97 on debut for the Pies and is a good price if he can get close to those heights again. Buyer beware: This bloke will either have you in the mix for a win, or embarrass you, high risk, high reward.
My shout team!
Michael Hibberd (DEF, $7,000) has always been considered Mr Reliable in the back line, consistently finding a way to get around the 90 to 100 mark. Well, he stayed true to form in his debut for the Demons, which was also his first game in almost two years. He had 27 touches, six marks and 97 while looking right at home across half back and he should be fired up for a hit out against his old club.
