Now for my best and sneaky best options for today…

Dayne Zorko (MID, $9,600)

Geelong in recent weeks have been refusing to tag and that’s great news for this guy.

Coming off a huge 181 last year against the Cats, Zorko is a must have today based on the fact he can do this on any given day.

Despite only scoring 95 and 96 in his last two games, he’ll rectify that here.

Dawson Simpson (RUC, $5,300)

Let’s grab a cheapy in the rucks today and Mr. Simpson offers a fair bit of value.

Fresh off 109 last week, he meets the Saints today who are currently running with Hickey.

It’s an easy one, and although we can’t expect 100, I don’t think 85+ is off the cards at this price.

Dusty Martin (MID, $8,300)

Cheap and cheap for a reason some might say… but today is the day Dusty comes to play.

Let’s face it, he loves the big stage and with a sold out MCG, it doesn’t get much bigger than this.

With previous scores of 101, 86, 110, 114, 126, 109 and 107 against the Pies this paints a picture of exactly what I’m talking about.

Stephen Coniglio (MID, $9,600)

I have Cogs as the highest scoring Midfielder today and therefore, he’s lock away without a concern in my team.

With previous scores of 112, 115, 123 and 132 against the Saints, they are his favourite team to score against and at home where he averages 116 this year, I’m expecting big things.

Brayden Fiorini ($7,800 MID)

With Carlton conceding the most points to MID’s over the past 5 weeks expect this NEAFL pig to rack up today.

He had 43 touches, 13 tackles and 2 goals for 180 last week and even posted 168 the week before.

He’s playing for his spot today and before being dropped he was cruising around with an average of 97. Great pick against the Blues.

Lachie Whitfield (MID, $9,100)

This guy could be very special today – and I’m expecting 150… ok maybe something near that.

His history against the Saints is horrid though averaging 61 across his career, which makes them his worst team to score against by a long way.

The thing is, St Kilda give up a truck load of points to defenders and that’s why my mate Witters will be cashing in at home today.

Whitfield is GWS’ best mark-collector with 6.5 per game.

When he has collected 8+ marks this year he has scored his six highest scores this year of 114, 123, 126, 120, 150, 114.
