- $75,000 Super Saturday special – 4 games
Hawks v Tigers, Dogs v Roos, Crows v Eagles, Tigers v Bombers
Reilly O’Brien RUC, $6,800
The big Crow has more than held his own of late with some scores that make him a great option for that price. In the last six weeks he has a low score of 74 while also reaching the lofty heights of 120. He is at home against the Eagles who tend to leak a few points to opposition bigs.
Noah Balta FWD, $4,300
The fast developing Tiger is another who will take advantage of his sides starting ruckman being unavailable and he certainly plays his best footy when he has a green light to hunt the footy through the middle of the ground. He has had a couple of great weeks scoring 69 and 79 Fantasy points respectively and there is no reason he couldn’t register a career high against the Bombers.
Tim Kelly MID, $9,000
A quiet game by his lofty standards last week might see his ownership dip slightly so it is a good opportunity to grab him an take advantage of the bounce back game. He has gone over 110 on four occasions this year including a ceiling 141 and comes up against the easiest team for midfielders to score against. Add to this, Danger isn’t playing and he looks set for a big one.
Zach Merrett MID, $10,400
If we want to be among the cash, we need to nail a guy with a ceiling and the in form Merrett could well be the man. He in in sensational form with six hundreds in a row including 125, 128, 136 and 143 and faces the Tigers who have given up some huge numbers to opposition midfielders this year.
Peter Ladhams FWD, $3,500
The young Port Ruck has to be selected as a forward but the bonus is he will have plenty of hit outs with McEvoy injured. He was in fine form in the SANFL last week with 18 kicks, six handballs, five marks and 34 hit outs and a goal for 122. Obviously we cant expect that but realistically he should cover his price with ease.
