Draftstars Plays of the Weekend – Rd. 4

Get your weekend teams set to fire with Cal’s hot tips!

Welcome back to another edition of our best Draftstars’ plays for the weekend. With another huge kitty on offer for both the Saturday and Sunday contests, we have put our Fantasy brains together to hopefully, steer you in the right directly of some cold hard cash.



  • $75k kitty on Saturday and $60k for Sunday

Good luck and please, gamble responsibly.

Chris Burgess (DEF, $7,210)

Saturday v Carlton

With Jarrod Witts on the sidelines after injuring his knee, Burgess appears to have been tapped on the shoulder to take over as the Sun’s No. 1 ruckman.

He scored 77 last week and excelled in the ruck role scoring 22pts in the last quarter. At this price we can expect a solid 60-70, a score we will welcome with open arms.

Jy Simpkin (MID, $11,610)

Sunday Vs Adelaide

His role is brilliant. Last week, Simpkin attended 31 out of a possible 34 centre bounces for the Roos as he went on to score his best score for the year with 92.

Last year, Adelaide gave up the most Fantasy points out of all teams and with that amount of CBAs, he will be right in the mix for a nice 100+ score.

Sam Docherty (DEF, $12,480)

Saturday v Suns

The Doch loves playing the Suns, a team that gives up plenty of points to defenders.

In his most recent games he has scored at ease against them with 90, 143 and 132. Last week, Adelaide’s Sholl took 9 marks floating across half-back and this will have Docherty’s name written all over it.

Isaac Cumming (DEF, $10,700)

Sunday Vs Melbourne

Even though Cumming has gone up over $1,000 in price from last week, he is still massive value.

Coming of back to back 91’s, Cumming meets a team who ranked as the easiest for defenders to score against last year, and even in 2021, they rank at No. 3.

Marc Pittonet (RUC, $9,570)

Saturday v Suns

The Sun’s don’t have a ruck. Not one. With Witts and Zac Smith still on the sidelines, they will be using “fill-ins” to take on the big Carlton ruckman.

Last week once Witts went down, Reilly O’Brien went bananas, scoring his average in the final term.

Pittonet carries the nickname of Mr. Worldwide for a reason, this guy is a star, a cheap star and one ready to shine against…190cm fill ins.

Taylor Walker (FWD, $13,360)

Sunday v Kangaroos

Make no mistake about it – Tex is on fire.

He scored 136 last week and meets a team who has been giving up plenty of points to key forwards, and even last week Josh Bruce booted ten goals against them for 152pts.

Tex is the #1 player in the Fantasy game at the moment outscoring all the bigger name players averaging 120 across his first three games.

You will have to pay though as Tex sits much higher this week than what he started at in Draftstars three weeks ago. However, you get what you pay for and this guy ticks all of the boxes this week.

REMINDER: Teams for Saturday are announced tonight with Sunday games being announced on Saturday night. Be sure to check final teams before entering your team to play.

    Do I keep Merrett’s score as Captain or risk going ruck pig Grundy or Gawn as Captain?
