Good luck and please, gamble responsibly

Jaiden Stephenson (MID/FWD, 11,350)

Saturday v Collingwood

Last week, Gold Coast had some massive scores against the Pies, who.. as we know give up the most amount of points across the league. Ellis (169), Miller (130), Greenwood (124) and Bowes (113) all proved that there are plenty of points to go around and there is no reason why Stephenson wont be cashing in.

He has averaged 85 in his last three games and should receive a bump on that with this match-up.

Nick Bryan (RUC, $7,750)

Saturday v GWS

67 on debut is enough for this ruckman. Bryan had 12 disposals and 19 hit outs in his first hit-out and although this is a tough match-up against Matt Flynn’s coach, Shane Mumford… anything over 60 here is just what we need.

Josh Daicos (MID, $10,700)

Saturday v North Melbourne

Daicos has moved back into the midfield where he belongs and his recent scores of 99 and 77 reflect this. Daicos averaged 88 last year and looks set to be back on track after a slight change to his role. A role he dominates.

Hugh McCluggage (MID, $14,290)

Sunday v Fremantle

With previous scores of 119, 108, 128, 113 and 118 – you’ll struggle to find a more inform man in the game at the moment. His match-up is juicy as well as he takes on the Dockers. A lowest score of 108 in his last five is super impressive.

Joe Daniher (FWD/RUC, $10,200)

Sunday v Fremantle

Not what we call a “sexy pick” but Daniher has been getting it done averaging 91 in the last three games.

Last week against the Dockers, Jack Darling 114 (3.2g) was upper impressive alongside another forward in Jake Waterman 89 (3g).

Daniher can plug an important ruck spot, which will save you plenty of coin for the rest of your team.

Aaron Hall (DEF, $11,430)

Saturday v Collingwood

Hall took 12 marks last week. Remember that. This is important.

Last week against Collingwood, the Gold Players players took marks with ease. Collingwood give up the most marks this year and the most uncontested as well. This suits Hall so bad it’s not funny.

Hall scored 143 last week… and in games when he hasn’t been vested or injured this year, he has averaged 122. The other thing to add into this equation is Hall’s price. He is still very cheap based on what he can achieve as his low scores (11, 35) from wearing a vest and being injured, have held down his price so far this season.

Lock and load – expect something massive.

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.
