Draftstars Plays of Weekend – Rd. 9

Get your Draftstars team ready to fire for round 9!

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.

Tom Wilson (FWD, $5,000)

Saturday v Sydney

This Collingwood rookie has been lighting it up in the VFL with scores of 120 and 98 in recent weeks. At this price, he is minimal risk. It’s a tough match-up though against the Swans at the SCG but his role should be good coming off the wing and the half-back flank. Add to this his basketball background, he’ll be a popular pick.

The Sydney Duo

Lloyd (DEF, $14,960) & Mills (MID/DEF, $15,490)

Saturday v Collingwood

Yes – take both!

This year, Collingwood give up 102pts to the top three scoring opposition defenders. They give up 117 to the top three scoring midfielders and these two tick both of these boxes.

Lloyd has averaged 107 in his last three and Mills has averaged 122 over this time proving the point that you need them both! Enjoy and thank me later!

Josh Kelly (MID/FWD, $13,300)

Saturday v Richmond

Back on the wing – and about bloody time.

His scores of 105 and 121 definitely indicate a role change and this is from a guy who has averaged 115+ in the past.

Up against the depleted Tiger’s midfielder, expect this A-List star to have a day out… once again.

Jack Crisp (DEF/MID, $14,510)

Saturday v Sydney

UNIQUE and under – the – radar.

Crisp has had a huge four weeks scoring 126, 71, 104 and 124. The Magpies are struggling and while they crumble, Crisp is standing tall.

Ronin O’Connor (MID, $5,000)

Sunday v West Coast

The former WAFL Colts Premierships captain has been on fire in the SANFL scoring 77, 99, and 89. This 191cm inside bull is 20 years of age and comes from the 2019 AFL Draft and finally gets his chance. Not a bad match-up over in the west, hopefully he can find that extra space and whip up a 60+.

James Harmes (DEF/MID, $10,050)

Sunday v Carlton

Alright – he’s a popular trade in AFL Fantasy this week but in Draftstars he is so cheap it’s not funny. He started round one with 86, before hurting his wrist and sitting out a number of weeks.

He then returned via the VFL for a monster score and then played last week for 100.

The role is there for Harmes. He is in the guts, right where he averaged 96 back in 2019. At his price, you can’t go wrong. He’ll be very popular on the Sunday slate but that’s perfectly ok. Don’t get fancy – just lock him in against the struggling Blues.

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.
