Draftstars Plays of Weekend – Rd. 15

The tips are in – check out the best plays for the weekend ahead!

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.

Luke Ryan (DEF, $13,000)

Saturday v Collingwood

Collingwood are the easiest team for defenders to score against this year and this should mean that Ryan will be cashing in. He is coming off scores of 111 and 104.

Just like in 2020, Collingwood are giving up the most uncontested marks again this year and if they are going to let Ryan chip it around the backline, he could be in for a big score.

James Aish (DEF/MID, $10,450)

Saturday v Collingwood

For the same reasons as Ryan, Aish should have a good day here against the Pies.

Not only is this a great match-up for him, he has been in ripping form himself scoring 114, 72 and 87 in his last three games and only going under 72 once in his last six games. At his price of $10k, anything over 80 is a big win here and like last time he played, maybe 110+ isn’t out of the question.

Joel Amartey (FWD, $9,510)

Saturday v Port

He’ll be very popular but we need him. Amartey has been named at centre-half-forward for the Swans and is a big target for them going up the ground.

Amartey has average 83 in his first two games and will feature in many teams this weekend, and that’s ok.

Nick Haynes (DEF, $10,500)

Sunday v Hawthorn

Coming off scores of 95 and 107, it’s safe to say that this marking machine is back to his very best. Haynes has pulled down 24 marks in the last two weeks and comes in here at a very juicy price.

Up against Hawthorn, he ticks lots of boxes and is a great pick at a risk-free price.

Tim Taranto (MID, $16,190)

Sunday v Hawthorn

This guy has averaged 125 in his last seven this year. This guy is coming off 145 and this guy plays a team who have given up the most points to midfielders this year.

Add to that, this one is at the MCG where Timmy has scored 129, 117 and 130 in his last three. Lock, load and enjoy.

Aaron Hall (MID, $14,390)

Saturday v Gold Coast

Ok… here are the reasons why you want Aaron Hall.

  • Since his concussion, he is averaging 122.
  • He plays his old team – grudge match-up!
  • The Suns give up plenty of points, in fact the MOST in the last five weeks.
  • He loves playing in Hobart with previous scores of 98, 133 and 143.
  • Two weeks ago, defenders Aish, Tucker and Ryan all hit 100 against the Suns and combined for 30 marks between them.
  • Enough said!

REMINDER: Final teams for Sunday are announced tonight and be sure to check final teams before entering your team to play.
