Draftstars Plays of Weekend – Rd. 23

The hot tips are in! Check out the best plays for the weekend.

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.

Josh Kelly (MID, $15,960)

Saturday v Carlton

We are happy to pay-up!

Kelly is not only coming off 141, he plays the Blues who in the past he has dominated. He goes for his sixth straight 100+ score against them this week and in the past he has posted 102, 120 and 153 against them. We’re hoping for another 130+ here.

Conor Nash (MID, $6,980)

Saturday v Richmond

Are you willing to forgive his 33 last week? If you are then Nash is still a great pick against a depleted Richmond line-up. Prior to the disastrous 33, he did score 92 and 95. Nash has the ability to score but he lost his way last week and should find his touch against one of the easiest teams walking out for round 23.

Sam Menegola (MID, $13,120)

Saturday v Melbourne

Surprisingly, Melbourne are one of the easiest teams for teams to score against over the last five weeks. Menegola is coming off 132 (season-high) and will be looking to cash in against a team that has been bleeding points.

Blake Hardwick (DEF, $11,460)

Saturday v Richmond

Form is form – and Hardwick has form.

Coming off scores of 110 and 112, Hardwick is another guy we are chasing with that great match-up this week. He could score anything from 90 to 120 this week and at the price he is, that’s an absolute steal.

Kieren Strachan (R/F, $6,420)

Sunday v North Melbourne

Strachan debuted last week against Max Gawn and not many people (including us) gave the lad much hope. He played well though for 73 but meets Goldy this week in another tough assignment. However, if the big fella can produce anything like he did last week, then he is worth a shot.

Darcy Parish (MID, $15,400)

Sunday v Collingwood

Although he has only averaged 92 in his last five games, Parish needs a run this week…

  • Parish scored 150 against Collingwood in round 6
  • Last week against the Pies, Lyons (139), Zorko (122) and Neale (120) found plenty
  • Parish is coming off 111 – his best in his last four
  • Collingwood don’t tag, which is the reason for his recent downfall

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