Draftstars Plays of the Weekend – Wk 8

Here we go again – the best tips in town are right here to set you up for hopefully a weekend of fun.

Our throats might be croaky after a huge weekend of cheering the Jack Jumpers but the boys have dug deep with some of the best Draftstars’ tips in town. Make sure you check out Cal’s top six picks along with the video as the boys pick two teams across both the big Saturday and Sunday contests.



Good luck and please, gamble responsibly.

Charlie Cameron (FWD, $11,190)

Saturday v West Coast

In a game that should/could be a 100+ flogging, someone needs to kick the goals and old mate Charlie could/should have a massive day out. He has kicked goals in every game this year with 7 coming in his last two. He had a massive 108 against the Suns in round six and should be huge again.

Nic Martin (MID, $12,260)

Saturday v Hawthorn

Hawthorn are the #1 easiest team for midfielders to score against and Martin hits them with some form under his belt. He is the perfect type of player that would ton-up against the Hawks, finding plenty of free-ball all over the ground. Coming off 91 and 86 in his last two games, and the Hawks should give that a boost to what should be 100+.

Maurice Rioli (MID/FWD, $6,000)

Saturday v Collingwood

His price hasn’t moved from last week….shhhhh. Rioli scored 76 last week in the flogging of the Eagles and although this one is harder, his confidence should be at an all time high and ready to get the job done again.

Jack Steele (MID, $16,030)

Sunday v Melbourne

In Steele’s last four games he has ranged between 110-130. He has been solid… without being massive and that should change here against one of the easiest midfields to score against. He had 109 against them last year and as the captain of the Saints, he’ll be out to prove that they can challenge the premiers.

Jack Carroll (MID, $8,630)

Sunday v Adelaide

Cheap…. Coming off 87 on debut. Carroll picks himself after an impressive display last week end. The Crows aren’t that difficult to score against and with Hewett on the sidelines again, he could even have more time in the middle.

Lachie Neale (MID, $16,950)

Saturday v West Coast

Oh boy o boy – yes he costs $16,950 but he could he massive on Saturday nigh and here is why….

  • He is coming off his second 140+ for the year
  • Neale is averaging 119 in his last three games
  • WCE suck and in recent weeks they have given up some massive scores where the Tigers had 3×120+ and the Power had 8×110+
  • He is at home and loves the GABBA
  • Saturday night footy… the country will be watching and even though this should be a walk in the park, Neale will put on a show with 40+ touches as he chases 3 Brownlow votes.
