Dusty, Danger, Gaz, Lynch, 70 grand, Prelim Final, Friday night, MCG – doesn’t get better!

Few big question marks hang over this game including what Geelong will do with Dangerfield / how they will fill the void left by Hawkins.

Getting the answers to those questions right is the key to unlocking the scoring potential of the Cats who, despite what the bookies are saying, loom large as the more attractive dfs option at selection.

Unless you are building for a complete flogging by the Tigers, strongly consider taking Cats in spots to take advantage of any increased role tonight.


Here is my team you can consider using, or building around, for tonight’s Tigers v Cats clash.


Josh Caddy ($9,780): Has not lit the fantasy world alight this season but he always fronts up to play his old team and is the next guy in should any of the midfield bulls go down. Should get a favourable matchup here too and also should be low owned.

Tom Atkins ($7,930): Tackles tackles tackles. He should hit 40pts tonight through tackling so i don’t see how you can leave him out.


Tim Kelly ($12,890): With Danger spending time forward and no Duncan, Kelly must have a big game. Enjoyed a big 130 last time he played the Tigers at the G!

Cam Guthrie ($12,080): 33 touches last game and expect he continues that 30+ again here with plenty of midfield time to go around. Only concern is susceptibility to injury.

Gary Ablett ($11,860): Has not had the best finals campaign to date but I fail to see how the little champ won’t get himself up for this game. Hopefully his last fortnight scares some ownership away.

Jack Graham ($11,130): Big POD play for this team is Graham who few people will own given his last three weeks he’s averaged under 60pts. Thing with Graham is he tackles and in a prelim that happens a lot. With who he is priced around, i expect graham to be under 10% owned tonight. Tackle son!



Shane Edwards ($12,820): Form is excellent, role is secure, he is just a really safe play. No real need to overthink this, pencil him in for a 90-100 and move on.

Jayden Short ($10,300): Short could be the forgotten man tonight, he will move back to his prefered HBF and rack up the disposals, driving Richmond off half back, taking the kick ins etc. A lot safer than his recent form suggests.


Rhys Stanley ($11,050): Assuming he is not subbed out prior to bounce, Stanley is the obvious ‘safe’ play in the ruck with the Tigers rucks sharing and Esava likely to get heaps of attention tonight sans Hawkins.
