Some weather and plenty of min-pricers have thrown up some selection headaches for coaches in this great little three-gamer

With plenty of rookie options and star players in great spots, this is going to come down to those one or two unique hail-mary plays to differentiate your lineup enough to really contend at the top.


Here is my team you can consider using, or building around, for the Sunday $40,000+ contest


Toby Greene ($9,910): The Giants are playing the Blues after a week where Carlton played ok. Enough said. Can see a real down game for the Blues here and can see plenty of points in that Giants forward line so we are targeting that heavily here.

Jeremy Cameron ($12,260): See above. No Jones only helps Cameron’s chances as does the absence of Steven Coniglio who has been spending a lot of time as a medium sized forward target. Bag beckons.


Dion Prestia ($12,700): The meatball has been quiet lately but he gets a bump with the absence of Jack Ross and playing the Hawks at the G feels like a great 110-120 game for him at what will be excellent ownership. Will not want to get schooled by former Suns teammate JOM. If Prestia gets through the game (always a risk) i can see three figures no worries.

Brayden Fiorini ($14,570): No Touk Miller in a game that will be rain-affected means the Suns midfield who tackle should go well today. Fiorini will get bulk onball minutes and should return a solid 120pter here.

Tim Taranto ($14,760): We continue our GWS-stack with Taranto who gets a big bump in the absence of Coniglio. Will dominate this game. Chalky but worth it.

Joe Atley ($5,000):With rain forecast in Adelaide today taking Atley seems less of a risk because the kid loves to tackle and is a clearance, contested player.



Zac Williams ($12,230): We’ve come this far with our GWS stack so lets go all in with two running intercept defenders in Williams and Haynes. Carlton’s form is see-sawing at best this season and after being right up last week, we are pushing a few chips into the Blues wasting their disposal going forward today.

Nick Haynes ($11,060): see above. Anytime the Blues miss their forward fifty this team should benefit.


Ivan Soldo ($7,500): With a diverse range of ruck options i feel Soldo will be the one who goes underowned who could produce a strong value game here. His VFL numbers are solid and at that price he needs 25 hitouts a few tackles and maybe half a dozen disposals to not kill your team.
