We present our best PlayON line-up for the Saturday slate below!
Hard to look past Logan Austin this week after the two performances he has put forward in his first two games for the Saints. Scores of 97 and 112 already suggest he could be an elite defender option. Has racked up over 23 disposals in both of his games and averages 11 marks per game.
If Lachie Weller is anything he is consistent to say the least. Since round three, Wellers scores have been 79, 90, 87, 77, 77, 72, 86, 64. Pay the 8.9m for him and lock in a score of around 75 this weekend.
Really like the matchup that the Giants have this weekend against the Suns. The Suns allow the most fantasy points per game of any team in the competition and both Tim Taranto and Josh Kelly should be able to get plenty of cheap ball with no heavy tag this weekend.
The team that allows the second highest fantasy points per game is St Kilda, which is why we have gone for Zak Jones as the value play in the midfield. Has only socred over 100 once this season but has a similar play style to Andrew Gaff who absolutely tore up the Saints last weekend.
Mitch Duncan is the final midfielder. Has arguably been the most consistent elite fantasy scorer so far this season. Seems to rack up 100 points week in week out without even being noticed. Hasn’t scored under 90 this season.
As we mentioned above, I love the matchups that GWS and Sydney have, so selecting forwards from those two teams seems obvious as I think both could be on for big wins on Saturday. Ben Ronke has been okay since his 7-goal game with scores of 74, 70 and 54. I’m expecting 70-80 from him this weekend.
Langdon was fantastic last weekend, leading the Giants to a big win in Adelaide. Should have his way with the Suns defence this weekend.
Toddy Goldstein seems the obvious choice in the ruck this Saturday. Geelong have struggled to field a competitive ruckman all season and look unlikely to do so again this weekend with Rhys Stanley set to take up the duties again. Jarrod Witts racked up 47 hit-outs against the Cats in a 85 point loss last weekend.
