What could have been a decent score last Saturday in our fantasy team of the week was ruined by Kangaroo Kayne Turner who churned out just 19 points in North Melbourne’s win over the Western Bulldogs. Our team still managed to rack up 712 points with some good scores from Josh Kelly and Jaeger O’Meara but we’ll be looking to improve as we present our AFL fantasy team of the week for the four game slate this Saturday, the 30th of June!
There are plenty of great tournaments on offer this Saturday including a $1,000 guaranteed tournament at PlayON but for the purpose of this article, we will be using the Draftstars salary model, which offers a massive $50,000 guaranteed tournament this Saturday for just $15 entry fee!
Elliot Yeo has been one of the premier fantasy players in defence for the majority of the year and should see plenty of time in the midfield on Saturday night against the Crows. Has scored 136 and 117 in his last two games and has only dropped under 90 points once in his last 10 games.
Maynard was serviceable against the Blues last weekend, scoring 79 points on 21 touches. Is just three weeks removed from a dominant performance which saw him rack up 27 touches and a whopping 144 points and should run rampant across half back against the Suns.
Taylor Adams has started to come into form of late after a bit of a slow start to the season. He has dropped under 80 points in just one of his last 6 games and should get more time in the midfield moving forward with Adam Treloar out with a hamstring injury.
All three of Hopper, Sheed and Greenwood aren’t the most consistent midfielders but are all capable of massive games. Tough to find some mid-priced midfielders with the scoring potential of these three so if we can get an 80 or 90 + from all three we will be on for a big day.
Opting for a couple of Port Adelaide forwards this weekend as I think they have arguably the easiest matchup of all of the Saturday games and should get a comfortable win with the potential for lost of points. Gray has a top score of 11 this year and while he’s been down on form of late, he thrives in Port Adelaide’s big wins.
Todd Marshall is yet to record his breakout fantasy game of yet, usually scoring in the 40s or 50s, but with Liam Jones likely to line up on Charlie Dixon, the Blues are lacking another agile tall defender to run with Marshall. I’m expecting a high number of marks from Marshall here.
Opting for a non-traditional ruckman once again this weekend after Ben Brown was serviceable for us last Saturday with 85 points in the ruck position. Roughead has only dropped under 70 points once in the last seven games and is good value for just over $10,000.
