2018 AFL: Daily Fantasy Tips for Round 22

It’s the weekend we have been waiting for all AFL season! We have a special edition of our AFL fantasy team of the week in Round 22 as PlayON finally host their massive $100,000 guaranteed tournament this Sunday! There are still plenty of chances left on Friday and Saturday to earn tickets to the event or you can pay the $220 entry fee.

Head over to PlayON now to create an account and get in on the action to hopefully win some free tickets into the tournament or check out our team of the week for the Sunday slate at PlayON below.

Defenders: Angus Brayshaw, Caleb Marchbank

Brayshaw has been one of the most in form players in all of fantasy this year. He avereges 104 points and has just one score under 100 in his last seven. Averages 125.5 over his last two games and while West Coast are one of the better teams at allowing points to midfielders, they did give up 118 and 106 to Tom Jonas and Jasper Pittard on the weekend, who both play similar midfield/half back roles as Brayshaw.

Only had 24 points last weekend but I still hold out hope for Marchbank as he has shown the abliilty to be that running and kicking half back flanker that the Blues desperately need. Racked up 78 points two weeks ago and we think the ball should be in his area most of the night this weekend.

Midfielders/Flex: Patrick Cripps, Jack Macrae, Luke Shuey, Riley Knight

Cripps and Macae can likely be pencilled in for 100s this weekend. They play against each other, which is great news for both of them as both teams are in the top seven in the league in terms of points allowed to midfielders. Cripps hasn’t dipped under the 100 point mark in his last four games and scored 112 the last time these two teams played.

Macrae racked up 145 points in that same game, and since coming back from injury on the 14th of July has scores of 133, 76, 112, 132 and 118. Should dominate a lacklustre Blues side. Luke Shuey missed Round 19 through injury but apart from that, hasn’t dipped under 90 points in his sic games. Should rack up more touches with Andrew Gaff out of the side.

Riley Knight comes back into the Adelaide side this weekend after missing Round 21 with injury. Is one of the better scoring players around the $7m mark and has a decent matchup against the Roos this weekend who are in the top half of the league in terms of points allowed to centres and forwards.

Forwards: Billy Gowers, Fergus Greene

Going Bulldogs heavy in the forward line this weekend because I think that the Dogs will absolutely trounce the Blues at Etihad. They have had three great wins in a row and Greene and Gowers should see plenty of ball inside 50 this weekend. Also both cheap options, especially Greene who has racke dup 78 and 64 in his last two games and is priced at just $6.4m.

Ruck: Matthew Lobbe

Has been one of the shining fantasy lights for the Blues since first choice ruckman Matthew Kreuzer went down with injury. Since coming into the side he has scores of 86, 76 and 103 last weekend against the Dockers. Is the obvious choice this weekend against the Bulldogs who allow the most points to opposition ruckman in the league.
