AFL Daily Fantasy Picks & Tips for Round 2

April 1st 2016, 10:43am, By: admin

As part of our Daily Fantasy Sports coverage here at Before You Bet, we’ll be bringing you regular DFS strategy articles to help you set your fantasy line ups and improve your DFS game.

We have analysed the AFL Round 2 fixture and listed our daily fantasy picks and tips for the tournament that can help you score big and win you the cash this weekend!

Note: All prices and positions are courtesy of Fantasy Games Australia and based on a $115,000 salary cap


Heath Shaw (GWS) DEF
$20,300 - Rd2 Opponent: Geelong

While Shaw was affected in SuperCoach by his Disposal Efficiency, he managed to pump out one of the biggest scores for a defender at Fantasy Games.  117 pts from his 30 touches!  Just keeps racking them up down back and we would expect another big one against the Cats on Sunday.

Patrick Dangerfield (GEE) MID
$21,600 - Rd2 Opponent: GWS

The hype player at the moment!  Has taken Geelong by storm on debut, and instantly a crowd favourite after his 43 touches against Hawthorn on Easter Monday.  That translated to a massive 141 points at Fantasy Games.  What’s to stop him having another blinder this week?

Tom Mitchell (SYD) MID
$18,800 – Rd2 Opponent: Carlton

He had a ‘totally complete’ fantasy performance in Round 1 – scoring points in every category on his way to a mammoth 142 points. With the game predicted to pan out in the same fashion for Sydney, he will have the time and space to score this well again. With other high-priced midfielders in tough match-ups, he could very well be a solid captain choice.


Sam Kerridge (CARL) MID
$4,600 - Rd2 Opponent: Sydney

Kerridge is one the best value players in the AFL.  101 points against Richmond in the season opener, makes him the best cost-to-points ratio player in the game.  Adding Kerridge to your midfield will enable you to splash out for premiums elsewhere. 

Mark LeCras (WCE) FWD
$4,700 - Rd2 Opponent: Hawthorn

LeCras carried his pre-season form into the Round 1 clash with Brisbane. He often doesn’t get the headlines, but with 25 disposals, 9 marks and 2 goals, he performed amazing in fantasy terms. He has not had that price rise yet, and despite a tough match-up against Hawthorn, he is the best value option of the forwards.

Matthew Leuenberger (ESS) RUCK
$10,400 - Rd2 Opponent: Melbourne

Most starting Ruckmen are double the price of Leuenberger but won’t necessarily give you double the amount of points.  94 points against the Suns last week wasn’t a bad return on debut for the Bombers, especially for that price.  It will enable you to load up on the big guns in the midfield and forward line.


Good luck, Coaches!


Always Gamble Responsibly.
