AFL Daily Fantasy Tips 2024: Round 5 Sunday

April 14th 2024, 11:33am, By: Trent Callen

AFL Fantasy Tips

Sunday afternoon football showcases two games with Geelong and North butting heads at GMHBA, before we take a trip across the Nullarbor for West Coast to do battle with Richmond at Optus Stadium.

Both matches promise to be an entertaining watch with a lot on the line especially in the latter game, as an upset potentially could be on the cards against an undermanned Tigers outfit who have been decimated by injury.

Draftstars have been kind enough to cover us with a whopping $60,000 main contest over the fixtured Sunday games, along with a trio of supplementary options that you may take a liking to for the final day of Round 5 action.

AFL $60,000+ Sunday 

AFL $5,000+ Sunday High Roller

AFL $3,000+ Sunday $2 Mini

AFL $2,000+ Sunday Fiver

The AFL Star contest is back for 2024 and Draftstars are offering the biggest prize pool in Australian DFS history with a $1 million guaranteed final with $250,000 top prize! There are qualifiers and satellites running for every AFL match, while there will also be a sprinkling of qualifiers across other sports such as NRL and NBA.

Meanwhile the 1000 AFL Target contests are set to return to Draftstars for the first time since 2018. Enter the contest and hit the 1000-point barrier with your team to scoop the jackpot!

Where to Attack

Whilst the first cab off the rank in terms of games is expected to be one way traffic, with the Cats set to give North a bath at home, I want to turn your attention to the Eagles Tigers matchup with trends in mind from previous encounters.

After West Coast fired a warning shot by challenging flag hopefuls Sydney to the wire, it became noticeable their midfield was able to rise to the level. With some continuity now between players and a good balance of youth as well as experience, the Adam Simpson coached side should not be underestimated.

Game Script – Eagles midfielders come to play, Tigers back with their work cut out.


Value Plays

Nick Larkey ($7,480) has exactly reached the heights of last year, but we know from experience he’s deadly accurate and only takes one or two early for him to heat up. Looms as a big value play prospect simply because he is due.

Tom Brown ($8,330) has quickly come on hand as one of the premier kicks in the competition albeit off the back of a small sample size. Looks to be a cool customer under pressure and earns another chance to try string together some consistency.


Mid-Priced Plays

Charlie Comben ($10,290) was welcomed back into the Roos’ senior side after a dominant VFL performance the week prior. Relished his new role as in intercepting tall defender, now just has to prove it wasn’t a fluke.

Oliver Dempsey ($10,670) continues to grow in his hybrid half forward role that gives him the licence to operate further afield hunting the footy and therefore fantasy points in turn. Continues to impress averaging a tick under 80.


Premium Plays

Elliott Yeo ($14,430) has been one of the Eagles shining lights, fresh off an injury ridden past couple of years he is slowly working back to his best averaging close to a ton in the engine room for West Coast.
