Sunday Football is back ladies and gentleman with the JLT Series bringing you the final two games of the weekend, please keep in mind that not all players will be playing the full game as it is only pre-season so expect those who are coming back from injury or the premium players to be taken off at some stage. So sit back, relax, enjoy and check out who makes our AFL daily fantasy tips
Stefan Martin – $8,300
If you can fit Stefan Martin into your team i’d expect a decent return for your investment, he is one of the more mobile ruckmen of the competition, this allows for more touches around the ground. Martin struggled for a while last year after his concussion but after a full pre-season he will be ready to go, coming up against a young Daniel Currie, Martins experience should give him an even further advantage.
Tom J. Lynch – $8,000
Tom Lynch was a surprise factor for me last season, big bodied youngster who can take a big grab and kick straight, he will be coming up against the defense of the Brisbane Lion. Now I know this is just a pre-season match-up but lets be real the Lions don’t have the greatest defense at this point in time, blooding a lot of youngsters down back. Lynch should be in line for a nice bag.
Nathan Hrovat – $5,000
Hrovat has come across from the premiership winning team in the Western Bulldogs, he’ll be coming out today to show them what they’ve lost and to show the Roos he should be in their best 22. He’s a very handy player who spends a majority of his time in the forward line but can go through the middle to pick up some handy points there too, priced nicely at $5k he should be able to slot right in.
Luke Parker – $9,200
Parker is one of those midfielders every team wish they had, he runs hard, he tackles hard and he gets the ball a lot, Parker last season was a point scoring machine. Looking to get his first run around for the season under way i’m sure he’s just raring to go, be wary though as he is one of the swans premium midfielders so they may wrap him up in cotton wool by half time or 3 quarter time. However the way he scores still wouldn’t surprise me if he cracked the three figure marker before then.
Michael Barlow – $8,900
Last year Michael Barlow made just about every fantasy player scratch their heads wondering what happened to the scoring machine that once was Michael Barlow. This year he gets to have a fresh start with the Gold Coast Suns. With some notable absentees from the Suns line up, Barlow will be in line for additional minutes through the middle, this will only help his scoring output against the Lions.
David Swallow – $5,600
It’s been a fair while since we’ve seen the name David Swallow on the team sheet for a game of Football, but at last it’s finally happened once again, prior to his injury his name was coming up next to the best of them. He’s a midfielder that knows how to get the ball and uses it well, first game back from injury he may see the bench early on, but at just $5.6k he’s going to be hard to pass up.
Kade Kolodjashnij – $6,300
Kolodjhashnij showed he has the potential to score and score well a couple seasons ago, he took a bit of a backwards step last season, but he did suffer from injuries throughout. He’ll be looking to come back into the team this season with a bit of fire and to show everyone that it wasn’t just a once off season. Kolodjhashnij’s got some key players back into the line up so this should give him some additional freedom to run off his man and receive the ball running out of the backline.
Marley Williams – $5,100
Williams has come across from the Pies this season, first game for a new team in the Roos and he will be looking to show them what he can do. He loves receiving the ball off the half-back line and going for a run, he’s speedy and can kick the ball a long way too. He’s also been known to make an appearance upon the goal sheet, at $5.1k he’s poised to just slot straight into your lineup.
