We welcome you to another Saturday filled with footy goodness, there are some cracker match ups today around the grounds, I myself cannot wait, will be an glorious day of footy. So without further ado, here are my AFL fantasy tips for todays Saturday Slam match-ups:

AFL Saturday Slam

Rucks

Matthew Kreuzer – $8,000

Kreuzer will be coming up against Longer, i believe Kreuzer will have the upper hand in the strength and mobility battle of this match, giving Kreuzer far better opportunity to take those contested marks and get the ruck taps around the ground, look forward to seeing a big score out of Kreuzer.

Defenders

Dylan Roberton – $8,700

Roberton continues to show us he is here to play week in week out, racking up the big numbers, taking a lot of uncontested marks for us and even popping up for a goal or two here and there, he is literally playing like a fantasy king these days, if you can afford him put him in.

Marco Paparone – $5,600

Paparone scored a ton last week, playing in the Lions backline where the ball was basically all day against the Swans, i’m expecting this week to be no different with the Lions coming up against the revitalized Hawks who have now found their mojo back. Don’t expect him to get the ton this week but i am expecting a nice output from him.

Midfielders

Matt Crouch – $9,500

Crouch seems to have shaken his slow-ish start to the season off producing us with 2 real nice scores over the last couple weeks, he has been able to accumulate a ton of the ball and is a elite user of the ball, loving his game at the moment and it all conspired when his brother Brad came back into the lineup! I guess for Matt Crouch sibling rivalry is a thing even if you’re on the same team.

Daniel Wells – $7,800

Wells is coming back into the Pies lineup this weekend, after needing a rest from playing 2 games in a row after coming back from injury, however he brings into the pies midfield some speed and some classy use of the ball, with Treloar out this weekend will be looking forward to see if Wells can lift to fill the space.

George Horlin-Smith – $5,500

Horlin-Smith is continuing to show the AFL community why he deserves to be out their in the Cats best 22, he has been a solid contributor to them so far this season and stepping up in some really important moments throughout the game, the Cats already have Selwood and Dangerfield running through their midfield but they keep finding these young guys to make it even scarier to face them.

Forwards

Cameron Pederson – $6,000

Pederson is seriously stepping up in the wake of the Gawn and Spencer injuries, even when those guys come back fit its going to be hard leaving him out of the side, he is playing some phenomenal football and is not taking a backwards step in the ruck contests no matter who he comes up against, he is a very mobile big man and has played as a forward for a majority of his career so when he goes into the forward line for the Demons he is also a very dangerous option.

Jack Sinclair – $4,900

Sinclair is another of the Saints youngsters that they’ve come across who can seriously play some good Footy, he has played 2 games so far this year and is averaging 94FP, for a youngster to come into the team and produce the numbers he has the Saints recruiters are doing something right, even if he hits 65FP this weekend i’ll be happy with that for his price, anything more is an added bonus.
