Welcome to round 14 of the AFL! Once again we kick things off with an interesting match-up this Thursday night. We have the high-flying West Coast up against the ever-inconsistent Essendon. The Bombers will want to bring nothing short of their A-game to keep up with the Eagles this week.

As always, Moneyball has your DFS needs covered with the AFL $6,000 WCE vs Essendon Special. Contest closes Thursday 8:10PM AEST.

Forwards

Liam Ryan ($4,400)

Starting things off with a great value pick tonight. The youngster has played well in his 4 matches this season and with a couple of key forwards missing, it will be up to Ryan to shoulder a lot of the goal kicking.

Devon Smith ($8,900)

A slight question mark over his fitness after injuring his calf a couple weeks ago but he should be right to play this week. Smith has been one of the highest scoring forwards this year as he racks up a lot of possessions and sees plenty of the ball.

Midfielders

Zach Merrett ($9,200)

There is a handful of quality midfielders in this match with Merrett being one of them. Coming off 126 fantasy points last match which included 29 disposals, Merrett will need to re create something similar to give the Bombers any hope.

Jack Redden ($7,800)

Redden looks like a good play at a mid-range price. He has had some big scores so far this year and has been an unsung hero in a dominant West Coast midfield.

Defenders

Adam Saad ($5,900)

The young Essendon defender has been in good form recently and has been hitting some decent value for fantasy players taking a punt on him. Looks a good play to free up some room for some of the big names.

Elliot Yeo ($10,000)

One of the stars of the competition this year, the form of Yeo is a major reason the Eagles sit where they are on the ladder. He can kick goals, tackle and get plenty of ball – an absolute perfect combination for huge DFS points!

Ruckman

Nick Naitanui ($7,300)

Gotta roll with big ‘Nic Nat’ here tonight. Starting to work into his role nicely and looks primed for a big second half of the season. I think the extra salary spent here will be well worth your while up against his opposite ruck tonight!
