The first matchup of round 14, Sees the Eagles host the Bombers at Optus Stadium. The Eagles will be looking to bounce back from a disappointing result against the Swans, they had the weekend off last week due to the bye and will be itching to get back out there. The Bombers will head west after a solid win against the hawks but this will be a tough matchup for them. There is a nice $40,000 prize pool for tonight’s matchup.
Elliot Yeo @10,100 – Should be back this week return from that slight lower leg issue. Before missing that game he was sampling dominating every game, getting plenty of touches but the amount of tackling has just been elite. He is averaging 24 disposals and 7 tackles this year averaging 118 in his last three.
Shannon Hurn @9,000 – Should return after a slight niggle in his hamstring which made him miss last week. His kick to handball ratio is elite for our Moneyball players. We all know that a player scores more if they kick the ball instead of handball. Hurn is having a career best season this year averaging 21 kicks and only 5 handballs and 8 marks averaging 99 points this season.
Andrew Gaff @10,400 – Has been fantastic this year and is extremely good at home. Averaging massive numbers at Optus this season and hasn’t gone under 100 during that period. The question that needs to be asked who will Dylan Clarke go to. I think the likely option could be either Gaff or Shuey.
Dyson Heppell @8,800 – I always like to pick the captain on a road trip and as option, I’ve seen in many occasion that the captain of the away team always seems to find an extra gear when on the road. Can Heppell do the same in this matchup, I’ll be giving him ago.
Dylan Clarke @3,500 – We need these cheaper options and even though he tags should be good enough to get a 60-70 and we need these players to pay up for the best players
Tom Hickey @6,700 – I’m going with Hickey in the matchup tonight, It feels like he has a high ceiling then Bellchambers, always a bonus that he is playing at home. I don’t see to much between the two but I like Hickey.
Josh Kennedy @ 5,900 or Jack Darling @ 6,200 – Not a lot of major options in the forward line again tonight. I would suggest going either Kennedy or Darling tonight, I can see one of them going big tonight or being solid enough. I pretty confident the Eagles will get the job done tonight. So expect one of the key forwards to get a few goals.
Kyle Langford @7,000 – Playing some midfield minutes in recent weeks and should be solid enough again tonight and should be considered as a forward option for our Moneyball teams tonight. I would expect at least 80 tonight but may be tough on the road.
