Woah man! The first 16 rounds have flown by us and before you know it we are approaching the pointy end of the season.
I hope all your fantasy teams are travelling along nicely and you still have a few trades in the bank come finals time. Let’s have a look at the markets for this week!
DREAM TEAM INDIVIDUAL PLAYER SCORES
Ryan Griffen Over ($1.85)/Under ($1.85) 108.5 points
As my top bro Jock Reynolds has mentioned in the weekly podcast and his videos, Griffen is bound to slow down sooner or later after catching fire a month or so ago. In the last two weeks actually he’s started showing signs of fatigue with DT scores of 86 and 95. Although this isn’t alarmingly low, it’s a long way from the 130’s he has pumping out a month ago. Just got a gut feeling that 108 points may just be out of reach for Griffen in this one dudes. Get on the unders!
Travis Boak Over ($1.85)/Under ($1.85) 98.5 points
How good’s the Boak boy been this year?! With a DT average of 101, he’s moved into the top echelon of midfielders in the fantasy football arena. Remarkably, this average of 101 is almost 20 points better than his last year’s average. His form is good – last four scores of 119, 104, 98 and 109 give me good confidence in backing him in here. Don’t worry about previous years scores in this one, because Boak is a changed man this year. I like the overs in this one!
Nathan Jones Over ($1.85)/Under ($1.85) 81.5 points
Good old Nathan Jones is one of my favourite players in the comp. When I rolled up to Gosch’s Paddock one morning in my Mr. Whippy van, I asked him where he got those sick as tatts and I popped down to the same parlour and got one myself. Only a few lucky females have been able to see where that tattoo is though man. But anyway, he’s a tough cookie is Jonesy and to pump out 108 in the rain down in Geelong last week just shows what the sort of man he is. The going will get a lot easier this week against Brisbane at the MCG. From the 10 matches in his career he’s played against the Lions, in 7 of those he’s scored over 81.5 DT points. I reckon he’ll get the job done for the Punt Club this week man. Overs!
