Festival of Fantasy | Day 13
Today the Eagles go up against the Blues in wet and blustery conditions at Optus Stadium, which won’t favour either team, and then Kangaroos go up against a Gawn-less Demons at the Adelaide Oval.
WEST COAST VS CARLTON 3.35PM EST
West Coast will be looking to stamp their authority on the competition going up against a fast rising Blues side. Carlton will be keen to atone for their loss to Hawthorn but West Coast are very hard to beat at home. In wet, windy and cold conditions, it will be hard game for both sides; early dominance will be key.
NORTH MELBOURNE VS MELBOURNE 6.10PM EST
Melbourne have decided to rest Max Gawn and Jack Viney for this game and Harley Bennell has been omitted after a quiet performance against the Crows last game. while North Melbourne are still trying to get their forward mix correct with popular rookie trade-in Lachlan Hosie omitted, and DPP cheapie Will Walker also not holding his spot.
Positively on the rookie front though, for those that held him, Trent Rivers has been recalled!
All these players are probably better suited to the VC rather than C…not traditionally captain filled teams…
Todd Goldstein – This is a no brainer. No Gawn and going up against Luke Jackson and probably Tom McDonald, could score 300.
Clayton Oliver – Unless Luke McDonald decides to tag him then Oliver could go bananas again. If he is clamped then Christian Petracca might be your man.
Tim Kelly – Loves being back at home boasting a five round average of 112.6, could make a mockery of the wet weather.

*not technically a new face but hasn’t played since 2018 and is very cheap*
Any of the cheap guys tempt you for next week if they hold their spot? or Maybe you’re looking at someone with a high breakeven to target? How is your team looking after two games? Let us know in the comments!
