DFS Strat: Round 5 Demons v Tigers

↗ Clayton Oliver (MB $8,900, DS $15,400)

In what is expected to be a low scoring fantasy contest on Tuesday night finding the right premium players to roster will be critical, Oliver has averaged 29.8 Disposals in his last 10 games scoring an average of 104.9pts. In his last 2 games Oliver has only averaged 24.0 Disposals but has maintained a good average of 96.5pts mainly due to his 8.5 Tackle average.

In the corresponding game last year Oliver recorded an equal game high 32 Disposals (95pts), he has a career average of 108.5pts when recording 30 Disposals or more in a game. Oliver has scored 100pts or more in both Melbourne losses this year (Ave: 109.5pts), regardless of the result on Tuesday night his base points should be solid.

Considering the value about in other positions Oliver will likely be highly owned as a consequence, it is recommended to have him in a fair amount of your line-ups.

🔥 Max Gawn (MB $8,700, DS $14,450)

Gawn has the type of ceiling necessary in order to propel line-ups high in to a tournament placing, with only 2 options available for Tuesday night his ownership will likely be very high. Gawn is averaging 114.8pts through 4 games this season scoring 120pts or more in 2 games (Both losing games), he did not play against Richmond last year meaning Toby Nankervis had a field day finishing with a game high 131pts.

Gawn has averaged 59.3% of total game Hit Outs compared to 39.0% for Nankervis this season, the numbers don’t lie so expect Gawn to dominate the Hit Outs on Tuesday night. The difference in salary is not great so spending up to grab Gawn is more than justifiable, Nankervis does average 16.5 Disposals compared to 16.0 for Gawn.

This is not really a fail spot for Gawn, but considering his likely high ownership it might be worth just the odd couple of line-ups fading him just in case Richmond are able to limit his Ruck dominance or if injury strikes.
