DFS Strat: Round 5 Magpies v Bombers

↘ Brodie Grundy (MB $10,100, DS $16,300)

Grundy is well worth discussing considering his high salary on Wednesday, he has the 2nd highest salary on both platforms. In the last 2 weeks Grundy has averaged 29.0 Disposals & 36.0 Hit Outs, he has averaged 131.3pts since Round 2.

In 2 games against Essendon last year Grundy averaged 12.5 Disposals for an average of 79.0pts, Mason Cox played in both games and shared Ruck duties while Tom Bellchambers outscored Grundy 84-72 in Round 16. Grundy has taken over the majority of Ruck duties at Collingwood this year and his scores are reflective of that move,

Considering his high price tag Grundy is likely to be ignored by a fair majority of DFS players, it will be very difficult for him to exceed his salary expectations on both platforms. It is a possible fail spot for Grundy as his recent form may be unsustainable, but based on his current salary he is definitely worth fading.

 

🎯 DFS Projections & Targets: Round 5 Magpies v Bombers

📊 2018 AFL Fantasy Team Points

 

♦ Joe Daniher (MB $7,100, DS $10,050)

There is nothing more appealing than jumping on an underperforming ceiling player at great value in DFS, while most will be recently biased by low scores it can be the perfect time to roster such a player especially with a low-moderate ownership % likely.

Daniher has been poor this year averaging 62.8pts with a high score of 75pts in Round 3, he kicked 3 Goals in each game last year against Collingwood scoring 101pts in both games. Daniher is currently averaging 2.8 scoring shots per game, in 2017 he averaged 4.5 scoring shots per game.

The Magpies conceded an average of 55.5 Inside 50s in their 2 losses this year for 98.0pts against, if you think the Bombers can win on Wednesday then rostering Daniher could be well worth the investment.
