DFS Strat: Week 1 Finals Tigers v Hawks

📈 Tom Mitchell (DS $19,010)

Mitchell is the only player priced over $15K tonight, he averaged 129.2pts during the H&A season scoring 100pts or more in 77.3% of games and 120pts or more in 63.6% of games. Mitchell averaged 134.7pts in his final 11 games of the H&A season posting a career high 195pts in Round 15 against the Giants, he averaged 103.5pts in his last 2 games.

Since moving to Hawthorn Mitchell has averaged 38.5 Disposals (Ave: 123.5pts) against Richmond, he recorded 42 Disposals for 148pts in Round 3 this year against the Tigers.

Wet & slippery conditions are expected at the MCG tonight, when recording 8 Tackles or more Mitchell has averaged 147.1pts this season. The Tigers are unlikely to place a hard tag on Mitchell early, he is a worthwhile consideration even at his high salary.

 

🎯 DFS Projections & Targets: Tigers v Hawks

 

👆Toby Nankervis (DS $12,640)

The choice at Ruck tonight could be the difference at the final siren, while those multi entering should have a decent spread between Nankervis & McEvoy those with a narrow range of entries are in the market for one option only.

Nankervis (Season Ave: 89.2pts) will Ruck solo against the Hawks compared to McEvoy sharing duties with Ceglar (Check on any late changes at Final Teams, especially due to weather conditions), Nank has scored 97pts in each of his last 2 games against the Hawks.

Expected wet & slippery conditions could favour Nankervis, he has averaged 102.8pts when recording 5 Tackles or more this season, in the last 2 games against the Tigers he has averaged 26.0 Hit Outs compared to 34.5 Hit Outs for McEvoy as solo Ruck.

If you have only 1 option in selecting a Ruck tonight, Nankervis should be a solid choice.
