Collingwood

Brodie Grundy (DK $9,100, DS $18,740) was quiet in Round 8 scoring just 62pts, he has scored fewer than 63pts in 2 of his last 3 games.

The match-up for Grundy on Sunday is decent against Sean Darcy, in his last game against Fremantle with Sean Darcy as No.1 Ruck Grundy scored 126pts* in Round 23, 2018.

The Salary for Grundy is quite significant, many will opt to pay down at Ruck when building an alternative roster for Sunday which could lead to lower ownership.

GWS Giants

The scores for Josh Kelly (DK $8,000, DS $14,720) have fluctuated wildly this season, he is averaging 84.9pts but has scored 116.0pts or more in 2 of his last 4 games.

Kelly will play mostly an outside midfield role on Sunday, his recent form against Gold Coast is clearly noteworthy having averaged 142.0pts* from his last 3 games.

The Giants are heavy favourites against the Suns, ideal conditions should suit the game for Kelly which opens up the possibility of a high range ceiling game.

Value

Brayden Sier (DK $4,000, DS $6,860) returns to the Collingwood team for the first time this season, he averaged 50.7pts* from just 6 games last season which was injury interrupted.

Sier should be utilised as an inside midfielder for the Magpies on Sunday, he averaged 71.1pts in 2018* as an integral part of the midfield rotation.

Ownership will be high for Sier, he should easily exceed his salary expectations on both platforms.
