After a quiet Round 8 Travis Boak (DK $7,700, DS $14,640) rebounded well scoring 94pts against Melbourne in Round 9, he recorded 25 Disposals, 4 Marks, 2 Tackles along with kicking 1 Goal.
The midfield usage for Boak has been solid this season, while Power coach Ken Hinkley continues to find a balance & share the load through his midfield options Boak should be used at a moderate-high rate against the Bulldogs.
The Bulldogs midfield players will be a preferred option for many on Monday night, having Boak run through your line-ups should be considered especially in a Port Adelaide win list build.
Jack Macrae (DK $8,000, DS $16,480) has hit back to back ceiling games for the Bulldogs averaging 108.0pts, he has averaged 94.4pts from his last 5 games averaging 29.0 Disposals over the same period.
Macrae has averaged 123.5pts* from his last 2 games against Port Adelaide, he recorded 36 Disposals in each game.
It will be interesting to see how heavy ownership is for Macrae on Monday night, given his recent form it will likely be moderate-high.

Boyd Woodcock (DK $3,100, DS $5,000) makes his AFL debut for the Power on Monday night against the Bulldogs, he plays a small forward type role with the ability to hit the scoreboard.
The payoff for selecting Woodcock as a forward in your roster will allow for an extra spend in your midfield, that could be a significant decision with many potential ceiling players on offer which could offset a low ceiling for Woodcock.
The Power are currently -15.5 favorite against the Bulldogs, it won’t take much for Woodcock to exceed salary if he can hit the scoreboard a couple of times.
