Christian Petracca MEL (DK $8,200, DS $15,440) is putting together a consistent season having moved into a predominantly midfield role, he is averaging 23.9 Disposals, 3.6 Marks, 4.1 Tackles & 0.8 Goals.
Petracca has moved forward within games to provide a different attacking option for the Demons, he has the ability to hit the scoreboard which will keep the scores ticking over.
With wet conditions impacting the West Coast/Carlton game ownership will likely be heavier in the Melbourne/Nth Melbourne game, ensure that Petracca is part of your roster build.
Clayton Oliver MEL (DK $8,900, DS $16,980) is in the middle of an outstanding season, he has averaged 26.1 Disposals, 3.8 Marks & 5.7 Tackles from 9 games (Ave: 96.3).
Oliver has averaged 113.8pts from his last 4 games, he has averaged 28.5 Disposals over the same period.
The midfield usage for Oliver will likely be high again against the Kangaroos, the highest priced midfielder on Sunday should be highly considered.

Trent Rivers MEL (DK $3,000, DS $6,430) made his AFL debut earlier this season, he has averaged 10.7 Disposals, 2.0 Marks & 2.0 Tackles from 3 games (Ave: 40.0).
Rivers will likely play a half-back type role on Sunday similar to his earlier games this season, having worked on his game outside of the AFL team he returns with that experience under his belt.
There are quite a few value options for Sunday, Rivers is worth considering given his likely role against the Kangaroos.
