After a disappointing Round 16 in which Andrew Gaff WC (DK $8,500, DS $15,110) scored just 44pts he bounced back in Round 17 with a score of 110pts, with the Kangaroos entering their final H&A game this season the pressure may not be high which should allow Gaff to get to work.
The Kangaroos have a -52.8 Disposal Differential average from their last 4 games (Rank 17), Gaff should thrive if that trend continues on Thursday night.
Gaff certainly does have a ceiling type game that can break open a slate, he is a must consideration.
After averaging 99.8pts between Rounds 9-14 Luke McDonald NM (DK $7,300, DS $14,790) has averaged 63.0pts from his last 2 games.
The recent form for McDonald should reduce ownership somewhat, however the Kangaroos do have a -11.8 Inside 50 Differential average from their last 6 games (Rank 18) which should result in plenty of opportunities even for the Eagles who do not have strong Inside 50 Differential numbers this season.
McDonald is a must consider with the Eagles -30.5 favourites & a potential decline in ownership.

Luke Foley WC (DK $2,800, DS $5,000) will make his AFL debut in Round 18, he was selected at pick 31 in the 2018 AFL Draft.
Foley plays as an intercept marking half-back/utility type, with Jeremy McGovern out due to injury having Foley settle into a half-back role should put him in a position to exceed value on Thursday night.
Foley will be a popular selection, using his salary savings will allow for increased spend in the midfield.
