West Coast

Andrew Gaff WC (DK $7,400, DS $15,730) averaged 87.0pts in the 2020 H&A season, he scored 80pts or more in 13 of 18 games including a season high 126pts against Collingwood in Round 8. 

In a slate that has multiple premium midfield options Gaff is certainly worth considering, with several key mids returning for West Coast he is likely to be moved a touch more onto a wing which should suit his fantasy game quite nicely. 

If the Eagles can get a hold of Collingwood at Optus Stadium then expect Gaff to have played a fairly important role, a ceiling game is in play on Saturday. 

Collingwood

Adam Treloar COLL (DK $7,300, DS $15,110) completed only 8 games in the 2020 H&A season averaging 87.8pts, he scored 80pts or more in 5 of 8 games & a season low 68pts against West Coast in Round 8. 

Treloar has a very good ceiling which is certainly worth tapping into, the Magpies are a high disposal team averaging 323.6 Disposals in the 2020 H&A season (Rank 1).

If Collingwood can control the ball for long periods against West Coast on Saturday then it is likely Treloar can grab a fair share of Disposals, he is worth considering.

Value

Luke Shuey WC (DK $6,400, DS $11,950) has had his injury struggles this season averaging 68.8pts from 12 games in the H&A season, he enters the Eagles final having missed the last 3 games with an extra week for the pre-final bye. 

Due to the low scoring output Shuey is well under priced compared to his career fantasy output capability, he averaged 109.0pts* from 2 finals last year & won the Norm Smith Medal in the 2018 Grand Final against Collingwood scoring 133pts*. 

Shuey has genuine upside, he’s tough to ignore based on price.
