Brisbane

Daniel Rich BRI (DK $6,200, DS $13,020) has been on fire in recent games, he has averaged 89.4pts from his last 5 games which includes an average of 96.0pts from his last 3 games. 

The Lions will look to use Rich at a high rate on Saturday night with his penetrating kick, his ability to be part of opposition turnovers & hit the scoreboard will provide additional opportunities. 

Rich scored just 44pts against the Cats earlier this season, ownership may be depressed by that & with the amount of premium scoring options in the midfield.

Geelong

Rhys Stanley GEE (DK $6,300, DS $11,870) will have a clearly defined role as solo ruck for the Cats on Saturday night, he has averaged 67.9pts from 9 games this season. 

Late in the game last week against Collingwood Stanley was assessed with a knee concern but returned to finish the game scoring 81pts.

With Stefan Martin & Oscar McInerney set to share ruck duties on Saturday night Stanley looks best placed to hit a ceiling type game.

The points floor appears to be safer for Stanley along with his upside potential, ownership will likely be strong.

Value

Joel Selwood GEE (DK $5,900, DS $11,610) will likely see a heavy usage at centre bounces against Brisbane, he was used at 79.2% of team CBA’s last week against Collingwood (83pts). 

Selwood has a very strong contested game which will be suited against the Lions, he won’t be holding back on Saturday night.

Ownership for Selwood is likely to be strong, his salary on both platforms represents good value with the potential for a ceiling type game in play.
