Western Bulldogs

Jack Macrae has been exceptional for the Bulldogs through the midfield again this season, his inside usage has been consistent & strong all year.

He can win the ball at a high rate on the outside as well & is a critical element to the ball movement of the Bulldogs, he is averaging 34.0 Disposals this season (AFL Rank 2). 

The salary for Macrae is quite appealing on Friday night, he will be a popular option with his ceiling potential. 

Expect very strong ownership. 

Western Bulldogs

Marcus Bontempelli has been superb for the Bulldogs all season, his ability to win contested ball as an inside mid & hit the scoreboard is at an elite level. 

He has scored 100pts or more in 76.2% of games this season, he has scored 120pts or more in 38.1% of games. 

In a Bulldogs stack, Bontempelli should be highly considered.

Value

Aaron Naughton averaged 82.5pts from his opening 12 games of the season, post bye he has averaged just 46.3pts. 

Port Adelaide do have a poor record against highly ranked teams this season, if the Bulldogs can put score board pressure on the Power then Naughton could be a decent play. He will be a focus for forward inside 50 entries. 

With value thin on Friday night Naughton could be one player to exceed value in a Bulldogs win.
