Western Bulldogs

Jack Macrae has put together another fine fantasy season, he averaged 115.9pts in the H&A season. 

He has been used at 77.9% of centre bounces this season, expect that usage to remain high on Sunday.

Macrae has scored 100pts or more in 81.8% of games this season, he has scored 120pts or more in 27.3% of games. 

Expect strong ownership, he can be a consideration in either a Bulldogs or Essendon roster construction. 

 

Essendon

Zach Merrett has been outstanding again this season from a fantasy perspective, he has a season average of 110.5pts. 

He has scored 100pts or more in 77.3% of games, he has scored 120pts or more in 31.8% of games. 

The midfield & centre bounce usage should be high for Merrett against the Bulldogs. 

Ownership may only be moderate with quite a few midfield type options available on Sunday.

Value

The match-up for Sam Draper against Tim English is quite favourable on Sunday, it’s even better if Lewis Young plays the majority of game as the Bulldogs No.1 ruck. 

The Salary for Draper is extremely viable, expect heavy ownership. 

He scored 78pts in Round 21 against the Bulldogs, he should be in a decent position to exceed value on Sunday.
