Melbourne

Max Gawn has been outstanding in his last 2 games, he has averaged 137.0pts. 

He has a season average of 109.7pts, he has scored 100pts or more in 69.6% of games this season & 120pts or more in 26.1% of games. 

In 2 games against Geelong this year Gawn has averaged 135.5pts, his salary on Friday night is high enough & could see moderate ownership only with many preferring Rhys Stanley at the same position. 

Gawn should be highly considered in a Melbourne stack.

 

Geelong

Mitch Duncan could see higher inside midfield usage on Friday night against Melbourne, Brandan Parfitt has been ruled out which does leave vacant a considerable amount of centre bounces to attend. 

Duncan was elite earlier this year when he was used through the middle of the ground, he averaged 123.1pts from his opening 7 games of 2021. He is a high ceiling type player that can break a slate quite easily. 

If the Cats can control the ball against the Demons, expect Duncan to be involved in that type of ball movement. 

Expect moderate ownership at a minimum.

Value

The salary for Tom Sparrow remains low enough to be a viable option again on Friday night, he has averaged 72.0pts from his last 3 games. 

He has been used as a medical sub at times this year, that has contributed to his low salary & fantasy output.

Expect moderate to strong ownership, he can be used as an inside or outside midfield type player. 

 

*Interestingly Quinton Narkle was only named emergency at lunch on Friday, if he were to be a late inclusion he is excellent value based on his low salary & potential fantasy output.

With the injury to Brandan Parfitt, there will be a shift in midfield & centre bounce usage.

If Narkle is a late inclusion he should be highly considered.
