The ability to remain best 22 is also a strong consideration.  

This list will assist in identifying players to target ahead of Round 6, it may adjust based on team selection & availability.

TOP 5 AFL FANTASY PLAYERS UNDER $300K – (FINAL UPDATE)

1. Sam Hayes

Hayes made his AFL debut last week as starting ruck for Port Adelaide, with Scott Lycett sidelined for a significant period of time Hayes should be secure for quite a while. 

Although he didn’t impact heavily with ball movement recording just 5 disposals he competed quite well at hit out situations. 

Long term Hayes should be a decent option, he’s scoring rate could increase in favourable match ups.

His ability to provide bench cover could be crucial, his ROI should be decent when required to trade out.

2. Ben Hobbs

Hobbs was excellent in his AFL debut last week, he was able to impact positively at stoppages and in contested situations. 

He found his way into centre bounces late and also had an impact.

Zach Merrett and Jake Stringer are on the radar to return, based on his opening game Hobbs should be secure in the team for the short to medium term and should provide a decent ROI. 

3. Finn Callaghan

Callaghan made his AFL debut last week in a difficult match up against Melbourne, he recorded 13 disposals and 2 marks playing mostly on the outside. 

His ability to hit a couple of difficult targets provides optimism he can hold a spot in the Giants team for the short to medium term. 

The scoring rate for Callaghan will need to increase quickly in order to provide a decent ROI, he’s an elite talent and will likely continue to play through the midfield.

4. Robbie McComb

McComb will make his AFL debut this week, the 26 year old was selected at pick 32 in the 2021 AFL Rookie Draft. 

He has a mature body that can adapt quickly to AFL level, he can win his own ball in contested situations. 

His scoring rate should be solid enough to provide a decent ROI, if he can squeeze into the midfield there is the possibility his output could be quite decent. 

5. Malcolm Rosas

Rosas has been excellent in his opening 2 games, after hitting the scoreboard multiple times in Round 3 he followed that up with 7 tackles in Round 4. 

Based on his current break even (BE) there is still the possibility he provides a decent ROI. 

Rosas does play a small forward role, the scoring may be inconsistent. 

*Miller Bergman & Tyler Sonsie would be a considerations if they play this week.

Luke Strnadica may also be a consideration with the Nic Naitanui long term injury, Hugh Dixon is expected to be sidelined for the short term only.
