REMINDER: Players on their bye can be used as loopholes and lock out before the start of the LAST game of the round. Eg. Gawn (MELB) will be able to used a loophole right up until the start of the Hawks Dons game on Sunday at 3:20.
MACRAE v Cats
- L3 v Cats: 94, 116, 124 (111 av.)
- L3 @ GMHBA: 124, 84, 77 (95 av.)
With Bont likely to be tagged (discussed below), Macrae will be freed up to do his thing. Doesn’t have the greatest record at GMHBA, but still solid for 120.
MILLER v Port
- L3 v Port: 111, 127, 43 (94 av.)
- L3 @ MS: 115, 146, 132 (131 av.)
Even with Serong on his ass for parts of the game, Miller still managed 30 touches, a goal and 8 clearances last week – just gives it everything and in great physical condition. A 130 this week back up at Metricon.
KELLY v Blues
- L3 v Blues: 131, 205, 98 (145 av.)
- L3 @ GS: 102, 111, 98 (104 av.)
After a slow start, Kelly has been repaying the faith big time with another BOG performance last week; 39 touches, 17 contested and 2 goals. Enormous ceiling v Blues, expect another 140.
MITCHELL v Dons
- L3 v Dons: 122, 127, 153 (134 av.)
- L3 @ UTAS: 76, 90, 159 (108 av.)
An impressive 34 touches and 16 contested off only 16 CBAs behind 3 other MIDs. Solid scoring history against both the Dons and in Tassie, so pencil him in for 125.
MERRETT v Hawks
- L3 v Hawks: 145, 138, 72 (118 av.)
- L3 @ UTAS: N/A
Fresh off the bye, Dons season at a crossroads and plays the Hawks well. Lock him in for 125+.
PARISH v Hawks
- L3 v Hawks: 91, 110, 55 (85 av.)
- L3 @ UTAS: N/A
Scoring history not relevant for Parish as he’s only stepped up as an elite MID recently. In dynamic form and averaging 30+ touches a week, just goes 130 this week.
BONTEMPELLI v Cats
- L3 v Cats: 122, 146, 96 (121 av.)
- L3 @ GMHBA: 96, 81, 79 (85 av.)
While teams have tagged Libba to great effect recently, surely the Cats will have the prudence to neutralize. Can’t afford him clearing the ball and taking shots at will. Thinking O’Connor goes to him for a sub-ton.
LYONS v Roos
- L3 v Roos: 126, 165, 78 (123 av.)
- L3 @ BA: N/A
His CBAs took a little hit with Neale returning his customary team CB load, but against the Roos he’ll be safe for 120 with a chance to go large. Neale also worth considering if you have him.
If you’ve got Kelly, definitely give him a look this week. I don’t, so for me it’ll be Neale or Miller into Zerrett.
