The Easter Weekend draws to an end today with the traditional Hawthorn v Geelong showdown at the MCG. Check out our Hawks v Cats DFS preview!
The Cats will go into the game underfeated and as comfortable favorites at $1.40 or 71.43% win probability.
The Hawks are yet to win a game in 2017 and a loss here makes the task of making finals very difficult.
Our best value DFS plays (Moneyball prices) are listed below.
Tom Stewart $3,600
Stewart is yet to miss a game in his rookie season and is priced at the absolute basement due to his slow start fantasy scoring wise. The key Geelong backs will have their hands full with Gunston, Rioli, Roughead and Bruest today though and he looks a safe option to hit at least 12 times price.
Kaiden Brand $4,700
Brand has only played one game this season but did enough to suggest he is still well underpriced. On a day when we want to load up on premium mids, happy to save some more cash down back.
Joel Selwood $9,800
Selwood loves the tough stuff and loves the big games. Today ticks both of those boxes and a score of 100+ is close to a certainty on our projections.
Isaac Smith $8,200
Smith needs to step up for the Hawks to turn their season around. He’s copped a few knocks so far this season and is yet to have the breakout game we know he is capable of. The MCG suits and we expect him to go big today.
Zach Smith $6,000
Smith should comfortably beat Big Boy McEvoy in the hit-out battle today and that gives him the slight edge when comparing to the two rucks on our figures. Looks to be underpriced by about $1,000 currently.
Jarryd Roughead $6,100
Cometh the hour, cometh the Rough! The Hawks season is virtually on the line and the captain needs to stand up and grab this game by the throat. There is enough talent forward of center for the Hawks to force the Cats to play one-on-one and Roughead is proven to be one of the best in that situation.
Daniel Menzel $6,900
How good is it seeing a healthy and happy Menzel running around? Super talent and an inspiring person. He’s kicked ten goals in the first three games and will relish the chance to perform on the big stage today.
