CGU Fantasy Football - Round 4
YOUR CHANCE TO WIN
Welcome back to round 4 of CGU’s Fantasy Football blog!
Although CGUs Fantasy Football ambassador Steele Sidebottom won’t be playing, the ANZAC Day clash between Collingwood and Essendon is always one of the games of the year.
Essendon’s leading duo, Jobe Watson (MID, $587,000) and Dyson Heppell (MID, $612,000) have always dominated this game. Over the last three years Watson has posted scores of 92, 109 and 104 in ANZAC Day games and Heppell has averaged 113. Heppell has averaged 112 this year and is going to be very hard to stop this week.
Scott Pendlebury (MID, $592,000) is another gun who always thrives in these occasions but is destined to cop a tag from Jake Melksham. Despite the tag, Pendlebury has still averaged 108 on the day over the last three years and is just too classy.
Last weekend has delivered us with some ‘forced trades’ that need to be addressed heading into round four.
Ollies Wines (MID, $550,000) – out for up to six weeks with a dislocated wrist
Ollie Wines was flying this year and sadly he now must be traded out of your team. Dayne Beams (MID, $546,000) is an easy replacement for him after he bounced back to his best with 126pts last week.
Jimmy Bartel (MID, $511,000) – out for up to six weeks with a left knee
Bartel is having such an unlucky run with injuries this year and also must be traded out of your team. Marcus Bontempelli (FWD/MID, $447,000) is his best replacement and will pocket you an extra $34,000 to spend elsewhere.
Mitch Wallis (MID, $352,000) – out for 1-3 weeks with a bruised back
Wallis copped a knee in the back and looked very very sore. He is very doubtful for round four. If you were looking to trade him, Sydney’s young gun Isaac Heeney (MID, $315,000) would be your best option. He is still rising in price and has averaged 76 so far this year.
BEST PICK: Jordan Lewis
How can he not be? Lewis has averaged 142 this year and scored 152 last week against the Bulldogs. Last year against the Power he scored 77 and 138, however the 77 was due to an injury that resulted in Lewis leaving the ground in the third quarter. With Rockliff and Ablett on the sidelines, we have been handed a gift that just keeps on giving.
GO ON, BE DIFFERENT: Dane Swan
With every man and his dog locking in Lewis, why not be different and pick Steele’s mate Swanny. He scored 144 last week and looked like the ‘Swanny of old’. He scored 57 and 122 last year against the Bombers and loves the ANZAC Day occasion that has seen him post scores of 122, 120 and 171… twice winning the medal.
ROUGHIE: Steven Coniglio
The Gold Coast Suns are struggling and Steven Coniglio will cash in on this. He has scored 127 and 125 over the last two weeks and is a Fantasy jet.
Catch you next week.
