CGU Fantasy Football - Round 8



Welcome back to Round 8 of CGU Fantasy Football!

CGU Fantasy ambassador Steele Sidebottom is back from his thumb injury this round for Collingwood’s clash against Gold Coast Suns at Metricon Stadium.

We wish Steele luck for his first game back.

Go Pies!
 
GET HIM BACK!

This week, you must get Jordan Lewis (MID, $695,000) back into your team.

Over his first five games, Lewis has averaged 135 before being suspended two weeks ago. Many coaches, including yours truly, off loaded Lewis but I now find myself scraping the piggy bank trying the find the $695,000 needed to get him back.

This week, he plays the Swans and should be your walk-up captain against them. In his last four games against Sydney he scored 139, 110, 90 and 120 and will be awesome again.

Things get even better next week when he meets the struggling Gold Coast Suns at Aurora Stadium, a ground he has averaged 119 at in his last five games… So you better find the cash needed and get him back.

MASSIVE PIES

CGU ambassador Steele Sidebottom (MID, $602,000) will be itching to play this week because the points will be flowing at Metricon Stadium and Scott Pendlebury (MID, $600,000) and Dane Swan (FWD/MID, $546,000) will be having more than their fair share.

Last week, five West Coast Eagle players scored over 115 against the Suns which included Priddis (155), Yeo (150) and Masten (144).

Pendlebury scored 111 last year against the Suns and has averaged 111 in his last three games despite a low of 77 last week. Swan managed 117 on the Suns last year and averages 110 against them in his last three. You can’t go wrong with these stars so look out for them to have big numbers once again.

CALVIN’S CAPTAINS

BEST PICKJordan Lewis (MID, $695,000)

As I’ve previous mentioned, Jordan Lewis will be massive this week as he tries to repay his team mates and Fantasy coaches for getting suspended two weeks ago. I’m expecting something around the 130+mark this week.

NEXT BESTDyson Heppell (MID, $582,000)

Heppell scored 125 last week and loves playing against the Lions who he had 127 against last year. Lock him in for another top game this week.

THE ROUGHIEMatt Priddis (MID, $566,000)

Don’t expect him to score the 155 he managed last year but he is going for his fifth straight 100+ score against the Saints this week. He posted 101 and 102 against them last year and will be great again.
 
MY TRADES

At this stage, I will be trading the injured Christian Salem (FWD/DEF, $305,000) and picking up Port’s rookie Karl Amon (MID, $133,000) who scored 52 last week after starting as the sub. This move allows me to put some cash on top of Lachie Whitfield (MID, $466,000) so I can once again own the mighty Jordan Lewis.

Good luck!
