Hawthorne (+117) @ Collingwood (-143)
Notable Players OUT:
Josh Daicos (COL) – Starting midfielder out with an ankle injury
Steele Sidebottom – (COL) Top midfielder suspended.
Jordan De Goey (COL) – Covid testing incomplete
Top Payups: Scott Pendlebury (COL 7.5K) M – 26 touches per game(5th in the AFL)
Adam Trealor (COL 7.8K) M – With Sidebottom out he should rack up disposals.
Brodie Grundy (HAW 9.3K) R – Most expensive player on the slate and if he goes for 120+ he would essentially break the slate. I actually think I’ll be personally playing the fade as this matchup isn’t the greatest for him and I don’t want to run a bunch of punts.
Mid Priced Plays
Tom Mitchell (HAW 6.7K) M – Legendary midfielder for Hawthorn with a big price dip after a relatively low scoring game. This price is way too cheap and he will be a lock for me in my main team. One of the few Hawthorn players I’ll have exposure to.
Tom Phillips ( COL 5.2K) M – Gets the matchup boost and usage upgrade with Sidebotoom and Daicos out.
Jadyn Stephenson (COL 5.5K) F – 81 fps last games. Should get plenty of opportunites to rack up disposals and goals.
Jordan Roughead (COL 3K) D – Defenders against Hawthorne has been money all season, lock and load.
Will Day (HAW 2.5K) D – If you want to go contrarian and take a Hawthorn defender, Day is making his debut after averaging 17 disposals per game in the minor leagues. Tough matchup, but big time upside.
CORE: Tom Mitchell, Sott Pendlebury, Tom Phillips, Jordan Roughead
