Each week I’ll be looking at players who are sitting in the free agency pool that can be used in your matchup that can give you a little extra scoring power. When using these players, I use Ultimate Footy’s ownership of 65% or less to give everyone a go for those that play in bigger leagues.
We are now at the pointy end of the season with some leagues starting finals or just about to commence their finals campaigns. Good luck to all and bring home that title!
Mitch Brown is playing as the sole big man in the Bombers forward line since Bellchambers went down and McKernan went into the ruck.
Brown is in just 50% of teams and he and the Bombers are up against the Gold Coast Suns this week who have been leaking points to the forwards. We saw last week Casboult and McKay score well, so Brown should be no exception.
Tim Membrey is in just 57% of teams and the Saints are playing Melbourne who have been horrible this year.
Membrey has a good record against Melbourne and averages 86 Supercoach and 84 AFL Fantasy points over his career against the Dees. In his last 2 games he has scored a 108 and 110 in Supercoach and 91 and 89 AFL Fantasy points. I’d be bringing Membrey in as a good F5 stream or sit them on the bench so your opponent cant use them against you.
I mentioned on the podcast that I’d look at Darcy Gardiner as a possible waiver pickup. Now that Harris Andrews is suspended I’d be grabbing him, because as we know key defenders score well against Hawthorn. He is easily available at 8% ownership.
If you need another defender, Josh Walker has come in for Andrews and Walker is at 10% ownership.
