Fantasy Stocktake: Brandon Matera

AFL 2017 Round 04 - Carlton v Gold Coast

Hands up who predicted Brandon Matera (FWD, $455,000) would be the AFL's highest averaging forward after four rounds this year?

Yes, the sample size is just two games, but the Gold Coast goalsneak has certainly put in a Fantasy fortnight to remember, torching the Hawks and the Blues for a collective 245 points. 

The question is whether Matera can keep it going against the Crows this week. The stats say you can expect a dip, but not enough of one to rule him out. 

Matera averages a respectable 73 at Metricon Stadium, and 68.3 against the Crows. His projected score is 78 this week, which in itself would deliver a healthy $32,000 price rise straight up.

His best season was 2015 where he averaged 70.7 over 19 games – that year he started slowly before coming home with a bang to deliver four scores over 85 in the final six rounds. 

The best strategy might be to bring him in this week, and trade him out at the completion of round eight when the SUNS have their bye after their trip to Shanghai to play the Power.
