Which players need to be considered when the SUNS return to action in Gather Round?

Sam Flanders (MID/FWD, $844k)

Comfortably the most owned player in the SUNS squad, the popular pre-season pick has done well for his owners, averaging 99.3 across the first three games and currently placed as the third-highest averaging forward.

With a price tag still only sitting at $844k - a rise of $35k from his start price - Flanders still presents plenty of opportunity for those not in the 41.3% of coaches who already have him in their sides. Better yet, he’s scored 110 in each of his last two meetings against Gather Round opponents, GWS.

Touk Miller (MID, $900k)

One of two SUNS to record three consecutive 100+ scores to open the season. Fantasy coaches know what they’re going to get out of the uber consistent SUNS captain who has racked up the points on the back of 58 touches and 19 tackles in the past two weeks.

His price tag has just tipped over the $900k mark, but with a breakeven under 100, there’s cash to be made, and consistent points in midfield to bank.

Matt Rowell (MID, $894k)

The other SUN to record three consecutive 100+ scores. Like his captain, Rowell’s owners have benefited from his trademark contested work as he averages 7.7 tackles per game to date this season.

Despite the notoriety, his ownerships is edging towards POD territory with less than 8% of coaches finding a spot for the 22-year-old in their midfields.

Wil Powell (DEF, $783k)

One of AFL.com’s Michael Whiting’s all-time favourite players and for good reason. The 24-year-old has been in barnstorming form across half-back to open his season, with a 93.3 average coming from a bit of everything - getting his hands on the ball, intercepting in defence and laying tackles.

Powell’s thriving in the role handed to him by Damien Hardwick, but you’ll have to be quick with his price already bumped up $42k from its starting value.

Ned Moyle (RUCK, $398k)

Ownership of the big ruckman soared after he replaced the injured Jarrod Witts in the side for Round 3. Up against Tim English, Moyle tapped his way to a career-high 81 points.

If he gets further opportunities at AFL level, there’s cash to be made.

Brayden Fiorini (MID, $718k)

If PODs are your bread and butter, this might just be your stroke of genius. Minutes close to the action and earning uncontested marks on the back of his work rate brought about scores of 98 and 100 in the first two games - well above the $718k it would set coaches back.

Fiorini currently sits in just 0.72% of teams.
