After going down to the Crows at Adelaide Oval on Sunday, a number of SUNS players still managed to impress from an AFL Fantasy perspective. The team at SUNS Media have taken a look at Gold Coast’s top performers from the game.
Brayden Fiorini (MID - $719,000)
Fiorini’s score of 126 Fantasy points was enough to earn him a place amongst the competition’s top 10 for the round.
The score was a season-high for the midfielder, who once again racked up 30 touches (17 kicks, 13 handballs) and took five marks.
Adding to his tally were seven marks and a goal – his first for the season.
Fiorini continues to fly under the radar, with less than 1% ownership.
Fantasy coaches may need to seriously consider the 21-year-old who now has a season average of 109.4, while his last three games have an average of 116.7.
Jarrod Witts (RUC - $709,000)
Another dominant performance from the ruckman, who finished the game with 123 points.
He won the ruck battle against Adelaide’s Reilly O’Brien, winning 46 hit-outs while he also had 17 touches.
Witts has again put his name in the conversation for the top Fantasy ruckmen in the competition, with his average of 106 more than Melbourne’s Max Gawn and just below that of Collingwood’s Brodie Grundy.
The SUNS’ skipper is priced lower than both of those two ruckmen and has provided excellent value so far.
Touk Miller (MID - $684,000)
Miller backed up his monster score last week with a solid 111-point game against the Crows.
The midfielder had 28 disposals (10 kicks, 18 handballs) and five marks but it was his nine tackles which boosted his score.
He is averaging 114.7 over his last three games and is one player that Fantasy coaches could keep an eye on as a potential point of difference.
Pearce Hanley (DEF - $453,000)
Hanley was back to his creative best on the weekend during his 150th AFL game.
The half-back finished with 111 Fantasy points thanks in large part to his 22 kicks and seven handballs.
His performance earned a price rise of $31,000 for the round, while his ownerships currently sits at 1%.
Hanley has shown in the past that he’s capable of big scores and if he can string a few games together similar to the one against the Crows, he could provide some value for Fantasy coaches.
