A dominant win has resulted in some dominant AFL Fantasy scores from the SUNS in Round 3 against Adelaide.
SUNS Media have analysed some of the best performers heading into Round 4.
Matthew Rowell (MID - $446,000)
The number one draft pick has done it again. After a breakout game last week with 108 Fantasy points, Matt Rowell has backed it up with another Fantasy ton, this time scoring 104. The midfielder did it all against the Crows, collecting 20 disposals, 10 tackles and booting two goals to reach triple figures for the second week straight.
His tremendous form has seen Rowell skyrocket in price, going up $89k this week to sit at $446k. His incredibly low breakeven of -48 will see him increase even further next week, projected to go up another $106k after Round 4. He is the undeniable best cash cow in AFL Fantasy Classic and is currently the 11th highest-averaging midfielder in the competition. Owned by 68% of coaches in both Classic and Draft, Rowell is a must-have and if you are one of the 32% of coaches who don’t own him in either format, do what you can to change that this week.
Touk Miller (MID - $700,000)
Miller was a beast in the midfield against the Crows, accumulating 26 disposals, six marks, three tackles and a goal to notch 102 Fantasy points. It’s Miller’s first ton for the season after scores of 84 and 70 in Rounds 1 and 2.
At $700k, Miller is an expensive prospect in Fantasy Classic but could be more relevant in Draft formats. He’s owned in just 57.6% of leagues and would be a worthy pickup as a free agent this week.
Lachie Weller (DEF - $647,000)
We called it last week, and it was another dominant AFL Fantasy game from Lachie Weller on the weekend. The now full-time midfielder racked up his highest score of the season so far, with his 95 points coming from 21 disposals (12 kicks, nine handballs), five marks, five tackles and a goal.
Weller is the real deal as a top-six defensive option in AFL Fantasy this season. His role change is more permanent this season and it’s been reflective in his scoring, with the 24-year-old averaging 82 points, or 102 points without shortened quarters. With just 3% ownership in Fantasy Classic, Weller is a unique point of difference who has shown he has the capacity to rack up big numbers in the midfield. In Draft formats, he is still unowned in 13% of leagues so scoop him up and place him on the field if he’s still available in yours.
