The Gold Coast SUNS have had several players put their hands up for AFL Fantasy selection in recent weeks.
There were some impressive performances in Round 6 and SUNS Media have analysed some of the best trade targets below.
Hugh Greenwood (MID/FWD – 657,000)
It’s been back-to-back weeks of Fantasy dominance from Greenwood, with a score of 103 adding to his 109 from Round 5. The midfielder was involved in everything against Melbourne on the weekend, accumulating 18 disposals, four marks and a whopping 12 tackles.
His tackling is what makes Greenwood a reliable Fantasy option, with the 28-year-old leading the competition with 50 tackles at an average of 8.3 per game. That equates to 33 Fantasy points per game just from his tackling. At an affordable price point and with a breakeven of just 33, Greenwood is a great option to bring into your Fantasy Classic team in the forward line. He’s owned by just 17% of teams and is currently the 7thbest forward in the game.
Izak Rankine (FWD - $204,000)
Rankine burst onto the scene in Round 6 with a sparkling debut, but he also had a great AFL Fantasy performance. The former number three draft pick had a score of 65 in his first match, consisting of 12 disposals, one mark and three goals.
His score saw Rankine increase by $34k in his first week, but with a breakeven of -12 he still has plenty more cash to make. With a current ownership of 22%, Rankine will be one of the most targeted players to trade in this week as a forward-line downgrade option.
Jack Bowes (MID/DEF - $596,000)
After gaining DPP (dual position player) status before Round 6, Bowes has suddenly become a unique AFL Fantasy selection. His shift to half-back this year has seen him add defender status to his Fantasy profile, while still maintaining a decent Fantasy output.
Bowes had a score of 70 on the weekend from 19 disposals, six marks and a tackle and he presents value as a potential premium defender under $600k. Averaging a tick under 70, the fourth-year SUN has 0% ownership and would be an extreme point of difference in the backline. If he can lift that average to the high-70’s by season’s end Bowes could find himself in the conversation as a top 6 defender so is one to watch in the coming weeks.
