It was a high-scoring AFL Fantasy match for the SUNS on the weekend, with seven of the 22 players recording 100+ scores.
SUNS Media take a look at some of the best options for you in Round 5.
Jack Bowes (DEF - $724k)
It’s been a hot start to the year for Bowes who has a highest score of 135 and lowest score of 92 through four weeks. Against the Blues he had a big score of 124, thanks to his game-high 34 disposals (31 kicks, three handballs), nine marks and one tackle.
Averaging 113 for the season, Bowes is ranked the sixth best Fantasy scorer and number one defender after the first four rounds. He has a hugely Fantasy-friendly role in the side, designated to take the club’s kick-ins and playing as a rebounding, intercepting defender. Bowes has established himself as a top six defender and is an excellent option to add to your side. With just 4% ownership and a breakeven of 75, he should be a high-priority trade target.
Touk Miller (MID - $763k)
Miller was a standout last week and finished the round as the highest Fantasy scoring player in the league with his whopping 140 score. That was made up of his 28 disposals (14 kicks, 14 handballs), five marks, 13 tackles and even a hit out in the ruck.
Averaging 106.5 for the season, Miller is currently the 16th best scorer in AFL Fantasy. Miller has a good matchup against the Bulldogs this week, a team he averages 89 against in his career. His record is even better at Marvel Stadium, with the SUNS vice-captain averaging 95.5 at the venue. With a breakeven of 85, Miller should continue to rise in price this week and is a unique midfield option with just 1% ownership.
Hugh Greenwood (MID - $710k)
It was a typical Hugh Greenwood display last weekend with the SUNS midfielder dominating through his tackling and high possession numbers. His Fantasy score of 124 consisted of 27 disposals (18 kicks, nine handballs), 10 tackles, two hit outs and a goal for good measure.
Greenwood is leading the league in tackling and is a reliable Fantasy scorer through that source. After a down week in Round 1, he’s bounced back with scores of 89, 126 and 124 in recent weeks to average 113 from the last three matches. With a breakeven of 72, Greenwood is likely to rise in price again this week against the Bulldogs who he historically scores well against. If Greenwood can continue his hot streak of form he will be a tempting prospect in the midfield of your AFL Fantasy team.
