Adelaide vs Richmond (bookmakers’ total 153.5, line Adelaide -24.5)
Where to Attack
Looking at the line for the game (Crows -24.5), it’s pretty obvious where you want to attack when looking at the points against this season; the Crows have given up far less fantasy points compared to the Tigers this season. Although the Tigers have tightened the screws on the points they’ve given up over the last five games, the Crows should score well if they can get on top in this match.
You can see in the graphic below that the Tigers have given up the fourth most points to opposition defenders this season, however, over the past five games they’ve actually given up the least of any team.
Moving onto the centres and we can see that this time it’s the Crows who have given up the most points to opposition midfielders over the past five games. Their 93 per player average during this period ranks as the third most in the league.
The forwards are the position with the most difference between the two sides here. The Tigers have given up the third most to forwards this season, while the Crows have given up the fourth least.
Finally, we look at the ruck battle, which again shows that the Tigers give up the most points of the two to their oppositions number one ruck. They’ve given up the second most points to rucks of all team over the past five games.
Patrick Naish ($3,500 MB, $7,900 DS)
Probably the most obvious selection on Thursday night is Richmond’s Patrick Naish. He impressed on debut last week and was one of the only shining lights in their huge loss to the Cats. He scored 79 and is still basement price at Moneyball. Lock and load.
Mabior Chol ($3,900 MB, $5,000 DS)
Ivan Soldo has been confired a late out for Thursday night, which opens the door for Mabior Chol to play the second game of his AFL career. He debuted in the final round of 2016 and was really quiet with just two possesions and one behind. He's expected to take care of the ruck duties against the Crows, which will give him a lot more opportunity to produce a decent fantasy score.
MID PRICED PLAYS
Liam Baker ($6,200 MB, $10,340)
There aren’t too many mid-priced guys that catch our eye on Thursday night, although Liam Baker looks like one of the better ones. He’s coming off one of his quieter games (63 vs Geelong), which could lower his ownership, and has shown the ability to score in the 80-90 range consistently.
Brad Crouch ($10,100 MB, $15,380 DS)
Brad Couch is the most expensive player in this match and for good reason. He’s having a terrific season and a really consistent one in terms of fantasy. His lowest score all year is 93 and he’s cracked the ton in nine of his 12 matches. If you’re looking for a safe selection that guarantees you a big score, then Brad Crouch is your man.
