In the player markets, you must have a dabble on who will win the Norm Smith Medal. Our tips from each team are simple. Dahlhaus ($17) has been in awesome form and is coming off 32 touches against the Giants last week. When the Swans met the Cats in the first Preliminary Final, Dangerfield and Selwood racked up touches with ease, accumulating 39 each, with 46 contested possession between them. Dahlhaus along with Bontempelli ($8) are the best contested players the Dogs have, and at $17, Dahlhaus gets the nod from us, just ahead of ‘the Bont’.

Based on these stats from what Selwood and Dangerfield did last week, we can’t ignore these boys in the possession markets either. Dahlhaus ($7) can be found in the ultra-competitive group A and will certainly give that a shake but for safety, do not overlook Bontempelli ($4.50) in group B. He had 29 on the Swans earlier this year and will not receive any attention whatsoever this week.

But if you believe the Swans are going to win, then look no further than Lance Franklin ($9). He kicked 5.4 goals against the Dogs in round 15 and has been in blistering form. Last week, Patton and Lobb combined for seven goals against the Dogs and Buddy will be firing on all cylinders on the big stage. You can also get him at $2.30 to kick the most goals, which is basically the biggest sure thing of the day.

Luke Parker has been on the best tacklers this finals series and at $5 he shouldn’t be overlooked.

In the marks market, Dane Rampe ($9) is a nice outsider to consider after his 11 marks last week. The Dogs traditionally give up plenty of the ball to their opposition defenders and at those odds, he’s worth a look.

Isaac Heeney has been scoring AFL Fantasy points with ease in his new role, floating of the halfback and at $3.35, he’s the worthy favourite in group B. He has scored 132 and 116 in his last two games and if he’s running free again, expect another 100+ score.
