Tips by: Calvin

Kicking off the first of the two finals are the mighty Hawks and the firing Bulldogs.

After leading his team to victory last week in the west, we must look at Luke Dahlhaus once again. In Fantasy he is paying $5.50 after his season high 132 last week. He scored 121 on the Hawks when they met in round three and will be tough to stop again as he fills all stats lines. Sam Mitchell racked up another 30 possession game against the Dogs earlier this year and at $3.25, he’s very tough to look past.

With Liam Shiels set to run with Marcus Bontempelli, keep an eye out for Caleb Daniel to be turning heads again this week. He’s little and he wears a helmet but we can’t hold that against him. He had 33 touches last week and 29 on the Hawks in round three. You can find the little man if you search hard enough in group B at $3.25. He’s also in group B in Fantasy as well and is way over the odds paying $9.

If you’re looking for a tackler, then look no further than one of the league’s best, Liam Shiels. He had 11 last week and gone over double figures, six times this year. He’ll be right on Bonts hammer and will wear him all night like a glove.

Josh Gibson ($6) v Matty Boyd ($4.50) is a huge battle in the mark market. Try to say that ten times quickly.

Gibson gets the nod for me as he has been a favourite of mine throughout the year. Three times he has registered 12+ marks and earlier this year, he pulled down 8 against the Dogs.

Tips by: Roy

The winner of the final game on Saturday night meets Geelong for their chance of premiership glory.

Dan Hannebery has been on fire over the last six weeks, averaging 35 disposals. At $3, he’s extremely hard to overlook in a very capable Sydney midfield.

After a sure thing? Then lock in Jake Lloyd ($2.75) in group B to find plenty of the pill. He is a beast across half back and is the king of finding uncontested ball. He has racked up 26, 31, 24 and 35 over the last month.  In AFL Fantasy you can also find Lloydy in group B. Pushed back with the peasants, he’s not getting the respect he deserves. After averaging 107 in his last five, he’s my bet of the round paying $7.

Three of Lance Franklin’s highest marking games of the year have come in the last four games. He has had 8 and 11 in his last two and at $6, I think he is certainly worth a look.

Finally, an oldie but a goodie. Scott Thompson in the tackle market is paying a very juicy $5. He’s had hauls of 8 and 9 in his last two and even nailed 10 on the Swans in round four.
