The DT Talk boys give us a full run down of their best player props for Round 17. Calvin, Warnie and Roy have dissected the match-ups to give us their value picks of the week.

Round 17 Matches
DT Talk Player Prop Bets
Sydney v Hawthorn
(Thur 19:20)

Tips By: Roy
Last time these teams met was in round nine and on that day, Tom Mitchell tagged Sam Mitchell to just 15 touches. This will happen again my friends so avoid Sam in all markets. Instead, hit up Dan Hannebery for most handballs paying $3. He won this category in round nine with 18 and also had 18 last week. Jordan Lewis ($8) is good value to lead all Fantasy points in this game as he attempts to score this seventh straight 100+ in as many weeks.
Fremantle v Geelong
(Fri 20:10)

Tips By: Calvin
Michael Barlow is set to tag Patrick Dangerfield tonight and I’m not at all concerned. Dangerfield ($2.70) is at tempting odds to find the most the ball in group A and $1.95 to have the most AFL Fantasy points. He had 147 on the Dockers last year and will potentially have more tonight. Last week against Fremantle, five Melbourne players had 30+ touches, so surely Joel Selwood ($2.10) can get the job done. Mitch Duncan ($4) is also value in this field and will run as my ‘roughie of the night’.
Richmond v Essendon
(Sat 13:40)

Tips By: Warnie
Expect Dusty Martin to be a monster this afternoon. He scored 123 Fantasy points against the Bombers in round 10 and goes for his fourth straight 120+ at the MCG today. You can get him at $4 to take out the group and even a solid $2.75 for most touches. Matt Dea ($6) is good value to take the most marks and can be huge on his day, like in round 9 when he pulled down 15.
Nth Melbourne v Port Adelaide
(Sat 16:35)

Tips By: Roy
Sam Gray ($5.50) has been a favourite of mine all year without much return. He’s in group B for most touches, surely this is the week. Robbie Gray loves putting his fist to the ball and even had 17 handballs last week. At $3.50, he’s certainly one of the best bets over this entire weekend.
Western Bulldogs v Gold Coast
(Sat 19:25)

Tips By: Warnie
Lachie Hunter ($2.50) has been unreal all year and this week he’s up against a depleted Sun’s line-up. Expect him to rack up 35+. Aaron Hall will get more chances tonight and could clock up game high Fantasy numbers. At $4.50, he’s certainly worth a shot with so many Gold Coast stars missing. Matthew Boyd will be floating across half-back doing what he pleases tonight. He’ll be taking uncontested marks and will have a field day paying $4.
Adelaide v Collingwood
(Sat 19:40)

Tips By: Calvin
In game 300, I’ll be backing in Scott Thompson to have the most handballs ($7.50). He has been quiet in recent weeks but will step-up in this milestone game. Taylor Adams ($6.50) presents as great value to score the most Fantasy points if he plays his new half back role again. He’ll clock up big uncontested numbers back there and is super value.
