Baker has definitely stepped up his scoring lately, and I picked him up in another comp this week, not sure if it is a permanent role change, but hoping it continues for a while. Heeney will have good weeks to balance those a bit quieter, but will still average well. I prefer Baker's upcoming games of the two, and would lean that way, but the smarter option is probably Heeney on historical data.

Bench Heeney, Rozee, Berg, Brodie?? The data says Heeney. His last three games v the Saints have been woeful but he’s coming off a 124 last week. My gut says Rozee but he tonned last week and should score better without Butters. Brodie the other roll of dice POD with Fyfe back

Go with your gut (my usual advice). I also think there's a fair chance Rozee is the lowest scoring of these four this round, but really it could be any of the 4.

I would choose Heeney, but mainly because I don't like Hawkins. I do think he is the more consistent one too, Hawkins could easily have a down game and score 50 or 60 when you really need his score. Cats do have a fairly soft draw though.
Yeah big fan of hawkins draw in the run home
Not an injury threat too
But Heeney 3 90’s and a 100 in his last 5 games seems to be Getting back into form

Also the swans have 3 talls around him right now up forward which frees him up to roam as he pleases and get some more cheap marks up field

My gut says Hawkins but head says Heeney
I’m also bringing in crisp relative safe guy this week so maybe I go for the higher ceiling in Heeney who could go 110+ in the run home to hawkins 95-100

Getting rid of Paddy McCartin this week, was thinking Liam Baker is in some really good form but wasn't so much before he started scoring.
Other option I'm thinking of is Hall coming off 153 and ave 105, but with those hammys....what do you think peeps, who's the best one for the run home,
Baker or Hall ?

I am looking at Hall for my final defender, bit disappointed he had such a good game on the weekend, with Stewart out, it means he's going to be a very popular option now. Baker has been good too, and think it will continue - why change what is working. Hall has the higher ceiling, but is also a bigger injury risk - I probably should be looking more at Baker myself with the amount of trades I have left based on that, but still prefer Hall of the two.
Steele probably scores higher from here, but has some risk coming off an injury. Dawson is a great defender option. Depends which line you think needs strengthening more. I'd take Steele out of the two for points gain from here.

Thanks for the reply, Hall already almost 4000 have traded in this week, taking him up around 6% owned still makes him a pod, I'm really torn on this one, have 5 trades left if I do 2 this week, don't need anymore injuries and Hall has already missed half the season.
