Cheat Sheet and Projections

We have reviewed players from each team in the West Coast Eagles vs Fremantle match-up to help you make the best selections on Saturday's slate.

Selection Player Salary Proj. Pts Pts/$1K
Stud Caleb Serong (FRE, MID) $17,420 105 6
Value Noah Long (WCE, FWD) $6,000 48.3 8
Fade Jordan Clark (FRE, DEF) $13,830 83.8 6.1
Cheapie Jaeger O'Meara (FRE, MID) $7,500 56.4 7.5

According to Fantasy Insider's DFS model, our "stud" is the highest projected scorer across the slate, while "value" picks offer the most "bang for your buck," meaning they're expected to perform well relative to their salary.

Conversely, a "fade" is a player considered to offer lower value for money, based on their expected score relative to their salary. For those needing to stay under the salary cap, "cheapie" options refer to the best value players at lower price points not already mentioned.

In fantasy sports, understanding value—assessing a player's potential output against their salary—is crucial, as players scoring high relative to their cost are key in crafting the optimal line-up.

The "Pts/$1K" metric shows the predicted points for every $1,000 of a player's salary. A higher number indicates better value, making it easier to spot players who could outperform their cost.

In DFS, creating an optimal line-up requires understanding key concepts and metrics. When building your AFL Eagles vs Dockers Round 6 teams, consider starting with a value player like Noah Long. To secure one of the highest projected scorers, Caleb Serong is a strong option. If you're seeking budget-friendly choices to free up salary cap for more studs, check out our cheapie options, including Jaeger O'Meara.

On the other hand, according to our model, Jordan Clark is one of the worst value options in this game, suggesting you might want to limit exposure to him if putting together multiple line-ups.
