Cheat Sheet and Projections

We've reviewed every player from every team to help you make the best selections on Friday's slate.

Selection Player Salary Proj. Pts Pts/$1K
Stud Rowan Marshall (STK, RK) $16,890 118.1 7
Value Luke Breust (HAW, FWD) $6,000 58.1 9.7
Fade Bayley Fritsch (MELB, FWD) $10,040 54.6 5.4
Cheapie Dom Sheed (WCE, MID) $9,130 84.5 9.3

According to Fantasy Insider's DFS model, our "stud" is the highest projected scorer across the slate, while "value" picks provide 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 highlight 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 AFL DFS, creating an optimal line-up requires understanding key concepts and metrics. When building your AFL Round 10 teams, consider starting with a value player like Luke Breust. To secure one of the highest projected scorers, Rowan Marshall is a strong option. If you're looking for budget-friendly choices to free up salary cap for more studs, explore our cheapie options, including Dom Sheed.

On the other hand, according to our model, Bayley Fritsch is one of the lowest value options on the slate, suggesting you might want to limit exposure to him if building out multiple line-ups.
