Cheat Sheet and Projections

We have reviewed players from each team in the Brisbane Lions vs Richmond match-up to help you make the best choices on Saturday's slate.

Selection Player Salary Proj. Pts Pts/$1K
Stud Josh Dunkley (BL, MID) $16,800 105.8 6.3
Value Noah Cumberland (RICH, FWD) $6,000 53.3 8.9
Fade Lachie Neale (BL, MID) $15,460 87.4 5.7
Cheapie Kamdyn McIntosh (RICH, MID) $6,000 52.6 8.8

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 budget-conscious strategies, "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.
