Western Bulldogs AFL Fantasy Prices 2015
Losing the experienced trio of Griffen, Higgins and Cooney probably wasn’t the Dogs plan A, but it’s made way for some young pups in our fantasy teams.

Jackon Macrae: He was a fantasy coaches dream last year, the midpricer that becomes a premium scorer. If you want him this year though you are paying some serious cash with him nearly pushing the $600K mark at $591,000. He averaged 104 last year and scored over 110 on 9 separate occasions including a massive 168 against the Suns. Pricey? Yes. Unique? Very much so. It’d take alot of faith to pick him at that price, especially with the talent that’s now departed the kennel.
Mitch Wallis: Fell out of favour (along with half of the Dogs list it seems) under his former coach. If he can be let off the tagging roles this could see his $329,000 be the easiest cash spent in your salary cap. Back in 2012 just as a young pup he had 11 of his 19 games scoring 89 points or higher. With Griffen and Cooney gone from the midfield the dogs need someone to step up, and from my perspective Mitch is the man to do so. Maybe he’s this seasons Macrae.
Caleb Daniel: Although Frodo Baggins is taller than him Caleb’s a seriously good footballer. He averaged 20 touches and 2 goals a game in the national championships including one monster game of 27 touches, 8 tackles and 3 goals. Hello points! He also played nearly a dozen SANFL games last year too, so he has no problems handling the big bodies and at $157,000 he is priced nicely for a bench spot if he can crack his way into the dogs 22.
The New Position
Marcus Bontempelli: He’s part of the future of the doggies, and although he’s much more suited to another point scoring format of the game he could just about become anything. Scoring 2 tons in his debut year and now that he’s selectable as a Mid/Fwd at $392,000 he’s the most likely of all position changes at the Whitten Oval to succeed in fantasy this year.
The One to Watch
Mitch Honeychurch: The Dogs have plenty of competition for spots and last year ‘Honey’ broke into the Dogs side a handful of times. Sitting at $179,000 this forward is a ball magnet who’ll get a chance to run through the midfield. He was one of the steals of the 2013 draft for the dogs and at this price he may just be one of the best under $200k for us in fantasy.
