GameDay Squad Aussie Rules: Round 12 Team To Beat

Updated: Jun 2, 2023

Join us as Kerm puts on his general manager cap and selects his dream team going into round 12 of the AFL! He'll have the entire player pool to choose from, which should make selecting 6 defenders, 5 midfielders, 1 ruckman, and 6 forwards weekly easy right? Well, let us know who you agree with and who else you might have selected down below on all of our social channels twitter, facebook, instagram, discord.


GameDay Squad Aussie Rules round 12 team to beat


Defenders (DEF)

It's round 12 which means we have bye rounds! Forced changes includes dropping Hayden Young for his bye game, James Sicily for suspension and Angus Brayshaw for... well, being a dud. That might be a bit harsh, Brayshaw was improved with Oliver being out but didn't quite get the opportunity inside that I thought he would, too risky to start this week.





Tom Stewart

Geelong Cats

Verses Western Bulldogs, Saturday at 7:25pm AEST


Round 11 score - 145 GDS fantasy points

Tom Stewart looked back to his damaging self in round 11 where he torched the Greater Western Sydney Giants for 24 kicks! 24 + 4's! If he can keep that level of production up against a Western Bulldogs outfit giving up the fourth most points to key defenders and the seventh most points to medium defenders. Trending up massively!




Will Day

Hawthorn Hawks

Verses Port Adelaide Power, Saturday at 1:45pm AEST


Round 11 score - 119 GDS fantasy points

James Sicily has been ruled out for a week due to copping a suspension, so we are doing a Hawthorn straight swap with Will Day! Day returned to triple figures in round 11, scoring 119 GDS fantasy points thanks to totalling 15 kicks, 15 handballs, 5 marks and 4 tackles. He's one of my favourite players to own and I love the match up against a Port Adelaide midfield giving up a healthy amount of clearances.


Jordan Dawson's bronze GameDay Squad player card

Jordan Dawson

Adelaide Crows

Verses Gold Coast Suns, Saturday at 7:30pm AEST


Round 11 score - 155 GDS fantasy points

He's just too good! Jordan Dawson returned to form after a "down" 101 GDS fantasy points in round 10. His round 11 score of 155 GDS fantasy points is just one point shy of matching his season high score of 156 points, and I think he could be a live chance at toppling that score in round 12 against the Suns.




Sam Docherty

Carlton Blues Verses Melbourne Demons, Friday at 7:50pm AEST


Round 11 score - 120 GDS fantasy points

I will concede that Sam Docherty's role scares me to my bones and despite my unwavering loyalty to the Doc, if there ever was a time to CONSIDER sitting him, it would be this week against the Melbourne Demons. I'm not brave enough to do it... are you?




Mason Redman

Essendon Bombers Verses North Melbourne Kangaroos, Sunday at 4:40pm AEST


Round 11 score - 151 GDS fantasy points

We're going to be replacing Hayden Young with Essendon Bombers weapon Mason Redman. Now, I have had ZERO luck with Redman... If I start him his guaranteed to flop, if I don't start him, he goes 150+ that's just how it goes. The fact of the matter is, he's in insane form. His three most recent scores of 133, 130 and 151 GDS fantasy points puts him right near the top of inform players in fantasy footy right now! He obviously has a plus matchup against the Kangaroos this weekend as well, you could do a lot worse than Mason Redman in this bye round.

Nick Daicos' silver GameDay Squad player card

Nick Daicos

Collingwood Magpies

Verses North Melbourne Kangaroos, Sunday at 3:20pm AEST


Round 11 score - 131 GDS fantasy points

Back in business...



Midfielders (MID)

Like our defence we have some a forced change this week with Andy Brayshaw having a well deserved rest this weekend with his Freo sides bye round. Again, it has to be said that the midfielders were solid once again in round 11, outside of the Andy forced change, no further amendments will be made!

Rory Laird's silver GameDay Squad player card

Rory Laird

Adelaide Crows

Verses Gold Coast Suns, Saturday at 7:30pm AEST


Round 11 score - 143 GDS fantasy points

The guy truly is back to his normal self.


Which is dangerous for non-owners.


Like me...




Sam Walsh

Carlton Blues Verses Melbourne Demons, Friday at 7:50pm AEST


Round 11 score - 136 GDS fantasy points

Weekly Sam Walsh centre-bounce-attendance check in... 57%. I don't know how these 130+ games are accruing so consistently but hey, i love it regardless!




Marcus Bontempelli

Western Bulldogs Verses Geelong Cats, Saturday at 7:25pm AEST


Round 11 score - 135 GDS fantasy points

Marcus Bontempelli has finally made the team to beat team! It truly is well overdue, but he comes in now hot off a scorching 135 GDS fantasy point performance against the Gold Coast Suns in Darwin. Geelong isn't a nice matchup in round 12, but the Bont is a lot of peoples favourite to win the Brownlow for a reason! Get him in.




Zach Merrett

Essendon Bombers

Verses North Melbourne Kangaroos, Sunday at 4:40pm AEST


Round 11 score - 125 GDS fantasy points

Good again from Zach Merrett. Now he faces a North Melbourne side who have no real tagging threat, the Bombers are still light on men in the midfield and Essendon should put up a cricket score - must start!


Tom Green's gold GameDay Squad player card

Tom Green

Greater Western Sydney Giants Verses Richmond Tigers, Sunday at 1:10pm AEST


Round 11 score - 124 GDS fantasy points

Tom Green is very good.

Ruckman (RUCK)

Genuine set and forget right now...

Tim English's platinum GameDay Squad player card

Tim English

Western Bulldogs

Verses Geelong Cats, Saturday at 7:25pm AEST


Round 11 score - 108 GDS fantasy points

#1 ranked ruckman based on average

#1 ranked ruckman based on total scoring


The numbers speak for themselves


Forwards (FWD)

We are going to have to find two forward line replacements with Josh Dunkley and Errol Gulden missing round 12 action due to their bye fixtures. They will look to come straight back in next week!




Jordan De Goey

Collingwood Magpies

Verses North Melbourne Kangaroos, Sunday at 3:20pm AEST


Round 11 score - 154 GDS fantasy points

Look, Collingwood face West Coast in round 12. Literally first vs last... De Goey is going to have a field day!




Zak Butters

Port Adelaide Power

Verses Hawthorn Hawks, Saturday at 1:45pm AEST


Round 11 score - 127 GDS fantasy points

If you're around me you're a Zak Butters fan. I think he's a top 3 player in the competition right now and he isn't third...


Tim Taranto's legend GameDay Squad player card

Tim Taranto

Richmond Tigers

Verses Greater Western Sydney Giants, Sunday at 1:10pm AEST


Round 11 score - 168 GDS fantasy points

I've literally run out of things to say about this bloke.


Stephen Coniglio's bronze GameDay Squad player card

Stephen Coniglio

Greater Western Sydney Giants Verses Richmond Tigers, Sunday at 1:10pm AEST

Round 11 score - 107 GDS fantasy points

Somewhat of a down game from Coniglio, I expect him to bounce back and repay the faith this week against a week Richmond midfield.




Jack Ziebell

North Melbourne Kangaroos

Verses Essendon Bombers, Sunday at 4:45pm AEST


Round 11 score - 109 GDS fantasy points

The ZieGULL was "aight" in round 11. We've been so used to his 120+ scores, but round 11 was a game where most Roos players struggled to get the ball in their hands against the Pies. Much easier assignment against the Bombers this week.




Nic Martin

Essendon Bombers

Verses North Melbourne Kangaroos, Sunday at 4:40pm AEST


Round 11 score - 148 GDS fantasy points

Is its blasphemous selecting Martin over Rozee, Sheezel, Cameron and Greene? Maybe but! You can't deny the form Nic Martin is in and the match up he has against North Melbourne on Sunday. With all the Essendon outs, Martin has been playing up on the wing and is frankly dominating! He's fun to watch as well, get him in!
