AFL 2017 Round 12 - Adelaide v St Kilda

Sam Jacobs in action against the Saints

Sam Jacobs has continued to exhibit outstanding AFL Fantasy form, following his selection to afl.com.au’s mid-season All Australian team.

'Sauce' led the Crows with 117 points in a strong team-wide performance against St Kilda at Adelaide Oval on Friday night. 

The ruckman was prolific at the contest, recording 37 hit-outs and claiming five clearances in the process.

Tom Lynch followed with 115 points, dominant around the ground with eight marks, five inside 50ms and three goals.

It’s the seventh time Lynch has reached triple figures this season, now priced at $474,000.

The pair were two of four Adelaide players to crack the Fantasy ton, fast becoming staples in Fantasy teams league wide.

Rory Laird (115) remained consistent, racking up 34 touches (11 contested) and operating at a stellar 85 per cent disposal efficiency.

His consistency comes at a price. Now averaging 103 points, the hard-nosed defender will cost team owners a premium of $561.000.

Josh Jenkins (101) was a valuable target up forward, taking eight marks and slotting three goals.

Happy to spread the wealth, a team-first approach saw nine Crows register at least 90 Fantasy points against the Saints.

Rory Atkins (99) and Brad Crouch (95) combined for 49 disposals. Crouch also led Adelaide for tackles with eight of his own.

Taylor Walker (92) and Richard Douglas (91) proved useful around the ground, while Brodie Smith (90) showcased his link up play with a team-high seven inside 50ms.
