Player Markets
Elliot Yeo has been in scintillating form of late and it has reflected in his fantasy numbers with four scores of 116-plus this season and hauls of 152 and 124 the last two weeks. Despite being well held by the Bulldogs in two games last year, Yeo should play a prominent role in this one.
