Hunter (broken hand) made the team sheet for Round 10 against Saint Kilda.
ANALYSIS
Hunter only missed Round 9 after undergoing surgery on a fracture in his hand and promptly returns to the second-placed Bulldogs lineup. He doesn't offer as much as some of the other stars on his team, but Hunter's fantasy value is solid for a forward with a score no lower than 74 fantasy points over his last five rounds.
