June 18, 2021
Bontempelli scored one goal and two behinds to go with 30 disposals (18 kicks, 12 handballs), five marks made and seven completed tackles during Friday's 83-78 loss to Geelong in Round 14.
ANALYSIS
Bontempelli even managed to out-score Jack Macrae in fantasy points, though Macrae still recorded five more disposals in the match. Taking either of the two is usually a safe bet for good points and Bontempelli as Western's captain has scored over 120 points in four straight games.

Leads team in scoring
MWestern Bulldogs
June 6, 2021
Bontempelli scored two goals and two behinds to go with 27 disposals (18 kicks, nine handballs) and six marks made during Sunday's 93-65 win over Fremantle in Round 12.
ANALYSIS
Bontempelli managed to lead the Bulldogs in fantasy points over the league's most productive player, Jack Macrae. There isn't much more to say about how well Bontempelli has played this season, as he's performed well against teams from all over the ladder. With 26.9 disposals per game, Bontempelli only ranks third on his team based on averages but does rank third based on total possessions.
30 disposals in loss
MWestern Bulldogs
May 28, 2021
Bontempelli scored one behind to go with 30 disposals (16 kicks, 14 handballs) in addition to making six marks and eight tackles during Friday's 87-59 loss to Melbourne.
ANALYSIS
Bontempelli didn't have a bad game, but Clayton Oliver's early dominance helped the Dees take control and never look back. If you don't have space for Jack Macrae in a lineup each week, Bontempelli isn't a bad second option as he's scored over 100 fantasy points in all but two games and is playing like he wants to win the Brownlow Medal for the league's best player this season.
Signs four-year contract
MWestern Bulldogs
May 25, 2021
Bontempelli signed a four-year contract extension Tuesday that will keep him with the Western Bulldogs through the 2025 season.
ANALYSIS
Bulldogs' skipper Bontempelli has done nothing but dominate in 2021 for the league-leaders. With over 100 fantasy points in all but two rounds, Bontempelli also ranks 10th in the league in total points for, which is exactly what you want your captain to do each time he steps on the field.
Matches scoring high in win
MWestern Bulldogs
May 22, 2021
Bontempelli scored four goals and three behinds to go with 26 disposals (20 kicks, six handballs while also making five marks and six tackles during Saturday's 144-33 win over Saint Kilda.
ANALYSIS
Bontempelli matched his goalscoring high for a single game throughout his career during another exceptional performance to rout the Saints. With quality performances against Port Adelaide and the struggling Saints over the last two weeks, it's hard to go wrong with picking Bontempelli against any opponent no matter how tough they are.
Game-high 32 disposals v. Carlton
MWestern Bulldogs
May 9, 2021
Bontempelli garnered 32 disposals, 10 clearances, eight tackles, six marks, two goal assists and a single major Sunday as Western outpaced Carlton 107-91 at Marvel Stadium.
ANALYSIS
Bonempelli's game-high 32 disposals fell one short of matching a season-best logged against Gold Coast back on Apr. 17, but still leaves the Western midfielder averaging 26.8 an appearance on the year, 28th-best in the AFL. The 25 year-old also posted his top clearance, tackle and goal assist aggregates of the year in the victory, and, consequently, recorded his fourth 100-point fantasy performance in as many showings.
