Scores for third straight game
RMelbourne Demons
June 4, 2021
Gawn scored one goal to go with 17 disposals (13 kicks, four handballs) and made 31 hitouts during Friday's 97-75 win over Brisbane in Round 12.
ANALYSIS
Gawn took home an early goal and then spent the rest of the match dominating his positional battle at ruck to help the 'Dees to an impressive comeback victory. With his fifth straight game of scoring over 100 points, Gawn is set to widen his lead as the most productive ruck in fantasy as both Brodie Grundy (neck) and Toby Nankervis (knee) are hurt.
Dominates in win
RMelbourne Demons
May 28, 2021
Gawn scored one goal and one behind to go with 21 disposals (13 kicks, eight handballs) while also making five marks and recording 27 hitouts during Friday's 87-59 win over the Western Bulldogs.
ANALYSIS
Gawn saw the schedule after last week's narrow loss to Adelaide and put up another 100-point performance to take back first place in the ladder. There are really only two rucks capable of competing with the most valuable midfielders in fantasy, and those are Gawn and Brodie Grundy of Collingwood. As Gawn has scored over 100 points in all but two games, he's worth checking out before picking a high-priced midfielder on occasion.
Impresses in loss
RMelbourne Demons
May 22, 2021
Gawn scored one goal and provided one behind to go with 20 disposals (13 kicks, seven handballs) in addition to making 10 marks and 32 hitouts during Saturday's 96-95 loss to Adelaide.
ANALYSIS
Gawn will likely be among the most valuable rucks in fantasy throughout the season and rank among the top-10 of all players thanks to another round of over 100 points. His two games below that mark, against Fremantle and North Melbourne, are interesting in considering how he's played so well against stronger teams, so it's still worth considering the matchup Gawn has instead of routinely expecting success.
Continues to impress
RMelbourne Demons
April 18, 2021
Gawn scored one goal and two behinds to go with 26 disposals, 10 marks and 24 hitouts recorded in Sunday's 104-54 win over Hawthorn.
ANALYSIS
Gawn's production remains central to the Dees' successes, and he still put up massive numbers despite only recording 24 hitouts in this match. He still has yet to face another serious contender for the flag, but Gawn's value should remain high until he faces tougher positional matchups.
Another 130-point performance
RMelbourne Demons
April 11, 2021
Gawn scored one goal to go with 23 disposals (16 kicks, seven handballs), six marks made and 41 hitouts recorded in Sunday's 85-60 win over Geelong.
ANALYSIS
Gawn scored his third goal of the season and topped 40 hitouts for the second time as he recorded more than 130 points in back-to-back weeks. If the Demons can keep up their impressive pace to start the season, look for Gawn to continue to thrive, though he has yet to play a truly tough opponent so far.
