St Kilda's experienced players are still relied on heavily and it's a theme that rings true when calculating fantasy points. They're oldies, but goodies. The Saints' midfield of Lenny Hayes, Leigh Montagna and Nick Dal Santo can all still rake in the fantasy scores. Ruckman Ben McEvoy has shown he is capable at times. Now the time has come for the younger players to break through and take ownership in this area. The Saints ranked fourth in the competition for kicks and sixth in tackles, so there's potential there. Look out for Saints forward Tom Lee, who should see plenty of senior opportunities this season.

2012'S TOP SCORERS
Leigh Montagna
2012 AFL Fantasy average score:
97
2013 AFL Fantasy Dream Team price: 498,100
2013 AFL Fantasy position: Mid  
Mr Fantasy says: St Kilda's leading point-scorer in 2012 and has the club’s second-best average behind Brendan Goddard. Popular pick.

Lenny Hayes
2012 average score:
95
2013 price: $489,900
2013 position: Mid
Mr Fantasy says: A health scare in the off-season won't stop this warhorse. Price is fair and expect another big year.

Nick Dal Santo
2012 average score:
91
2013 price: $471,200
2013 position: Mid
Mr Fantasy says: Finished the year valued around $110,000 less than at the start of 2012. Still averaged in the 90s and is still valuable.

David Armitage
2012 average score:
89
2013 price: $459,500
2013 position: Mid
Mr Fantasy says: Finally enjoyed the game-time he deserved in 2012, averaging almost 90 in 21 games. Reaching his peak.

Jack Steven
2012 average score:
84
2013 price: $433,300
2013 position: Mid
Mr Fantasy says: Speedy midfielder who breaks lines and finds plenty of the footy. Expect further improvement in 2013.

Sean Dempster
2012 average score:
76
2013 price: $389,900
2013 position: Def
Mr Fantasy says: Enjoyed a great season in 2012, but Dream Team scores were still below 80. I would be looking elsewhere.

Nick Riewoldt
2012 average score:
86
2013 price: $441,400
2013 position: Fwd
Mr Fantasy says: Used to be one of the first picked, but injury and waning output have seen a drop-off in his Dream Team scores. Looks a risk in 2013.

Stephen Milne
2012 average score:
68
2013 price: $352,700
2013 position: Fwd
Mr Fantasy says: Always entertaining, but often has Dream Teamers ripping out their hair with some poor scores. I'd pass.

Ben McEvoy
2012 average score:
89
2013 price: $457,900
2013 position: Ruck
Mr Fantasy says: Very solid average and despite price, certainly looks a viable ruck option again this season.

Sam Gilbert
2012 average score:
66
2013 price: $339,100
2013 position: Def
Mr Fantasy says: Was once a Dream Team star in the backline, but struggled last season with an average of just 65. Seems to have lost confidence. Pass.
