Derry’s Mark Lynch, and Cavan’s Gearoid McKiernan scored 72 and 110 respectively in the 2016 NFL competition, and they should put up similar numbers during this year’s competition.
Lynch is still going to kick points and goals even though division two could be competitive, however, be aware that Gearoid McKiernan has a knee injury and is expected to miss the early games of the league.
It is is tempting to gamble with McKiernan because he may start sooner than expected and even though he will miss one game, he still should put up a fairly big number.
Perhaps a safer option might be Ethan Rafferty at midfield. Rafferty had an underwhelming season in division two last year, but he could really cut lose in division three.
The other option is Tyrone’s Mattie Donnelly. He is a reliable fantasy scorer, even against the bigger teams
