CAPTAIN McCAPTAINFACE Round 19

Published by Damo on

Damo has again stepped up to the plate this week, filling in for Patch on Captain McCaptainface.

FRIDAY 27TH OF JULY

Essendon vs Sydney – Etihad Stadium – 7.50PM AEST

Devon Smith has been in some great form but is he good enough to put the VC on? Zach Merrett is another you can look at, but he’ll likely cop attention from George Hewett.

On the other side of the coin, Lance Franklin is usually a resident vice captain for Friday night games because he has the ability to turn it on, but he also has the ability to stink it up so nailing your captain would be your main concern if he doesn’t do all that great. Jake Lloyd is another who has been in some great form lately averaging 119.6 over the last 5 games.

SATURDAY 28TH OF JULY

Richmond vs Collingwood – MCG – 1.45PM AEST

Is Dustin Martin back? Scores of 110 and 139 in his last two games would suggest he’s definitely entering some of sort of form. Not much else on Richmond’s end you can bank on though.

Brodie Grundy up against Toby Nankervis will be an interesting battle, both ruckmen are very mobile and it could either prove one’s ascendency over the other, or end in a dead heat. Scott Pendlebury has been “Mr Reliable” in the past, can he produce a big score in a big game again?

Geelong vs Brisbane – GMHBA Stadium – 2.10PM AEST

I don’t know if you’ve heard of him, but a little player called Patrick Dangerfield loves playing Brisbane scoring 166, 131 and 165 in his last three games against them. Joel Selwood is another option you could look at, but he’ll likely cop attention from Jarrod Berry.

Dayne Beams is in very good touch lately, and could go gangbusters against the Geelong star studded midfield. The other Dayne of the Zorko variety is also a very good option scoring a 196 the last time these two teams played.

GWS Giants vs St Kilda – Spotless Stadium – 4.35PM AEST

Josh Kelly likes to beat up on lowly teams for example he scored a 146 and a 149 against Gold Coast and Brisbane earlier in the year. Dawson Simpson could absolutely monster whoever the Saints put the ruck, but that would be a huge gamble. Stephen Coniglio scored a 116 last time these two played.

Nobody from St Kilda really takes my fancy in this game.

Gold Coast vs Carlton – Metricon Stadium – 7.25PM AEST

Patrick Cripps. That is all.

Adelaide vs Melbourne – Adelaide Oval – 7.40PM AEST

Matt Crouch is a contested ball beast and has the ability to rack ‘em up, nobody else from Adelaide really takes my fancy in this game.

Max Gawn has never played at Adelaide Oval, but is averages 130 points outside of Melbourne this year. Clayton Oliver is averaging the same outside of Melbourne this year, and scored a 142 in his last game against the Crows at Adelaide Oval.

SUNDAY 29TH OF JULY

North Melbourne vs West Coast Eagles – Blundstone Arena – 1.10PM AEST

Shaun Higgins is likely to receive attention from Mark Hutchings who has been great form this year for the Eagles as a tagger. Nobody else for the Kangaroos really stands out.

Elliot Yeo loves playing the Kangaroos scoring a 139 the last time these two teams faced off. Andrew Gaff is a player who is very good at football and scored a 119 last time these two teams played.

Western Bulldogs vs Port Adelaide – MARS Stadium – 3.20PM AEST

Jack Macrae has come back from injury, and will be playing against the team he actually initially injured himself against. He’s been very good this year aside from that, and will be looking to bounce back from a poor performance against West Coast. Marcus Bontempelli has been cleared to return but that’s not here nor there yet, much like his form this year.

Robbie Gray scored a 121 the last time these two teams played, and is another who has been in some great form this year. Justin Westhoff has the ability to pull a monster score out of nowhere too, but is not that reliable as a captaincy option.

Fremantle vs Hawthorn – Optus Stadium – 4.40PM AEST

Lachie Neale would’ve loved to hear that Daniel Howe is out this week, so you would think he’ll run a bit more freely this week. Michael Walters is Fremantle’s most effective player once he enters their attacking 50, and loves playing at Optus Stadium, and he has the ability to pull out a monster score. Luke Ryan will be given the green light to run the ball out of the Dockers defence and I anticipate that he’ll probably see a lot of the ball too.

Tom Mitchell, I don’t know if I need to say anything else. He scored a 192 last week and is averaging 144 on the road. If you wanted to take a gamble, then Jaeger O’Meara has been some very good form lately, averaging a 108.8 over his last five games.

TOP 5 CAPTAIN OPTIONS:

  1. Tom Mitchell
  2. Patrick Cripps
  3. Patrick Dangerfield
  4. Max Gawn
  5. Josh Kelly

Who are you putting your trust in this week? Have I missed anyone?

Cheers Damo, still trying to narrow the options down, loopholes are looking awkward this week.
One of JPK/Dusty/Danger into Titch/Gawn looks the goods.

Lazza

Thanks Damo.. had almost locked in Gawn into Titch, but looking at your stats, Danger might be the better option.. been burnt by Buddy 3 or 4 times this year on the VC, so passing..

dontblushbaby

Danger into Titch will be the most popular imo

Lekdog

Cripps. I love you. Pls cuddle me.

Lazza

Go to training… you might get lucky… train as they play…. I hear their tackling is more like cuddling… 😁😛

Blueth

i just wanna walk around his apartment wearing his big jumper with a hot cup of cocoa.

Lazza

Want to bring in a F7.. in price order- Smith, De Goey, Heeney, Greene, Taranto???? Will be looping with Buddy …
If Heeney, he will stay on field and will move Walters to F7.

George S

think its (well past) time to upgrade Rocky. Money's not a problem, though who would we recommend out of Kelly, McCrae, Neale or Gaff for the rest of the year? Leaning towards McCrae though wary of the tag from North in the finals

Ja191

Macrae

Cobee Bear

Macrae then Kelly

Derek

When is Fyfe back?

Finnius

Still 3 weeks away they reckon Derek.

Russty_

They've been saying 3-4 weeks for the last 2 weeks.

JohnDJ59

I've caved in and traded Fyfe out, can't wait any longer.

Russty_

Good call I think John…critical part of the season, can't have 500k + sitting on the bench.

JohnDJ59

If he was going to be back next week I would have waited, since I have the cover, but any longer it would have been finals time and I will need my best on the field.

George S

Thanks all for the advice

George S

Also, perhaps I'm losing my sanity, though is it worth going Boak (underachieving ) to Stanley , gaining forward/ruck swing if Gawn or Goldy go down in the finals?

The Ranger

Yeah, you've lost it George.

Derek

Have a lie down. It’s been a tough season.

redherringfc

I had a bit of a look at Stanley last week, with the idea of a week in the ruck to see what happens with Kreuzer then swing him forward for Sicily.

The main reason I didn’t do it is because I didn’t want people laughing at me. (and I didn’t think he’d score enough)

Russty_

Stanley's only averaging a few more points per week than Boak, only lately has he started posting some decent scores, depends on how many trades you have but I'd be tempted to forget about the ruck swing that might never be needed and go for the best forward you can…if you can spare the trade, and money.

George S

Cheers all

"Max Gawn has never played at Adelaide Oval"

Do you mean never played Adelaide at the Adelaide Oval? Because Max has played Port Adelaide a couple of times there.

Max's previous scores at Adelaide Oval: 151 & 140.

Ricardo

Not sure why people keep mentioning Buddy in loophole calculations. He's not loophole relevant this season. Damo has hit the top five on the head. Personally going Danger-Cripps.

redherringfc

You’ve convinced me.

Buddy it is.

Florence Maxwell

Cheers Damp

Saints_12

Thoughts on Toby Greene in for Rocky?

Cobee Bear

I think the risk outweighs the reward

Finnius

Who is M8/F6 now v then

Saints_12

Either Heeney,McLean or M.Robinson

Finnius

No point then. I reckon keep those blokes in the fwd line and go with Rocky in the guts, or get a proper good M8 in. Can't go halfway as they will both probably average 90 from hereon in.

Marty

Toby hasn't shown much since his return

Russty_

Toby could drop a big score anytime..also he could karate kick someone's head off.

Cobee Bear

I can't decide whether to go Lloyd, Kelly or Gawn as VC into Titch, or Lloyd/Kelly into Gawn. The Banfield tag worries me a bit

The Ranger

DeGoey's out for at least 2wks with stress fractures

Russty_

Yikes!…painful for the Pies and anyone who brought him in the last few weeks , was flying too.

TheGreatBozza

Brought him in about a month ago as my my F7/M9 which was working a treat. Now looking at someone like Menegola or Darling, and push Walters to F7

Shake_n_Bake_

Hurts as a pies supporter 🙁

The Ranger

Not ideal is it Shake. We're running out of decent midfielders.
Wills might get a game.

Shake_n_Bake_

For this game l think they might run with Crocker or even Fasolo Ranger.

The Ranger

Hope its not Barry.
I'd be tipping that Moore back in will be the only change.
Crispy will push into the midfield hopefully.

Stacky23

hold with fritsch as cover yes or no?, confirmed top 4

The Ranger

Depends on how many trades but yeah, I'd probably hold this week and see how it pans out.

dontblushbaby

I wonder how many of the 1100 who bought him this week will check teams reverse the trade ?

Cobee Bear

Jim Webster set to miss again

TheGreatBozza

Anyone think Darling can get back to his pre injury form? Coming off a 93, and priced at $422K.
Only downside is 2 home games to close the season, including a trip to Hobart this week

Jim

Sydney fans, how long does Colin oriordan stay in the side for?? Can he keep his stop for the rest of the year? And who did he replace.

Yeahnah

Who to start on bench for emergency loophole: JPK, Zerrett, Dusty?

Blueth

Know you've gotta pump the words out but if anyone has the balls to go with any of Dawson Simpson, Higgins, O'meara, Ryan or Westhoff, I'm a chicken Marge

Shaky

Who should I trade in macrae,Oliver,Kelly,gaff or Kennedy?? I don't have them in my team

The Ranger

I'd probably put them in that order Shaky

Daz

Oliver, Macrae, Gaff, Kelly then Kennedy but all are good.

Audrey Horne

Oliver if he’s fit.

Hawks

Kelly, I think the Giants are going to finish the home and away season strong, and Kelly & Cogs will lead the way

Daz

I'm top 4 in all my leagues, would anyone suggest holding Fyfe through 1st week of finals if he doesn't get up rd. 20? He would be a great pod in finals. Walters is cover and I have 4 trades left.

Derek

still 3 weeks away. don't think you can hold him that long.

Cobee Bear

No guarantee he bursts back into form. Hammies can shake a player's confidence to explode off the mark

Maverick_

best budget replacement options for:
WEBSTER: short, witherden, McGovern or T.McDonald

SICILY: WIngard, T.Mcdonald, Greene or Gunston

very limited on cash unfortunately

HarryH76

I have Webster too and just read on Saints website it's probably this week only. Do you need to trade or got no cover?

Maverick_

only naughton (yuck) i don't like groin injuries… i can see them resting him more with no finals in the picture.

Russty_

How many trades left Mav?….if you have more than a few, maybe Naughton to O'Riordan for cover if Webster's back next week.

Maverick_

jeez this is actually a bloody good idea. o'riordan will be much better cover for finals also!
4 trades left russty

2 after i fix the issues above

Audrey Horne

Witherden and Wingard for me.

HarryH76

Such a shame Jordan Dawson is picked. Not the time of year for rookie downgrades and he would have been SC gold for 2019 if he didn't play 2018.

But ok ok, good luck to him finally getting a crack!

Maverick_

anybody know what role gunston played last round v carlton?
Assuming scoring only 80 he didnt get thrown down back into sicily's spot.

Hawks

He played back for most of the time, but the ball spent so much time in the Hawthorn forward line in the first half

David.C

best options
F6. menegola, wingard, gunston or greene.

D6. short, Mcdonald or McGovern

Hawks

F6 – Greene

D6 – ???

r_calve

greene & tmac

dontblushbaby

Fergus Greene FWD – confirmed to debut for the Dogs
