Who’s Your Captain? – Round *checks notes* 13

Published by Damo on

I can’t believe I’m saying this but thank god we have been able to breathe for the these last 3 days. The Festival is over….for now, and we can finally actually properly think about everything to do with our SuperCoach team.

One of the easier things to do during the chaos was decide on your captain, but that’s not going to stop me from telling you who to go for.

VICE CAPTAINS

Patrick Cripps
Last 3 vs Gold Coast: 169, 73, 115
Last 3 at TIO Stadium: nil

Plays the Gold Coast on Friday night in Darwin. Hasn’t reached his usual heights this year but loves a game against the Suns where he scored massively last time they met.

Marcus Bontempelli
Last 3 vs Melbourne: 93, 128, 90
Last 3 at Metricon: 199, 96, 87

Had a monster game against the Crows but is unlikely to get the same freedom against the Dees. Positively, he hasn’t gone below 114 in his last 3 games now, appears to be getting on a roll.

Jack Macrae
Last 3 vs Melbourne: 120, 105, 131
Last 3 at Metricon: 118, 162, 169

My pick of the Bulldogs players given his history both at Metricon and against the Demons. Had an acceptable game against the Crows last week but was clearly playing second fiddle to Smith and Bontempelli, hopefully this week he has a more driving role in that stacked Dogs midfield.

Clayton Oliver
Last 3 vs Western Bulldogs: 75, 125, 136
Last 3 at Metricon: 177, 175, 83

Like Macrae, Oliver also scores well both at Metricon and against his opposition, but Oliver doesn’t have as good of a record against the Demons and at Metricon compared to Macrae. Still a great option.

CAPTAINS

Nat Fyfe
Last 3 vs Swans: 101, 115, 145
Last 3 at Optus Stadium: 112, 130, 121

Dockers saw last week what happens when you leave their best midfielder up forward for too long. While I don’t think his forward stints have disappeared, I’d be surprised if he didn’t spend more time in the midfield against the Swans.

Jake Lloyd
Last 3 vs Dockers: 121, 173, 82
Last 3 at Optus Stadium: 137, 121, 119

The Dockers like to bomb the ball into their 50, and Jake Lloyd loves to intercept. It’s a better love story than Eddie McGuire and Dermott Brereton on Friday Night Footy.

Patrick Dangerfield
Last 3 vs Adelaide: 128, 83, 158
Last 3 at Adelaide Oval: 141, 128, 158

Dangerfield is going to walk all over the Crows, he usually does. It doesn’t matter where they are on the ladder it’s pretty much a given that Dangerfield will usually score well, and big.

Lachie Neale
Last 3 vs St Kilda: 79, 118, 117
Last 3 at Gabba: 167, 130, 147

Lachie will likely find himself with Jack Steele following him around. May not score well, but also has every chance of laughing his way to a 130+ score. Still worth putting the C on, but I’d seriously consider switching if your VC fails.

Brodie Grundy
Last 3 vs North Melbourne: 133, 113, 114
Last 3 at the Gabba: 148, 147, 100

He has had two scores above 145 in his last three games, and has a reasonably good history both at the Gabba and against the Kangaroos. He’s returning to the form we all know and love.

What’s your VC/C combination this week, Community?

I’m using Gawn as VC if playing. Will score big if English is out

Jesse

Martin against the dons is a chance

The Lost Boys

Hey community! Looking for advice on dealing with the round 15 bye forward line carnage. I’m going for overall rank, and most of my forwards will miss.
I have Petracca and Whitfield playing, then Greenwood, B.Smith, Simpkin and Rankine all with byes. Close (bye) and Skinner (doubtful to be selected) on the bench.
Looking at the teams that will be playing in round 15, there’s not a lot to like. Dusty (inconsistent & expensive), Andrew Brayshaw (impact of Fyfe / Walters), and then maybe gamble on Oscar McInerney (playing against Grundy in r15) or James Rowbottom? Possibly Toby Greene if he’s back? Huge gamble on Jack Darling playing Essendon in r15?
Am I missing any targets?
Trying to plan ahead and will look to upgrade Rankine either this week or next, and then maybe sideways trade B.Smith after r14 and his 150 rolls out.
Cheers!

One Touch Wonder

sicily to hawkins. put the VC on him.

(VC) Oliver, (C) Neale.

Pman

Steele will go to Neale who doesn’t usually score well with a heavy tag and scored his lowest score of the year with 87 against DeBoer of GWS.

Russty_

Hey mate, Steele hasn’t been tagging very much at all this season, the last time he did I think it was only for one quarter, he’s more of a free roamer now. Plus if Ratts decided to waste him by tagging Neale, there’s still Zorko and Lyons to deal with.

Pman

Good point, plus its likely Oliver will do the job for him anyway as VC given his recent form.

Emmanuel Lambou

Grundy and Neale

ST1974

I have put the VC on Mcrae and the C on Neale. However, I am thinking of switching the C to Nic Nat given he is playing at Optus Stadium. Thoughts?

Dave

I like that. Unless you have Fyfe (playing against Sydney), Nic Nat is a good option. Every chance Steele runs with Neale which could hurt his score a bit

jobie

i had nic nat captain and dusty vc
