With Tony Olango ‘playing’ on Sunday, we have the first six games of the Round to pick a decent choice of Captain / VC. Luckily for us, most of the better options start before the Sunday games anyway. Let’s hope one (or more) of the following can go large for us. Rd17 sees the return of many big names to the Captains Table………… as always, times are in AEST……..
Patrick Dangerfield (GEE) Thursday NIght 7.50pm (vs Adel) – Low score of 94 with a high score of 137 in 2018. Has been solid without being spectacular. Has played the last couple of 4th qtrs up forward, hoping he’s fit enough to now run out a game in the middle. When he does, he’ll crack the 150 mark again. Last five against the Crows: 119, 142, 149, 111 & 126.
Patrick Cripps (CAR) Friday Night 7.50pm (vs Stk) – While he’s not the reason that Carlton disappointed last week, his output was unexpectedly low. Will be looking for a swift return to form here against the Saints. Last two against StKilda: 157 & 124
Tom Mitchell (HAW) Saturday Afternoon 1.45pm (vs Bris) – Only 79 pts last week in the big win against the Dogs despite having 27 touches. Four of his previous six scores were over 135+ so he’s definitely worth another chance. Possibility is there that Jarrod Berry runs a tag but shouldn’t be a huge problem for the Brownlow favorite. If you’re wanting to take Mitch into Gawn, take note of the short gap between games there! Last four against the Lions: 155, 135, 103 & 109.
Max Gawn (MEL) Saturday Twilight 4.35pm (vs Dogs) – Absolutely flying at the minute with four of his last five games over 135+ pts (8/15 for the season). Top scorer in Supercoach right now and you’d be taking a huge risk backing against him right now…….especially against the Ruck-less Dogs. Averaging 17 disposals and 47 hitouts this season, dominating in the Ruck. Had 57 hitouts when these teams met just a few weeks ago. Last time against the Dogs: 139.
