MJ’s Captaincy Candidates – R11

Written by MJ on June 12 2015

#1. Nat Fyfe (v GC: 118, 116; Form: 116, 158, 128) Still yet to miss the ton, Fyfe continues to pose the biggest threat at pumping out a monster score. What better chance than this week against the struggling Suns.

#2. Robbie Gray (v Geel: 101, 85, 106, 70, 63; Form: 87, 136, 119) Last week he was tentatively selected at #4, facing his bogey side, the Western Bulldogs. Lo and behold, he didn’t ton up for the first time in two months. He looks a nice option nonetheless as VC on Friday night.

#3. David Armitage (v Melb: 55, 98, 79, 115, 78; Form: 101, 134, 101) Don’t take too much notice of his recent history against the Dees, as it’s only been as of this season that he’s taken his game to a whole new level. He’s scored at least 129 in five of his ten games. All five were against sides outside the top 8. Facing Melbourne this week, you’d back him in again.

#4. Matt Priddis (v Ess: 111, 116, 103, 24, 104; Form: 110, 101, 128) The 196 in R7 stands as a reminder of Priddis’ capabilities. The Bombers are in some poor form as of late, and this man could be the one to capitalise.

#5. Ollie Wines (v Geel: 98, 41, 77; Form: 124, 123, 100) No harm done in making young Ollie VC this Friday night as an alternative to Gray. If it doesn’t come off, you’ve always got Fyfe for back up.

Dropped from the top 5: Scott Pendlebury has only gone above 120 once in his last five, so I’m giving him a rest this week and will reassess post-bye.

Joel Selwood made 122 last week to end a down turn in form. He’s another one to think about for your VC. I’m expecting Port to win, so I’ve elected to go with the Power duo. Daniel Hannebery is still carving it up and wouldn’t be a bad selection against the Roos, as is Lance Franklin with his form. Todd Goldstein will be a sneaky option in that match as well. Jack Steven has put in a few massive performances as of late, while Steele Sidebottom, Dyson Heppell, David Mundy, Dylan Shiel and Callan Ward would make POD choices as well.

Sorry, there are no polls available at the moment.

  1. Fyfe into Titch.

    I could go boak into fyfe or gray into fyfe, but expecting a good game from geelong, and a lot of people looking at fyfe for captain. Fyfe versus goldy coast is a no brainer.

    Plus there aren’t that many good captain options after. Jpk and buddy are too hit and miss, so too are swan and pendles at present, and i don’t have goldy.

    But, if Fyfe gets injured, or rested by early sub, or there is more to the late flight than just “late” a lot of people’s round goes down the toilet and it is a big chance to climb the rankings.


  2. Definitely thinking Gray into Fyfe this week.

    Just to refresh my memory, do by players get locked out as C options at the beginning or the end of a round?

    Thanks guys.


  3. Would love to take advantage of Fyfe’s early game to throw the VC on him – maybe catch an opponent or two off-guard if he has a quieter game.

    Problem is, I’m not 100% secure with the later C options:

    JPK and Parker – both tossing up some average numbers recently.
    Ward and Treloar – both can go very big, but could just as easily give me a sub-100 score.
    Pendles and Swan – neither look to be threatening to dish up a big score at the moment.

    Am I better off just going Gray/Wines into Fyfe?


  4. After a fair bit of consideration, I have decided to go Fyfe / Pendlebury.
    Agreed, he hasn’t been scoring like previous seasons, but he has a 125 point average against GWS (Only from 3 games, but what the hell).


  5. NicNat is a huge smokey against bombers with no ruck man. Could go huge will all the hit outs to the advantage
