R6 Captaincy Candidates

Written by Chips Ahoy! on April 28 2017

Donuts in Round 5. Well performed rookies being dropped. Dependlebury proving anything but dependable. The best performed player of the season producing a score half his average. Informed coaches with 5 figure rankings.

What does any of this mean? Are we no better than the auto-select tool?

Loophole

Thankfully, we again have a large safety net this week. GWS, the Bulldogs, Carlton, Sydney and Brisbane all play in the first 4 games of the weekend, giving us plenty of options. Bont, Roo, Titch, Smurph, JPK and Rockliff are just some of the big names putting their hands up for VC honours. Perhaps even Heater to learn to channel his rage more effectively. Let’s put it to a vote.

Who’s your VC this weekend?

Lock

I’d never go as far to call Richmond pretenders… but Richmond are pretenders*

The only side they’ve beaten in the Top 8 is the Eagles, which was at the MCG. Adelaide on the other hand, are the real deal. Someone – Tex or Eddy or Laird or everyone’s favorite rookie, Andy Otten – is going to go nuts. But back at the Adelaide Oval, in red-hot form and the new #1 ranked player, Sloane may be the best option.

Sloane’s recent record against the Tigers – 92, 128, 105

*FYI – I’m just bitter about the Tigs beating Melbourne.

Inform

With uncertainty surrounding the Brisbane ruck setup coming into the season, and plenty of mid-price options, Stef Martin found himself with surprisingly low ownership, despite being under-priced coming into the season. However with Gawn going down, he’s suddenly become a more popular option, and those that jumped on would be very happy with his 3 round average of 121. At home against an under performing Port Adelaide ruck division, the Lions big man could be in for a big game.

Martin’s recent record against Port – 119, 76

Smokey

He’s not really a smokey, but with Danger, Pendlebury, Sloane and Dusty playing on Sunday, Fyfe will be another popular VC this weekend. Much like his recent record against West Coast, his performances this year have been consistent and solid, with ripping a game apart (in a SC sense, at least). But Freo have found some form, and with a few games under his belt, the young superstar may be returning to his Brownlow medal winning best.

Fyfe’s recent record against the Eagle – 115, 119, 107, 158, 112

Trap

Pendle’s posted his worst score in 5 years and is playing against Geelong. It’s a bit harsh to list him as a trap, but if you normally use him as your default VC (and Danger as your C), make sure you give someone else a turn this week. He’ll bounce back though. Gun.

Who’s your Captain this week?

  1. I know the above record doesn’t bode too well for a VC option, but I like to roll the dice on the VC. Buddy vs Carlton could be a big one. He’s due to go big and Sydney will be desperate to get a win on the board. If they can start like they did last week vs the Giants, the sky is the limit! I’ve brought Buddy in this week in time for Sydney’s “easy” run.

    Buddy into Danger for me.

    1. I was planning to double down this week just like everyone else, but I think you’re on to something here Fiona. If Robbie Gray can make witches hats out of the Blues backline, what is Buddy going to do to them?

      Done.

  2. I have a theory about avoiding a Friday night VC as they rarely ever go large. I don’t really know if I’m right but it certainly feels that way. Otherwise I’d consider a Dalhaus as VC.

    I’m going to take a punt Hanners this week against the blues in to Dangerfield.
