R7 Captaincy Candidates

Written by Chips Ahoy! on May 5 2017

I was slightly disappointed to login and see my draft Captain Tom Rockliff scored just 106 this weekend, only to suffer further horror when I quickly realised his original pitiful score of 53 had already been doubled.

Likewise, popular Captaincy Candidates Dangerfield (65) and Fyfe (62) produced scores most would be dissatisfied with even if they had achieved their final, multiplied tally.

However all of this was overshadowed by the return of Gary Ablett Jnr AKA Son of God, who pumped out a glorious double ton. It was great to see a return to form for the once almighty, although I don’t think many ever questioned his scoring capacity, but just his ability to stay on the park. Do we repent, become True Believers and trade GAJ in, or cancel our subscriptions to the Resurrection?

Some unexpected drama’s mean we’ll keep this week’s post short, and let the polls determine who the best options are. Let us know in the comments who you’re rolling with this week.

Loophole

With Sloane, Pendles (both Saturday arvo) and Danger (Saturday night) all playing relatively early in the round, it does leave us a little short on options. Who’s your VC this week?

After last weeks performance, and rumours of an injury, perhaps Danger isn’t the default Captaincy fallback anymore. The Cats game clashes with the Dogs, so it’ll be interesting to see if young superstar Marcus Bontempelli can claim the R7 crown of preferred Captain.

  1. Completely off the wall with this one, VC on GAZ, hoping thats the trick, as my only backup for Captain afterwards is Oliver, i know he’s not posted a massive score, but he hasn’t failed to hit a ton yet this year, If Gaz fails, i’ll happily take anything over 100

  2. I’m tossing up between GAJ or Danger as VC. Into Fyfe.Can’t see Danger playing 2 bad ones in a row like Pendles before him so leaning towards him.

    1. 90 then 65 last two weeks, I’d call that two bad ones in a row. I know 90’s not too bad, but its bad for Dangerfield

  3. If I had the cohunas I would leave Dangerfield out of the C/VC calculations…But my wife has them; so I won’t.

  4. Pendles obvious vc.
    Hard to decide c if he doesnt score.
    Danger looks to be struggling after the hawks game. Even against saints his last quarter saved him from a poor score.
    Tempted to go fyfe at domain against the dons even though he let me down last week.

  5. Surprised that nobody seems to be considering Hanners – he’s the top averaging candidate vs opp, in this round, playing a sc-friendly team, AND finding a bit of form himself?

    Regarding his alky ban, take it from someone who quit sugar for a while – you feel worse before you feel the greatest you’ve ever felt… he might be about to embark on a 120av from here on out, Horse pending…

    I don’t have him, but will watch my Lions play him and bung the magnifying glasses on.

  6. Camping weekend with the lads for me. Which means a risky set and forget approach. Leaning towards Pendles over Danger.

  7. Danger will rip it up against the Suns this week, you heard it here first.

    The standard Pendlebury into Dangerfield for mine.

  8. Bontempelli isn’t just my preferred perma-captain, he’s shown himself to be Champion Data’s preferred perma-captain!

    Hence, Pendlebury into Bontempelli.

  9. It’s Pendles into Danger for me, but I’m thinking of looking into Adams a bit more if I get time.

    Love your Champion Data twitter meme today. For anyone interested there’s a very brief insight into aspects of CD’s calculation methods, also known as a thousand monkeys on a thousand typewriters…

    It’s on the Purefooty podcast on SEN from yesterday (04.05.17), starting around the 17:00 minute mark. See bottom of page, https://www.sen.com.au/podcasts/
