R23 Captaincy Candidates – ‘Thank Christ This Season Is Over’ Edition

Written by Chips Ahoy! on August 25 2017

Before we get into it, I just want to give a massive shoutout to Adam, who took it upon himself to create The Numbers Game, which has been an absolutely incredible addition to the site this year and an outstanding resource for all coaches out there. Thanks Adam!

This season has been a challenge from almost every angle; poor performances from so-called premiums, a dud batch of rookies, midprice traps and former burnmen tempting us. We entered the season with Pendles, Ablett, Gawn, Kennedy and Hannebery as five of the six most expensive players, while names such as Swallow, Beams, Roughead, Sandilands and O’Meara could be found in most sides. Thankfully, throughout all this SC BS, Paddy Dangerfield has produced one of the great Supercoach seasons, and provided us with a (mostly) reliable Captaincy option week in, week out.

Lets have a look at the year in review.

Loophole

The best loophole of the season is a tie between Crows dynamo Rory Sloane, and Richmond Superstar Dustin Martin. Both have had brilliant but inconsistent seasons, making them an ideal loophole option. Both have huge ceilings–Dusty 165 and Sloane 177–which can get your weekend off in style, however due to form (Dusty) and tagging (Sloane), they can equally ruin your Sunday roast with a poor showing. Season lows 54 from Dusty and a shocking 36 from Sloane are below each players average even once doubled. Still, if you started with either, you’d be happy to ride the highs and lows, with neither missing a game and finishing in the top 10 overall scorers.

Who’s your VC option for R23?

Lock

Can’t go past Danger. Even after missing a game, he’s still 200 points ahead of the next best, with a season high of 196 and only going sub-100 twice. Incredibly, since Round 9, Paddy only dropped below 140 once, with his 108 against Carlton a few weeks ago. While it can be a bit boring seeing your opponent with the same captain each week, its hard to complain when he keeps putting up fantastic scores.

Inform

Sam Docherty has proved he was no one-season-wonder, by backing up his breakout season with an even better year across the Carlton half-back line. After opening the season with an underwhelming 91 against Richmond, Doc went on a sensational run of consistent scoring, scoring 17 tons from the next 18 games, including 5 scores above 130, proven his worth as a viable Captaincy option. Thankfully, he finally dropped to sub-100 games in Rounds 20 & 21, so those foolish enough to not start with him (me) could finally bring him in.

Smokey

He wasn’t the most popular pick at the start of the season, with under 12% ownership at Round 1, however a few did take a risk on Hawks recruit Tom Mitchell and have be well rewarded, with the ball magnet producing a fantastic season of elite scoring. Now the fifth most owned pure-Mid, Titch works pretty hard for his Supercoach points, however his consistent performances in the Hawthorn engine room have resulted in only two sub-100 scores and five over 130. Bound to be a more popular pick come 2018!

Trap

After a strong pre-season, a few tossed him around as a stepping-stone, although most considered young Melbourne gun Clayton Oliver a mid-price trap. He performed well in 2016 before trailing off late, and with two scores of 91 in rounds 7 & 9, it looked like time to cash him in. However Oliver has kept his scoring up, and goes into the final round as the fifth highest scorer overall – an incredible achievement for a second year player. Still a little inconsistent, with five sub-100 scores dotted throughout the season, but with plenty of upside, he looks like being a lock in Supercoach for many years to come.

Who’s your C for the final round?

  1. Thankyou Schwarzwalder for posting my stats throughout the year. It has been an absolute honour and privilege compiling and providing stats for SCT in 2017.

    1. Like I keep telling you Adam…….if you go to the trouble of compiling it all, then I’ll always find a spot for it. That goes for ALL the Coaches that visit SCT (for future reference), always appreciate your input!
      Thanks again buddy!!

  2. If anyone has any suggestions on how to improve my structure/format of the captaincy candidates article for 2018 it is greatly appreciated.

    Eg. Instead of providing the top 8 or 4 averages vs opponent/timeslot, all options could be sorted from highest to lowest in each category.

    Also if there are any additions you would like to add to the quintet of Kramer, Clavin, Ocean, Dangerfield and Petty list them below and include what they represent.

    Eg. Cher (player turning back time for a vintage performance or possibly returning to form)

  3. Not really liking the look of a C on a Sunday player as mids generally don’t do great against the Saints and Fyfe is a big risk for a C.

    Happier to take a punt on a VC so thinking either

    TU: Rockliff
    TD: Buddy (not sure if the game will be finished may need to take an estimated score.)

  4. Easily one of my favourite articles each week on the site. Thanks to Adam for the stats which have been a major help throughout the year!

    Beams into Danger for me this week. Beams is a POD in both of my Grand Finals so hoping he goes large and will then somehow pray for Danger to have a “down” week.

  5. I don’t have any non-playing players who’s teams are playing on Sunday, so loopholing options are a bit thin for me this week. As such, I can’t VC Dangerfield, so I’ll go with Docherty into him.
