VC Options – Round 10

Brodie Grundy

Last 3: 109, 137, 110 (119 avg)

Last 3 against Bulldogs: 82, 107, 63 (84 avg)

Last 3 at Etihad: 109, 114, 125 (116 avg)

Good form and up against the Bulldogs, a team without a great rucking force. Prediction – 120

Jack Macrae

Last 3: 177, 156, 189 (174 avg)

Last 3 against Collingwood: 92, 104, 122 (106 avg)

Last 3 at Etihad: 156, 141, 103 (133 avg)

If you have him, you absolutely must give him the VC again. If you don’t… ouch. Prediction – 160

Marcus Bontempelli

Last 3: 120, 132, 145 (132 avg)

Last 3 against Collingwood: 120, 137, 78 (112 avg)

Last 3 at Etihad: 132, 145, 105 (127 avg)

The Bont is scoring incredibly well at the moment, especially after a rough start, and he’s not even the best scorer in his team… A good choice if you lack Macrae. Prediction – 130

Dayne Zorko

Last 3: 121, 121, 164 (135 avg)

Last 3 against Sydney: 88, 110, 124 (107 avg)

Last 3 at Gabba: 121, 164, 37 (107 avg)

The Zork is back and the only reason I don’t have him is that I consulted JB and Pistol for advice… I expect Hewett to tag him this weekend but I don’t know if that’ll slow him down right now. Prediction – 120

Lance Franklin

Last 3: 112, 48, 98 (86 avg)

Last 3 against Brisbane: 160, 106, 90 (119 avg)

Last 3 at Gabba: 106, 90, 171 (122 avg)

Buddy smashed the Lions last year and, if you expect the Lions to come crashing back to Earth like the Blues did last week, you’ve got an excellent VC choice. Prediction – 130

Patrick Dangerfield

Last 3: 114, 137, 108 (120 avg)

Last 3 against Carlton: 108, 127, 130 (122 avg)

Last 3 at Kardinia: 108, 94, 103 (102 avg)

Danger is almost a POD this season and is in decent form. If the Cats bounce back hard against the lowly Blues, Danger could go huge. Prediction – 120

Patrick Cripps

Last 3: 152, 111, 94 (119 avg)

Last 3 against Geelong: 86, 68 (77 avg)

Last 3 at Kardinia: N/A

Cripps is the only Blue that can hold his head high right now. Smashed it last week but I’d be worried about the Cats at the Cattery. Can you believe Cripps has never played there? Prediction – 110

Josh Kelly

Last 3: 91, 108, 116 (105 avg)

Last 3 against Essendon: 176, 81, 95 (117 avg)

Last 3 at Showgrounds: 101, 144, 106 (117 avg)

Kelly is likely to be back this week and, although it’s probably insane to pick him coming off an injury, there’s no risk if you take him as a VC… Prediction – 115

Captain Options – Round 10

Tom Mitchell

Last 3: 155, 72, 127 (118 avg)

Last 3 against West Coast: 127, 113, 36 (92 avg)

Last 3 at Etihad: 75, 111, 161 (116 avg)

Well, Brisbane tagged Mitchell last week, as I predicted, but it didn’t do anything. I can’t work out if he’s taggable or not this year. The Eagles aren’t tagging super hard so I expect another good score from Tom this week. Prediction – 130

Max Gawn

Last 3: 121, 148, 127 (132 avg)

Last 3 against Adelaide: 57, 98 (78 avg)

Last 3 at Alice Springs: 167, 36 (102 avg)

The fact that a 121 is disappointing says is all about Max this season. He hasn’t scored amazingly against the Crows in the past but his season this year removes those concerns. Prediction – 130

Nat Fyfe

Last 3: 101, 126, 142 (123 avg)

Last 3 against North: 139, 126, 141 (135 avg)

Last 3 at Perth: 126, 114, 151 (130 avg)

Will get tagged by Jacobs. No thanks. Prediction – 90

Lachie Neale

Last 3: 110, 118, 123 (117 avg)

Last 3 against North: 90, 119, 120 (110 avg)

Last 3 at Perth: 118, 151, 100 (123 avg)

I expect Neale to do the heavy lifting with Fyfe likely to be tagged this week. He’s good at home so expect good things. Prediction – 120

LaHug’s POD

Jack Darling

Last 3: 181, 125, 132 (146 avg)

Last 3 against Hawthorn: 66, 105, 86 (86 avg)

Last 3 at Etihad: 112, 79, 96 (96 avg)

I don’t expect him to average 146 or anything but Darling is in incredible form right now. Why can’t he kick another 6+ against the Hawks? Their tiny backline got smashed by Hipwood and co. last week, and I think Darling’s a little bit better than those blokes. Prediction – 135
