VC Options – Round 11

Lance Franklin

Last 3: 60, 112, 48 (73 avg)

Last 3 against Carlton: 183, 82, 86 (117 avg)

Last 3 at SCG: 112, 48, 106 (89 avg)

You’ve gotta think Buddy’s a chance for a bag against the Blues this week. The fact that you can VC him means you probably should. If you want two chances at a safe 130, look at the other guys, but if you want the chance at 180, you go Buddy. Prediction – 130

Patrick Cripps

Last 3: 97, 152, 111 (120 avg)

Last 3 against Sydney: 103, 137, 101 (114 avg)

Last 3 at SCG: 137, 91 (114 avg)

History says Cripps will be good against the Swans but there are way too many good options this week to consider him. Prediction – 120

Jack Macrae

Last 3: 102, 177, 156 (145 avg)

Last 3 against Melbourne: 70, 95, 89 (85 avg)

Last 3 at Etihad: 102, 156, 141 (133 avg)

I know that last week was disappointing and his history against the Dees looks poor, but it’s very hard to not loophole a guy that had a three game average in the 170s. Prediction – 135

Max Gawn

Last 3: 114, 121, 148 (128 avg)

Last 3 against Bulldogs: 49, 74, 76 (66 avg)

Last 3 at Etihad: 127, 168, 27 (107 avg)

Weirdly horrible against the Bulldogs in the past but Gawn’s season so far means he’s always an option. Prediction – 125

Tom Mitchell

Last 3: 116, 155, 72 (114 avg)

Last 3 against Port: 105, 123, 105 (111 avg)

Last 3 at Launceston: 126, 106, 130 (121 avg)

Mitchell is probably your safest VC this week. You know he’ll get 120+ because it’s at Launceston against the Power but the ceiling is not quite at that Macrae/Buddy level. Prediction – 125

Patrick Dangerfield

Last 3: 133, 114, 137 (128 avg)

Last 3 against Gold Coast: 110, 132, 127 (123 avg)

Last 3 at Metricon: 110, 87, 141 (113 avg)

Danger loves to play the Suns and is back in some good form. I like him this week. Prediction – 130

Captain Options – Round 11

Dustin Martin

Last 3: 105, 103, 64 (91 avg)

Last 3 against Essendon: 125, 152, 111 (129 avg)

Last 3 at MCG: 105, 87, 88 (93 avg)

If his form weren’t so crap, I’d be looking at Dusty as a serious option this week. The problem is that he plays at the same time as the Eagles so it’d have to be captain only, which you can’t do when he’s dished up so many low scores this year. Prediction – 100

Dayne Zorko

Last 3: 99, 121, 121 (114 avg)

Last 3 against North: 109, 148, 96 (118 avg)

Last 3 at Etihad: 121, 32, 55 (69 avg)

Ben Jacobs tag is highly likely. Even though Fyfe did well with it, I think Zorko will be back to a low score this week. Prediction – 75

Brodie Grundy

Last 3: 152, 109, 137 (133 avg)

Last 3 against Fremantle: 98, 106, 80 (95 avg)

Last 3 at MCG: 137, 115, 113 (122 avg)

How good is Grundy this year? Just imagine if I’d started him instead of my POD Sauce Jacobs… Should be good again this week, although Sandilands is never an easy opponent. Prediction – 130

Nat Fyfe

Last 3: 163, 101, 126 (130 avg)

Last 3 against Collingwood: 104, 138, 122 (121 avg)

Last 3 at MCG: 142, 99, 107 (116 avg)

Jeez Fyfe was good last week. Against the Pies, there’s no reason he won’t be good again. Prediction – 130

Stephen Coniglio

Last 3: 138, 89, 100 (109 avg)

Last 3 against Adelaide: 132, 95, 72 (100 avg)

Last 3 at AO: 132, 103, 95 (110 avg)

Cogs looks to be back in form after last week. I’m hoping the return of Kelly will mean consistently good scores. Prediction – 125

LaHug’s POD

Gary Ablett

Last 3: 86, 55, 98 (80 avg)

Last 3 against Gold Coast: N/A

Last 3 at Metricon: 159, 114, 97 (123 avg)

VC-able GAJ against his old team at his favourite hunting ground? Yes please. Prediction – 125
