LaHug’s Captains 2019 – Round 19

0

Brodie Grundy is so hot right now! Let’s see who he’s playing this week… Oh, it’s the Tigers, that team that gives up big scores to opposition rucks. Huge score on the cards. Pity I didn’t back him last week and went with the Cripps/Danger combo instead…

VC Options – Round 19

Brodie Grundy

Last 3: 157, 137, 145 (146 avg)

Last 3 against Richmond: 137, 146, 157 (147 avg)

Last 3 at MCG: 145, 84, 124 (118 avg)

Lock. Prediction – 150

Lachie Neale

Last 3: 98, 118, 151 (122 avg)

Last 3 against Hawthorn: 114, 111, 90 (105 avg)

Last 3 at Launceston: 123, 78, 60 (87 avg)

Way down on where I thought he would be last week. Neale should be better this week against the Hawks in Launceston. Prediction – 120

Max Gawn

Last 3: 132, 117, 46 (98 avg)

Last 3 against St Kilda: 126, 145, 127 (133 avg)

Last 3 at Docklands: 117, 139, 127 (128 avg)

Despite Marshall’s clear talent this season, he was well beaten by Gawn when they matched up in Round 5 this year. Gawn managed a 126 then and I think he should be good again this week. Prediction – 125

Captain Options – Round 19

Jack Macrae

Last 3: 120, 120, 116 (119 avg)

Last 3 against Fremantle: 85, 98, 108 (97 avg)

Last 3 at Docklands: 120, 120, 116 (119 avg)

Macrae’s form is looking nice in recent weeks and he gets another go under the roof this week. He’s not great against the Dockers though so I might suggest looking elsewhere. Prediction – 115

Josh Dunkley

Last 3: 127, 202, 103 (144 avg)

Last 3 against Fremantle: 93, 42, 91 (75 avg)

Last 3 at Docklands: 127, 202, 103 (144 avg)

Dunkley’s great form continues but he’s shocking against the Dockers too. Surely he bucks that trend this week. Prediction – 120

Nat Fyfe

Last 3: 154, 76, 147 (126 avg)

Last 3 against Bulldogs: 128, 113, 61 (101 avg)

Last 3 at Docklands: 101, 154, 121 (125 avg)

The Bulldogs midfield is getting so much of the ball this season that opposition mids aren’t scoring as highly as we’d like them to. That said, Fyfe likes to play against them and Danger was a rare exception a few weeks ago so a good score is still on the cards. Prediction – 125

Patrick Dangerfield

Last 3: 106, 163, 146 (138 avg)

Last 3 against Sydney: 130, 104, 94 (109 avg)

Last 3 at SCG: 104, 73, 122 (100 avg)

That was a very disappointing 106 from Danger against a Hawthorn team he usually smashes. He did well in the last match against the Swans but he’s typically less effective in Sydney. Prediction – 115

LaHug’s POD

Elliot Yeo

Last 3: 114, 116, 76 (102 avg)

Last 3 against North: 128, 139, 102 (123 avg)

Last 3 at Perth: 116, 76, 142 (111 avg)

114 with a hard tag? Yeo is such an underrated player in fantasy circles and should be a target if you haven’t finished your mids yet. He likes to play North and they’re not really tagging this year so it should be good. Potential – 135
