LaHug’s Captains 2019 – Round 4

0

I don’t think you were wrong if you took Danger or went with Macrae last week. If you passed on Danger to take Fyfe though… If you passed on Danger to take Neale though!!! Prime example of risks paying off and backfiring in the same week. Hopefully my advice below will be enough for you to not need to gamble.

VC Options – Round 4

Jake Lloyd

Last 3: 130, 124, 131 (128 avg)

Last 3 against Melbourne: 117, 88, 63 (89 avg)

Last 3 at SCG: 124, 149, 114 (129 avg)

If you’re someone that loves a Thursday VC, Lloyd should safely get you a 130 just based on the fact that he keeps scoring right around that mark. Prediction – 130

Brodie Grundy

Last 3: 132, 137, 81 (117 avg)

Last 3 against Bulldogs: 152, 82, 107 (114 avg)

Last 3 at MCG: 132, 137, 81 (117 avg)

Grundy backed it up last week and showed that Round 1 was an exception. I can’t see him doing anything short of dominating the Bulldogs ruck division this week. Yet to see if rucks can have a huge ceiling this year though. Prediction – 135

Jack Macrae

Last 3: 139, 127, 132 (133 avg)

Last 3 against Collingwood: 102, 92, 104 (99 avg)

Last 3 at MCG: 127, 163, 131 (140 avg)

It’s a shame Macrae and Grundy play in the same game so we can only use one of them. Collingwood are tough to score on this year but Macrae is so so good at the MCG. I think Grundy will be the better though. Prediction – 130

Patrick Dangerfield

Last 3: 128, 154, 97 (126 avg)

Last 3 against GWS: 108, 163, 196 (156 avg)

Last 3 at Kardinia: 154, 187, 94 (145 avg)

Danger was good last week but left us with an awkward VC score. His ceiling against the Giants is huge, as is his record at the Cattery. He’s my pick of the bunch. Prediction – 140

Lachie Whitfield

Last 3: 152, 123, 105 (127 avg)

Last 3 against Geelong: 82, 66, 130 (93 avg)

Last 3 at Kardinia: 82, 66, 109 (86 avg)

Whitfield’s a bit of a unique option but I had to mention him after a huge display on the weekend. I don’t think the Cats will give him the freedom that the Tigers gave him but he could be a unique VC. Prediction – 120

Lachie Neale

Last 3: 177, 140, 127 (148 avg)

Last 3 against Essendon: 119, 96, 93 (103 avg)

Last 3 at MCG: 104, 123, 129 (119 avg)

Like Whitfield and Lloyd, you’d hate to have not started Neale. 148 average over the opening rounds and I don’t know why he’d slow down against the Bombers. Prediction – 140

Captain Options – Round 4

Matt Crouch

Last 3: 119, 96, 138 (118 avg)

Last 3 against North: 131, 97, 144 (124 avg)

Last 3 at Docklands: 88, 105, 139 (111 avg)

I’m only listing two C options this week because all of the players before Saturday night are better than anyone after (excluding the next guy). Crouch is a respectable C option if your VC flops and you don’t have the next guy, but don’t expect anything too huge. Prediction – 125

Patrick Cripps

Last 3: 157, 116, 126 (133 avg)

Last 3 against Gold Coast: 173, 115, 114 (134 avg)

Last 3 at Metricon: 173, 114, 83 (123 avg)

Easily the best option if your VC flops. Cripps scored 173 last time he played the Suns, scored 157 last week, and will dominate! Like I said last week, I’m not taking anything less than the 130 mark (although I considered Danger’s 128 last week pretty acceptable). Prediction – 150

LaHug’s POD

Travis Boak

Last 3: 136, 123, 119 (126 avg)

Last 3 against Richmond: 74, 84, 145 (101 avg)

Last 3 at AO: 123, 89, 71 (94 avg)

Congrats if you started this guy and didn’t turn him into Greene last minute to get cash for an extra mid… (I hate this season.) Boak scored massively against the Tigers before he became a forward and may well do so again now that he’s back in the mids. The Tigers are missing their two best mids this week so more points for the Power boys. You can VC Boak and still have time to take Cripps if it fails. Potential – 145
