AFL Fantasy Captains

Each week I will tell you some statistics on a player’s last 3 games, their last 3 against this week’s opponent, and their last 3 at this ground. I will also do a quick overview on my thoughts and have a guess at their score for this week. From all this, I’ll give you my top 5 captain choices for the week.

Lance Franklin
Last 3: 51, 112, 55 (73 avg)
Last 3 against Carlton: 171, 69, 98 (113 avg)
Last 3 at SCG: 112, 55, 102 (90 avg)

I know he disappointed last week but gee it’s hard to see Buddy not kicking a bag against the Blues. Prediction – 125

Patrick Cripps
Last 3: 92, 140, 93 (108 avg)
Last 3 against Sydney: 117, 140, 86 (114 avg)
Last 3 at SCG: 140, 83 (112 avg)

92 with a niggle isn’t too bad and he’s gone well against the Swans in the past. The problem with Cripps is that he falls short of 100 a lot. The ceiling is tempting though. Prediction – 110

Jack Macrae
Last 3: 113, 144, 155 (137 avg)
Last 3 against Melbourne: 84, 106, 90 (93 avg)
Last 3 at Etihad: 113, 155, 145 (138 avg)

113 is disappointing for Macrae and that’s why you have to lock him in again this week. That’s an incredible floor. Prediction – 135

Tom Mitchell
Last 3: 135, 149, 58 (114 avg)
Last 3 against Port: 118, 139, 105 (121 avg)
Last 3 at Launceston: 147, 118, 143 (136 avg)

Mitchell loves playing the Power and is back in Tassie where the Hawks dominate. Looking like three good scores in a row. Prediction – 135

Patrick Dangerfield
Last 3: 117, 105, 106 (109 avg)
Last 3 against Gold Coast: 119, 129, 138 (129 avg)
Last 3 at Metricon: 119, 88, 116 (108 avg)

Danger is scoring well without getting the big scores of the past. Even though history says he’ll smash the Suns, it’s probably good and not great again. Prediction – 110

Zach Merrett
Last 3: 98, 108, 81 (96 avg)
Last 3 against Richmond: 101, 152, 115 (123 avg)
Last 3 at MCG: 108, 81, 64 (84 avg)

I’m not trusting Merrett this year with his up and down form but I want to this week. It’s Dreamtime and someone usually goes big. Merrett’s done it against the Tigers before. Prediction – 110

Dustin Martin
Last 3: 82, 73, 48 (68 avg)
Last 3 against Essendon: 133, 161, 123 (139 avg)
Last 3 at MCG: 82, 93, 101 (92 avg)

Dusty LOVES to play the Bombers but he’s also in the worst form I’ve seen since his rookie year. How gutsy are you? I’m still tempted. Prediction – 100

Andrew Gaff
Last 3: 154, 107, 86 (116 avg)
Last 3 against St Kilda: 92, 115, 125 (111 avg)
Last 3 at Perth: 107, 110, 120 (112 avg)

Embed from Getty Images

Gaff is really embracing this new inside role and his form is showing it. At Perth where he hasn’t scored below the 100 mark, he’s a safe pick. Prediction – 120

Dayne Zorko
Last 3: 110, 134, 115 (120 avg)
Last 3 against North: 116, 110, 82 (103 avg)
Last 3 at Etihad: 115, 57, 48 (73 avg)

Embed from Getty Images

Numbers look good, yeah? Ben Jacobs will shut down Zorko this week so his history is meaningless. Stay away. Prediction – 75

Brodie Grundy
Last 3: 124, 135, 128 (129 avg)
Last 3 against Fremantle: 103, 105, 88 (99 avg)
Last 3 at MCG: 128, 115, 110 (118 avg)

Embed from Getty Images

Grundy continues to kill it but Sandilands is not an easy opponent. Grundy’s so good around the ground that even losing a few of his hitout points shouldn’t hurt. Prediction – 125

Adam Treloar
Last 3: 130, 96, 113 (113 avg)
Last 3 against Fremantle: 117, 127, 127 (124 avg)
Last 3 at MCG: 113, 147, 122 (127 avg)

Embed from Getty Images

Treloar is doing very well after a slow start to the year and should smash Freo, a team he loves to play. Prediction – 130

Nat Fyfe
Last 3: 128, 97, 106 (110 avg)
Last 3 against Collingwood: 99, 110, 64 (91 avg)
Last 3 at MCG: 128, 75, 95 (99 avg)

Embed from Getty Images

Fyfe managed to score 128 despite attention from Jacobs. That shows he’s definitely back this year. Numbers against the Pies don’t exactly jump out though. Prediction – 115

Stephe Coniglio
Last 3: 123, 92, 111 (109 avg)
Last 3 against Adelaide: 134, 93, 58 (95 avg)
Last 3 at AO: 134, 106, 93 (111 avg)

Embed from Getty Images

Did well last time he played the Crows and looks like he’s returning to form. Cogs will likely do well again this week. Prediction – 110


LAHUG’S POD!

Gary Ablett
Last 3: 107, 47, 105 (86 avg)
Last 3 against Gold Coast: N/A
Last 3 at Metricon: 152, 127, 91 (123 avg)Embed from Getty Images

Ablett against his old side. Now that’s a POD you just have to take if you need a Hail Mary. Prediction – 130


Top 5

1.   Jack Macrae (135)
2.   Tom Mitchell (135)
3.   Adam Treloar (130)
4.   Brodie Grundy (125)
