Please pledge funds to help fight cancer! Examples of ways you can help:
1.   Pledge an amount (e.g. $5) for every time LaHug nails the top captain of the round.
2.   Pledge an amount (e.g. $5) for every time LaHug’s POD cracks the 120 mark.
3.   Pledge an amount (e.g. $5) for every time LaHug gets egg on his face and his number 1 scores under 100.
4.   Make a once off donation.

Did you know that this is the 9th year I’ve done this? I’ll continue to help with a smile and free of charge but, if you want to thank me, please donate to my charity efforts! 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 and a speicial POD choice.

The facts & thoughts: 

Adam Treloar
Last 3: 129, 128, 124 (127 avg)
Last 3 against Hawthorn: 105, 98, 126 (110 avg)
Last 3 at MCG: 124, 74, 113 (104 avg)

A few good weeks in a row now for Treloar. He comes up against the Hawks this week who were happy for Shuey and Gaff to score well against them. Prediction – 125

Brodie Grundy
Last 3: 112, 168, 95 (125 avg)
Last 3 against Hawthorn: 84, 95, 119 (99 avg)
Last 3 at MCG: 95, 112, 152 (120 avg)

Hawthorn are another team that Grundy doesn’t like to score well against. His 112 last week was about as good as we could hope for and expect similar this week. Prediction – 110

Travis Boak
Last 3: 107, 121, 101 (110 avg)
Last 3 against Adelaide: 113, 78, 84 (92 avg)
Last 3 at AO: 107, 121, 110 (113 avg)

Nobody’s numbers are really standing out leading into this week’s Showdown. Boak’s been good this year and he could step up bigger for a marquee match. Prediction – 120

Jack Macrae
Last 3: 135, 180, 140 (152 avg)
Last 3 against Geelong: 109, 80, 70 (86 avg)
Last 3 at Docklands: 180, 140, 77 (132 avg)

Macrae’s last few weeks have been awesome. He’s well and truly back to the standards we expected after last year. The Cats are a tricky team to score against but I like Macrae at Marvel. Prediction – 130

Mitch Duncan
Last 3: 99, 116, 144 (120 avg)
Last 3 against Bulldogs: 125, 111, 169 (135 avg)
Last 3 at Docklands: 142, 111, 117 (123 avg)

Loves to play the Dogs and did score that 144 a few weeks back. Duncan has fallen out of people’s captain calculations but he should be a top option this week. Prediction – 130

Nat Fyfe
Last 3: 133, 88, 104 (108 avg)
Last 3 against West Coast: 101, 109, 64 (91 avg)
Last 3 at Perth: 133, 104, 120 (119 avg)

Hutchings might be a concern this week but Fyfe was tagged against the Blues and it didn’t slow him. He’s been excellent at home this season and that’s why he’s a good option this week. Prediction – 120

Andrew Gaff
Last 3: 119, 92, 91 (101 avg)
Last 3 against Fremantle: 134, 109, 120 (121 avg)
Last 3 at Perth: 92, 123, 126 (114 avg)

Gaff at home is a great call. Usually good in the Derby and should be great option again this week. Prediction – 125

Josh Kelly
Last 3: 120, 148, 128 (132 avg)
Last 3 against Brisbane: 138, 125, 96 (120 avg)
Last 3 at Showgrounds: 140, 120, 100 (120 avg)

Kelly is usually great against the Lions and his recent form should continue. Best mid in fantasy. Prediction – 135

LAHUG’S POD!

Dustin Martin
Last 3: 128, 140, 102 (123 avg)
Last 3 against Gold Coast: 85, 112, 137 (111 avg)
Last 3 at Metricon: 85, 112, 100 (99 avg)

I’m very tempted to go with Dusty against the Suns this week. He’s in some pretty handy form and mids have been very good against the Suns this year. Most others won’t be doing it so , if you need a sneaky POD, Dusty’s your man. Potential – 140

The verdict: 
1.   Josh Kelly (135)
2.   Mitch Duncan (130)
3.   Jack Macrae (130)
4.   Andrew Gaff (125)
5.   Adam Treloar (125)
