Title: Round 5 Captain
Post by: SilverLion on April 15, 2018, 07:56:29 PM
This round is going to be interesting so I'm getting in early with this thread. Dangerfield is under performing, Mitchell will get the Jacobs tag which removes 2 of the main options.

Think I will be going Fyfe into Martin at this stage.

Took 3 goes to make the poll correctly lol

Post by: Torpedo10 on April 15, 2018, 08:03:17 PM
Danger into Dusty.

Danger will go 150+ this week, I can feel it. He has been awesome in spurts these last three weeks, just needs to play a full game and he'll be massive.

Not sure how the loopholing's going to work for me when Olango and Keeffe play on Saturday arvo, so might go Laird into Fyfe, feel like Fyfe will go big this week.
Title: Re: Round 5 Captain
Post by: PowerBug on April 15, 2018, 08:09:51 PM
Olango, Barry, Murphy, Venables, Ryan, ZGL, Keefe all don't work as VC options for those wanting to pick Danger or Fyfe as VC. So other than Lavendar who was picked at R3 by a few, who are people using as the loophole?

Exactly, who is actually going to be able to use the loophole?
Tempted to either back Dusty straight out, or go leftfield and go JOM vs Norf if Titch is tagged again. Pretty sure his score today was influenced by Jones tagging Titch and he had to step up.
Title: Re: Round 5 Captain
Post by: jbjimmyjb on April 15, 2018, 08:28:14 PM
I'm going Coniglio into Dustin.
GWS plays early Saturday, so loophole options are still available, and the GWS mids should tear St Kilda apart.
Plus Coniglio has pumped out 129, 120, 124, 116 so far, he is hitting his prime. Could be time for a 140+.
Title: Re: Round 5 Captain
Post by: Torpedo10 on April 15, 2018, 08:28:56 PM
Cripps works for those with Barry, so considering our lack of other looping options he might be the one to take Dusty into.
Title: Re: Round 5 Captain

Title: Re: Round 5 Captain
Post by: RaisyDaisy on April 16, 2018, 11:03:20 AM
Not many options this weeek

Probably Conigs/Kelly for VC (Not sure Laird will go huge in Sydney) and then it's either Dusty/Oliver/Fyfe for C
Title: Re: Round 5 Captain
Post by: Rowdy26 on April 16, 2018, 11:05:35 AM
Don't think I have an option for a VC this week given my donut (Cameron) is playing on Friday night. Will back Dusty straight out against the Dees but Fyfe is also tempting.
Title: Re: Round 5 Captain
Post by: HappyDEZ on April 16, 2018, 01:41:39 PM
Laird into Mitchell. Will need to get the Hulk symbol against Ben Jacobs. I don't have Danger & even if I did I could not captain him against my own mob. I don't have Dusty either. So Mitchell it is. Fyfe maybe if I change my mind. What I really need is Josh Kelly playing. After already trading out Mcrouch I had to hold Kelly.

Post by: quinny88 on April 17, 2018, 12:22:41 AM
Laird into Dusty. Would usually take anything over 125 for the loophole but with the form Dusty is in I would want to see 130+ minimum from Laird to actually take it
Title: Re: Round 5 Captain
Post by: enzedder on April 17, 2018, 09:53:31 AM
Laird into Dusty is the most likely for me.
Otherwise have Coniglio and J Kelly as VC options. Dusty will definitely be my C if the VC fails.

Title: Re: Round 5 Captain

Early Laird or Buddy into Dusty. Leaning Buddy at this stage, think he is more likely to go big at the SCG than Laird.

He said Robertson was tagging him so he moved forward to shake it. Reckon he'll go back to his usual 70/30ish Mid/Fwd split.
Title: Re: Round 5 Captain
Post by: zoomba23 on April 18, 2018, 07:04:49 PM
Don't know if Laird at the SCG is the right VC option. Will still get a bit of it, but I'd be expecting 105-110 at most. Reckon Cogs against the Saints might be the go, but who bloody knows. Loop options are stuffed this round. All I know is, Clarrie has the C locked in. Will tear the Tiges a new one.
Title: Re: Round 5 Captain
Post by: Mongoose528 on April 18, 2018, 07:10:51 PM
Fyfe into Oliver.
Title: Re: Round 5 Captain
Post by: desafinado on April 18, 2018, 11:04:29 PM

Laird may get tagged by Hewitt , and Jacobs will definitely blanket Mitchell. So these two guys are out of the question for me.

Post by: Marty101 on April 18, 2018, 11:18:13 PM
Surprised there's not more talk around Bud this week for VC given the limited looping options. Biggest ceiling by far which is what you want from your VC. If he spuds it thats what the C is for.

That's probably cos not many have him. If I did he'd be my VC for sure.

My options are really limited this week with the Eagles playing earlier in the round.

Thinking Laird into Dusty though, think I'd take a 130 from Laird.

Well with Kelly likely out that only leaves me with Buddy, Heeney and Laird

I'm not sure I'll bring in Conigs this week, and I reckon he could get tagged too. Steele did a pretty good job following Jelwood last week

Reckon I'll go Buddy or Heeney, but will most likely need to go with the C and that's between Dusty and Oliver

He's been amazing but doesn't go huge against the Crows in seasons past. I'm happy to just own him and get one lot of his score :)

Don't trust Tmitch vs Jacobs and feel like Dusty will be tagged by Jones/Vince and I don't want to rely on him kicking 6 again if he stays fwd

How are people loopholing anyone considering most people with donuts would either have Keefe/Olango who play the 2nd and 3rd games? I can literally only go Laird on the Friday night as my VC. Captain options would be Titch/Fyfe/Oliver or even Maxy Gawn who should eat Nankervis.

Thinking Laird into Oliver though.

Yeah I've got Olango.

Can only go Laird, Heeney, Coniglio, Savage or Billings VC.

Not a good week for most given WC's early game.

Just holding at the moment as looking at Suns in suspect Holman could make way and with other issues may hold him till next week opening up a few more options.
Fyfe into Dusty
Mitchell into Dusty should have at least half to 3.4 game before Brisbane game to judge.
If Holman is named then
Laird/Coniglio/Buddy into Dusty. Think Dusty has more chance of shaking Vince tag than Mitchell has of Jacobs tag.
Famous last words. Decision made tomorrow night,

Even if Holman is dropped, wouldn't be using him as a loophole as there is always the chance he could be a late in. Not worth the risk imo.

Wouldn't it be better to take the risk? I doubt Conigs/Laird etc. are going to blow away anything that Dusty or Titch score.

Yeah that's the other way of looking at it.

Safer to VC someone prior to Olango though, peace of mind that at least if they go 120+ you can safely lock in the points.

I reckon Sydney will pump the Crows.
No Sloane,Crouch bros. or Betts.
I'd be having a punt on Buddy.

Title: Re: Round 5 Captain
Post by: Sonnydark on April 20, 2018, 06:37:31 PM
Naitanui into Dusty (Barry).

I could go Franklin or Cripps, but figure this is the week to take a chance on a differentiator, as whatever I do I'm probably gonna end up going with Dusty. No Kreuz & tapping against Phillips, and resting forward against a Dochertly-less & Marchbank-less Jones and Weitering set-up, I don't know... just feels like the go.

Title: Re: Round 5 Captain

I don't think Laird is an option.

For me, it needs to be someone who's capable of going BANG!

My general-rule-of-thumb is I reject a VC score of 129 or below, and take anything 135+ (130 - 134 is the grey area depeding on the C's fixture).

Laird has scored: 137 / 120 / 105 / 129

So although consistent, my criteria would only bank the 137... and even that's marginal.

This week everyone's gonna end up going Dusty anyway. That being the case, don't go with the reliable and consistent... go with the gamble.

In my team, much rather Franklin or Cripps... or... Naitanui!!

In my team, much rather Franklin or Cripps... or... Naitanui!!

Unfortunately I can’t vc danger so I’m leaning towards Parker or buddy. Will be last minute... Adelaide depleted mids makes Parker a real good candidate, but the scg is buddys playground ARGHHHHH

Captained Dangerfield today. Was at the game just had my eyes on him the entire time. To score 134 playing at Full Forward with one 4 minute midfield stint a quarter was mighty impressive.

Also means I won't be captaining him in the near future because I want to see midfield minutes, so Fyfe (Who I assume was in the mids) will likely be my preferred option moving forward.

Nah didn't go that in depth with it all mate.

Will have to check stuff like that for next time.

I generally just have a look at who the popular choices are for the week and then base my decision on that.

I had Olango as my loophole and Barry.

Went Cogs as VC but would have gone Fyfe instead if I had a later loophole.

Pretty annoyed and flowered off but I have avoided all the injuries and suspensions bar Josh Kelly so I guess I have 1st world problems atm. LOL!  ;D
