Average versus GWS 130 (Last three 163, 196, 77)
Although Dangerfield hasn’t averaged 130+ so far, and has already dropped $110,000, it hasn’t stopped 22 per cent of teams going with the number one SuperCoach scorer in the game. He’s a must-pick for the loophole this round, has great history against the Giants and he won’t go and have back to back double-figure games (that hasn’t happened since early 2014)
Average versus Geelong 78 (88, 66, 78)
I’ve heard a lot of people go with Coniglio as a loophole option in recent weeks, and why not after a stellar start to his best season yet. I do think there are better options out there for round seven, however if you don’t have several options than Coniglio offers a great point of difference.
Average versus Essendon 96 (116, 86, 87)
Mitchell got back to his scoring ways last week against the Saints with 126, collecting 45 disposals on his journey – that’s his fourth 40+ tally for the season. Has only played the Bombers a total of three times, so I wouldn’t be too invested in his past scores. Except Mitchell to be a popular pick for the Captain or the Vice-Captain this round.
Average versus Adelaide 109 (126, 102, 99)
Cripps followed up his mammoth 151 against the Eagles with 143 last Friday Night against the Bulldogs – officially making himself a genuine selection in this article each week. The young bull continues to stand up in tough times at Princess Park, expect him to dominate the clearances and contested possessions again this week.
Average versus Fremantle 99 (130, 105, 133)
Two ‘disappointing’ weeks for our reigning Brownlow medalist, but we all know champions don’t stay down for too long, expect a lift from Martin this week. He returns to the MCG yet again, where the Tigers are five from five in season 2018. Martin only went at 55% last week, so his 88 could’ve been a lot more damaging. May be better options this week if you have the star-power.
Average versus Richmond 105 (142, 99, 128)
It’s great seeing the Dockers skipper get consistent form in, because we all know how great he can be once he gets going. Fyfe hasn’t dropped below 100 since round one, and faces a tough task in the top of the ladder Tigers this week. Produced 142 against Richmond last year, there’s every chance he’ll do it again. Scoring 160 in round three and 151 in round five, he’s always going to be a viable option each week.
Average versus St Kilda 105 (56, 128, 96)
Gawn now leads the league in SuperCoach points after back to back scores of 150+. Continues to dominate any ruck-man that comes in his way, and has Tom Hickey standing before him this week. If your vice-captain fails, I suggest Gawn as my hot pick for this week, he’s returned to his 2016 form where he took the league by storm and averaged 118 across the season – a no-brainer.
