O Captain! My Captain!

Oh Captain, My Captain! – Round 22

As the Giants have returned to form, so has this man. The smooth mover has put up scores of 127 and 132 in the past two weeks and has shown that speculation over his playing future will have little influence of his playing form. This week he takes on the Eagles at a venue where he has a fantasy-friendly history – Spotless Stadium. When the two sides faced off earlier in the year, Kelly was superb with 29 touches and a goal to help his side over the line in a close one, and he looks set to repeat the dosage this week.


Dangerfield continued his sublime 2017 with yet another score in excess of 140 against the Tigers last week. Since Round 8, the superstar has only failed to reach 140 once – an absolutely unbelievable achievement. This week he faces a wounded-looking Collingwood outfit who have the wood over the Cats (and Danger) in recent times. Back in Round 6, the Pies thrashed Geelong and kept the reigning Brownlow medallist to a very subdued 65 SuperCoach points. Despite this recent history, you’d be a brave coach to bet against him, especially with no Levi Greenwood to worry about.


Although he was tagged by Trent Dumont last week, Mitchell continues to rack up ridiculous numbers on a weekly basis, with another 35-disposal effort added to his mammoth streak. Somewhat surprisingly, the Hawks are scheduled to play their first game for the year at Etihad this week, against the Brendon Bolton led Carlton outfit. It’s difficult to imagine the former Swan not playing well as he looks set to deliver us yet another excellent score.

It’s quite amazing how this guy gets injured so often, but when he is on the park, still has an elite output. Another BOG performance in the Q-Clash saw him net 138 SuperCoach points – his second highest for the year. This week he travels to the ‘G to take on the Demons, but it isn’t a venue which seems to faze him, as he scored 127 on the same ground against his former side earlier this year.


After a midseason sternum problem, Nat Fyfe has allayed concerns that he would never get back to his best. 5 scores of 110+ is formidable, but his 115 point game last week was particularly impressive, as it came in a 100-point loss for his side. There is no doubt that Fyfe is back, and he looks like he will churn out a similar output as he did circa 2015.


A weak Fremantle outfit awaits Martin at Domain Stadium, and it’s difficult to think that Dusty will have anything but three Brownlow votes on his mind. The raging hot-favourite for the Charlie looks as if he has validated himself as an ultra-consistent performer at AFL level, having only failed to pass the three-figure barrier once since Round 7. This game has Dustin Martin written all over it. Expect a big stat line come Sunday.
