BANG! I’m back after a poor round 3. It’s important that we keep an eye on these taggers, an area I cover in the video. Games are spread out starting at 4:20pm Friday and it’s more important than ever ti make sure your VC and Captain is set with a plan up your sleeve.

Key StatsCal’s Comments
1. Jack Steele

@ Marvel
SAT 1:45pm
Coming off 130, Jack is back and had 136 on Suns last yearThe Suns are the #2 easiest at the moment for MIDs and in recent weeks, Hewett (115), Taranto (126), Green (114) and Cogs (114) all cashed in.
2. Touk Miller

@ Marvel
SAT 1:45pm
No tag coming this week after scores of 83 and 68.Touk scored 119 on the Saints last year and more importantly he will run free here. Loves Marvel, a place he averaged 130 at last season.
3. Josh Dunkley

@ Marvel
FRI 4:20pm
129, 132 and 112 is some hot form. Great VC option too.Dunkley scored 110 on the Roos last year and doesn't need CBAs to fill his stats. Reliable and plays nice and early as MY... VC option.
4. Ben Keays

@ Adelaide
SAT 4:35pm
BANG! 3x130+ scores in his first four games. Elite and unique.Keays averaged 108 last year and has started the season on fire. He had 129 on the Tigers last year and is the Crows main CBA with 26 last week.
5. Max Gawn

SAT 7:25pm
140 last week and he is finally marking the ball. WIN WIN.Rucks v Flynn have scored 85 (Nank) and 98 (Hickey) this year. He should sit higher on the list but he has only had one good game.
6. Andrew Brayshaw

@ Marvel
SUN 4:40pm
Shook a tough tagger and still managed 110 last week.Averaging 127, Brayshaw is on fire and only meets the Bombers who Keays (134) and Laird (123) dominated last week.
7. Lachie Neale

THURS 7:35pm
Great VC option coming off tagged games of 98 and 86.Pies don't tag and last time they played Neale had 120 and 103 in his last two games against them. Loves playing at home and could be massive.
8. Jack Macrae

@ Marvel
FRI 4:20pm
Coming off 130 and had the most CBAs (19) of the Bulldog MIDs.Sitting at 8 appears low for Macrae. Last year he only scored 94 and 103 on the Roos and at the end of the day... Bevo is too random but a great VC option.
9. Jarryd Lyons

THURS 7:35pm
139 and 142 on the Pies last year. This match-up is juicy as.Lyons is warming up with scores of 100 and 122 in his last two games and should find his feet again with this match-up.
10. Mitch Duncan

SUN 3:20pm
130 last year and Hawks are #1 easiest by a mile. Feast-time coming.Duncan only had 88 last week but did take 10 marks. Hawks have given up 15x100+ scores and 7x120+ to MIDs this year alone. Watch-out!

    ***FLAG*** Touk scored 133 and 142 on the SWANS last year not the Saints, he dropped 119 in his last outing with them though. RRRR….use both eyes next time!

    s Sicily really important to get right now?
    Because my backline is:
    Hall, Whitfield, Stewart, Hewett, NOD and Stein
    Thinking about Hall to sicily and Stein to Rioli
    Or should I go Stewart to Sicily and upgrade Josh Kelly to Jack Steele in the midfield?

        No way. Wouldn’t even have the fossil in my team. Made that mistake once.. and only once. Don’t believe the hype.

    should we take Neale’s 115 or put faith in Dunkley

    • Pure Grunt

      April 14, 2022 at 11:54 pm

      I looped him too. Says on app he had 119.
      Dunkley should go better IF a Cripps thing doesn’t happen.
      Think I will take the loop.

    Keep Neales 119 as a loophole or does Steele go better against the suns?

    Do I accept VC Smith’s 147, or do I risk the C on …? Feeling a bit better this week than the last 2 when I really felt like packing it up for 2022.
