Calvin’s Captains – Rd. 22

Two weeks to go and Calvin has been working overtime. Check out his detailed pciks!

With two weeks to go things are really heating up and this week I have gone on a game by game break-down of all the players you could be considering. Make sure you check out all the content and hit me up @CalvinDT if you have any questions or suggestions/feedback (that I will ignore) – GOOD LUCK LEGENDS… especially those still alive in finals

Key StatsCal’s Comments
1. Rory Laird

@ Adelaide
SAT 2:10pm
Has hit 120+ in hiis last nine gamesNorth are the 4th easiest team for MIDs this year and against them in the past Laird hasn't struggled with 140, 90, 101, 115 and 138. There is no reason why his run won't continue this week.
2. Callum Mills

SUN 3:20pm
Collingwood #1 easy for MIDs this yearOliver (139) and Petracca (120) did as we expected last week against the Pies and Mills should be fine as well. His form isn't horrible either with 89, 116, 118, 132 and 148 coming in his last five. He had 111 against these guys last year.
3. Jack Steele

@ Marvel
FRI 7:50pm
138 against the Lions last year.Last week I said... "Geelong in Geelong is tough" so we can forgive him for his 92, the first time under 100 in his last seven. Back the man back in and he could be a great VC option on Friday night.
4. Andrew Brayshaw

@ Optus
SAT 7:45pm
109 and 137 in his last two games.Could cop attention from O'Neil but should be fine. He scored 95 against the Eagles in round three and in recent weeks, Laird (127), Touk (122), Steele (154) and Crouch (147) all scored with ease.
5. Sam Docherty

SAT 7:25pm
Melbourne #1 easiest for DEFs.Doch loves playing the Demons with previous scores of 106, 110, 152, 101, 108 and 106. He rips these guys and has form on his side with 101, 119 and 109. Double figure marks coming.
6. Clayton Oliver

SAT 7:25pm
139 last week... he's back alright.110, 125 and 116 are Oliver's last scores against the Blues who have been tricky to score against this year but they are depleted. Neale (117), Bailey (108) and McCluggage (105) score well last week though.
7. Zach Merrett

@ Marvel
SUN 4:40pm
Before his 55 last week, he was averaging 136 in last 5No tag here... unless Drew pops his head up. Port are the #2 hardest for MIDs this year, but last week Richmond had four tons. Zach loves playing the Power and has averaged 115 against them over his 10 games.
8. Luke Parker

SUN 3:20pm
115, 118 and 114 in his last threeMatch-up is everything here and Parker should be busy again. He gets bulk CBAs and even though he only had 84 on them last year, he is smoking at the moment and this match-up is super-juicy.
9. Max Gawn

SAT 7:25pm
152... 87 and 133 in his last threeOscar Mc scored 105 against the Blues last week and Max even scored 105 against them in 2021. VC option only if you can hold out that long.
10. Rowan Marshall

@ Marvel
FRI 7:50pm
Since rucking solo... he has a 130 averageWitts scored 121 against the Lions in round 19, but with that said, they are tough to score against ranking #5 hardest for the year. 130 average as the solo guys is impressive.

      No, but this helps toss the coin as to who to bring in

        Yes, but judging by the lack of comments on this site in the last few weeks, not many people are still engaged.

          It seemed to tail off a fair few weeks before finals.

            Meanwhile I dunno how I’ll fill my time and late night shifts in 2 weeks!

              I’m going to give NFL fantasy a go this year.
              Seems quite hectic though..

                EPL started last week. I’m in Fantasy and Dream Team. A League is easy, doesn’t take much time. Give NFL a go. I was in NFL Dream Team last year, don’t really follow the game but enjoyed the challenge of so many players. NBL RDT is good as well. Good to get leagues together with ppl on here

              I fill the void by playing EPL Fantasy and Sportsdeck EPL. Keeps me sane during the months of no AFL.

          • Bill

            August 11, 2022 at 7:28 pm

            When does the A League fantasy start?
            It’s a slight distraction.

            EPL is too late at night for me, and impossible to pick.

              A-league season starts 7th of October

                August 11, 2022 at 11:18 pm

                Cheers, Dan. I’ll look into it.

    VC Laird but can’t decide C on Oliver or Mills..

    • Bill

      August 11, 2022 at 7:25 pm

      I’d go Oliver out of those two.
