THE USUAL SUSPECTS
I've stuck with my vanilla captain Dangerfield for the first two rounds and he hasn't let me down.
Though, his average versus the Demons is a little worrying - the great man is a jet, and i'm sure he will still be good for a 110+ score this week. He got knocked around against the Roos last week and still cranked out a 139. Will the Demons try similar tactics? Possibly. Blokes like Lewis and Viney will no doubt have instructions to tackle to hurt - but Danger is a bull, he'll cop it and move on.
In saying this...If I had Rocky, Zerrett or Titchell this week however, I would be captaining one of those three blokes. Their averages above against this week's opposition are crazy good, plus they are all in hot form - Titchell could very well go 150+ this week and I can say the same for Merrett.
For my own squad, I also have Pendles to think about who has a great average against the Swans of 112.2, plus the other one I will have a think about is Beama against the Saints as he is looking in great form over the first two rounds and may be due for a 120+ this week with a handy average against the Saints. Friday night captains do scare me however - Pendles.
The Tragic's TOP 5 for Round 3 is...
1. Tom Mitchell
2. Zach Merrett
3. Tom Rockliff
4. Patrick Dangerfield
5. Adam Treleor
