My perfect streak of captaining my highest scoring player of the round was broken by Docherty last week, as outstripped Neale's 147 with a gargantuan 185. This week is the hardest I've had to think about leadership; with about 3 VC and 5 C options popping up for me.
L Neale:
Avg VS Port since 2015: 120.38 from 8 (low of 87 and a high of 177, 3/8 below 100, 3/8 120+)
Last 3 VS Port: 134.33 from 3 (low of 108 and a high of 177, 1/3 120+)
2019 Gabba Avg: 117.18 from 11 (3/11 below 100, 4/11 120+)
2019 Gabba Wins Avg: 119.8 from 10 (2/10 below 100, 4/10 120+)
2019 Gabba Losses Avg: 91 from 1
2020 Gabba Avg: 161.33 from 3 (3/3 120+)
2020 Gabba Wins Avg: 161.33 from 3 (3/3 120+)
2019 Wins Avg: 121.75 from 16 (3/16 below 100, 8/16 120+)
2019 Losses Avg: 120 from 6 (2/6 below 100, 2/6 120+)
2020 Wins Avg: 161.33 from 3 (3/3 120+)
2020 Losses Avg: 157 from 1

Now that the eagles game has been moved, I should have a donut to do Grundy into Neale. If Williams however does play, it'll prob be Cripps into Grundy/Neale with Cameron as the donut.
B Grundy:

Last 3 VS Ess: 148.67 from 3 (low of 134 and a high of 157, 2/3 150+)
2019 MCG Avg: 125.93 from 14 (3/14 below 100, 10/14 120+)
2019 MCG Wins Avg: 129.33 from 9 (2/9 below 100, 7/9 120+)
2019 MCG Losses Avg: 119.8 from 5 (1/5 below 100, 3/5 120+)
2020 MCG Avg: 109 from 2 (0/2 below 100, 0/2 120+)
2020 MCG Wins Avg: 103 from 1
2019 Wins Avg: 131.4 from 15 (2/15 below 100, 11/15 120+)
2019 Losses Avg: 127 from 7 (1/7 below 100, 5/7 120+)
2020 Wins Avg: 141 from 2 (1/2 120+)
2020 Losses Avg: 135 from 1

Grundy to Bont if I do my current proposed trades.

Based on my current team, maybe Docherty VC and Rowell C (who has been the only decent captain I have chosen all season so far).

(It's most likely that first option).

2019 Marvel Avg: 117.58 from 12 (3/12 below 100, 5/12 120+)
2019 Marvel Wins Avg: 126.57 from 7 (2/7 below 100, 4/7 120+)
2019 Marvel Losses Avg: 105 from 5 (1/5 below 100, 1/5 120+)
2020 Marvel Avg: 89 from 3 (3/3 below 100)

Hmmm, Dangerfield?

..........Scott confirmed he'll go with a "hard tag" on Rowell, but he's not certain that will stop the strong-bodied midfielder..........

That should get Danger fired up!
Over the years, I feel like Danger lets me down on the exact days I figure he will prosper. Perhaps that's just my general lack of faith in anyone I select...

Also, I assume people saw the hit to the head he took last week. When he was on the bench after getting his jaw checked out, he did not look so clear-headed and focused. Commentators mentioned it several times as he was preparing to go back on the field. Once he was back on, he played well, which was amazing, but... this going to affect him for a couple of weeks or is he too much of a pro. He, Mitchel, Oliver all on my list to bring in this week. Thinking of Oliver (and Gawn) at this stage. Wouild give me VC Neale, and C Gawn options depending on team selections. Might need to keep Fyfe for the donut VC/C option actually...

Some good points here. The balance for me would be that (1) there is a view (potentially with some merit) that Danger overplays injuries and then comes back and kills it to be a hero, but also (2) concussion is a serious issue, and my opinion based on ex player interviews I’ve seen is that it can significantly affect players for at least a week afterwards (I traded Whitfield in DT in part for this reason - not that he played poorly in the end).

Be surprised if Geary could put the tag back on his bread, let alone the best back flanker in the league.
Yeh who knows but he done a decent job on Johannisen till he got injured. Could be one of those old fashion niggle taggers.
He has the running power to go with the best.
