Round four starts tonight, and with it, the rolling lockout in SuperCoach. The correct selection of a captain can really set up a strong week for your side.
Below are the top five captaincy options for this weekend of football.
Zach Merrett ($597,300)
Zach Merrett has been the Bombers most prolific ball winner so far this season, however that is yet to translate to big scores. His history against the Swans is quite good, with a two-game average of 144 against Sydney.
With the Bombers battling injuries in the midfield, expect Merrett’s magnet glued firmly in the centre square.
Travis Boak ($607,000)
Travis Boak has started the season in red-hot form this year, with the former Power captain averaging 128 and being the fifth highest scorer this season. He’s coming up against Richmond, who he averages 131.5 in his last two against. He also averaged 114.83 last season at Adelaide Oval, where Port will clash with Richmond on Friday night.

Taylor Walker ($406,100)
Taylor Walker has had the resurgence of the decade, with the former Crows captain going from kicking 15 goals and almost retiring in 2020, to kicking 17 goals in three games and being SuperCoach’s top scorer through the opening rounds. Tex is coming up against North Melbourne, who just conceded 10 goals to Josh Bruce. Expect a big bag from the Crow.
Jack Macrae ($642,000)
Jack Macrae has started the year strong, averaging 121 through three weeks. The Bulldogs are playing Brisbane at Mars Stadium. His last three scores against the Lions are 183, 135 and 155, and his last game at Mars Stadium was against Gold Coast in 2019, where he scored 189.
Max Gawn ($730,200)
Max Gawn has great form over Geelong, who historically hasn’t had a top-tier ruck option. The Melbourne captain averages 132 against the Cats over his last three, which just eclipses his season average of 131.
To take your Vice Captain’s score in a round, simply put a non-playing player on your field and place the captaincy on him – your VC score will be doubled and emergency brought on for the non-playing player. Just make sure your captain isn’t the medical sub!
