The highest scoring player in fantasy football has been withdrawn from Round 6 due to hamstring tightness.
Gary Ablett jnr has been omitted from Geelong’s side to take on Richmond, replaced in the squad of 25 by Nathan Djerrkura. I don’t need to tell you all how big that news is, especially in Supercoach where he’s the lock in captain for the majority of teams.
On the bright side, Mitchell Duncan is more likely to survive the cut after this development.
Let me know in the comments who your replacement captain will be, if you have him. Is it Jimmy Bartel, who won’t have Ablett or Joel Corey in support for the first time in yonks? Do you have Dane Swan as well, or is your #2 midfielder a less-than-reliable conveyance like Joel Selwood or Bryce Gibbs? Would you venture beyond the midfielders into the forwards, even after the Nick Riewoldt disaster of a couple of rounds ago? How about Corey Enright or Brendon Goddard? Or even Michael Barlow in the derby?
