Pete looks inside the numbers that matter for Fantasy coaches.
Just add water
Conditions were ideal at the GABBA for Brisbane & Sydney players that loved to tackle in wet conditions, it was a scoring fest as 11 players eclipsed 100pts or more (6 Players 120+) in amongst the combined 355 Contested Possessions & 197 Tackles.
Who wants a 100pt game?
A whopping 12 Geelong players scored 100pts or more against Gold Coast on Saturday Night, Tom Hawkins enjoyed little resistance from a Suns defence kicking 4 goals and scoring a game high 150pts. Spare a thought for Cam Guthrie, he finished on 99pts.
Hawks easy to score against, believe it or not Ripley
Hawthorn have given up 400+ Disposals in each of the last 4 games, additionally the have conceded an average of 1704.5pts over the same period (Ranked 17th). The Hawks were Ranked 2nd last year conceding just 1495.9pts during the Home & Away season.
Despite losing on Friday Night to Nth Melbourne the Western Bulldogs continued their season long consecutive streak recording 400+ Disposals in each game, the Bulldogs are currently averaging 450.8 Disposals per game.
The Bulldogs scored 1628 team AFL Fantasy points a full 81pts more than Nth Melbourne, considering the Kangaroos were ranked No.1 for AFL Fantasy points conceded heading in to Round 6 this bodes well for the remainder of the season for the Bulldogs continuing their scoring ability.
Average Team Scores – Win: 1674.5
