Pete from aflratings.com.au shares the numbers that matter.
Have the Suns turned the corner to better days?
With a host of Gold Coast players due back from injury in the coming weeks it may be possible that team scoring may increase and provide beneficial returns for Fantasy Coaches, after a brutal stretch between Rounds 4-8 Gold Coast averaged just 1354.6 team points but in the last 2 weeks they have averaged 1532.5pts Rounds 9 & 10.
Nothing to see here just yet for Brisbane
The Lions have been a bit of a Fantasy wasteland this year, they have scored more than 1,500 team points in only 2 of 10 games. It will be decision time for many Fantasy Coaches with the current headache that is Stefan Martin and the imminent return of Tom Rockliff.
Bombers still standing
Essendon are the only team yet to score fewer than 1,500 team points in a game this season, what appeared to be a wasted year for fantasy coaches regarding the use of Essendon players has turned in to mini pots of gold everywhere.

2016 Season Ave: 108.5
Mitchell equalled his career high in Round 10 scoring 163pts against Nth Melbourne, the other 163pt game came against Gold Coast in Round 23, 2015 a team in which he faces this week. Mitchell has scored 100pts or more in 19 of his last 29 games (Strike Rate:62.0%), 10 of those games have exceeded 120pts more (Strike Rate: 34.5%). Incredibly Mitchell was price at $517K prior to Round 10 and rewarded those that traded him in, with a Break Even (BE) of 77.0pts this week it would be wise to welcome him in if you haven’t already done so.
R10 v Lions: 118
Last 3 Games Ave: 94.0
2016 Season Ave: 91.2
Whilst Gibson has frustrated owners this year with his scoring inconsistency he is still averaging a career high of 91.2pts, he is reasonable value currently priced at $443K and considering the Hawks reasonable draw in the short term he is genuine trade in option especially due to a Round 15 Bye. Expectations need to be tempered somewhat for Gibson, he has scored 100pts or more in 10 of his last 34 games (Strike Rate: 29.4%) but can provide a decent overall average to finish the season.
R10 v Demons: 116
Last 3 Games Ave: 88.3
2016 Season Ave: 72.0
After being alerted to Chad Wingard last week in Roy’s Trade Talk those that made the move were instantly rewarded with 116pts against Melbourne, Wingard was able to get hot in the 2nd half of last year averaging 92.8pts in his final 13 games including 7 games in which he scored 100pts or more.
R10 v Freo: 158
Last 3 Games Ave: 107.0
2016 Season Ave: 93.6
If you are looking for a premium under-priced Midfielder then one to consider is David Armitage after coming off a career high 158pts against Fremantle in Round 10, after a slow start Armitage has posted back to back 100pt games to kick start his year. Armitage has a very good ceiling of points and had a 9 game consecutive streak last year in which he scored 100pts or more, in his last 31 games played Armitage has scored 100pts or more in 18 of those games (Strike Rate: 58.1%).
R10 v Bombers: 123
Last 3 Games Ave: 117.7
2016 Season Ave: 100.4
The early season predictions for the demise of Dusty were over exaggerated as he has put together 3 consecutive 100pt games , yes Martin had an indifferent start to the season but when you consider he is averaging over 100pts per game the upside could be huge. Priced a $535K Martin has a very good ceiling of points, since the beginning of 2015 he has scored 100pts or more in 18 games (Strike Rate: 54.5%) with 7 of those exceeding 120pts or more (Strike Rate: 21.2%).
R10 v Giants: 116
Last 3 Games Ave: 96.7
2016 Season Ave: 73.7
For the 2nd consecutive week Walker gets a mention here after yet another 116pt game this time against the Giants on Saturday night, in the last 2 weeks he has averaged 9.5 marks & 5 Goals. With a BE of just 22 this week there could be an instant reward for those willing to invest in a Key Forward as the Crows match-up against the Saints at the Adelaide Oval on Sunday, Adelaide are Ranked No.1 scoring 111.4pts per game this year so hopefully the goals will flow for the Crows forwards including Walker.
R10 v Cats: 137 (5th Game 125pts+ in ’16)
Last 3 Games Ave: 125.3
2016 Season Ave: 112.5
All the negative opinions for Gibbs in the pre-season have fallen flat as he having a career year averaging 112.5pts per game, remarkably he is averaging 124.5pts over his last 6 games in which all have exceeded 100pts or more. With the Blues having a successful season compared to expectations it is a wonder no team has invested some time in to him, with the Lions & Saints ahead for Gibbs further good times are likely ahead in the short term.
R10 v Bulldogs: 117
Last 3 Games Ave: 98.0
2016 Season Ave: 81.4
Howe was outstanding last week against the Bulldogs scoring 117pts, in the last 4 weeks since moving in to the backline he has averaged 98.0pts. Howe is still a viable option for either a Forward or Defensive position for those willing to take the plunge, he has a BE of 38pts heading in to Round 11.
R10 v Suns: 115
Last 3 Games Ave: 114.7
2016 Season Ave: 92.6
The departure of Sinclair to the Swans has opened up all sorts of possibilities for Lycett, he is in the prime years for a Ruckman and can move forward to hit the scoreboard. Lycett has averaged 103.1pts per game in his last 7 games which has included 3 games of 100pts or more, in Nic Nat’s last 7 games he has averaged 88.4pts per game. The No.2 Ruckman tag for Lycett seems so wrong in his current form.
Who Am I Answer: Jimmy Bartel
Good Luck in Round 11
