Inside the Fantasy Numbers – Round 17

As the season starts to wind for several teams that won’t play finals in 2016 so could the possibility of increased fantasy points those teams may give up. Fremantle might be one of the teams to give up plenty, in their last 3 games the Dockers have conceded an average of 1836.3pts whilst scoring just an average of 1463.0 (-373.3 Differential) which is quite alarming.

Fremantle remaining opponents:

R18 v Gold Coast MS
R19 v Sydney DS
R20 v West Coast DS
R21 v Adelaide DS
R22 v GWS Giants SPO
R23 v Western Bulldogs DS

If those numbers continue for Fremantle, it may be wise to factor trading decisions for key players from those opposing teams.

Looking at the Bulldogs final few games of 2016 it might be a good time to throw up some Etihad Stadium Stats where they play 4 of their remaining 6 games, additionally this could be good information for those considering the likes of Jason Johannisen & Matthew Boyd etc.
