Inside the Numbers Round 8 Wrap

After Round 6 Fremantle were ranked 16th averaging 1527.0 fantasy team points, in the last 2 weeks they were ranked 3rd averaging 1766.5 fantasy team points and have the all-important Round 13 Bye for those coaches looking to back end their Bye structure. Brad Hill has taken his game to the next level with scores of 159 & 123 from his last 2 games, Michael Walters has also seen more midfield time delivering a monster score of 137pts in Round 8.

Stephen Hill’s return to the Fremantle team is imminent and could impact individual performances, Brad Hill has averaged 88.8pts with Stephen Hill in the team & 120.0pts without Stephen Hill whilst Michael Walters has averaged 54.6pts with Stephen Hill in the team & 87.3pts without Stephen Hill. In response to being asked whether or not Michael Walters’ role was long term in the midfield Ross Lyon stated “I think it’s a bit of both”, previous history relating to Ross Lyon giving away his true thoughts are poor and as a result the scoring for B.Hill & Walters could be volatile in the short to medium term.

The other battle going on at Fremantle are the numbers between Nat Fyfe & Lachie Neale, there has been a distinct shift in fantasy output from Fyfe since Round 4 as he has averaged just 83.2pts between Rounds 4-8 compared to his Rounds 1-3 average of 112.0pts. At the exact time Fyfe’s numbers dropped the output for Neale spiked averaging 92.3pts between Rounds 1-3 & 110.6pts between Rounds 4-8, Fremantle has won 5 of their last 6 games and Fyfe’s numbers have been well below par for many fantasy coaches.
