Inside the Numbers – Round 4

In the last 3 weeks Collingwood has averaged 418.7 Disposals (Rank 1), they are the only team that has recorded 400+ Disposals in 3 of 4 games this season. The Magpies have averaged 1697.7pts since Round 2 (Rank 2), they outscored their opponents by an average of +197.0pts over the same period.

Several players at Collingwood are averaging more than 10.0pts above their 2017 average, here are just a few that might be of interest to fantasy coaches.

Brodie Grundy: 2018 Ave 119.5 (+13.3pts)
Mason Cox has played more in a key forward spot therefore allowing Grundy to take control in the Ruck, he has averaged 131.3pts from his last 3 games. In Round 1 Grundy recorded 60.9% of Collingwood Hit Outs, that number has jumped to 83.7% in Rounds 3&4.

Steele Sidebottom: 2018 Ave 117.3 (11.5)
Sidey has scored 100pts or more in 3 of 4 games with 2 of those games exceeding 120pts, he has a season high of 137pts against Adelaide last week. If the High Disposal numbers for Collingwood remain constant then Sidebottom should continue on his good form.

Tom Phillips: 2017 Ave 97.8pts (+14.5)
The numbers for Phillips are a reflection of the last 3 weeks for the Magpies, after opening with 67pts in Round 1 against the Hawks Phillips has averaged 108.0pts from his last 3 games.

Josh Thomas: 2018 Ave 83.3 (+19.1)Thomas has been able to hit the scoreboard in every game this year, he followed up from his 5 Goals last week to kick 2 Goals against Adelaide on Friday night. Could be available in Draft Leagues.

James Aish: 2018 Ave 80.3 (+18.4)
Aish has quietly averaged 89.0pts from his last 3 games and is available as a DEF/MID, worth keeping an eye on especially if higher priced Defenders keep failing.
