Inside the Numbers Round 4 Wrap
Pete from aflratings.com.au goes inside the fantasy numbers after round four.
While the game results have not been going Brisbane’s way so far in 2017 there has been a significant statistical shift from last year that are impacting fantasy coaches, the Lions are averaging 357.5 Disposals per game which is an increase of +20.0 compared to the 2016 H&A season. Brisbane were ranked 18th in 2016 averaging 1426.3 team points per game, the Lions are now ranked 16th averaging 1518.8pts per game this season and 1585.0pts in the last 2 weeks.
The quiet achiever of Brisbane’s improvement is what they are giving up in 2017, last year they were ranked 14th conceding 391.7 Disposals per game and now have moved to 4th conceding just 364.0 per game. As a result Brisbane is conceding 1570.3 fantasy team points (Rank 5) through 4 games, that’s an improvement from conceding 1670.2pts last year (Rank 15).
Sticking to the Sunshine State, Gold Coast with a finally decent midfield have also improved dramatically compared to last year. The Suns conceded 393.0 Disposals in the 2016 H&A season (Rank 16), through 4 games they are conceding just 346.3 Disposals per game which is good enough to be ranked No.1 in the AFL. The Suns are conceding 1532.5 fantasy team points (Rank 3) per game, they conceded 1673.1pts per game last season (Rank 16) and have shaved off 140.6pts.
