Cal’s Scale of Hardness – Rd. 15 onwards

RED, GREEN… TABLES. Check out the players who have the best run home.

As you know, these stats are based on what opposition teams have given up so far this year (and the last five weeks) and then coloured accordingly. These are based off real data and not opinions and should be used to assist you in the trades you are looking to make over the coming weeks as we approach the end of the year. Especially for those 50/50 line ball decisions.

DEFENDERS

BEST RUN HOME:

Daniel Rich has averaged 97 this year and ends the season with some juicy match-ups playing three of the easiest teams in the final four rounds. Carlton’s run over the next 5 weeks is top draw. Expect players like Sam Docherty to pick up a few extra points over this period. Bachar Houli and Jayden Short have a solid run from here on in as well. Short has averaged 107 in his last three and Houli has been great as well, playing the last ten straight games.

RECONSIDER:

Would you consider a Gold Coast defender? Probably not… so it’s probably time to move on players such as Markov when you see the run he has coming.

MIDFIELDERS

BEST RUN HOME:

Watch-out! Jarryd Lyons and Lachie Neale (and Zorko)… they will be coming home hard. Lyons has been amazing but all eyes will be Neale as his price slowly drops to a bargain. Ollie Wines owners have more to be happy have, not only about his form but his run to the end is sensational.

RECONSIDER:

Sydney have a tough run over the next three week and so do the Crows. Players like Rory Laird and Rory Sloane, might drop a little in their number with the run they have to the end.

RUCKS

BEST RUN HOME:

Sam Draper has a tough couple of games on the cards, but after that… it’s smooth sailing. Max Gawn has a nice run approaching as he meets his next ‘tough’ opponent in round 21.

RECONSIDER:

Sean Darcy has been so good this year, but can he keep it going against those tougher teams. He has averaged 103 in his last three games and hasn’t put a foot wrong. Even a tough draw won’t slow this big unit down. St Kilda also have a very tricky run to finish the year as well.

    It’s because you should be trying to stack your forward line with midfielders

    I agree with forwards, especially when you have two pure FWD rooks, with one on field and one on the bench. I always get screwed over there with more points on the bench…

    Odd that Houli and Doc are mentioned for a good run home.
    Houli may come back for the last round and Docherty is done for the year

        Yeah – from prior to R15. A few people have asked about the scale so I thought I would whack it back at the top of the page. We were looking at doing an update last week, but the moving feast that is the fixture made us avoid it!
