Cal’s Scale of Hardness – Round 5 Update

RED, GREEN, TABLES – have been updated to assist those with the Cripps trade!

What more do you need, RED + GREEN + TABLES have anything sorted.

How Does the Scale of Hardness Work?

Based on the data from the opening rounds, teams are coloured according to how many points they gave up to opposition players. This is how the Scale is currently constructed.

This data will change as the year progresses… and so will the Scale. However, after only a few rounds we need to remember that the data is limited. My video explains this further and as the year rolls on, this data will become more accurate.

The Scale should be used as a resource. A guide in case you are torn between two players and you are looking for a deciding factor after the coin let you down. The Scale is here to help!

Please note… forwards and rucks are not covered. The rucks are basically the top tier players and we might need to look at this if an injury comes our way, but for now… not many people are really looking to trade in rucks anyway. The forwards we should be targeting in Fantasy should be playing midfield and that should be your area of focus.


One thing to take out of this and remember we are looking at early data, is that WCE defenders have a tough run coming up… based on what we have seen so far. Draft players like Alex Witherden could even be shopped around if you are a true believer in the red and orange. Geelong defenders look great alongside Essendon backmen which could mean maybe we see an improvement in Ridley who hasn’t set the world on fire averaging 74… maybe hold on to him over the coming week.


Does this help shape your Patrick Cripps trade? Once again, my video explains this in more detail and also outlines my top-6 options from the players at the top of the tree. The video speaks explicitly about this trade and the options you have and what is approaching.
