AFL Dream Team Bench Theory

Every week we are faced with the same dilemma, who do I start on the ground? So we have developed a system that has worked wonders for us over the last few weeks. Just thought I would share with you all the system that has turned our season around.

Every week we are faced with the same dilemma, who do I start on the ground? So we have developed a system that has worked wonders for us over the last few weeks. Just thought I would share with you all the system that has turned our season around.

How it works

(1) Select 2 players you are tossing up between

(2) Allocate points to each player when going through the criteria

Criteria

  • Who has the highest season average?
  • Who has the highest 3 game average (if applicable)?
  • Who is playing the team lowest on the AFL ladder?
  • Who has the highest round score?
  • Who has the lowest round score, not sub affected (if applicable)?

*In the event of a tie, both players are allocated a point
*if a player has not played 3 games, you use their season average in this comparison
*If comparing a player from the same team, they both score a point for the ladder position

(3) When you have a total, it is the player with the highest score. In the event of a tie, it is determined by the player who has the highest 3 game average, if they do not have a 3 game average sub for season average

Let me show you an example, in Round 10 we will compare Kyal “horse” Horsely (GC) and James “Old McDonald” McDonald (GWS)

  “horse” “Old Mcdonald” Points
Season average 95.8 87.2 1 horse
3 game average 85.0 84.7 1 horse
Ladder position opposition 4th 9th 1 Old Mac
Highest round 123 98 1 horse
Lowest round 52 72 1 Old Mac
Total points 3 2  

According to this analysis in round 10 we would start “horse” on the ground and “old mac” will take a back seat on the pine.

There it is, I hope it can benefit you as much as it has us

Thanks
