Inside the Numbers Round 22 Wrap
Pete looks inside the numbers ahead of the Fantasy Grand Finals.
Just a quick grab of numbers this week, good luck to all the Grand Final teams & those at the top of Overall Ranking.
With only 1 week remaining in the H&A season and opinions narrowly focused in on match-ups for Round 23 it is time to fade the obvious article and take a look at teams that improved & regressed compared to last year.
Best Team Average Disposal Differential
+32.8 Gold Coast
The Suns averaged 408.5 Disposals between Rounds 1-15 but have fallen away sharply to average 348.9 Disposals between Rounds 16-22, overall the No.1 improved team compared to last year.
The Lions started from a low base averaging 337.5 Disposals last year, under new coach Chris Fagan they have improved in retaining the ball and should do so again in 2018.
The Magpies have the equal number of 400+ Disposal games this year with 12, between Rounds 9-20 they recorded 400+ Disposals in 81.8% of games.
Worst Team Average Disposal Differential
Most of the damage done here on the Swans was between Rounds 1-6 when they averaged 354.0 Disposals per game, since then they have averaged 382.7 Disposals per game.
-20.7 Western Bulldogs
The Bulldogs average 414.1 Disposals last year recording 400+ Disposals in 13 games, they were on track for similar numbers again this year but have only recorded 2 400+ Disposal games since Round 14 (Season: 9).
The Blues regressed a little in 2017 after a flat spot between Rounds 17-21 averaging just 330.4 Disposals per game, they have recorded the 2nd least 400+ Disposal games this season with 3.
