Inside the Numbers – Round 6

Pete goes inside the numbers from round six.

St Kilda has been a frustrating team to deal with from a fantasy perspective in 2018 & particularly one player named Jack Billings, the Saints are struggling with a 1-1-4 record and are averaging 64.7pts per game (Rank 17) & 56.2pts from their last 5 games (Rank 18).

Languishing mostly around the half forward flank the output for Billings has been hampered by the poor form by the Saints, coming off a year in which he scored 100pts or more in 50.0% of his games Billings has exceed 100pts in only 1 game this season.

Last year Billings averaged 101.2pts from winning games, he scored 123pts in the Saints only win this year & 87pts in a draw against GWS in Round 5. Billings averaged 88.0pts from losing games last season, he has averaged 68.5pts from losing games in 2018.

Based what many predicted for the Saints this season Billings was a decent pick prior to Round 1, but after losing 8 games last year by 30pts or more we may have been blinded somewhat by opinion.

The amount of people trading out Billings this week will significantly increase coming off another sub-par score, before you trade him out here are the last scores from his next 3 opponents:

Round 7: 135 Melbourne
Round 8: 102 Fremantle
Round 9: 119 Collingwood

If the Saints can turn their season around quickly then Billings will likely benefit, he does have a decent ceiling that can’t be underestimated. One final note, Billings averaged 90.7pts between Rounds 1-11 last season and averaged 97.8pts between Rounds 12-23.

    Taranto or Lids

      Can’t split them either mate. Everyone saying Taranto will lose his midfield once Kelly comes back but they’re only assuming. Given how good he’s been I still think he’ll a part of the rotations. Lids, well we know he can score highly and consistently, only concern is body, don’t see him playing all 22 games, likely get a rest or two

      Taranto doesn’t need a huge amount of tackles to score highly as he tackles so much. I’m favouring Taranto slightly just due to being a little more reliable body wise. He’s also 5 from 6 over 90+. We could well be looking at the Clayton Oliver of 2018 but are just too scared due to role change. If he continues his role, Taranto will be close to a top 6 forward imo

    Im on Lids. Bit of a POD and higher ceiling than Taranto. Im a TT owner and am devo about not taking punt on Lids last week. GWS are building so Im on Lids. Will take some good scores and price increase then dump if he misses

    guys i need help.

    I can either get rid of Billings for Deledio, or downgrade billings to Spargo and and go holman to merrett.

    SO ultimately it’s either Deledio or Merrett. but if I go merrett my forward line looks weak as p!ss

    This week I’ll be saying goodbye to Casboult and Banfield this week for Much and Delidio. Is this a good move

    Hi Dan, if I was in you position I would probably fix Forward line.

    If I was going to fix my Mids seeing I got Merrett I would jump on Fyfe or Treloar.
