With the first leader board for our AFLW fantasy competition having been published yesterday, some of you may be wondering where their points are (or aren’t) coming from. Those who want to dig a bit deeper should check out the attached spreadsheet, but as a starting point, I have put together a breakdown of the best-performing players across each position, compared draftees with non-draftees, and revealed the highest (and lowest) scoring positions.
Top-10 highest-averaging players:
|Chelsea Randall||ADEL||MID / DEF||126.7|
Predictably, these are mostly midfielders. What about the other positions?
Top-5 highest-averaging defenders:
Top-5 highest-average rucks:
Top-5 highest-averaging forwards:
Finally, the top-10 averaging draftees:
|Bonnie Toogood||WB||FWD / DEF||74.3|
|Ruth Wallace||ADEL||MID / FWD||71.7|
The top-two draftees are also the 4th and 7th highest-averaging players overall. Cunningham is even the #1 forward.
In fact, there isn’t all that much difference in the overall level of scoring between draftees and established players:
Some positions are definitely higher-scoring than others, however:
For whatever reason, RUC/FWDs have been scoring very poorly. At the other end of the scale, we have FWD/DEFs and RUC/DEFs; there aren’t all that many of these, however, so a couple of very strong players may be skewing their averages upwards somewhat. If you ignore these outliers, then, unsurprisingly, players who spend all their time in the midfield tend to be the highest-scoring.
This is just the tip of the iceberg. Like I said at the beginning, those of you who want to dig deeper should definitely take a look at the spreadsheet, which contains data on every 2018-listed player. Let us know in the comments if you find anything interesting.
