Freo v Adelaide: Barron’s Analysis
Fremantle v Adelaide CoachKings – what do the stats tell us?
Adelaide’s forwards in Eddie Betts, Tom Lynch and Charlie Cameron have led the way for the team over the last month, with Crows players classified as “general forwards” averaging a team high 107 CKPoints.
Fremantle Dockers have conceded 115 CKPoints to key forwards over the last month, while Adelaide key forwards have averaged a team low 84 CKPoints over the same period. Fremantle have managed to keep general forwards to just 85 CKPoints, so that means we may be looking for the Crows to flip the script this week and we’ll see someone like Taylor Walker, who is good value at just $7,800, have a big day out.
It’s hard to split defenders for Adelaide, with key defenders averaging 96 CKPoints and general defenders averaging 95 CKPoints, but the decision may be decided by their opponents, with the Dockers conceding 102 CKPoints to key defenders and 93 to general defenders. That means Daniel Talia gets a slight edge over Rory Laird as your #1 defensive option this week, or Jake Lever if you want a slightly cheaper option.
Midfielders are the strongest scoring area for the Dockers, averaging a team high 82 CKPoints, so if you invest in Dockers players, then this is the area where you’ll want to plunk your dollars. This means Lachie Neale is looking like a good buy for $8,300.
The Crows give up the most points to ruckman and the Dockers have plenty of options available there. Aaron Sandilands is the more expensive option at $7,800 while you also have cheaper, but riskier, options in Jonathan Griffin for $5,700 and Zac Clarke for $5,500. Rucks is the area of the ground where the Dockers concede the least amount of points, giving up just 84 CKPoints, which makes the appeal of the Dockers ruckman all the greater.
