AFL Season Long DVP

Season Long Defense vs Position (DVP) is based on analysis outlined here. Positions have been classified by using a clustering algorithm which groups similar players. Refer to the glossary below for further explanation of each position. Colours reflect the following scale:  RED (+/-) of < -5 ORANGE (+/-) of < -2 WHITE -2 < (+/-) < 2 LIGHT GREEN (+/-) of > 2 DARK GREEN (+/-) of > 5

KEY FWD:Key Forward which is fairly explanatory but also includes smaller forwards who are heavy goal scorers
GEN FWD:General Forward encompasses small/medium forwards aswell as half forwards that push up the ground from time to time
INS MID:Inside Midfielders are your centre bounce midfielders
RUCK:Ruck needs no further explanation
WNG DEF: includes both Wing and Attacking Defenders who push up the ground
GEN DEF:General Defender includes key defenders and general defenders that aren’t classified as Attacking Defenders above or Designated Kickers below
DES KCK:Designated Kicker refers to players who either take the majority of their team’s kick-ins after opposition goals or are the preferred set-up player from defensive 50. These players could also be classified as GEN DEF or WNG DEF but have been given their own classification considering their fantasy scoring is affected by opposition shots on goal.
