Champion Data has released their perennially controversial player ratings for the 2020 season and their list of ‘elite’ players.
As you’d expect, the Tigers, Giants, Eagles and Lions dominate the list, with 23 ‘elite’ players between them.
Champion Data’s rankings are based on the position of the player and how they rank against other players in the same position.
For example, Brisbane’s Mitch Robinson and Hawthorn’s Ricky Henderson have been rated as the only two ‘elite’ wingmen of the competition.
Hugh Greenwood, Jarryd Lyons, Conor McKenna, Majak Daw, Sydney Stack, Paddy Ryder and Matt Suckling are among the eyebrow raising players on the list.
The likes of Alex Rance, Tim Kelly, Scott Pendlebury, Steele Sidebottom, Lachie Whitfield and Luke Shuey are among the surprising omissions.
Here’s who Champion Data rated as ‘elite’ at your club.
