FIVE rounds down, five to go. Although some of the game-to-game scoring can be hard to predict from a Fantasy perspective, there's some match-up data that is making some sense as we hit the second half of the season.

Using some of data Fantasy fan and stat guru Jaiden Popowski on Twitter has put together, we can see which teams are giving up more points than others.

The Suns and the Kangaroos are the easiest for defenders to score against, while forwards lap it up against the Bulldogs and Eagles. Midfielders appear to get some uptick in scoring when facing the Western Australian sides with the Dockers and Eagles the easiest for those playing in the engine room to score against.

On the flipside, the Lions are by far the hardest match-up for midfielders.
