ONE OF the most sought after statistics by AFL Fantasy coaches is centre bounce attendances (CBAs).

Following CBAs gives an insight into who is among the preferred midfield group for each club.

For Fantasy coaches, this gives a peek into the roles of a range of players. Usually midfielders are the higher point scorers and targeting those spending time on the ball can help with boosting the scores.

The round one CBAs, thanks to Champion Data, are below.
