Adelaide Crows: Team of the Decade (2010-2019)

We recently launched both our Stats Insider AFL Player Ratings along with our new, weekly statistical series - “Stats That Matter”, and today, we’re introducing yet another content series, one in which will reveal the ‘Team of the Decade (2010-19)’ for each of the 18 AFL clubs.

These teams are created using the minimum games rule (50 games - except for GWS Giants and Gold Coast Suns) while relying on Stats Insider’s total and average game rating points to guide the process for team of the decade selection.

Given the complexity of AFL positions, our custom ratings were used as a guide by the Stats Insider staff who then worked together to mold it into a team that's fair and reasonable. The ratings and stats quoted are only based on the player’s output/performance while they were at that particular club.

Based on data over the last decade (2010-19), we’ve also ranked each team according to their win% and will reveal their respective ranks as per our average expected score Elo across the decade.

North Melbourne claim the #8 spot on our 'Team of the Decade' series. Next up, the 2017 grand finalists Adelaide Crows come in at #7.

Elo Rank: 6th

Win% Rank: 7th

Overall rank: 7th
