Thanks to Champion Data, has assessed three key areas the Crows held its own in last season.

Points for 107.8 #1
Inside 50 to goal 27.5% #1
Scoring from intercepts 23.1% #1

As the minor premiers, it was only natural the Crows were going to lead the League in several key areas. Most notably was their ability to hit the scoreboard, with their high-powered attack scoring an average of 107.8 points per game. That was 18.7 points more than the competition average. They also were the most efficient at kicking goals once the ball went inside their attacking 50m arc, at 27.5 per cent compared to the League average of 24.7 per cent. Defender Jake Lever's departure to Melbourne, and Brodie Smith's absence due to a torn ACL, will impact the Crows' ability to score from intercepts. They led the League last year, scoring 23.1 per cent of the time they intercepted the ball from the opposition
