Key Statistics?

I’m just learning the game and hoping to get a handle on what statistics are important for assessing teams and individuals. Generally would like some guidance in the following:

For games you haven’t watched, are their certain team stats you look to (other than goals, behinds, final score) which really give you a good idea of how a team performed in a game?

And then also, what are the most important stats for evaluating the play of individuals and the various positions they play?

Sorry if the questions are overly broad- I probably don’t know enough about the game at this point to ask better ones!

Disposals would be a good start. Depending on how the game was played looking at contested and uncontested you could draw conclusions.

Insides 50’s and clearances also tend to be stats the indicate the team who is on top.
