Don't know if there's anything in this...
Minimum 5 games played, number of players whose season average falls in the bracket for each of the last 3 years (the data includes finals, it was just the easiest format to grab off footywire).

2018: 90-100: 48, 100-110: 31, 110-120: 6, 120+: 4

2019: 90-100: 46, 100-110: 27, 110-120: 9, 120+: 4

2020: 90-100: 43, 100-110: 35, 110-120: 15, 120+: 5

There was a big bump in players averaging well this year. I think finding those who can maintain it will separate the good from the rest next season - there will be a lot of traps I think.
I think you’re right. The shortened quarters will be one factor here - they make scoring more extreme, meaning a higher number of players are likely to average extremely highly. The reverse is also true - I suspect that if you did the numbers on averages in the 30s and 40s, you would find a similar thing.

I could end up rocking Gawn,Marshall, Martin and have Preuss with Ruc/Fwd in the fwd line. Grundy could be a cheaper option over Gawn to fund Martin at R3. Martin with the possibilty of Macrae,Treloar,Bontempelli,Smith,Libba at his feet. Could end up a Naismith situation or a Pittonet at R3 who knows. 2021 version of 2020 Martin R3(240k) instead of Pittonet(237k) and Preuss(240-270k) at F4 instead of D.Smith(336k).

Taylor Adams is surely worth a starting spot now that he's their only decent midfielder under age 29?

Neale, Titch, Adams, Rowell + 1 my likely starting mids.
I don't think that will make him score any better. He already played 100% midfield, and there are plenty of teams without a 110+ midfielder.
