Beyond 18: Delayed breakouts edition

Matthew Wright

Wright has always threatened to become fantasy relevant, but has yet to able to translate his ball winning ability to consistent enough footy over the course of the season to be able to stay on the park for the Crows. However with a new lease on life at a rebuilding Carlton, he may just get the job security he needs to be able to flourish.

Wright was a shock delisting from the Crows, and Carlton have taken a chance on him as a delisted free agent. Both himself and Brendan Bolten would know that this is his last chance at senior AFL level – he won’t get another one. 2016 is make or break for Wright, and with so much on the line he may finally deliver on his potential, both for his own career and your fantasy team.

It’s for these reasons he’s becoming a trendy selection in salary cap formats, and in draft leagues he is certainly going to be drafted. Due to his relative job security and potential improvement I would suggest he’s worth a flyer late in your draft.

    Whitfield & Coniglio. Had huge hopes last year. They did okay, but not great, so I’ve ‘stopped trusting them’. Not a part of my keepers, so just my luck they’ll breakout THIS year. Too much competition in that midfield.

      I’m huge on Coniglio this year, Jamie. I think he’s just as talented as the other mids at GWS, and with Treloar gone I think he moves into a really prominent midfield role. Expecting 95-100 point production out of him.
