Collingwood, Essendon(e), Freo: 2022 Kick-In Analysis

Cheap +3’s 😍 When it comes to Fantasy Footy, coaches love nothing more than fielding players with conducive roles to score bulk fantasy points! Inevitably, defenders who play on out of the defensive goal square when kicking the ball in are massive winners. For the record, if a kick-in is taken within the defensive goal square, no stat (or more importantly the +3!) is recorded. However, as soon as a player leaves the square, they cash in with a cheap +3 (kick) or less commonly +2 (handball). In this series of articles, I will breakdown and analyse each respective clubs kick-in numbers for 2022 and provide my two cents (‘Crystal Ball’) on what to look out for in season 2023.


2022 Fantasy Review: Collingwood

Collingwood... 1 point from the Big Dance and about 1500 points from the top 8 for total Fantasy points! Love 'em or hate 'em, you have to admire what they did this season, culminating in a seismic rise into the AFL's top 4. From a Fantasy perspective, very little to crow about with the exception of Jack Crisp for about 13 weeks and a young fella named Nick Daicos... In these reviews, we will take a closer look at each club’s Fantasy snapshot for season 2022, whilst I nominate players for MVP, best rookie and biggest flop. I will also provide my two cents on what to look out for in 2023!
