AFL Fantasy Analysis: Lachie Neale

AFL FANTASY ANALYSIS

Lachie Neale was traded to Brisbane from Fremantle in the 2018 Trade Period, after delivering consistent numbers at the Dockers he moves to the Lions where tagging has been an issue for Dayne Zorko and as Dayne Beams departs.

Neale scored 100pts or more in 63.6% of games & 120pts or more from 9.1% of games in 2018, these were similar splits compared to 2017.

The new home for Neale may put off a few fantasy coaches based on an unknown situation, he has been an extremely consistent fantasy scorer but has not been a player that regularly hits ceiling games.

With Zorko likely to be the main target from opposition clubs Neale could put up similar numbers at Brisbane next season, he was No.2 behind Nat Fyfe and put up decent numbers with or without Fyfe.

Brisbane averaged 373.5 Disposals in the 2018 H&A season (Rank 11). they averaged 363.8 Disposals in the 2017 H&A season (Rank 16).

Neale likely moves up to the No.1 Midfield spot at the Lions, if you believe Zorko will continue to be the main target by opposition clubs next season then considering Neale might be worth investigating a little bit further.

The ownership for Neale might be on the lighter side at Round 1 next season, this could be a good opportunity to select a unique premium Midfield option.
