AFL FANTASY TAKE

Langdon averaged a career season high 92.1pts for the Dockers in 2019, he averaged 111.3pts from his final 4 games.

Melbourne have stated they want Langdon to play on wing in 2020.

“We had nearly 15 players go through the wing position this year, so to be able to have both Adam (Tomlinson) and Ed (Langdon) join us and play predominately on the wing will give us some good stability in the midfield.” GM of Football Operations Josh Mahoney.

With the Demons identifying Tomlinson & Langdon for a wing role that could be good news for Angus Brayshaw moving back into CBA’s (Centre Bounce Attendances), as for Langdon his scoring should remain at least stable in 2020.

Langdon is a must watch in pre-season for his role & scoring output in classic & a mid round selection in draft.
