AFL FANTASY TAKE
Murphy averaged 95.9pts from 19 games in 2019, he averaged 107.5pts in Carlton winning games.
The 1-2 weeks reduced training loads for Murphy won’t heavily impact his pre-season training, he is expected to be available for Round 1.
Murphy averaged 105.1pts under new coach David Teague when he returned from injury, many will overlook him in classic but with an expected low ownership and some upside available he would be a decent unique selection albeit at high risk.
