The news isn’t great for those looking at starting Bennell in AFL Classic, his Round 1 salary would have attracted a high level of ownership.
Bennell has a career average of 82.5pts, he averaged a career season high 92.0pts in his final year at Gold Coast in 2015.
If he get listed, I've calculated him priced at $224k.
