AFL FANTASY TAKE

Clark averaged 63.6pts from 18 games in 2020, he recorded a season high 91pts in Round 9 against Sydney.

In the 2020 Marsh Community Series Clark was used on a limited basis at centre bounces, he spent most of the 2020 season playing across half-back.

Late in the season the centre bounce usage for Clark increased covering injuries, in the Elimination Final he wasn’t used in the middle but notably in the Semi Final against Richmond he was preferred at centre bounces over Seb Ross in the second half. 

Assuming that Clark won’t be impeded by his knee in the pre-season it is worth taking note of his 2021 role over the summer, it’s possible his midfield usage will be expanded.
