AFL FANTASY TAKE

Smith averaged 64.8pts in 2020, he scored 80pts or more in 30.0% of games with a season high of 99pts in Round 6.

Smith will likely slot straight onto a wing at the Cats in 2021, this will likely result in Mitch Duncan playing more as an inside mid.

Geelong finished off the 2020 season with Selwood, Duncan & Guthrie being used at a high rate through the midfield, Patrick Dangerfield & Brandan Parfitt split time forward & midfield with Dangerfield spending extended periods of time forward in the finals. 

Mark Blicavs likely returns to defence in 2021 after spending some time on a wing in 2020.

Smith is a pass in AFL Fantasy classic & a late round selection in 10 team standard draft leagues.
