AFL FANTASY TAKE

Young averaged 51.5pts from his first 4 career games before a season ending injury in Round 6, he scored a season high of 77pts in Round 4.

Young was elite in a half-back role in his junior career, we only witnessed a small sample size in 2020 & are yet to see him really thrive at AFL level which does provide plenty of fantasy upside potential in 2021.

Young is certainly worth consideration at Round 1 in AFL Fantasy classic he provides great value based on his starting salary. Ownership will be strong. 

Young could also be a mid-late round steal in 10 team standard draft leagues
