“I think my strengths have always been on the outside, running and linking up, connecting the backs and forwards whilst playing on the wing.”

“I think there’s an opportunity, being on the wing or giving a chop out inside (midfield).. to help the team with my versatility.” Tom Phillips.

AFL FANTASY TAKE

Phillips averaged 63.1pts in 2020, he scored a season high 101pts in Round 2 against Richmond.

The off-season trade to the Hawks was probably the best case scenario for Phillips who had lost his place in the Collingwood team late in the 2020 season, the departure of Isaac Smith also opens up the possibility of a direct replacement.

The DPP status for Phillips does make him an option at Round 1 in AFL Fantasy classic, he is value based on his historical career output at Collingwood. 

If Phillips remains available at the midway point of a 10 team standard draft league, then he may be worthy of selection with his potential scoring upside.
