AFL FANTASY TAKE

Prestia averaged 67.7pts from 9 games last season, he scored a season high 89pts against Carlton in Round 1.

The setback for Prestia does put him in doubt for Round 1 with the season opener against the Blues not far away, if he were to miss it would create an opening in the midfield at the Tigers albeit short term.

The salary for Prestia is arguably slightly under priced compared to his career scoring output, this latest injury likely places risk on a long term hold in AFL Fantasy classic. However if he were to miss Round 1 the ownership will be thin, it’s worth tracking his health status closer to the start of the season.

Prestia likely slides quite a few spots in 10 team standard draft leagues.
