AFL FANTASY TAKE

Wingard averaged 67.5pts from 17 games in 2020, he scored a season high 100pts against Brisbane in Round 1. 

The injury is a setback for Wingard so close to the start of the season, no doubt the Hawks will be ultra cautious with his availability.

Wingard was used at 31.2% of centre bounces in 2020, that included usage in 16 of 17 games. 

It is expected he will be used in a forward/midfield role again this season.

With the latest injury Wingard is likely a pass in AFL Fantasy classic to start the season, he likely slides several spots in 10 team draft leagues.
