“We’ve decided the best way to manage this injury is to operate to stabilise the ligament,”

“This will get him back playing sooner and avoid ongoing complications.”

“We will confirm his timeframe to return to play following the surgery but expect him to miss the 6-8 weeks of footy.” Bulldogs Head of Sports Medicine, Chris Bell.

The Bulldogs will likely provide updates as his rehabilitation progresses.

AFL FANTASY TAKE

Adam Treloar averaged 97.2pts between Rounds 1-9, he averaged 105.7pts in the 7 games leading up to Round 10.

The injury will provide premium opportunities in the Bulldogs midfield, Bailey Smith started to see an increase in centre bounce usage when Josh Dunkley was injured. He’ll likely see a further spike in centre bounce usage.

Lachie Hunter did see minimal centre bounce usage for the first time this season in Round 10, he may see an increase in usage in a wing type role while rolling through centre bounces to assist with rotations. 

Pat Lipinski should see increased opportunities at AFL level, he can be used in a similar role to Hunter. 

The Bulldogs have generally run a narrow centre bounce rotation this season.

Treloar is a trade-out in AFL Fantasy classic.
