AFL FANTASY TAKE
It has been an injury interrupted season for Mitch Duncan, he started his 2021 campaign in Round 3 & was concussed in Round 10.
The PCL injury likely rules him out for a significant part, if not all of the remaining games in the H&A season.
Duncan has scored 100pts or more in 6 of 8 non-injury related games this season.

Quinton Narkle has been overlooked this season at times, he may finally see a decent run in the AFL team.
Jordan Clark is also a like for like replacement on a wing role for Duncan, Gryan Miers is nearing a return while Shaun Higgins was the medical sub for Round 14.
Geelong have excellent depth, they are also relatively healthy right now.
Senior coach Chris Scott may even shuffle a few roles within the current line-up to accommodate the loss of Duncan.
Duncan is a trade-out in AFL Fantasy classic.
