“This is clearly unfortunate news for Sam, who was really looking forward to helping the side put together strong performances in the back half of the season,”
“Bad luck like this is never good to receive but at least by picking up the injury early we’ve been able to ensure we can get Sam on the road to recovery as quickly as possible.” Blues Head of Football Brad Lloyd.
AFL FANTASY TAKE
Docherty has averaged 98.6pts from 14 games this season, he has scored 100pts or more in 42.9% of games.
Zac Williams is sidelined through suspension in Round 16, Nic Newman who was the medical sub in Round 15 likely holds his spot in the team after an excellent game after replacing Marc Murphy (Calf).

Sam Petrevski-Seton could move to half-back for Round 16 coverage, beyond that Williams & Newman could see a spike in fantasy output due to the loss of Docherty.
Docherty is a trade-out in AFL Fantasy classic.
