Dunstan will provide midfield depth for Melbourne in 2022, the high centre bounce rotation of Christian Petracca, Clayton Oliver & Jack Viney is likely to remain the same.
Dunstan is an unlikely consideration in season long fantasy at Round 1 unless opportunities open up through injury, he’s likely a late round selection at best in draft leagues.
The scoring ability is strong, it’s about opportunity now for Dunstan.
