Brisbane are likely to consider a dual ruck set-up for the 2021 season, key forward Eric Hipwood will be sidelined for the early part of the season recovering from an ACL injury which does enable another key tall to be utilised.
Fort is likely a pass in season long fantasy at Round 1, any consideration will be influenced by his starting salary & a definitive role.
He’s likely a depth option only in deep draft leagues.
“He can be a ruck combination with Oscar (McInerney) or he can play forward & go in the ruck” Brisbane GM of Football Danny Daly (October 14) via Lions Media.
