Despite the loss of Jon Ceglar, the Hawks still have decent ruck depth which includes Ben McEvoy & Ned Reeves, Lynch now has an opportunity to be part of the ruck mix in the short & long term.
Lynch is a consideration in season long fantasy at Round 1, it will be a salary based decision coinciding with what has to be a decent amount of security in the Hawks team leading into the 2022 season.
It’s worth monitoring Lynch over the pre-season for draft leagues, his draft selection will be aligned to his expected position in the Hawthorn team over the course of the season.
