Fyfe will miss the start of pre-season, he initially underwent surgery on the same shoulder after failing to complete the 2021 season.
“Nat’s recovery from his initial shoulder reconstruction surgery had plateaued and, as a result of that, we sent him in for a scan which indicated that there was a small crack in the bone block that forms the basis of these types of surgery.”
“Whilst it is disappointing, we know that he will be incredibly diligent in his recovery and a return to training date will be advised in due course.” Fremantle EGM of Football Peter Bell via Dockers Media.
Fyfe averaged 24.1 Disposals, 3.9 Marks & 4.1 Tackles from 15 games in 2021.

The latest injury news for Fyfe will impact his pre-season, there is currently no suggestion he will miss the start of the 2022 H&A season.
Fyfe has to be a consideration to avoid in season long fantasy at Round 1, his recent injury history isn’t great plus his potential mid/fwd role could deliver volatile scoring.
He will likely slide in ADP in draft leagues.
