2022 Fantasy: Brad Hill Role

Brad Hill has indicated what position he would like to play in 2022, in an interview with Mitch Cleary on Saturday he said he would like to keep exploring the half-back role.

Hill has been boxing 4-5 times a week as part of his pre-season program & has dropped 1.5 kilograms Cleary reported.

“I feel like I’m moving pretty well, I feel fit & I feel like I’m in better shape than I was last year” Hill said.

As the 2021 season was winding up Hill & the coaching staff discussed expectations for the upcoming season, Hill expressed his desire to play across half-back. 

“End of the year we had a little bit of discussion,”

“I said I like the half-back role & it’s probably something I’d like to keep exploring” he added. 

Consistency was an issue for Hill in 2021, he has acknowledged the poor form & has a want to maintain a high level of performance. 

“I want to have a year where I can be consistent all year”

Hill averaged 19.7 Disposals, 3.9 Marks & 2.3 Tackles from 22 games in 2021.

Fantasy Impact: Brad Hill averaged 71.2pts from 22 games in 2021, he scored a season high 110pts against Port Adelaide in Round 18.

The scoring output for Hill was quite volatile in 2021, teams did focus on shutting him out of the game at times which should be a concern again in 2022.

Hill did have decent fantasy scoring output at Fremantle, he recorded an average of 93.7pts in 2017 & 88.7pts in his final year of 2019.

He’s a questionable selection in season long fantasy but there is genuine upside in his scoring potential, his mid-range salary will be a hindrance which should result in low ownership at Round 1. 

The role over pre-season should be monitored, but keep in mind teams are unlikely to put much time into him in practice matches .

His output over pre-season could be decent if he is selected to play a half-back role.

Hill could be a late round selection in standard draft leagues, he may have early season trade value.
