Dawson is likely to be used at a high rate through the Adelaide midfield, this should be a mix of outside & inside usage with the potential that centre bounces will be sprinkled in.
It was a breakout year for Dawson in 2021 from a fantasy perspective, there is the potential he could maintain his strong scoring output at Adelaide.
He’ll certainly have opportunities to be used at a high rate through the midfield.
Dawson is a consideration for season long fantasy at Round 1, ownership isn’t likely to be too strong.
It’s worth bumping him up on your draft boards in single season draft leagues.
