2022 AFL Fantasy: Sam Darcy

 

Callaghan averaged 24.3 Disposals & 3.2 Tackles from 6 games in the NAB League in 2021.

 

Fantasy Impact: Finn Callaghan is a strong bodied inside contested type midfielder, his long term fantasy prospects should be very good.

The short term fantasy prospects however may be limited, the Giants do have excellent depth through the midfield plus Leon Cameron has shown a tendency to be patient with young recruits. 

Looking back to Tom Green & his development, Callaghan could have a similar trajectory. 

Callaghan is likely a pass at Round 1 in season long fantasy, there would be significant interest if he can secure a place inside the best 22. Worth monitoring over the pre-season. 

He’s likely a speculative late round selection in single season draft leagues, he’s a high priority target for dynasty leagues.
