Horne-Francis is keen to make an early season debut in 2022.

“It’s a dream for a lot of players to make their debut in Round 1. I hope that’s the case for me and I feel pretty well prepared and pretty ready for it.” Horne-Francis said.

The Kangaroos invested the top pick in the draft on Horne-Francis, he has the flexibility to play multiple roles. 

“Jason has proven he can play all three zones effectively. He gives us plenty of flexibility with his inside/outside balance, power, speed, aerial competency, ground level work and scoreboard impact.” Kangaroos national recruiting manager Mark Finnigan.

Horne-Francis averaged 16.5 Disposals, 4.0 Marks & 4.2 Tackles for South Adelaide in 2021.

 

Fantasy Impact: Jason Horne-Francis is a live chance to make an early season debut in 2022, his initial fantasy output should be solid through what is likely to be a forward/midfield role. 

The longer term fantasy output is quite appealing as he develops into a genuine inside midfielder that can hit the scoreboard. 

Horne Francis is a consideration in season long fantasy at Round 1 if he is named, ownership could be strong. 

He’s a mid-late round speculative selection in single season draft leagues, he is a high priority to draft in dynasty leagues.
