Fantasy Impact: Josh Rachele is a live chance to debut early in 2022, a role as a small forward is likely to be his way into the team.
The short term fantasy prospects for Rachele could result in a volatile scoring output based on his role at Adelaide, as he develops he could move further up the ground which could increase scores.
Rachele is a consideration for season long fantasy at Round 1, his position in the team could be decent but keep in mind his small forward role which can be a volatile scoring position for fantasy.
He’s a speculative very late selection in single season draft leagues, he’s an early round target for dynasty leagues.
