Collingwood GM of List Management Derek Hine suggested that Daicos could play in a half-back/wing type role in his first year.
“I think potentially he’ll roll through sort of high-back/wing type roles” Hine said via Road to the Draft podcast.
“He would have been very close to our (best) 22 this year (in 2021).”
“We’ve got to make sure we plan his development” Hine added.

Fantasy Impact: Nick Daicos is a high accumulating type midfielder, his elite skill level will be a valuable asset for the Magpies.
The short term fantasy prospects for Daicos are quite strong, he’s a live chance to make an early season debut & have a solid fantasy output.
The longer term fantasy prospects appear to be very good, he’s likely to develop into a full time midfielder.
Daicos is a strong consideration for season long fantasy at Round 1 if he’s named, ownership is likely to be significant.
He’s a potential mid-late round selection in single season draft leagues, he’s a high priority target for dynasty leagues.
