Wilmot has the potential to evolve from a defender role, Brisbane National Recruiting Manager Stephen Conole can see a possible move up the ground in the future. 

“He is a super competitive player whose ability to defend well but also run and create from behind the game really appeals.

“He played predominately as a small defender this year, but we have seen him play through the wing and across half forward in his junior years, and as the youngest player in this year’s draft pool he has enormous scope to develop into a terrific player for us going forward.” Conole said.

2022 AFL Fantasy: Josh Sinn


Wilmot averaged 15.1 Disposals, 2.7 Marks & 2.3 Tackles from 7 games in the NAB League in 2021.


Fantasy Impact: Darcy Wilmot will add a competitive dynamic to the Brisbane playing list, he’s a mid-size defender with an excellent ability to intercept mark.

He also can add pressure to opposition small/medium forwards, he evades traffic well & has clean disposal.

The short term fantasy prospects could be decent for Wilmot, if he can grab an opportunity early in his career his scoring output could be solid with the Lions looking to use his elite disposal. 

His long term fantasy prospects will be highly dependent on his role in the Brisbane team, again his disposal is an asset which is likely to be highly used.

Wilmot is a consideration when he makes his AFL debut in season long fantasy, he should adapt well with his skills & ability to compete.

He’s probably a pass in single season draft leagues, it’s worth taking a flyer on him ahead of expected ADP in dynasty leagues with the potential of a future midfield role.
