Western Bulldogs National Recruiting Manager Dom Milesi provided an update post-draft. 

“Arthur is a very exciting player,”

“He’s got blinding speed and a fair bit of endurance as well.”

“He’ll have to hit the gym when he gets here, he’s only a light guy at the moment, but certainly has got some very exciting attributes that we’ll be patient with.” Milesi said.

2022 AFL Fantasy: Josh Fahey

 

Jones averaged 12.4 Disposals, 2.1 Marks & 0.9 Tackles from 10 games in the WAFL Colts in 2021.

 

Fantasy Impact: Arthur Jones will add a different dynamic to the Bulldogs forward line, he has excellent speed & awareness.

He’s sharp & elusive at ground level, his first year in the AFL system will provide development & an ability to build up body size.

The short term fantasy prospects are likely to be very limited for Jones, the Bulldogs could be very patient in 2022.

The longer term prospects aren’t likely to provide a consistent scoring output, especially if he’s locked into a small/half forward type role. 

Jones is a pass in season long fantasy, the scoring output isn’t likely to be strong early in his career.

He’s a pass in single season draft leagues, he’s a very late speculative option in dynasty leagues.
