 Williams acknowledges he has a fair bit to learn from the likes of Josh Kennedy, Jack Darling & Oscar Allen.

“I will be able to learn off them for the next couple of years, develop well enough to hopefully fill-in for them in the future.” he said post-draft. 

Williams also identified Allen as a player that he watched closely, he also provided details of his preferred role.

“He’s someone that I’ve modelled my game on a little bit.” 

“I’m happy to keep my versatility really, coming in as a key position forward as my strength & favourable position but I really enjoy getting up the ground in the ruck or having stints down back.” he added.

2022 AFL Fantasy: Dante Visentini


Williams averaged 14.5 Disposals, 5.9 Marks, 1.8 Tackles & 9.2 Hit Outs from 15 games in the WAFL Colts in 2021.


Fantasy Impact: Jack Williams will add depth to the key forward role at West Coast, he can also play through a key defensive position & through the ruck role. 

He’s a strong mark & strong bodied type, he also has good vision & an ability to hit targets.

The short term fantasy prospects for Williams are likely limited, he is low on the depth chart for key forwards while there is time needed to develop his craft in the West Coast system.

The longer term prospects should increase his scoring output, a key forward role over his career would provide ceiling games but that also comes with inconsistency. A split forward/ruck role would provided a solid scoring output. 

Williams is likely a pass in season long fantasy at Round 1, keep tracking him for specific role & scoring output at the lower level.

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