Melbourne National Recruiting Manager Jason Taylor provided an update on Woewodin prior to the AFL Draft. 

“He’s played in all areas of the ground this year.

“There’s been some growth in his inside game, he’s played half-forward, he’s played rebound,

“He’s played on the wing and he’s adapted to all those roles really well and he’s done what he’s been asked from his coaches, so that also points to his character.” Taylor said.

2022 AFL Fantasy: Cooper Whyte

Woewodin averaged 22.7 Disposals, 5.1 Marks & 4.5 Tackles from 15 games in the WAFL Colts in 2021.

Fantasy Impact: Taj Woewodin will add midfield depth at Melbourne, he’s a contested type mid that can win his own ball. 

He’s physically strong & works through contested situations well, he can also hit targets at a high rate.

The short term fantasy prospects for Woewodin are likely limited, he likely evolves his game at the lower level in 2022. The Demons also do have very good depth through the midfield.

The long term prospects could be healthy, once he fully develops an inside midfield role is a possibility which should provide a solid scoring output. 

Woewodin would be a consideration in season long fantasy if he breaks through for a debut in 2022, it’s worth tracking his progress at the lower level for scoring rate.

He’s a pass in single season draft leagues, he’s an option just beyond the early rounds in dynasty leagues. The payoff may be a while coming due to the current core midfield group at Melbourne.
