Fantasy Impact: Wayne Milera averaged 76.5pts from 17 games in 2019, he scored over 100pts in just one game. 

The Crows haven’t changed their opinion on Milera so far over the pre-season, he is worth monitoring for any positive news on his return to play status

Milera is a target for season long fantasy, however it would be wise to take into consideration the cautious approach Adelaide currently have & how that might impact your team if it infiltrates into the season. 

He’s a late round option in single season draft leagues.
