Fantasy Impact: Stephen Coniglio averaged 60.7pts from 7 games in 2021, he scored a season high 92pts against Fremantle in Round 2.

So far so good for Coniglio, he’s on track to complete a near full pre-season.

His scoring output is likely to increase as a result of full fitness & a return to the middle of the ground.

His specific role throughout the year is yet to be identified, it is expected he will see significant midfield usage. 

The Giants have very good midfield depth, coverage is also required forward for Toby Greene who will miss through suspension in the early rounds of the 2022 season. 

Coniglio is a strong consideration for season long fantasy, his ability to accumulate disposals at a high rate should provide a good scoring output. 

He’s a consideration just beyond the early rounds in single season draft leagues.
