Fantasy Impact: Darcy Tucker averaged 61.3pts from 16 games in 2021, his season was impact by injury.

He scored a season high 111pts against Gold Coast in Round 13.

The midfield usage for Tucker will be strong this season, with the loss of Adam Cerra there are centre bounces available which should be absorbed by Tucker, Will Brodie and a core group of young mids.

Tucker is likely a pass in season long fantasy at Round 1, there is upside scoring potential available but there are likely better options at a lower salary that can provide a better ROI. 

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