”Really exciting to have him.”

AFL News on Twitter @aflratings “I think he will be a very
good shot to play very early in the year and have a real impact.”

“He played a bit of match-sim last week, probably kicked about 4 or 5 goals nipping around up there.”

“Certainly slotted straight into the AFL standard.” O’Brien said.

Fantasy Impact: Josh Rachele remains a live chance to debut in Round 1, having impressed to date over pre-season a small forward type role is on the cards. 

His scoring output could be volatile in his forward role early on, but having the ability to hit the scoreboard should keep the scores ticking over.

Rachele is a consideration for season long fantasy at Round 1 if named, he should exceed value based on his starting salary. 

He’s a late speculative option in single season draft leagues, but keep in mind he is unlikely to see much time through the midfield.
