Cam Rayner continues to progress well through pre-season, returning from an ACL injury early last year the former No.1 draft pick will be ready for the start of the season
Brisbane captain Dayne Zorko provided the latest update on Rayner this week.
“It’s so good to see him have so much confidence in his knee, obviously it’s been a difficult 12 months for him.”
“But his last 3 practice games have been amazing, really starting to see some of what we saw last pre-season before he did get injured.”
“Watching him the last few sessions, there’s a real reminder of what he can do and I’m really excited and optimistic about what he can achieve this year.”
AFL News on Twitter @aflratings “At the moment, running him through the midfield and trying to work up his running capabilities is something that we’ve been trialling in these games.” Zorko said.
“He just looks magnificent.”
Rayner averaged 9.8 Disposals, 3.0 Marks & 3.2 Tackles in 2020 (*16 Min Qtrs).
Fantasy Impact: The news continues to be optimistic for Rayner, Dayne Zorko has been quite bullish on his pre-season thus far with opportunities through the midfield also available.
His scoring output from a fantasy perspective hasn’t been great in his half-forward role, he was to be given an opportunity to spend more through the midfield last season before injury ended his year.

With limited playing time available prior to Round 1 it is important to track his scoring rate along with his specific role in pre-season games, there is scoring upside potential.
Rayner is a consideration for season long fantasy, his spot in the Brisbane 22 is secure and his salary is somewhat appealing.
He remains likely a pass or a late round speculative option in single season draft leagues.
