West Coast Update: Jack Redden

Jack Redden is progressing well in his return from shoulder surgery, West Coast senior coach Adam Simpson confirmed the midfielder had recently been approved to return to full training.

He underwent surgery at the end of the 2021 season. 

Simpson discussed Redden on Sportsday WA this week. 

“He got ticked off I think last week into full training,”

“I mean the good thing about shoulders is you can stay pretty fit.”

“And his physical nature of how he plays, he hasn’t missed a beat really since he’s been back training with us.”

“He’s in full training now.” He said. 

Redden averaged 24.6 Disposals, 5.7 Marks, & 3.9 Tackles from 18 games in 2021.

Fantasy Impact: Redden averaged 93.7pts from 18 games in 2021, he scored 100pts or more in 50.0% of games. 

He scored a season high 142pts against Collingwood in Round 5.

The news is positive for Redden heading towards the start of the season, expect him to see a decent amount of centre bounce usage when he returns to full fitness.

Redden is a pass in season long fantasy, coming off shoulder surgery isn’t ideal for long form fantasy. 

He’s an option well beyond premium midfielders, if he is still available late he might be worth stashing on your bench.
