“Obviously enhancing my main weapon, that for me is my inside game probably.”

“My clean hands, my ground balls and probably my power as well out of the stoppage.”

“Looking to enhance that a little bit this year,” 

“My kicking is probably my major growth, it’s something I feel like I can take to the next level in 2022.” He said. 

Phillips averaged 10.9 Disposals, 2.2 Marks & 2.3 Tackles in 2021.

Fantasy Impact: Will Phillips averaged 43.6pts from 14 games in 2021, he scored a season high 66pts in Round 7 against Melbourne. 

The scores were underwhelming for Phillips in his first year, with another pre-season under his belt and likely increase in midfield usage this year there is scoring upside potential.

Phillips remains a consideration for season long fantasy this season, however a strong showing in pre-season games from a scoring perspective is a must. 

He’s a late round speculative option in single season draft leagues, it’s worth monitoring the pre-season scoring prior to any decision being made.
