2022 Fantasy: Jason Horne-Francis Role

The role for Jason Horne-Francis has been established for the 2022 season.

The 2021 No.1 draft pick will play across the half-forward line and through the midfield at the Kangaroos. 

Senior coach David Noble discussed his role with Riley Beveridge and stated his chances of playing in Round 1 were “heading that way”.

“He’s not in the team just yet, but he’s certainly in the mix to perform over the next few weeks.”

“As an individual, he’s a ripper. He’s a great young man. He’s very enthusiastic, very driven and very competitive. He wants to make his mark this year.”

AFL News on Twitter @aflratings “No, I think we have to temper
the midfield aspect.”

AFL News on Twitter @aflratings Noble added that “he’s probably in that
forward-mid rotation I would think”.

Horne-Francis averaged 16.5 Disposals, 4.0 Marks & 4.2 Tackles for South Adelaide in 2021.

Fantasy Impact: Jason Horne-Francis remains on track to play early in the 2021 season.

His initial role has been confirmed as predominantly a half forward role with a sprinkling of midfield usage including what should be centre bounce usage. 

The Kangaroos are still in re-build mode, his split forward/midfield role could evolve throughout the 2021 season.

His scoring output should be strong, but playing mostly forward is likely to be inconsistent.

Horne-Francis is a strong consideration for Round 1 in season long fantasy, he should exceed value quite easily.

He’s a speculative mid-late round selection in single season draft leagues.
