Cam Rayner remains on track to complete a full pre-season almost a year on from rupturing his ACL.
The 22 year old missed the 2021 AFL season and with a full recovery will be available to return in Round 1 which may include an increased role through the midfield.
He spoke with the media on Friday about his role.
AFL News on Twitter @aflratings “To be honest, it’s wherever Fages kind of sees me.”
“Obviously I love being in there.”
“I put in a lot of work through my rehab to make sure I was up to scratch to come back and get in there,”
“I just feel like I’m moving a lot better across the ground and contest to contest.”
“A lot of the coaches have said that as well which is very exciting.”
“We’ve had a good rotation system me & Bails (Zac Bailey) the last couple of weeks,”
“Were obviously really close and can bounce ideas off each other throughout the game.”
GAME DAY LIVE on Twitter @aflratings_Live “If I can work with him or any of the other midfielders to get in there, I’m more than happy to.” Rayner said.
He averaged 9.8 Disposals, 3.0 Marks, & 3.2 Tackles in 2020 (*16min Qtrs).
Fantasy Impact: The news continues to remain positive for Rayner over pre-season, he’s fresh and ready to go for the 2022 season.
His role in the midfield is likely to increase compared to what we have seen previously, his historical scoring output has not been strong based on a predominantly forward type role.
It is expected he will still see a decent amount of forward usage in 2022.

Rayner is a consideration for season long fantasy, his spot in the Brisbane team is secure and his salary is somewhat appealing.
He likely remains a late round speculative option in single season draft leagues.
