Fantasy Impact: Brodie Grundy averaged 93.3pts from 6 games in 2022 at Collingwood, he scored a season high 124pts against West Coast in Round 4.

He averaged 16.8 disposals, 2.5 marks, 3.8 tackles & 30.3 hitouts.

Grundy scored 100pts or more in 33.3% of games.

He will be paired with Max Gawn at the ruck position at Melbourne, it is quite possible the usage for each will be matchup based week to week.

Grundy could be a wait and see in season long fantasy, the situation may not be ideal to have two premium ruck options playing in the one AFL team. 

He’s likely an option just beyond the early picks in single season draft leagues.
