Culley was used at 50.0% of centre bounces in games which he played last season, the retirement of Jack Redden and the availability of experienced players likely dictates his usage in the middle of the ground. 

There were decent early signs last season that he can put up solid fantasy numbers, a better assessment on his output should be available with a more settled West Coast team in 2023.

2022 Season 
100pts or more: 0.0% (2021: -)
120pts or more: 0.0% (2021: -)
Game Time: 66.8%
PPM: 0.99

There is a significant growth opportunity for Culley heading into his first pre-season at an AFL club this summer.

2023 Jai Culley Outlook

Season long fantasy: He’s right in that mid-salary range which can be tricky. There is upside scoring potential if there’s a guaranteed spot in the midfield for the early part of the season.

Single season draft leagues: He’s likely a late round speculative option.

DFS: His scoring output is likely to be directly correlated to opportunities as a pure midfielder.
