Fantasy Impact: Jacob Konstanty will add depth to the forward line at Sydney.  

He has a very sharp awareness around goal at ground level and is a legitimate target on the lead. 

The short term fantasy prospects could be moderate, a small forward role is unlikely to provide a strong fantasy scoring output.

His long term prospects could be similar, unless a move up the ground eventuates his fantasy scoring output could remain low and inconsistent. 

Season long fantasy: Konstanty may be an option if available players at his salary range are limited, the expectation on his scoring rate won’t be high. 

Single season draft leagues: He’s a pass in single season draft leagues.

DFS: He will be a consideration at a low entry level salary in favourable match-ups only.
