Fantasy Impact: Charlie Clarke will add quality depth to the forward line at the Bulldogs.  

He is very quick thinking in forward situations with an ability to swoop on the ball instantly to create scores, he also brings a high level of pressure.

The short term fantasy prospects are likely moderate, he could very well have an impact in 2023 but his small/medium forward type role is likely to produce low and inconsistent fantasy scoring.

His long term prospects could vary, a move up the ground would be required for a better scoring rate otherwise his scoring is likely to remain inconsistent in a forward role.   

Season long fantasy: Clarke is an option if available players are limited at his salary range, he could see multiple opportunities at AFL level in 2023.

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

DFS: He will be a consideration in favourable situations early especially at a low entry level salary.
