AFL News: Tom Stewart


Team: Geelong

August 17

AFLRATINGS NEWS: St Kilda senior coach Ross Lyon says they’ll put some work into Tom Stewart this week. Lyon referenced the need to impact James Sicily recently and mentioned that Stewart is a similar type of player. Lyon added that they will trust their own ball movement first and will aim to not let Stewart dominate. 

Fantasy Impact: Tom Stewart could be on the radar for a shutdown role by the Saints this week. The Saints have shown a tendency to negate several intercepting half-back types across the season with a player assignment but can also direct the ball away from an area of most influence from those types of players. Cooper Sharman could be an option to impact Tom Stewart this week.

Fantasy Impact: Port Adelaide could target Tom Stewart in Round 21 after going to him earlier in the season (see below). He scored just 66pts in Round 14. Sam Powell-Pepper (Port Adelaide) would be the likely opponent for Stewart this week with others attempting to negate his easy access to the ball as well as controlling ball movement from D50. Stewart has been used at centre bounces recently and could be a move for Geelong senior coach Chris Scott to break any sort of tag.

AFLRATINGS NEWS: Senior coach Chris Scott says he will be surprised if Tom Stewart (right knee) plays next week after he was subbed out of the game at QT against Collingwood on Friday night. Stewart will undergo further assessment in the coming days. 

Fantasy Impact: Tom Stewart recorded 3 disposals and 1 tackle for 14pts (AF) before his knee injury. A replacement trade will likely be required this week for those that invested early. A tough night to start the season for owners.
