Zach Merrett Role

AFLRATINGS NEWS: Zach Merrett says he’ll need to adjust his midfield role in 2024 to allow for other players to develop. 

Fantasy Impact

While not overly concerning at this stage of the pre-season it is certainly noteworthy for Zach Merrett. He’ll remain an important part of the Essendon midfield continuing to have major impact at stoppage/clearance situations as well as around the ground in open space. His starting position may vary each week and within games but his fantasy scoring output should remain strong.
