David Mundy (MID, $584,000) led the way for the Fremantle Dockers in 2015, after celebrating a less conventional 11th year break-out where he improved his average by ten on the previous season and reached triple figures for the first time in his career with 105. Unfortunately this season, he loses DEF status and is available purely as a MID.
Brownlow medalist Nat Fyfe (MID, $581,000) was a picture of consistency last year, averaging a career high 105 from his 18 games. He managed 13 tons over the course of the season and dropped under 90 on only two occasions. Unfortunately, there is an element of 'buyer beware' this year after Fyfe’s pre season was disrupted by injury. On the flip side, he might slip down the draft order in Fantasy Elite, providing a potential bargain pick.

Lachie Neale (MID, $563,000): It could be argued that we missed the boat with Neale, after he experienced a huge break-out last season where he improved his average by 19 to a very impressive 104. However, he is every chance to continue to improve, as he has done in every season of his four-year career. One of his most exciting attributes is his ability to 'go big', demonstrated last season with seven scores over 120, including two thumpers of 151 and 162. He could be still considered slightly underpriced after receiving a red vest in round 23 and playing through illness for a score of just 36 in round four.
Harley Bennell (FWD/MID, $509,000): After losing a lot of popular dual-position players this season, it will be hard to say no to the talented Bennell, especially given the potential improvement at his new club. He has shown Fantasy value, averaging 85 for three-straight seasons before a career high of 92 in 2015. Keep an eye on his likely role over the pre-season, but he is certainly an exciting prospect in all Fantasy formats.
Harley Balic (FWD/MID, $161,000), Darcy Tucker (DEF, $158,000): Traditionally it is tough to get a consistent game for Fremantle in your first year on the list, but keep an eye on Balic and Tucker, picks No.27 and No.38 respectively as they put their best foot forward over the pre-season.
Hayden Ballantyne (FWD, $306,000): Hardly a Fantasy stud, but it is tricky to argue that Balla isn’t under-priced this season. After battling injury for much of the year, he was a shadow of his former self in 2015, recording the lowest average of his career apart from his rookie season. In the four years previous, he averaged respectable numbers of 72, 74, 71 and 72 which should be a good indication of what he can return to.
