2018 SUMMARY
The emerging key forward was just one of three first-year players to miss out on his debut in 2018 but the 18-year-old showed plenty of glimpses of his potential at Peel. After kicking six goals in a pre-season game, Dixon was dealt a blow with an ankle injury in round one. Dixon returned to kick 10 goals in his final eight games of the season and earned a contract extension that will see him at Fremantle until at least the end of the 2020 season.
