Hurts ankle in Round 3

Ankle
April 4, 2021
Coniglio suffered an ankle injury during Sunday's Round 3 loss to Melbourne, according to AFL.com.
ANALYSIS
Coniglio has had a strong start to the season with 46 disposals over the first two rounds, but could miss a couple of weeks or more if this injury is more serious. When he does return, Coniglio should be a reliable pickup from a team that hasn't offered many high-end fantasy options.
22 disposals, six marks in defeat

March 31, 2021
Coniglio brought in 22 disposals, six marks, four tackles and a behind and goal assist each Sunday as GWS fell to Fremantle 87-56 at Optus Stadium.
ANALYSIS
One of only two GWS players to eclipse double-digits for both kicks and handballs in Sunday's defeat, Coniglio's 12 in the former category helped him to exit Round Two ranked #12 in the AFL for kicks per game in 2021. The 27 year-old heads into the month of April averaging a solid 24 disposals an outing, but rated the 80th-most productive fantasy midfielder in the league.

Coniglio logged 23 disposals (15 kicks, eight handballs) and made six marks during Friday's 82-30 loss to St. Kilda.
ANALYSIS
Coniglio responded nicely after getting dropped from the team for the Round 17 loss to Melbourne. As the team captain, it was too little to late to get his side to respond to their poor form, and it resulted in the finish to their season after being unable to contend for a place in the finals.
Tallies 24 disposals in win

July 24, 2020
Coniglio collected 24 disposals from 16 kicks and eight handballs to go with seven tackles and five clearances during Friday's 62-50 win over Richmond.
ANALYSIS
Coniglio is tied for fifth in the league in disposals after recording over 20 for the fourth consecutive match. His tackle total was also his second-highest of the season and crucial in helping break a two-match losing streak. Even if Giants can't keep winning, Coniglio and his teammates have the talent to produce some big performances against any opponent.
Best on ground in loss

July 18, 2020
Coniglio tallied 27 disposals (12 kicks, 15 handballs), three tackles, two marks and one behind in Saturday's 88-68 loss to the Lions.
ANALYSIS
Coniglio stamped his authority on the game, amassing game-high totals in disposals, clearances, and contested possessions. After a period of time in which Coniglio has struggled to find his best form, the captain stood tall on what was an otherwise disappointing afternoon for the Giants. With Toby Greene on the sidelines, it was not a complete surprise to see Coniglio turn things around. The challenge will be whether or not he can keep things trending in the right direction when Greene is back on the field.
