Brodie Grundy
Imposing in win
RCollingwood Magpies
July 11, 2021
Grundy scored one goal and one behind to go with 22 disposals (12 kicks, 10 handballs) and made 40 hitouts during Sunday's 87-71 win over Richmond in Round 17.
ANALYSIS
Grundy also recorded five marks and five tackles during this game as he easily won his positional matchup. He's scored over 100 points in alternating games over the last seven rounds, but if the Magpies can keep Grundy playing this well, his place as one of the top rucks in the league will remain a guarantee instead of an expectation not always met.

Impresses in return
RCollingwood Magpies
June 26, 2021
Grundy scored two goals to go with 22 disposals (eight kicks, 14 handballs), made seven mars and recorded 27 hitouts during Saturday's 91-79 loss to Fremantle in Round 15.
ANALYSIS
Grundy didn't seem to be affected by a recent neck injury and won his matchup against Sean Darcy in just about every facet of the game. This is a good sign for Grundy as one of the league's best rucks both in fantasy and on the pitch, so his name will likely pop up among the top scorers each week as long as he's fit.
Available for selection

June 22, 2021
Grundy (neck) has been cleared to play in Round 15 against Fremantle.
ANALYSIS
Grundy missed two games and all of June so far after hurting his neck against Geelong. He was also lucky to avoid serious damage after getting sent to the hospital for scans, so Grundy's return to the field will be a welcome site. Until his injury, Grundy was one of the top-scoring rucks in fantasy with over 100 points scored in five of his last seven games. He and the in-form Sean Darcy should be a fun matchup to watch as the second half of the season gets going.
Slated to miss several weeks

Grundy (neck) will be sidelined for 2-to-3 weeks.
ANALYSIS
Grundy suffered a neck injury during Saturday's Round 11 loss to Geelong, but precautionary scans indicated that he avoided a serious neck injury. Grundy is expected to see a specialist in the near future to determine a more exact timetable for his return.
Avoids major neck issue

Neck
May 29, 2021
Grundy was released from the hospital after precautionary scans indicate he avoided a serious neck injury.
ANALYSIS
He suffered the injury during Saturday's 61-51 loss to Geelong in Round 11, but he was thankfully cleared of any major neck issues. Grundy could still end up missing some time, and he be reevaluated later in the week.
Hurts neck in loss

Neck
May 29, 2021
Grundy suffered a neck injury during Saturday's 61-51 loss to Geelong in Round 11, according to AFL.com's match report.
ANALYSIS
Grundy is probably the one player Collingwood needs the most during a difficult first half to the season. However, they may now have to live without him for multiple weeks after he took an awkward high hit that probably won't be reported, but could shorten his season. If Grundy is forced to miss any matches, only Max Gawn has been able to score at an equal rate for fantasy in 2021.
