Logs 32 disposals in loss
DRichmond Tigers
August 13, 2021
Short logged 32 disposals (22 kicks, 10 handballs) and made four marks during Friday's 106-67 loss to GWS in Round 22.
ANALYSIS
Short has eliminated his inconsistencies by the ned of the season with at least 26 disposals in six straight games, but this loss also marked his first score over 100 fantasy points in five games. Among available defenders, Short offers some of the better guaranteed value through his solid play in possession and keeping it.
Busy in loss
DRichmond Tigers
July 11, 2021
Short recorded 31 disposals (22 kicks, nine handballs) and made four tackles during Sunday's 87-71 loss to Collingwood in Round 17.
ANALYSIS
Short scored the most points of any Tiger during another tough loss where they gave up the lead in the fourth quarter. With at least 100 points scored in four of his last six games, Short is one of a few players from his team with solid value in their current form.
Lone Tiger w/100+ points in loss
DRichmond Tigers
June 25, 2021
Short hauled in 22 disposals, six tackles, five marks, four clearances and a single behind Friday as Richmond fell to St. Kilda 62-22 at MCG.
ANALYSIS
Season-highs for tackles and inside 50s (4) and a personal best four clearances saw Short finish Friday's match Richmond's lone player with 100 or more fantasy points versus St. Kilda. The AFL's No. 3 in both total kicks (264) and total rebound 50s (99) exits the month of June now averaging 93.3 points per game this season and rated the 13th-most fruitful option for selection at defender.
Good performance in loss
DRichmond Tigers
June 13, 2021
Short recorded 26 disposals (24 kicks, two handballs) and took 15 marks during Sunday's 85-81 loss to the West Coast Eagles in Round 13.
ANALYSIS
Short has scored at least 100 fantasy points in four of the last seven games, alternating good and bad with each passing round. As he's consistently recording 20 disposals every time he's on the field, Short can still be worth consideration for selection, though remain wary of how consistent his up-and-down showings have become.
23 disposals, 12 marks v. Adelaide
DRichmond Tigers
May 30, 2021
Short registered 23 disposals, 12 marks, a pair of tackles and a single clearance Sunday as Richmond defeated Adelaide 111-83 at Giants Stadium.
ANALYSIS
Saturday saw Short keep alive a season-long streak of appearances with at least 20 disposals and tally the best mark total of his six year career. The 25 year-old exits Round 11 with just one goal and one behind to his name in 2021, but, as the league's No. 1 in total rebound 50s (86) and No. 5 for total kicks (204), continues to remain relevant as the AFL's No. 16 for fantasy points per game (90.5) at defender.
