March 4, 2021
Powell-Pepper is considered "unlikely" for the Round 1 match against North Melbourne due surgery on a broken bone in his hand, according to Nathan Schmook of AFL.com.
ANALYSIS
Powell-Pepper scored six majors and logged 77 tackles last season, which aren't bad numbers but seldom yield high-end value. There should be more news on when he could return when Round 1 nears, though for now he'll miss the Community Series match against Adelaide on Saturday.

MPort Adelaide Power
Suspension

Plucky performance Sunday
MPort Adelaide Power
July 13, 2020
Powell-Pepper finished with 22 disposals (11 kicks, 11 handballs), three marks and one goal in Sunday's 63-46 victory over Greater Western Sydney.
ANALYSIS
Not unlike Kane Farrell, Powell-Pepper rolled out the red carpet with clearly his best performance of the season. The young midfielder is certainly developing into a key piece for the Power, highlighting the strength of their youth movement. Given the spread of talent on the Power's roster, fantasy production is capped for many players with the ball finding its way through a range of hands on any given week.
