June 6, 2021
Cox suffered a potentially serious hamstring injury during the Round 12 loss to the Western Bulldogs, according to coach Justin Longmuir. "Potentially (it could be season ending) but we don't need to go there just yet so we will get it scanned and let you know."
ANALYSIS
Cox may not miss more than a single match but until scans are done, confidence in his his fitness isn't high based on the reports from his coach. With 11.8 disposals per game this season, his fantasy value isn't exactly the highest either.
