Dealing with ankle knock
FWest Coast Eagles
Ankle
April 20, 2021
Kennedy could play in Round 6 against Geelong if he can overcome a kick to his ankle, according to GM Craig Vozzo.
ANALYSIS
Kennedy has already scored 13 goals this season, but his value is hampered by a lack of disposals. With a good week of training, he should have few problems being available for selection in either of the next two rounds.
Four majors, nine marks in defeat
FWest Coast Eagles
March 31, 2021
Kennedy banked 11 disposals, nine marks, four goals and a single behind, tackle and goal assist each Sunday as West Coast fell to Western 100-93 at Marvel Stadium.
ANALYSIS
Kennedy garnered a game-high four goals and a double-digit total for disposals for a second-straight week on Sunday. The veteran currently paces the Eagles in goals per game for the season, but leaves something to be desired as the 42nd-most lucrative fantasy option at forward through two rounds.
Slated to play in Round 1
FWest Coast Eagles
March 16, 2021
Kennedy (calf) is available for selection in Round 1 against Gold Coast, per GM of Football Craig Vozzo.
ANALYSIS
Kennedy didn't play during the preseason but has otherwise recovered from a calf injury to be ready for Round 1. He was one of the stars of 2020 with 34 goals and 22 behinds, though a few more disposals would bring him even higher in 2021.
Won't play Sunday
FWest Coast Eagles
Calf
March 4, 2021
Kennedy is dealing with a calf injury and should increase his training regiment later in the week but will not play in Sunday's practice match against Freemantle, according to General Manager Craig Vozzo. "We won't play him this week. We'll build him into round one and we're really confident he'll be available and firing."
ANALYSIS
Kennedy should be ready for round one against Gold Coast as long as he stays on schedule. He finished 2020 with 31 goals, which was tied for the third-most in the Premiership. If he can add more consistency beyond scoring, then Kennedy will be an even better fantasy option than he already can be.
Likely to play in elimination final
FWest Coast Eagles
Ankle
September 29, 2020
Kennedy (ankle) is in line to play in Saturday's elimination final versus Collingwood.
ANALYSIS
Kennedy suffered an ankle injury in the Eagles' home-and-away finale back on Sept. 18 but appears to be in a good spot as the team looks to stave off elimination for another round. While he is a significant goal-scorer, racking up 1.9 per game on the season, Kennedy isn't exactly a fantasy darling thanks to a lack of contributions in other categories.
