Likely to play in elimination final

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.

Suffers ankle injury in victory
FWest Coast Eagles
Ankle
September 18, 2020
Kennedy tallied just two disposals, one mark and one tackle before being forced off with injury during Thursday's 49-34 victory over the Kangaroos.
ANALYSIS
Kennedy appeared to injure his ankle during a marking contest and despite attempting to play on, he was ultimately ruled out for the rest of the game. The Eagles will play in the finals, although their exact position in the eight remains undecided. They will be sweating on the fitness of their star forward and the two-week break is certainly going to work in his favor.
Scores two majors in loss
FWest Coast Eagles
September 6, 2020
Kennedy scored two majors and logged two behinds in addition to winning seven marks during Sunday's 49-47 loss to Western Bulldogs.
ANALYSIS
Kennedy made an important contribution just after returning from a concussion that barely ended in defeat. The Eagles' star will hope to keep up the pace with two Rounds remaining before the finals.
Back in action
FWest Coast Eagles
September 5, 2020
Kennedy (concussion) will rejoin the lineup for Sunday's match versus Western, Gary Stocks of the Eagles' official site reports.
ANALYSIS
Kennedy sat out the previous contest Tuesday due to a short turnaround but appears to have passed the protocols and is back in action for the Eagles. He will slot in as a full forward in his return.
Ruled out Tuesday
FWest Coast Eagles
Concussion
August 30, 2020
Kennedy (concussion) won't play Tuesday against Essendon.
ANALYSIS
Kennedy suffered a concussion early in Thursday's loss, and he'll be forced to miss another game as a result. The Eagles have plenty of depth to fill in for him. Whether he'll be able to compete Sunday against the Bulldogs remains to be seen.
Suffers concussion early
FWest Coast Eagles
Concussion
August 27, 2020
Kennedy suffered a concussion early in Thursday's loss to Richmond and it's questionable if he'll be ready to face Essendon on Tuesday, according to coach Adam Simpson. "He got a head knock and obviously couldn't come back on. I had a chat to him at three-quarter time, I'm not quite sure if he knew I was talking to him or not. We just have to assess him but we'll do whatever is right for him,"
ANALYSIS
Kennedy hasn't been the most consistent fantasy option, but the Eagles star could be a big loss if they lose their momentum as a result. However, he could easily miss one or no games and there's plenty of depth on his club to make up the difference.
