March 31, 2021
Kelly garnered 29 disposals, five marks and clearances each, four tackles and a behind Sunday as West Coast fell victim to Western 100-93 at Marvel Stadium.
ANALYSIS
Kelly topped all West Coast players for disposals and handballs and recorded the third-most tackles on the team in Sunday's defeat. Those numbers left Kelly the lone member of the Eagles to top 100 fantasy points against Western and currently find him ranked 13th-best in the AFL for total fantasy scoring (219) through two rounds.

Slated to play in Round 1
MWest Coast Eagles
March 16, 2021
Kelly (thumb) is available for selection in Round 1 against Gold Coast, per GM of Football Craig Vozzo.
ANALYSIS
Kelly didn't play in the preseason and much like Josh J. Kennedy will be primed to go in Round 1 without any other problems, arising. With 20.1 disposals per match last season, Kelly should have good value as long as he continues getting plenty of touches.
Should play in round one
MWest Coast Eagles
Thumb
March 4, 2021
Kelly will be held out of Sunday's practice match as he lets a fractured thumb completely heal but should have no problems playing in round one against Gold Coast, according to GM Craig Vozzo.
ANALYSIS
Kelly wasn't always a top fantasy option last season but he should begin the season in good shape when this injury is behind him. In 2020, Kelly would often get involved with a mid-high number of disposals plus a few marks and tackles and those are good ways to stay relevant in fantasy almost every week.
Has huge game in win
MWest Coast Eagles
September 10, 2020
Kelly kicked one major and scored two behinds to go with 30 disposals (20 kicks, 10 handballs) in addition to making six marks, logging four tackles and completing nine clearances during Thursday's 65-50 win over Saint Kilda.
ANALYSIS
Kelly had one of the most important performances of any player all season by being in the right place at the right time to keep his club within reaching distance of the Saints at every opportunity. Before this match, Kelly only topped 20 disposals in one of the previous five matches. As a result, it might be hard to expect Kelly to match his efforts in the next Round, especially with his place in the finals now secured thanks to his work.
Collects 30 disposals in win
MWest Coast Eagles
July 26, 2020
Kelly scored one goal to go with 30 disposals (16 kicks, 14 handballs) and six clearances as well as three assists during Sunday's 111-45 win over Collingwood.
ANALYSIS
Kelly orchestrated the drubbing of a short-handed Magpies team and continued to pile on the pressure throughout the contest. He'll now need to focus on making his good efforts more consistent to help the Eagles hold firm higher on the ladder.
Measured performance Saturday
MWest Coast Eagles
July 11, 2020
Kelly amassed 24 disposals (14 kicks, 10 handballs), five marks and four tackles in Saturday's 67-34 victory over the Crows.
ANALYSIS
Kelly stamped his authority on the game Saturday, guiding the Eagles to a comfortable victory over the winless Crows. The Eagles will now head home with back-to-back victories and certainly seem to be finding their mojo after an unassuming start to the season. For Kelly, Saturday was a sign that he is rounding into form, notching season-high totals across multiple categories.
