Houli recorded 11 marks (15 kicks, 11 handballs) and logged 11 marks during Friday's 79-77 loss to Port Adelaide.
ANALYSIS
Houli made his season debut after missing the first three rounds at AFL level with a calf injury. With a solid performance that was already much better than his efforts from 2020, Houli could be a high-value pickup from a team that gets good fantasy production from its defenders.

Houli (calf) is likely to play in the VFL this week.

Houli (calf) is aiming to be training fully over the weekend and prepare for a return by Round 3, according to Physical Performance Manager Peter Burge.
ANALYSIS
Houli struggled to stay fit during the offseason and still isn't quite ready to play. He should be a reliable option, though likely not spectacular, after recording 18.6 disposals per match in 2020.

Houli (calf) has little chance of appearing in the Mar. 18 season-opener against Carlton, according to Callum Twomey of AFL.com.
ANALYSIS
Houli picked up this injury in last season's Grand Final victory and still remains unfit. While his status for the first match of the 2021 campaign hasn't been assured, his availability seems unlikely at this point in his recovery.

Tops disposal count Friday
DRichmond Tigers
October 10, 2020
Houli ended with 32 disposals (16 kicks, 16 handballs), five marks and two tackles in Friday's 80-49 semi-final victory over the Saints.
ANALYSIS
Houli was arguably the Tigers best on Friday, controlling the midfield in what was a reasonably comfortable victory. His ability to hit the open man was on full display and his form of late certainly bodes well for the Tigers who are now looking to play in their third grand final in the last four years.
