Player Bio

Came under scrutiny for a couple of lacklustre efforts early in
the 2015 season and was even dropped to the VFL in round
seven, although he was instantly recalled. When up and going,
Watts’ ability to use the ball and bring his teammates into
the game was of major benefit to the Demons. But the fact he
was omitted for the final game of the season against Greater
Western Sydney demonstrates he is no longer a walk-up start
in Melbourne’s best 22. Contracted until the end of the season,
Watts’ versatility is important for the Demons, but he needs to
find greater consistency.

Brownlow Medal: career votes 7.
Draft history: 2008 NAB AFL Draft 1st round selection (Melbourne) No. 1 overall.
