Player Bio

Produced the nest year of his career and bene ted from settling into a stay-at-home role at half-forward. Watts kicked 38.18 for the season, failing to kick a goal in just ve games. It was this greater consistency and the fact he had a say in deciding the results of games – such as his game-winning goal against Gold Coast – that made Watts a much-improved player. Only Jesse Hogan kicked more goals for the Demons last season as Watts became a consistent threat up forward. Much maligned earlier in his career, Watts has turned things around and is now an accomplished AFL player. Re-signed with Melbourne until the end of 2019.

Brownlow Medal: 2016 votes 5; career votes 12.
Draft history: 2008 NAB AFL Draft 1st round selection (Melbourne) No. 1 overall.
