Fritsch played 23 games in a solid debut 2018 season in which he won Melbourne's best young player award. The utility was played across the forward line, wing and defence in 2018, with his sharp kicking skills proving an asset for the red and blue. He was unlucky to be dropped for the 2018 Preliminary Final, however he has a strong future ahead.
