      Great scorer but he will retire at the end of the year, so he drops a little in keeper league rankings because you won’t own him for long.

        Does Hunter Clark eventually move into the midfield? If he doesn’t then I reckon he’ll be a Premium Defender for years to come

          It’s possible, but he looks settled for now.

      Probably overthinking, but just worried he may have to play more defensive once Harry Taylor retires.
