can't see myself not doing a vision reel of JJ this off season. Guy plays footy in a far too attractive way to let an off season pass through without some JJ vision getting cut up and put together

Look no further than post 94 for some of the best, most conclusive and professionally put together JJ footage out there :thumbsu:

Boy is this guy quietly putting together a great season.

Has had at least 18 possessions in every game so far. In 2017 and 2018 he had 5 games each season where he didn't reach 18 touches.

Of the Defenders across the competition who have had at least 40 rebound 50's and average 22+ disposals, JJ leads them all with 12 Goal Assists (Next best is Rory Laird on 5). This includes names who are firmly in the AA conversation such as Stewart, Sicily, Lloyd, Hurn, Rich, Crisp, Zac Williams, Houli and Daniel.

Back to his damaging best.

He’s been great, getting better every week. Even his one on one contests are getting better which really is his Achilles heel

Has only had 16 'clangers' so far which equates to only 5.9% of his possessions. Only Rory Laird and Jake Kolodjashnij have a better rate (min. 5 games) across the entire comp. Using the ball beautifully.

It's funny, back in 2015 I thought he was a terrible kick. Some time towards the end of 2015 and start of 2016 he learned to take the foot off the gas for a few steps before he kicks and basically overnight his kicking became exceptional.
Spot on Scrag. He was kicking the ball too hard as well. Bailey Williams does it now and Nathan Buckley was guilty of it early in his career. You don't need to split a teammate in half when you kick it to him. The best ball users make the leading player come to the ball. JJ's balance when kicking is absolutely elite.

I think hes always been an exceptional kick. He hs been asked to execute it in an extremely difficult way.

I mentioned in another thread he and Caleb are in the top 4 players in the league for kick rating, which measures each kick against others executing the same kind of kick. Positioning of team mates and opposition players are considered too. Hurn is number 1, cant remember the other one in the top 4.

He’s definitely back to his best. I’d even go as far as saying he’s in career best form. Been really damaging lately.

There are few better sights than a confident JJ striding out of defence. In 2016 he didn’t even bother looking over his shoulder when he took possession. He was confident that as long as he was sprinting he could burst away from anyone. Great to see him thinking like that again and having confidence in himself. Such an exciting and damaging player.

He's just quietly having a ripper season, one of his best.

He is the number 1 rated player in the league for i50 score conversions. That is, around 50% of his i50s result in a score from the following possession.
