Francis does not need a HUGE 2018. He just needs a huge preseason and to be super fit. We all know his talent, but that doesn't mean he'll put it together on game day week in week out. What he needs is to be fit enough to be definite fringe at worst. If he plays just 10 games and is in and out of the side then he is progressing. He will be 21 and have a base built for the following 10 years. Laverde and Langford need to show they can at the very least rotate through the midfield.
