Breakout City #9 – Connor Rozee

Written by Chillo on February 18 2021

In this ten-part series we’ll try to find you that elusive breakout contender, the underpriced and undervalued gem who could decide your Supercoach season’s fate. Some basic criteria (which are a little flexible):

  • Player is entering their second, third or fourth season in the league,
  • Starting price somewhere between $350K and $500K, and
  • Averaged somewhere between 70 to 90 ppg the previous season.

Next up is a Power forward with an imminent role change….

Connor ROZEE (PTA)

2021 Starting Price: $377 200 forward

Scoring History (most recent first): 70.2 (14 games), 77.7 (22)

Why he will BREAKOUT this year: The most immediately impressive of Port’s recent draftees, Rozee finished runner-up to Sam Walsh in the Rising Star award in 2019. He quickly became a hot stock early in his second year when he started the season with back-to-back tons on the back of increased midfield duties, but concussion and a niggling ankle injury saw him relegated to the pocket where he struggled to make an impact in most games. Anyone who has seen the best of Rozee in those two seasons can not doubt his class though, and with a bit of luck on the injury front this season he will score well above what his starting price tag suggests he is capable of. If you’re not convinced check out any one of his highlight reels on Youtube – pure class!

Why he won’t: Still working his way towards an AFL physique and trying to build his endurance to enable him to exert his influence on games more consistently. At the moment he still fits into the category of “impact player” – will that change in his third season?

VERDICT: As good as his best footy is, his quiet games have been regulation shockers. BUT the price is right and the talent is indisputable. Could well be worth a punt at F3 for those of you who like to live dangerously!

  1. I’ve got Zak Butters sitting in my team at three moment think after his year last year he’s got more scoring potential in his role than Rozee at the moment.


    1. Rozee will make more $ than Butters
      Most people think that Butters has better scoring potential than Rozee that’s why he costs 100k more. Butters wont be a keeper and neither will Rozee but Rozee has greater potential to score equally to butters than butters has to increase his ave by 20. More $ made make for an easier trade to the one who will be your keeper.
      If ‘things’ happen in 2021 and I couldn’t afford to trade either out, my team would feel a lot safer with Rozee at F6 than it would with butters at M7.


  2. I’m trying to find a way in for him and at that price, especially given a few other mid pricers in my line up it’s tough.

    It might be between him and Milera.


  3. Just listen to the latest ” Phantons Lair” podcast which is SA based. When interviewed stated that his ankle injury from 2020 cannot be fixed by by surgery but will need to to be “managed”. Currently in my team but thats a worry


  4. He is a similar player to Robbie Gray. At some point he will turn into that classy on-baller who averages 100+ it’s just a question of when and for how long. He’s so effective forward that there is no urgent need to start pushing him through the guts more.


  5. Maybe a worry that he’ll get managed because of lingering issues from last seasons foot injury. With that said, I have an irrational love for the kid and currently have him at F3. Tricky to find the money to go to a premium in that position with the Preuss ruck option being off the table and I reckon there’s questions about everyone else in that price bracket too.
