Young Crow Josh Rachele has also taken a dip, with plenty of movement occurring among our top six rookies after eight rounds.
Criteria: For our Rookie Rankings, we are selecting players who have made their debut this season. Other players who may still be eligible for a Rising Star nomination but have already made their debut prior to the 2022 season will not be considered.

Round 8 Honourable Mentions
Two games and two honourable mentions for the young Blues onballer, who is quickly staking his claim for a spot in our Rookie Rankings for the coming weeks.
A memorable debut for the young Dockers forward, who joined the first-kick first-goal club on Friday night. Was impressive as a leading target in attack for Fremantle and is likely to hold his spot despite an anticipated wave of inclusions.
6. Josh Rachele (-3)
The Crows' livewire has seen a drop in form from his blistering opening month in the league, with Sunday's outing against the Blues seeing the small forward once again limited in attack.
Rachele booted 1.2 in the 48-point loss at Marvel Stadium and was costly with ball-in-hand, amassing just the four effective disposals for the day.
The sole goal was Rachele's first since Round 5, with the teenager kept quiet in the last three weeks.
With the likes of Carroll and Hayes pressing their case, Rachele will be hoping for a stronger outing against Brisbane this weekend.
