Watts played 16 games in 2017, averaging 15.7 disposals and kicking 22 goals.
He missed rounds 14 – 17 due to a hamstring injury and was dropped from the senior side after the Demons’ loss to GWS in Round 20, missing the next two weeks, before returning to the team in Round 23.
He has played a total of 153 matches for Melbourne since making his debut in Round 11, 2009 against Collingwood.
