Delisted free agency is set to commence next week, with AFL clubs weighing up offers to those that have been placed on the outer in 2022.

The upcoming recruitment window will not only see players gain another chance in the AFL, but could see clubs uncover the next Tyson Stengle, who joined Geelong last November before earning his maiden All-Australian blazer this year.

With over 70 players already delisted this year, we've looked toward 10 of the most prolific players that could re-enter the competition and have named a potential club that could thrown them a lifeline.

Delisted free agency will commence 9:00am Thursday, November 3, running until 5:00pm Wednesday, November 9 before re-opening on at 9:00am Friday, November 11, running until 5:00pm Tuesday, November 15.

Essendon's midfield has been flagged as a key area of focus for Brad Scott as he begins his post at Tullamarine.

By no means a starter for the Bombers, who are sure to place greater attention toward trade recruit Will Setterfield and the top ranks of their engine room, but Anderson adds a formidable edge to Essendon's depth.

In a move that would see the Northern Territory product land at his third club, the ex-Roo and Hawk would be able to slot into a midfield, wing or flank role for Scott - a former coach he once thrived under.

Since departing Arden Street, Anderson has continued to stay in shape through training in Darwin and is looking to best place himself in the frame for a lifeline should interest arise.
