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.

4. Liam Stocker


Unlikely to take minutes away from the likes of Shai Bolton, Dustin Martin or Jack Graham in midfield, Stocker can be acquired as a backup option for Damien Hardwick or even on the flanks at Punt Road, if required.

With the Tigers turning to a new midfield group from 2023, Stocker could complement the likes of incoming stars Tim Taranto and Jacob Hopper as a dashing outlet in the centre of the ground should he reach the potential that has been thrust upon him ahead of his selection by the Blues.

The Tigers managed to get the best out of fringe players in the form of Noah Cumberland, Ben Miller and Jack Ross across the course of 2022 and could look to do the same with Stocker's services.

Another move to contemplate for the Tigers is potentially revolutionising Stocker's role in the game, as seen with Dan Rioli's switch to defence for this year.
