The Fremantle Dockers are still searching for their first piece of AFL silverware.
Excluding the two newest franchises, GWS and Gold Coast, Fremantle is the only club in the AFL to not have won an AFL Grand Final. The Dockers played in their first decider in 2013 after entering the competition in 1995 but lost to Hawthorn.
Although the Dockers boast a two-time Brownlow Medal winner in Nathan Fyfe, a lack of team success saw Justin Longmuir replace Ross Lyon as head coach at the end of the 2019 season.
Can Longmuir and Fyfe lead Freo back to finals football in 2021? Let’s take a look at the latest footy odds for the year ahead.

Best Fremantle Dockers bets for the 2021 AFL season
Where are the best Fremantle bets in the AFL futures markets for 2021?
Click on the tabs below to get more analysis on these markets:
- Fremantle will not win the 2021 AFL premiership. As he did at St Kilda, Ross Lyon left his successor in Perth with an ordinary, imbalanced list that will take years to fix. There were some good signs in 2020, but Justin Longmuir has a lot of work ahead of him to get this side up to premiership-winning standard.
- A lot has to go right for the Dockers to push for a finals spot, but it isn’t out of the question. If their seasoned veterans continue to perform and their young guns keep progressing, they could surprise a few.
- Nat Fyfe has won the Brownlow Medal twice and will start this season among the favourites once again. It does not matter how well or how poorly Freo perform; if Fyfe plays most games and avoids suspension, he will be right up there.
Fremantle players to watch in 2021
He might be best to known to some as the bloke who had his mouth caved in by West Coast’s Andrew Gaff, but Andrew Brayshaw is one of the rising stars of this Fremantle side. He lifted his disposal average from 16.9 to 19.9 per game last season despite the shortened format, so he could be poised for a big one in 2021.
There was stiff competition for the AFL Rising Star in 2020, but Caleb Serong was the standout in a field that included the likes of Izak Rankine, Kysaiah Pickett, Max King, Tom Green and Matt Rowell. If he delivers more of the same in 2021, Freo might go alright.
David Mundy will be 36 years old by the end of the 2021 AFL season. Will his age start to show as this campaign wears on, or will Mundy to continue to perform to the high standards that have made him one of the league’s most reliable midfielders over the past decade?
