Whitfield (liver) is still questionable to be ready for the start of the regular season, according to Michael Whiting of AFL.com.
ANALYSIS
Whitfield was the top fantasy option for the Giants last season and would be a sizable loss if he's not ready to start the 2021 Premiership. Fortunately, he still has a couple more weeks to improve his fitness before the opening match against St. Kilda.

Sidelined indefinitely

February 5, 2021
Whitfield will be sidelined indefinitely due to a bruised liver.
ANALYSIS
Whitfield had a strong finish to the 2020 season, but he could miss time to begin the 2021 campaign due to his injury. He doesn't have a timetable for his return and will be evaluated on a week-by-week basis.
Season over despite strong finish

September 18, 2020
Whitfield scored one behind and logged 28 disposals (16 kicks, 12 handballs) in addition to making 13 marks during Friday's 82-30 loss to St. Kilda.
ANALYSIS
Whitfield had one of the more impressive finishes to the season with no fewer than 25 disposals made in four of the last five Rounds. In the end though, he was practically the only reliable option from Giants as they staggered to the finale and ended up losing the game that would have helped give them a chance of making the finals.
Huge effort in loss

September 8, 2020
Whitfield collected 29 disposals (21 kicks, eight handballs) in addition to making five marks and completing seven tackles during Tuesday's 59-49 loss to Adelaide.
ANALYSIS
Whitfield has mostly been exceptional all season and stepped up in a huge way only for his team to lose to a recently surprising Crows club and put their finals hopes in jeopardy. Whitfield will need to stay sharp for his club to make the finals, and luckily he'll only play two strong teams in Melbourne and Saint Kilda as he tends to play his best games against the best opponents.
Collects 25 disposals in loss

August 23, 2020
Whitfield logged 25 disposals (12 kicks, 13 handballs) and made eight marks during Sunday's 61-49 loss to West Coast Eagles.
ANALYSIS
Whitfield is another productive part of Giants despite having one once in their last seven matches. He only managed 14 disposals in the last match against Sydney, but has hovered more consistently around 25 disposals over his last nine Rounds.
Logs 29 disposals in win

August 2, 2020
Whitfield collected 29 disposals (18 kicks, 11 handballs) and made 13 marks as well as providing two assists during Sunday's 61-35 win over Gold Coast.
ANALYSIS
Whitfield is truly an impressive option through his involvement with the footy and his high total of marks. In this case, he benefitted from the control his team held in the second half to dominate the match. He'll have some favorable matches to continue his production in the coming weeks.
