Lloyd Meek has been named on an extended interchange bench ahead of Fremantle's derby clash with rivals West Coast Eagles.
If selected in the final team, the SMW Rovers and Greater Western Victoria Rebels product will make his AFL debut on Sunday.
Fremantle's starting ruckman, Sean Darcy, is under an injury cloud after leaving last weekend's game after suffering a concussion.
Meek, a 200cm-plus ruckman, enjoyed a strong TAC Cup season and even played VFL games for the North Ballarat Roosters on his way to earning a spot on the Dockers' list via the 2017 draft.
Dual Brownlow Medal winner Nat Fyfe is among those left out of the Dockers' side due to a hamstring issue.
