The only Crow to to finish with 100+ fantasy points in the loss, the 24 year-old closes out the month having averaged 111.4 points an appearance in May and currently his team's No. 1 for fantasy score per game (108.18) in 2021.
Scores twice in win
MAdelaide Crows
May 22, 2021
Keays scored two goals to go with 34 disposals (17 kicks, 17 handballs) while also making seven tackles during Saturday's 96-95 win over Melbourne.
ANALYSIS
Keays has scored over 100 fantasy points in five of the last seven rounds and was narrowly second in disposals behind Paul Seedsman in this match. While Seedsman took until this game to put up a bigger fantasy number, Keays already put up as many as 156 points in the win over Hawthorn, so he may have the most scoring potential for the Crows as they get back to winning ways.

MAdelaide Crows
May 17, 2021
Keays procured 32 disposals, six clearances, five marks, three tackles, two goal assists and a behind Sunday as Adelaide fell to Gold Coast 106-76 at Optus Stadium.

Adelaide suffered its fifth defeat in as many showings on Sunday, yet Keays shone, netting personal-bests for handballs (16) and disposals and posting his first multiple goal assist performance of the year. The league's No. 20 for total disposals (243) has now topped 90 fantasy points in every the Crows have played this season, and with four 100+ showings in his last six appearances, currently finds himself ranked in the top 25 for fantasy score per game (105 points) amongst all AFL midfielders.
Best on ground in loss
MAdelaide Crows
May 1, 2021
Keays recorded 28 disposals (14 kicks, 14 handballs) in addition to making five tackles and taking 7 marks during Saturday's 106-39 loss to GWS.
ANALYSIS
Keays has been one of the most valuable fantasy options for the Crows after losing in back-to-back weeks. With Rory Laird struggling to put up huge numbers without Rory Sloane next to him, Keays looks most likely to remain in his leading role for the time being.
Even better in loss
MAdelaide Crows
April 25, 2021
Keays scored one goal to go with 31 disposals (15 kicks, 16 handballs) while also making eight marks and 13 tackles during Sunday's 102-99 loss to Hawthorn.
ANALYSIS
Keays hit 31 disposals for the second straight week but made even more impressive contributions through a season-highs in marks, tackles and clearances. While it doesn't seem likely that some of Adelaide's bigger names will struggle as much as they did in this game, Keays stands to benefit from tighter contests if he can continue to play as efficiently as he did against the Hawks.
