Fremantle midfielder Connor Blakely says his struggling AFL team are offended by suggestions they are tanking, saying it's ridiculous to suggest the club would not try to win.

The Dockers sit in last spot on the table with a 0-10 record, leading some pundits to speculate the team may tank in order to secure the No.1 draft pick.

But Blakely says the players are doing their utmost to win, and they're desperate to taste victory in Saturday night's clash with Essendon at Domain Stadium.
