Ottens played Reserves in 1998 but suffered a left knee injury in the middle of the season and missed the rest of the year. He made his senior debut in the opening match, playing four matches in a row before being dropped. Weeks later he seriously injured his right knee in a reserves game at Princes Park and did not play another senior game. After returning he injured his other knee while playing for Sandringham in June 2000 and was delisted. He returned to Glenelg and remained there for the 2001 and 2002 seasons.
