    Have we seen the best of TPJ in beast mode? Looks to be told to tone it done a bit this year, injuries don’t help of course. Not sure if the beast will come out again.

    He tries hard and I have no doubt he will hit good scores again, whether this year or a value buy next year…
    Until he shows something though risk is way to high for potential reward.

    He’s toned it down? Have you seen the penalties he’s given away this season?

    Maybe he is just trying too hard. Like his Captain!

    Need some guidance please!
    CTW order this week of Bateman,Nikora,Xerri,Sivo (Gutho,CNK,To’o) ?

    Reserves- RTS,Matters,Tapow,Milf

    Personally I’m not playing Xerri this week against raiders,i can see a sub-40 score. I like Gutho at home v broncs but bankwest is super slippery. I’ve still got CNK in front of Xerri though.

    I would probably play Finucane over Milf this week too. Just due to the slippery Bankwest surface. Hopefully someone else can give better advice though haha

    I think Carrigan got inflated minutes due to no Gillett, no Jo O and Haas playing 10mins less. In round 16 he might get a similar score but afterwards he’s a decent chance of being an ae nightmare with 20 pts. If you want a cheap fwd I’d go Kerr who should see similar mins in 16 but won’t be an ae nightmare for the run home.

    If you’re more looking at Staggs for quick cash I’d go Host instead. Looks like he’ll get 80 until Rd at least and I think will make more cash than Staggs too

    Could you please clarify what Round you think he will play 80 minutes until?

    Im not playing Him or sivo (3 weeks straight). Both Canberra and groncos defend their positions well.

    For fantasy players considering Euan Aitken, worth considering Tim Lafai’s return date. Lafai is expected to miss 5-6 weeks with a ”grade 1-2” syndesmosis injury. The Dragons hoped to have him start running this week. If he misses 5 weeks, he will return in Rd16 (2nd bye round)

    Question for Dragon fans, Does Lafai walk straight back into the team? Can he play on the wing?

    Lafai slots straight into left centre.

    But that doesn’t mean Aitken is the one that misses out. The week Lafai got injured Lomax was fullback and Aitken right centre. Whoever the worst performing player out of Aitken, Dufty and Lomax is likely to be dropped. Lomax the least likely due to goal kicking.

    This enough for me to reverse my trades. I’ve been done by Cleary and Pay, I’m not letting Mary do the same.

    Still stuck on which FRF keeper to bring in for Tatola, who scores more between now and the end of the season between TKO or AFB?

    TKO has the extra game R16 but 5RA of only 56, AFB has a 5RA of 70

    One of TKO’s scores in that 5 round average is injury affected.

    Yeah good point, take that game away and TKO’s 5RA is 73.3

    Just making sure I get all the right players on the park for this weekend (just in case something dire happens, preventing me from doing so!), and realized that my bench is similar to Adolf’s (oops, sorry, I mean ‘Freddy’s’!), with Haas, Jurbo, Cotric & Teddy! Sorry, was unable to do a Kevvie Walters-style bench! Pretty irrelevant I know, but got me chuckling!

    First trade CHN -> Bateman. Leave me with 15 trades and $222.8k ITB playing H2H. Am I missing anyone that should be in the side or do I hold the 2nd trade? Cook (Brailey) Fifita, Haas (AFB, TKo) Lolo, Murray, Jurbo (Klemmer, JFH, Surgess) Cleary (Brown) Ponga (Munster) Marsters, Bateman, Xerri, Nikora (CNK, Walker, Too) RTS (Simmo) Simmo will become Turbo/Teddy after Rd 16. He should make $100k in those three rounds which means I’ll only need $250k to upgrade. JFH I bought in literally last week – bad call from me as I was away for the long weekend.… Read more »

    Hold Keighran to SJ for another couple of weeks. He has a bit of a drop over the next two weeks.
    Surgess and/or CHN to AFB/Matterson?

    Definitely meant TKo, my bad. Matterson, I guess is someone you can bring in closer to 16. HFB definitely the weakest though.
