    Is anyone considering Tamou? He's been a premium (or close to it) in the past. Last year he was struggling form wise to me. Did his tog drop with Hannant coming in, or was last year just a bad one for him? Seems like all that talk with him leaving the cows has died down, pretty sure I read he loves it in Tville atm. Edit: Sorry I am thinking about Sportsbet here... he was good in that. In fantasy I don't think he has starred...

    Also anyone have the subscription on fantasy (still called gold?)? If so did you notice any %ownership changes after the charity shield/allstars?

    Do I need NPRs around the 200k-250k mark to make money or is the 130k mark alright?

    I feel my 17 is extremely strong but think the potential to make money relies solely on the guys I have and not my NPRs. They might make a bit but not huge amounts

    I don't think having 70-120k excess on the pine is a good idea. I don't mind having like 25k in the bank, but usually I try to put as much juice into that starting 17 as possible. You can view excess cash not in the 17 as points lost each week.

    There's usually enough cheap players out there to make some cash from your NPR's. You have to fill each slot at the end of the day to register a score, so might as well make them as cheap as possible and hopefully they have good job security.

    Absolute no brainer. Stockwell will score more in 40 mins than Rochow in 80

    My point was though he is not a trap at all. He is a completely viable NPR at that price
    Traps are people like Leeson Au Mau where you are paying close to "gun" price for a "good" players scores

    A cow is a cow. Barba if 30k more expensive would be a trap
    No guarantee he will be a cow though. He's price is based on last years scores, there's no guarantee he'll do any better this year.

    The cheaper the better when it comes to npr's. If you aren't playing them then its money wasted.

    Thinking i might roll the dice and start with Cody Walker as a NPR. From all accounts he was great in the charity shield game and i have never rated Keary at all. I also have zero faith in Nikorima.

    Barbas price based on coming off the bench though ain't it? Surely he has money in him if named to start at FB

    Anyone have any idea on some of the return dates for some of the injured players, could start an 'NRL Casualty Ward' thread with predicted return dates etc help people out with trade out or hold type things when the season starts

    Having all 8 NPRs cost $200k is foolish, as its going to cripple your starting 17.

    I think its a good idea to have at least one good scoring NPR. If one of your starters goes down with a 1 week injury/suspension, its nice to have an 18th man that can slot into your team without hurting your scores too much.

    Other than that you want the cheapest players available that will make you money. This is unlikely to be all $130k players. You may have to spend a little bit more then minimum. You want to keep your NPR spending as low as possible though.

    Go to low or pick the wrong players and you end up with a $130k piece of deadweight that makes no money and is stuck in your team all year killing a slot.

    Could be right but Stockwell isn't guaranteed those mins once sims is back after a few weeks, while Rochow is more likely to keep his starting spot, potentially/probably all year. Factoring in a trade for Stockwell after 5 rounds makes him less appealing.

    and if he does just don't select Barba, I don't think many will have Barba unless he is starting in some capacity and I can't see him being on the wing, if he is named to start he definitely has money in him

    Maybe but GM said he'd be a cow even coming off the bench. I'd hate people to start thinking thats a good idea.

    Even assuming he gets named at FB how long is it going to last? Even in his Dally M year I didn't rate him and see him struggling to hold out Holmes.

    I'm not sure mate but I mentioned before that I think having Barba starting FB gives them better balance throughout the rest of their back line than having Holmes there who is already an outstanding young winger, if aholmes goes to FB then they are likely starting Feki and Gagan on the wings, Having Barba 1, Bird CTR and Holmes on the wing offers more IMO

    So if Hurrell doesn't make the Round 1 team list what should be my line of thinking when re-shuffling my team, should I just run with someone cheap like Copley or do a little re-shuffling to get a presumably higher scorer like Ferguson or J Roberts there?
    I mean if I go the cheapie route I can use the money to upgrade elsewhere but I'll get some rather average scores in the CTR's and upgrading there would become priority 1 but the expensive option means I'd have to cut back in my forwards.
