    I personally couldn't bear not having Tedesco as modern day super gun, but I otherwise love this team! Old school forwards focus

    Is Bateman going to be around until Origin? I kinda need some Round 12 downgrade fodder...can anyone suggest a better option if not him?

    He's at least a little interesting as his lower grade form and wraps would suggest he will do a job off he bench.

    Papali should play origin too, so will get his chance

    Who'll play in the Broncos 2rf without Parker, Thaiday and Gillett?

    Offa started at lock last year and they'll probably move Blair to the back row and play the whole game

    Would still get 6 rounds of Superted action in, but then he misses 4 out of 8 rounds.

    WFB currently are RTS, Mansour and one of Barba/Mitchell/Bowen

    Even if he got knocked out Ted doesn't look like scoring under 50 at the moment...But a well selected pair of solid scorers who only miss 2 games each over the same period should Nett you more. And that is assuming Ted can keep it up. I'd be using Ted as a reverse POD if I didn't have him by now personally.

    What GM said. Lima is due back week 11 I think which would put it roughly around the same time as Sia. However then we go into the origin period which IF and its a big IF, NSW have any sense, Vaughan and Boyd have to be at least in consideration. If we lose Papa and one of them then he should get a jersey even with the return of Sia and Lima.

    It's definitely no certainty though and he may not actually get all that many minutes anyway (we could see Tapine get a longer run or even some of the other forwards get a few more minutes). I'm sure Stick only played him for 10min or less for a few games last year. If you want a safer option it may be better holding off to see what comes up closer to the period.

    Is Caleb Timu healthy?

    Oh I didn't realise Ray Thompson is due back at round 10 a lot sooner than I thought. I'll pass on Javid

    I only really need the downgrade to finance an upgrade from LAM to Fensom/Ma'u. I feel like Fensom has bottomed out so I need to get him in this week (plus the points jump from LAM to him would be greatly appreciated). The downgrade to a Round 12 rookie was just going to be a bonus as opposed to a necessity

    Is it best to hold Evans and Grant and perhaps Saifiti until an obvious cashie emerges?

    Don't really see there prices fluctuating to much maybe best to sit and see

    I ditched Evans last week but I'm definitely holding Saifiti in the interim

    It is killing me not having Tedesco but at the moment I don't think I can justify paying nearly $550,000 for him, his value will come back down as well as his scores...surely? Risky not getting him now because if he continues to pump out the big scores and such high ownership it's easy to get left behind...I've got my Teddy voodoo doll ready now and will grab him after origin, when his price drops...I hope

    Tedesco is definitely going to be in your team at some stage. You probably lose some points around origin.

    At his price I can't see any good reason to pick him other than being a captain option, which right now he has a legit claim at being the no.1 choice (particularly against the Knights this week it could be scary). Without the captain consideration, as an outright scorer, I think there are better value picks atm like Fensom or RTS.

    You've got a pretty strong WFB line, right now I see Mitchell/Barba as low risk in your 17. A lot of people are running with them. Depends on the rest of your team though.

    I need a downgrade in the centres, halves or wfb's; and the only one's I see are Kennar and Bowen. I've taken the latter for now, anyone else got ideas?

    Not many of us stuck with all three still I reckon; and making upgrades elsewhere this week. Grant and Saifiti doing what I hoped, Evans the only real letdown so he will potentially go for Fensom via JDB next week. Will wait and see what happens with the Raiders and Knights packs this week with the changes to both.
