    Massive walls of text following, but this is the starting salary for everyone that played a game this year, based on this years pricing system.

    Obviously they might change the salary cap, scoring system or any number of things to make this useless, but here is a starting point.

    Will take a few posts to put it all down, as its too long for one post (and it will help us get to page 51 quicker)

    When Jaelen Feeney was named at hooker, someone here suggested his average of 13.4 from five 80 minute games must be one of the worst fantasy outputs ever

    Brett Stewart managed an amazing 13.09 this year from 11 games.
    Technically they weren't all 80 minute games, Brett only played 44 minutes in round 8 and removing that game from his average gets him just above Feeney.

    But given Stewarts reputation that is terrible output indeed. Especially considering that until this year, Brett had always been a quality NRL player, even if that didn't translate into fantasy scores.

    Looking at the lists the ones that stick out for me based on what's happening between now and next year:

    Robbie Rochow
    Coen Hess
    Billy Slater
    Dean Whare
    Jarryd Hayne
    Jai Arrow/Jaydn Su'a

    Probably loads more that I've missed or could do some more research on.

    What does next year hold for Ballin and Snowden? Are they both retiring?

    If fit, Ballin is likely to be starting hooker for the Tigers, sharing time with Jacob Liddle.
    He seems to have a troublesome knee so who knows how that will work out.

    Coen Hess isn't about to crack a starting birth for the Cowboys is he? Who is moving on next year (or who is  he overtaking) to give him a start?

    Hardaker will be cheap if he can get himself a starting spot (not sure if that will happen given he can't start now and Whare/Hiku are both to return)

    Hardaker not signed anywhere yet for 2017

    Think Liddle will get the nod no matter what happens with Ballin

    I expect Liddle to be in the 17, but would think he'd share with someone, at least to start the year.

    Obviously they might change the salary cap, scoring system or any number of things to make this useless, but here is a starting point.

    Will take a few posts to put it all down, as its too long for one post (and it will help us get to page 51 quicker)

    Thanks Milch... this is gold! In Love

    Nice work Milch, providing Fantasy use the same magic number as they did at the start of this year then these prices are still good regardless of what salary cap is used next year, providing that this years salary cap of $6.8m (I think) is used in calculations.

    If they change the salary cap, they'll likely change the magic number along with it.

    They might also change the minimum price for players, change how they discount players with < 10 games and/or just manually intervene in the case of players like Hayne/Slater to make them more expensive.

    Lots of unknowns, but its been relatively constant the past few years so hopefully should be somewhat reliable.

    I wonder if they'll change the scoring system. I wouldn't expect major tweaks, but they might add in a new stat or 2. Forced drop outs being one that I think would be well received.

    I wouldn't mind if they did tweak the magic number and make it a bit harder and take longer to achieve the "perfect" team. The last 2 years the MN has remained almost the same, so they might be satisfied with it now and not change it any more. Forced drop outs would be a good option I reckon.

    If they decide to manually give Hayne and Slater a price then that goes against what they have done in the past so I'm hoping they adhere to their own rules, not that me or you will benefit because anyone serious about playing the game will no doubt have them in their team.

    The ability to get the perfect team is dictated not so much by magic number, but by the number of rookies (or rookie priced players)  that establish themselves in first grade.

    Even if you raised the magic number, guys like Cody Walker, Nathan Cleary, Jackson Hastings, etc would still have made a tonne of cash and everybody would have plenty of funds to upgrade for the run home. Raising the MN would make people more expensive, but it would also make price rises for these guys larger too so there wouldn't be as big a net effect.

    If you want to make it harder to get a perfect team together then you'd need a major overhaul of how the money system works. 
    You could make prices subjective rather than objective. If you know some rookie is going to be his team's starting halfback from round 1, then price him accordingly. Don't just chuck him in at min price and give everyone free money. Or take a leaf out of premierleague fantasy and only give people half the profits when they sell. I'm sure there are other ways they could work it if they have the desire. 
    I'm not sure there is mass desire for change though - I think a lot of people would complain if they changed the status quo, more than would appreciate the changes, at least at first.

    I didn't really elaborate too well, I should have said raise the MN at the beginning of the season, make less keepers affordable, then during the season lower the MN used in price calculations so prices don't rise as high so quickly. Sure if a player like Cleary has a good average he deserves to be priced in the upper echelon of keepers but it should take him longer to get there.

    I agree, we don't want to see massive changes but a subtle change to the MN both at the beginning and during the season would be the simplest way to do it. The ideal team should be in reach of everyone but it should occur closer to round 26 not around the end of origin time.

    Just reduce the number of trades and it'll be harder to get the perfect team and also lead to a lot more variation
