    Have only had a quick look as having pretty much the worst morning at work in the history of forever. But Rabbits best byes again? Myabe Eels and Sharks looking good.

    Lone Scout did a quick write-up:

    Fantasy winners

    Non-Origin players from the Rabbitohs and Eels: These are the only players who have the chance to play in all three major bye rounds – Round 12, Round 15 and Round 18. Fantasy coaches playing for overall points will need to keep an eye out for any quality buys from these clubs after the first dozen rounds of the season. Both clubs also play the bulk of their games at home in the second half of the season, making their players even better prospects for trading in before Origin.

    Non-Origin players from the Bulldogs, Sharks, Storm and Roosters: The players play in two of the three major bye weeks so will also be valuable for teams chasing overall points. Expect to see internationals James Graham and Jesse Bromwich and former NSW skipper Paul Gallen in a lot of Fantasy teams in the middle part of the season.

    Origin players from the Broncos, Raiders, Titans, Sea Eagles, Knights, Cowboys, Panthers, Dragons, Warriors and Wests Tigers: The fact that 10 clubs make this section shows that the NRL has done well in limiting the impact on State of Origin on the Telstra Premiership campaign, with all of these clubs losing their Origin players for just one match during the season. Of course those stars could also be rested in the week after an Origin game, but the most durable big guns are a strong chance of turning out for their club in 23 of their 24 regular season matches.

    Fantasy losers

    Origin players from the Rabbitohs and Eels: Greg Inglis will play just two NRL matches from Round 12 to Round 18 next season, while any Eel who gets called up to Origin level (like Michael Jennings) will play just three games between Round 12 and Round 19. This also makes incumbent NSW players and Rabbioths stars Adam Reynolds and Robbie Farah risky propositions in the middle part of the season.

    Rabbitohs backline players: With arguably the toughest draw in the NRL in 2017 and five of their first seven games away from home, the South Sydney backline could struggle to score points compared to previous seasons. The flipside is their big men may get more defensive work than usual – potentially good news for the Burgess brothers.

    Interesting, and frustrating. Lone Scout probably over analysing a bit, but who doesn't do that when it comes to Fantasy.

    What's up party people. I've been a bit AWOL recently, but just checking in to say I'll be down in Melbourne tonight for the FFA Cup final. Not that any of you cars about the A-League, but I'll be there.

    In fantasy news, now that the draw is out might get first draft of the 2017 planner out in the coming weeks. Any feature requests this year?
