    This was bloody handy for many in helping to get some unbiased opinions on their team going and helping to see that some picks were more with your heart than with your head

    Nonsense, I think you're highly qualified.

    Make sure you let everyone know that my team trumps all.

    Trying to swap Hess for Chambers/milne via SMat but can't find the cash, Ideally I want dual FR fro Surgess/JDB so I can swap them into the FR at Gurgess expense, switch SMat into the 2RF and bring in Chambers/Milne

    HOK: Just take note that King scored terribly when not getting big minutes. So ideally he needs to be playing 50+ minutes to have a fair crack at making cash. Milchcow has done a really good breakdown on him that has put me off of him slightly.

    FRF:
    Vaughan I think is great when he gets minutes. That is the problem when it comes to the Dragons pack. Last year the breakout star was meant to be Leeson Ah Mau but he just didn't make the minutes due to the logjam that is the Dragons forward pack. Though it has eased up in some sense. If Vaughan can make 50+ minutes a game, which is what he needs ideally to push himself into that more low-tier gun status then he is a great pick. Though with guys like Packer, Ah Mau, Host and Lui being there it could make it easier. Though I could see Mathews, Sims, Marketo joining that forward rotation with Frizell, Thompson, De Belin in the 2RF. It is just risky because his minutes are so up in the air. JWH and Gurgess could return to gun status so are decent picks. Hard to see P. Kaufusi improving too much on his 20 minutes last year. He could maybe get 30 minutes but he would definitely be a slow burn at making cash.

    2RF:
    Kevin Proctor was averaging 70 minutes last season. If Kenny Bromwich can transition from 40 minutes to 70 minutes that would be a sizable jump and enough for him to push into gun status. However that is almost double his playing time last season. I am not saying he can't do it, just that it is a leap of faith with a stacked backrow. I also personally don't like Hess due to his price. I just don't know how much I see his minutes increasing this year. He could get consistent minutes, but his scores from last season are all boosted by tries. In 8 games he scored a try in 4 of them. Not saying he can't keep that strike rate, but he just looks too risky for his price tag of $267k.

    HLF: I really like the Maloney pick if he can kick on his scores a little to where he previously has been at. He is around 10 points underpriced. Though I do believe Chad Townsend has had that impact on others before. IIRC.

    CTR: Copy and pasting Sione Mata'Utia - S. Mata'Utia could become a keeper in the CTR position it looks like a better option to start him in the 2RF and look at guys like Hurrell, Whare, Lafai, Chambers and hell even Gagai potentially. This isn't a must do move, but it could be a way of replacing Hess and downgrading him to someone else who can make some cash. I like the rest of it, there are also guys like Kelly, Scott and Olive potentially who could be cheapies you could look at if you want to start Whare.

    WFB: Not convinced on Valentine Holmes? Literally the only issue, question or concern.

    Also I need to start compiling a list of issues/write ups I do for individual players. Then I can just copy and paste it all and adjust as necessary. Would save time.

    Any chance JDB or Surgess get added FRF dual 2RF before the season starts?

    trying to swap Hess for Chambers/milne via SMate but can't find the cash

    HOK: What are you going to do if a Bench Hooker is named for the Dragons? Other than that concern if he plays the 80 minutes he scores like an absolute monster.

    FRF: Daniel Safiti is interesting, if he can push for more minutes this season he is capable of scoring well. He had a PPM of 0.9 last season and only went over 1ppm 3 times and only 1 try in the game. So the guy looks to have solid base stats to keep up the PPM. The only issue is he does seem to miss tackles now and then. Almost 2 per game, but that is something after a full year he may have improved on. With all the changes to the Knights forward pack (Sims brothers departing, Pauli Pauli injury, Robbie Rochow leaving. It opens the door for him to play 50-60 minutes which could result on a score of 40 - 55 point average. (Note: I did what I think is the absolute worst he would score on average under those minutes and what is the best he can look to achieve consistently.) I also think there is no risk as it is likely he will get at least 50 minutes and it is very unlikely his PPM drops below 0.75PPM from his stellar 0.9PPM. Which even with a significant drop wouldn't make him lose cash.

    2RF: Kevin Proctor was averaging 70 minutes last season. If Kenny Bromwich can transition from 40 minutes to 70 minutes that would be a sizable jump and enough for him to push into gun status. However that is almost double his playing time last season. I am not saying he can't do it, just that it is a leap of faith with a stacked backrow. Although for safety sake if he jumped to 55 minutes. Which is still a decent size bump to depend on he would improve his scores by around 10 points on average. Which wouldn’t push him to a true gun status, but would be a viable long-term keeper who will make you cash to make the trade up easier. He also shouldn’t lose cash. So you are hoping for a lot if you want him to be a gun, but he looks alright to be a mid-tier guy who you can make some money and be traded up. Just don’t expect 50 points games.

    HLF: Taylor is a superstar and with Elgey beside him he will do the bulk of the kicking. While Peats and Hayne will play a role and take some kick meters away. They should also help accent Taylors attack. He has the potential to be a consistent 45-50 point scorer this year if not more. The only factor floating around is Tyrone Roberts. When Roberts plays it hampers Ash Taylors scores to a degree. Ashley Taylor only scored over 50 points once when Roberts played out of 17 games (Which involved a try), meanwhile he scored 50 points in 2 out of the 4 games when Tyrone Roberts was out. (None involving a try.) This is all because Tyrone Roberts does a lot of kicking, which Kane Elgey does a lot less of. If Tyrone Roberts is on the bench or not in the 17, then Ashley Taylor is your man. If Tyrone Roberts is starting in the halves, look elsewhere or expect mediocre scores.

    CTR: S. Mata'Utia could become a keeper in the CTR position it looks like a better option to start him in the 2RF and look at guys like Idris, Hurrell, Whare, Lafai, Chambers and hell even Gagai potentially. Then you have cheapies like Scott, Jennings, Kelly, and potentially J. Olive currently who could be rookie options if you wanted to replace a 2RF rookie.

    WFB: Running with Slater in your 17. I currently have him, but not in a starting spot. But hey live life on the edge right?

    Overall:
    You already want to swap Hess out for Mata'Utia which makes perfect sense. How much cash do you have left in the bank? Have you looked at other alternative instead of Chambers that may interest you? Otherwise you could look at swapping out Taylor if my spiel regarding Roberts puts you off him for a cheaper option.
