    Pearce, Cleary, Walker, A Reynolds or DCE

    It would have to be a round 12 player so it's a choice between Walker & A-Rey & I reckon C. Walker.
    If I was to choose the best one from that list I'd go DCE.

    Just did a full reversal on my trades:
    Yates > Leary
    Guth > ARey

    This leaves me with 165k ITB.

    Smith (C), Brailey (R)
    McGuire, Graham, FKaufusi (R), Matagi
    Whitehead, JDB, Surgess, Leary (R), CHN, Stone
    Norman, ARey, Hampton (R), Elgey
    Cotric, Suli, Kelly, Talakai
    Ponga, RTS, Slats, Abbey, Uate

    ARey like a Ferrari, will frequently spend time in the workshop. Pearce and DCE have been a part of rep footy recently. Cleary all good but not the highest performer.

    I'd pick Walker

    ARey and DCE are at a good price now. I like ARey if he doesn't play origin and can stay injury free.

    But really its a bit of guesswork/pot luck as to who does well.

    The only way I can get Crichton in is via Sironen.

    It feels a bit sideways for me - trading a definate 80min edge 2RF for a potentially 80 edge 2RF.

    How much are we expecting Crichton to average moving forward - 40? 50? 60?

    Sironen's 3 games average is 48 and still has a little money to be made...

    Foran has traditionally not been a good fantasy scorer. Long term you are looking at around a 40 average, which would make him slightly overpriced right now

    So the main question would be whether the move to the Warriors will provide a positive effect on his scoring. Hard to say based on just 2 (admittedly well scoring) rounds. But I think he'll drop a little from his high start

    That bing said we are approaching SOO which traditionally mean the Warriors play depleted teams and win ......

    Something from the other thread re Milf as 18th man

    @Welshy wrote:I like Milf as a player in my final 17 or 18th man, especially at his current price and without BHunt. Late season he could be the difference between a 970 and 1000 pointer

    I had Milf all last year as 3rd half behind Cleary and BHunt to close out the season, and he doesn't work well as an 18th man since Broncos play early almost every week. He usually had to creep into the 17 and thankfully he finished okay.. usually 40s I think. After his boom start last year, the rest was pretty painful though.

    He definitely looks to have some upside with BHunt out, but I think Macca will continue to kick long often, and KNik will probably try to help out.. Don't really remember Milf kicking long much.

    Milf's averaging 146 KM so far this season if that interests anyone.

    He has to be in the origin team. Therefore I cannot purchase him.

    Whether they go maloney/Arey or pearce/Arey yet to be seen. Would have to be one of those combos though.

    Konrad Hurrell almost certain to miss this weekend due to the recurrence of an ankle injury

    The main reason for getting Crichton is his tackle breaking fending off player skills

    Sorry about the link size.... but it is now confirmed J Bird off to the Broncos on a 3 year deal. Gutted as a Sharks fan. We gave him his start, introduced him to Origin and topped it off with a premiership. Amazing how ur fave player can now become a has been.

    Back to fantasy guys... just wanted to get that out there.

    Read yesterday that Bennett wants Bird as a ball playing lock. Mcguire back to prop.

    Blair will probably move on (as a bronx fan I'd be sad to see him go). Reckon he might end up back in Melbourne.

    How much has he signed for, or what are the rumors? Dollar to value ratio I don't think he is a good fit for the broncos at all.

    Reportedly 700k per year. Seems like a reasonable deal to me. I don't think he's been bought to play in the halves. CourierMail said yesterday that Bennetts plan is to play him as a ball playing lock. Mcguire would be going back to prop.

    I read an article yesterday saying we will be going to market for a half in a months time.

    Turner averaged 60 mins playing in 2nd Row between Rounds 1 and 5, now Crichton has taken his spot, surely we are expecting the same?

    No way Farah and Cook share 80 mins, they are going to be on the field at the same time most weeks.

    He also averaged 64 mins last season with McInnes and Cook.

    Looks like two quality hookers in the line up sacrifices a 2nd rower.
