    Do you think Sportsdeck are going to do the NFL version like they did last year? If so, how soon do you think it will open?

    Yeah I was thinking Taupau but I also have the Surgess problem. He's playing injured and has come off the field and not come back on 2 of the past 3 weeks because of his ribs. I'm just not sure which FRF/2RF is the best to bring in since I have most of the best ones and JTurbo/Papalii's form hasn't been great lately.

    I'm in the same boat, I've got exactly the same pack as you. I guess it comes down to gut feel, or maybe which player you like best. I'm considering gambling on Fifita to bounce back, or otherwise its JTurbo for me.

    Smith
    JDB, Vaughan
    Gallen, Mannering, Taumalolo
    Cleary, Walker
    Crichton, J. Thompson
    Roberts, Trbojevic, Edwards

    4 reserves are McInnes, Surgess, Brown and Taupau.
    Leftovers are Twal, Lane, SJ, Frawley, Fuimaono, L. Brown, Whare and Dufty.

    I was thinking SJ > Pearce/ DCE and bench Walker but not sure on the other trade. Maybe I should bring Teddy/Rapana/Munster in and bench one of my WFB's? Or maybe bring someone like Gillett in whose been in great form of late? I can get JTurbo but his form has been off a bit lately.

    Gillet or Lowe my 2 pod picks

    Yeah I'm leaning towards Gillett, his form is great. He's also getting close to scoring more than once every game.

    Just noticed its open, BUT, no prizes that I can see. I enjoy fantasy but gotta have something to play for. Last year I was 2 points of the $1000 prize.

    390 from 6 with C still to come. Best start to a round I've had in ages after some rubbish scores for several weeks. Time for Fifita to pull finger!!

    Have they tapered down over the last couple of years?  What was last year?  Hopefully it's not a sign they are pulling up stumps.

    Last year the main prize was $1000. Can't remember what the Eliminator was worth.

    I got that feeling with the NRL prizes this year. I'd be surprised if they have more than next NRL season in them.

    I've won a few prizes in various leagues over the last couple years and they've been great. Just deposit the cash in my bank.

    Gutted they aren't paying for the NFL though. I was banking on a prize in that one.

    I reckon they are pulling back a bit. Their bread and butter is daily leagues now surely??

    1090 for me this week, which should get me safely into the top 10.

    Could have had 1167 with perfect sub and captaincy selection, but can't complain. Hopefully updates push me over 1100/

    Good stuff Milchy, hopefully you can finish up with $150.

    Seems like a high scoring round, I got 1,019.
