    Tough call if Smith scores well this round.

    I upgraded the 3rd Cam (King) to him this week. I nearly didn't, as I wanted to see how things played out. I think Cam has had a decent rest of late so confident he plays 80 through till Finals, but with so many blokes stepping up over Origin it's always a worry.

    Quite a few Fantasy coaches would be counting their lucky stars after tries to their struggling players.  For me, only Tolman tonight and my analysis of his performance is FUCK DES!!!

    He was on 47 at half time, so a 14 point half.

    I guess the possession didn't help and the breaks in play.

    @my tv broke wrote:Well you all laughed when I got Hunt and you were right. 35 with 6 missed tackles and an error (not one of those was a miss that led to metres gained for the dogs). To be honest I thought he looked alright and did roll his ankle early. The game did not suit scoring at all, fuck all kick metres, not much actual defense, and didnt get a try assist for tge pass to kodi which in any given day usually is one. Ah well.

    He looked pretty good IMO. The miss tackles shouldn't surprise you with Hunt though.

    20 minutes into that second half Broncos had 73% possesion and they were scoring so yeah, his opportunities were so limited by just how the game went.

    Don't matter how or when they score them, I'll take a 62 and the chance my captain change to Manners still pays off

    [quote="Klemhammer"]McGuire 24 points with a try and hunt 35 with a try... only positive is Des is one step to being gone [/quote

    They cannot score more the 14 points on average which just will not cut it. Hasler seems to be in denial. Woods and Foran
    next season is not enough. Hasler has to change his strategy of Tolman and Graham mindlessly taking it up for sweet FA.
    Not looking good for next season and avoid Bulldogs players if your a fantasy manager.

    I too upgraded Brailey to Cam this week and put the C on him. I also think he's had more than enough rest over the origin period, I think he'll be sweet over the next 7 weeks. Broncs winning, if Roosters and Sharks win and stay on their tails, even more reason that he won't rest.

    How do we think Pearce will go with no Friend, Gordon or Cordner.

    At some point in the first half, they accidentally gave McCullough 200 run metres - it got corrected not long after, but at one point he was on 60+ during the first half.

    I couldn't help myself...  I pulled the trigger and used one of my trades Embarassed

    Elliot to Lane

    I was going to look at Elliot to Cartwright in a few rounds to get some cash but decided, why wait if Lane is getting the points and Cartwright might continue his rubbish scores

    Happy with my decision after Elliot scored 29 points in last night's game Very Happy

    Cordner is almost back right? Either way, I'd still imagine Pearce goes pretty well. Obviously the Roosters struggling may reduce Pearce's ability to get attacking stats and thus this might affect his avg, but it'll probably still be a pretty damn good average.

    That said, I've personally passed on Pearce for the significantly cheaper Tedesco this week.
