    Napa because I considered him the is the most value for player I could afford, JBrom had to go with the reshuffle

    Napa 13.5 points down on his 2016 average and 9 points down on his 2015 average

    His minutes were down but with Roosters pack this year I'm backing him to get back to 50+ minutes and just a general improvement on last year mate

    Can't see GI going below 35 and with his scoring potential I don't want to miss out mate

    Whoah. I just had some freaky deja vu. I think I've asked you that before. Did you just answer off the top of your head, or did you copy and paste a previous answer?

    Sorry for the onslaught but I've been saving them up...

    - Not many people bringing Jason Taumalolo's name forward, is he looking at a downgrade in minutes or something?

    - Alvaro getting talked up a fair bit too, he seemed too have a good ppm last year but not sure if he will get enough gametime to hit his 39 BE?

    - JDB or N.Brown?

    - Also curious on the opinions of Eisenhuth and Twal from Tigers?

    - Lastly I can only afford two out of the three following, who is it advised I pick; Joseph Manu, Latrell Mitchell and David Nofoaluma

    Any help is appreciated, Cheers!

    Hope Pookus and Mulvy enjoyed their 2 man page-52 party.

    I enjoyed Cloverfield Paradox, but its bedtime now

    WHAT THE FUCK! After reading this I googled it. I've been googling "The God Particle" once a week for the last 12 months. Last week they hinted that Netflix may stream it after the last year of delaying it's release. Even the Cinemas were starting to show it as "Coming Soon".

    Glad they put Cloverfield in the title.

    Lolo is a gun and will remain so. But after such a good year and add Scott back and McLean, so people perceive value better elsewhere. I expect I'll pick him up later. Alvaro in my team at the moment but he's probably my biggest concern. But I like watching him play, goes for about 1ppm, should be starting this year and plays rd 13. JDB and Brown are both big minute, big workrate locks, but Brown is possibly undervalued due to three or four bench games at the start of last season and I think one or two injury games and plays rd 13. Don't know much about the Tigers. I like Mitchell out of the last bit, should be goal kicker.

    So best player options under $575k. Assuming I have cover in every position.

    Also everyones thoughts on M. Dufty. I know he only had one big game last season. But with the preseason and trails he could be a good shout on the cheap.

    What are the thoughts behind them all?

    J. Manu - He is priced at 27 points, and could be pushed out to the wing with Tedesco coming in. Not much long term value unless you think he will go on a try scoring hot streak off the back of Tedesco and Cronk.

    L. Mitchell - Unless he has a big year with a boatload of tries and TB's (Last year he had 13 tries and averaged 4 TBs a game.) Again he has potential to score big points with 6 games over 50 points. He also had 7 games with less than 30 points. He just comes across to inconsistent for the season. If you think he will start the season on fire. You could ride him to a nice cash bump, and kicking goals will help his consistency if he gets the nod.

    D. Nofoaluma - One of the best wingers in the game. That doesn't mean he avoids those quiet sub par scores. But certainly the best pick of the three imo.

    I would take Nofo if you really want him, and maybe look elsewhere for the others. Unless you are high on Latrell. But with Ponga, Hayne, Hiku, and Inglis. Means you have plenty of options on the cheap.

    On JDB, Taumalolo, Gallen.

    There looks to be so much value in the 2nd row this year, that it's hard to justify splashing the cash on someone you expect to hold value at best.
    If I do go a big gun, it will be Nathan Brown, who looks the best points for cash option

    If I'm splashing cash on a keeper, I'd rather do it in FRF or WFB where I can't see as many tempting value options.

    One of the things about Nofo is that Jason Taylor used to use him to take a crazy amount of hitups, but he isn't as busy under Cleary. I'll have to go look up some stars to see if there is an effect there or if I've just been making things up.

    Positives for Nofo are that last year he had some injury effected games towards the end of the year. And will Teddy's absence give him more opportunity?

    Watching a couple of games from the end of the season the other day he still seemed very busy but I have no stats to back that up. I don't see him not taking hitups. I'm looking at trying to run both him and Teddy somehow.

    Lolo's going to become a master offloader. Scary thought if he actually does.

    Lolo is tempting but its hard to believe that he wont get cheaper at some point in the season.

    Sorry if this is in an obvious place and has been asked many times already - I've been out of action due to friends insisting I try fantasy NBA this year (nowhere near as much fun as NRL.....)

    Is there an overall league to join yet for the Fanatics?
    And any other important leagues to join not mentioned on the "Join my League" thread

    Article on NRL.com which says JLolo is going to try and add more offloads to his game this year.
