    I don't think he is a must trade in. Solid price for what he can deliver. Priced at 49 and should average somewhere between 52-55 come the end of the year with some big games. Plays round 13. Set to get DPP. Looked very good in his last outing.

    Was about to post but your summary is perfect. Definitely considering but I'll probably have other stuff to deal with next week

    Don't know about that. I just threw his name out as I was looking at him before he got suspended, as it'll only be 150K between him and Griffin. DPP would be nice, but doesn't matter too much for me at this stage. He would be an option for Fifita owners if he got DPP.

    Me, 386/7 with captain, meh. Kennar and Griffin stalling things.

    Am I the only one with no interest in Aitken? I get that he is the highest scoring CTR atm and all, but still....
    Scores 40s if he gets a try, 20s if he doesn't; only cracked 50 once.
    Has done well enough to bag a pie in 4/5 games but how likely is that to continue? (admittedly more likely than most other options whilst he is [playing behind that Dragons forward pack).

    I would be far more interested in Latrell if I didn't already have him

    Also, nobody bring in Latrell. Massive trap! <_<      >_>      <_<

    Aitken is a gun and has been since he came on the scene, but yeah, for his price, 40's the last two weeks with tries, I wouldn't spend that amount on him. If you stated with him though, you're laughing.

    He might be after this round though. They review after round 6.

    Shocked

    Aitken's the first name to come to mind when talking keeper CTRs, considering very few average 40+.

    2017 - 39 average in 12 games
    2016 - 43 in 22
    2015 - 42 in 22

    Last year's injury really the only thing that scared more people off to start. His current 43 average is in line with past performances and should get what you pay for at 616k.

    His role has changed so points are coming in a different way. Previously he was defending inside the half so was making ~15 tackles a game which gave him huge base stats.

    At the moment I am rocking Isaako and Hiku. With the plan to bring in Latrell next week or the week after. Just to set in stone my CTRs.

    I must admit I was wrong about Latrell this year as I thought he would be inconsistent.

    Definitely a fuckload of tries keeping him up there so far, but still averaging a tick over 15 tackles a game with 92 in 6. 116 run metres, so not a bad base of 26 for a CTR that gets a lot of TBs (and tries evidently..)

    My luck with captaincy finally dried up. Turbo with 85, arrow with 99..now teddy with 42. Not complaining though!

    Was considering jfh but decided to skip him and wait for the best pick of jensen gosie etc

    Now it seems like there's roosters and sharks forward to add to the list. Any initial thoughts on who'd be the top couple picks our of jensen gosie butcher capewell dillon etc if they're all going to get a run for the next couple of months?

    I have no interest at his price, 628k next week much better value elsewhere. He will be priced at about 42 which he may well average, so a great pick for those that started with him but won't be looking to bring him in.

    Maybe but Liu could end up in the prop rotation with Matterson to lock and Maubs to the right edge.

    Me neither for awhile, got Fifita and Brown out next week and question marks on Kodi still.

    No use planning anything with another 5 games and a bunch of training sessions to get through next week.

    Can see the appeal of getting perhaps the set and forget CTR this year though.
