    Thanks mc!

    Here’s one for the group. Who’d be your top 3 left field picks over the next 5rds?

    I’d go,

    A) tapine
    B) ma’u
    C ) r James.

    I’d also chuck in Harris. But he doesn’t really count as left field.

    only comparison here is injury proneness

    Fair. What goes against ARey is that he is a half. He gets targeted. They all do and we know that. Some of the toughest (Cronk, JT, Widdop etc) just get up and carry on, the next tier take a while to do so and the others after that will never be talking points in fantasy.

    ARey is middle of that pack. In the group that takes a while. He borderlines on the elite group due to the amount of heart shown, unfortunately his body doesn't seem to be a strong as that heart.

    Dugan is a FB. Some people will say CTR but he's a FB. They also get smashed. Not to the point of regularity that halves do but often enough. The difference is, he's a softcock in a tough kids tattooed up body. Can't handle it.

    Both of em spend a lot of time out of the game injured. No argument. The only thing that swings ARey into my field of view is the protection he is getting at the moment. His edge boys seem to be doing a bit of a better job at protecting him. I like that. That should be an edge blokes responsibility when it comes to playing alongside a small half. Couple that with the rich vein of form that the Rabbits are currently in and I'm of the opinion that he is well worth a look.

    Reynolds is attacking the line more and more importantly is getting his attacking stats up on the back of a strong Rabbitohs pack.
    Kicking goals and 400m km gives him almost 30 points there alone and similar to the 2014 season when you look through the stats.

    The only downside is his injury history, but at that stage you could probably swap for Cleary/Johnson anyways as long as you have cover for the short term ones.

    I know Welshy means well with his concerns of not bringing him in but for 709k (44k over what he started the year at) means he is probably 70-100k under priced if he continues his current form

    Saying that I may have to go Koro for the fact I need cover for Hooker too (As well as half) if I trade Griffin this week....Or gamble on Watson as really need that DPP (HK/HLF)

    Really stuck looking at trading in S. Burgess, A. Crichton, R. James, T. Harris, L. Fitzgibbon, and C. Hess. How would you guys rank them all.

    In this order.

    Burgess/Crichton (Burgess first by a whisker)
    Hess
    Harris/Fitzgibbon (purely based on price. I think Harris is undervalued by about 8 points and 100k)
    James (potential is there but team is hard to rely upon and hasn't yet turned the corner).

    I have decided to bring in Surgess despite his poor score last week. His dual position is really valuable to my overall team plan. A DPP 2RF in my 13 with Matterson on the bench means that I can cover all the big point scoring positions for injury and comfortably run with four hookers (Cook, Smith, Macca, McInnes) in my 17. Outstanding!!

    Looking at those 3 (and I have) I would go James - Tapine - Ma'u

    James will pickup the workload if the Titans have injuries (and they have loads) but how long is that sustainable
    Would have been a much better value buy a few weeks ago but had other issues then

    Tapine is a roller coaster so you are either getting a 30 or a 60.. Potential due to his price but would need balls to go him as if the Raiders fail so does his score as he doesn't go lookign for work

    Ma'u I have been burnt before, don't really know what to make of him at the moment and will probably get shuffled elsewhere in the next few weeks

    I didn't realise how well James was going lately, and unlike his big year (2016?) only one try. Definite POD potential, dpp helps and unlike backs, doesn't matter so much that he's in a bottom four team. Could be worth a punt. Still likes a penalty and a missed tackle though. I have Surgess and am expecting him to go huge any week now. Might even captain him against my Cows. If I traded out Brown I would probably consider Crichton. I don't consider it chasing points. He is a gun and they've found their feet. Harris is probably a gun but I'm waiting to make sure and round 13 and can't get him yet anyway. Fitzgibbon is a cool POD move, likes to find the tryline, plays 13, could be a good play. Scores are up and down a bit and I can't remember if there was a good reason for that, maybe someone could elaborate. I rate Hess last. I've just not been impressed and Greeny will have to shake things up sooner or later if not this week. Could end up on the bench again.

    Just as clarification 

    I would never, ever suggest not bringing in a player just to benefit my own team

    Very smart Pookus. So many people saying they need cover at half, hooker and the wing 3/4. Some people agree (I personally like to have cover) and others say cover is overrated. I don't begrudge that sentiment either. If I'm going to get cover though, it's with a DPP player. Preferably one that can interact with another DPP player that covers a different secondary position.

    This way I feel I'm getting coverage at three positions with two players! Win win situation.

    The format this year has somewhat nullified the necessity for DPP players... Well, I should say lessened the usefulness of DPP players due to the fact that you are not dictated to as to who and what position bench and emergency players you can pick. I still think they're highly underrated though and the right set up could easily see you cover all positions just with 4 bench players.

    Def worth a look and as you say everyone is aware on injury history regardless mate

    I got him on the cheap expecting a return to form and got rewarded with the trade...so far. Now its whether he can stay injury free and maintain his stunning fantasy form
