    I think mattnz was more commenting on the how tempting it will be to pick a player called "Fantasy New"

    Fixing up the stats site so it correctly shows players game stats for those that moved mid season.

    I don't but I am sure we could do it between us. Here is a start:
    Segeyaro
    DWZ
    Nikorima
    Kahu
    Winterstein
    Lowe
    Roberts

    Just saw a post on NRL Fantasy Facebook page saying salary cap will be 9.8 million as a reply to the top comment on the Broncos fantasy prices

    Haas is super-consistent and not worth wasting a trade to get him in after a month. Where are you going to find the funds to get him in anyway, cash cows havent increased enough to trade them yet and you would likely need to trade another gun.

    That wasn't me asking the question, that's why I cropped the name of the person who asked the question

    I'm definitely starting with Haas no doubt about it

    I was more pointing out that NRL Fantasy is confirming a 9.8m salary cap

    Yeah with $9.8M and Haas (and others) cheaper than we thought he might be, it is hard to leave him out

    Any interest in Bateman(assuming 2nd row only)?

    Slightly under priced due to injury affected 20 in 26 minutes

    Will probably not change in price too much early days, but would be a serious POD

    The problem with not starting Haas is deciding when to bring him in

    You probably won't generate enough cash to grab him before round 5 or 6 at earliest. Then that gives you 5 weeks before bye rounds start where most will be trading him out then back in. If it isn't worth grabbing him at that time do you wait until round 19 and only have the best player in fantasy for 6 weeks?

    If he was getting 80 minutes at lock again, yes, but not on an edge, need to find value in your starting team.

    I think I'll start with Haas. He'll score more tries this year. Too much else going on in the first six rounds to hope he drops in price.

    I'm still confident of starting without Haas.

    BE is going to be something like 70 for round 1. Even if he goes up in price it won't be by much, just get him in when you can and concentrate on getting more value into your starting team.
    He'll be close to $200k more expensive than the next best FRF options, but doubt he'll provide that much worth of points

    This is the big one for me. Whether to start with Haas or not. I'm definitely going to aim to start with him. I think if you dont start with him the temptation will be to use the extra cash to pick too many mid-range players

    Who will be your captain?

    I mean it comes down to your captain vs captain more so than FRF vs FRF, based on last years average you are going to be scoring 10 extra points compared to Cook for x amount of weeks. With an extra $150k (Roughly, I dunno Cook's price) do you think you can find those extra points in your team each week on a consistent basis.

    Captain will be whoever the highest scoring player in my side is.

    Some of the extra captain points from Haas is taken up by the ownership bump to his price.
    I'm, also concerned by Haas not having a single bad round last year. That surely can't continue.
    For Haas to rise significantly in price he will have to go on the greatest run of fantasy scores ever seen. Sure it's possible, but I'm not going to bet on it
