    Saw something the other day that Arthurs was a smokey to start at fullback round 1 and has been getting some reps with the first team squad

    Its fluff. He has done a little bit of fullback training, as have a few others, but he has mainly trained at centre or wing though.

    Cheers mate, good to know. Bookmarked then, nice to have somewhere reliable that has development contracts as well.
    While you're answering questions, are the prices on your site this years or last year's. I assume you grab them via an api, so not sure if they have the prices in the dB yet.

    Is he expected to get the Manly starting gig? if so would it be fair to value him at his historical 'starting hooker average'? or are people expecting more of an uptick than that?

    For reference (using MTBs site):

    Levi Average 2019 (2018) = 36.2 (33.3)
    Levi Starting Average 2019 (2018) = 36.2 (39.9)
    Levi 40+min Average 2019 (2018) = 39.6 (34.3)
    Levi 50+min Average 2019 (2018) = 39.6 (39.2)
    Levi 60+min Average 2019 (2018) = 48.6 (44.0)

    Any 'old favs' people are considering this year? Think your Merrin's, Vaughans, James' etc. the guys who scored well for you once and haven't done so recently, but you hope/want/feel they might if for no other reason than gut.

    Be funny if Merrin comes out scoring like old times.

    He will definitely be the starting 9, and should get 60+ minutes.

    He is pretty tempting. I imagine a lot of people will jump on. He does have the tendency for a few really low scores in big mins, which is a little off putting. Manly's style may suit him though?

    Well Manase Fainu has a court case hanging over him for an alleged stabbing who would otherwise be first choice.

    With Koro gone they don't really have a recognised hooker (I think Cade Cust was training there) so you assume Levi will get that spot

    Manly's style could give him a few more attacking stat's. Plenty of offloads coming his way

    He an interesting one then. I agree he's not an autopick, but as a subsequent poster noted, if he could eek out a couple more points above that historical ave, he then is up there in the keeper class of C, just.... so a slightly undervalued keeper at C, in a year where so far there aren't any obvious Nikora type players....yet. mmmm - on my watch list for sure (as long as he has C DPP)

    Definitely watch list, but I must say I am not convinced by the idea that hus scores will go up due to having captaincy (his average as a fullback dropped slightly after being made captain)

    I am also not convinced that he will score more than he did in 2017 due to the fact that 2017 was 3 years ago.

    If the price is right Merrin is on the radar. Has fantasy pedigree and should get similar minutes to JDB

    Whelp, wasn't going to go Williams but looks like this cements it. Can't go against a tried and tested fomula, though my head says he won't score well enough with Wighton
    Reckon Williams will kick the piss out of the ball so plenty of base to go with his strong tackling and running game

    You really got a gem there, quality player

    With Mbye what’s his historical hooker average and how many games?

    If games are low (less than 10) then playing full time role there and close to 80minutes I’d back him to go around the 45 mark.

    I think there is some value in Levi, but not sure it is enough!

    Great news for the Titans, will free up some spending money. They need a couple of outside backs pretty desperately, AJ or Douehi would be good pick ups.

    Pretty interesting that Jesse Arthurs left a starting position at the Titan to be about 3rd string back up at the Broncos.

    Yeah need an outside back and I’d love if it they could throw more money at Arrow to get him to reverse for 2021... can players still do that if it’s early enough, like DCE and Teddy did?

    In reality they will probably overpay a bunch of fringe first graders to be the new Latu’s in their squad.

    I’m very wary of Levi and Mbye when there are already some solid, more predictable hooker options.

    We really need prices.. this drip feed is frustrating when you really don't know who is going to be bumped up subjectively.

    We have 10 more teams to be released, hopefully it is not 10 more days until the site opens.. but probably..

    MBye it's the ability to have him at CTR, Levi not so much for me.
