    If Brimson was out because of a sprained ankle I might put him in the NPRs this week.

    Back injury though, not taking that risk

    I’m struggling with Risking Brimson or chucking Drinkwater in I think mate. Just don’t see the KM bulking his score when he has a poor defensive game

    I don't think Morgan will be as dominant as you think. Drinkwater is uber fucking confident (basically the only trait Clifford needs to be a great player imo) and will call a fair bit of ball. And Morgan is fucking ordinary at kicking. He'll still get the majority but Drinky should get a few Kms as well.

    Not sure why, Brimson actually has a sample of games playing fullback where he has gone well above his price. Drinkwater currently, guesswork

    Drinkwater is cheaper, but the real kicker for me is that he will play this week, whereas Brimson won't.

    If Drinkwater fizzles he may be a swap for Brimson when Brimson does start.

    If you're starting Luai, who on earth is your back up cover?

    Bump - Still so undecided.
    Righto Lads, this is the final piece to the team.

    Like - Dfii & Maubbs - This option is the far more balanced option. Will Dfifi get the 80, and with a full strength broncos back - does he start? Also I would be all over Maubbs if Morris wasn't coming in round 3. Just have a feeling something will happen Maubbs may not get the 80 with Crichton on the bench.

    Dislike - Lolo & Watkins - Lolo is Lolo, top three fantasy fun. For watkins though, I just have this feeling that he will be much better this year. New Coach and second year back from ACL. But then again he plays for the titans.

    Cheers Lads & Bring on the 2020 season!

    Having 4 players playing against the Warriors (without RTS) is a great idea!

    @Rabbits21 wrote:A. Taumalolo Mann and Stimson

    Or

    B. Knight, Croft and Horsbrough

    Going back to this

    Say Lolo averages 63, Mann 33 and Stinson 37 that’s 133 total.

    Knight averages 49, Croft 46 and Horsbrough 44 that’s total 139.

    My issue with going Lolo is it stops you going for mid rangers who can make good money.

    Are others also torn on this?

    Luai is likely to score sub 30 unless he gets attacking stats. Mann should average well enough. Across 16 games in the HLFs Mann has averaged 41.5 points. He had a score of 8 which is concerning and two other scores below 20. At the same time he has 5 scores over 50 points.

    A titans update and no ruling out of Brimson? Nice

    I am not sold on Aubbs, but I don't rate Watkins at all really as he averages 2 less points than he is priced at. If it was Lolo & Shibasaki then I would probably prefer that over Aubbs and D. Fifita.

    Some things to remember before lockout:

    Get your team set well in advance because failhub
    Breath
    You will more than likely make 2 trades next week
    With a rolling lockout Captain, Vice and Dogs/Eels are only ones locked in
    Go with your gut
    Don’t risk Captaincy Round 1 
    Breath
    Don’t look too much into Byes/Origin, so much can happen before then
    Don’t run with players who are injured or ‘may be back next week’
    It’s generally best to spend most of your cash
    Breath
    Good luck

    I just think Brimson goes over 40 and Drinkwater 35 so the cheaper aspect doesn’t bother me and if Brimson was only out for a week I’d probably NPR him, back though as stated and no definitive return probably rules him out

    Has he suddenly turned good in the off-season ? Pearce will be doing all the kicking, Ponga will need plenty of ball. Mann will have the odd run but can see him just being a link man. Not sure where his points are coming from consistently

    You can apply same logic to Luai as Cleary will completely dominate kicking

    Luai scored 18 in only game with Cleary at 5/8 and has been sin binned 3 out 5 games as starting 5/8

    Mann averages around 30 tackles in 2019 games at 5/8 which is where average comes from

    Yeah my argument wasn’t Luai is better I don’t think that at all it was just that they’ll score similarly enough that you could use the money you save elsewhere. But fair points
