    Oh and 1st by the way  Cool

    I think RTS will score way more than 5 tries this year and will be sniffing around the ruck with plenty of chances to attack off this improved and big Warriors pack.

    That’s why I picked him in my first draft.

    Holmes I’m still a bit iffy on..... not fully convinced on him.

    Hard to go past a good ruck sniffer. Any chance he's training down the house, at peak fitness or has GPS data off the chart ?

    Yep, this is about the only take away. You can't win the comp in the first six rounds but you can kill it with dud "pods". You make your big moves mid season

    Altho in saying that id probably still pick the guy i think will score better, so, i dunno

    Who do we think might benefit from the turnover tackle rule (as opposed to the strip)? I hope it rewards proper big tackles and doesn't just give points to whichever three players happen to be there when someone forces a duff offload.

    Not something I've paid attention to before, but which players benefit? Aggressive forwards like JWH and NAS plus the Tafua-type wingers who run in off the edges to smash people? Of the fantasy-relevant maybe Tino and Tolo?

    Grant also plays round 13, which is a plus

    I thought my initial team was really mainstream this season, but still have 12 players with < 10% ownership.

    If he didn't come back to guide "the worst ever QLD team" he'll never come back.

    Hey chaps, good to be back with you lot of losers for another year of fantasy. Looks like a lot of early favourites and a bunch of value already. Ready to make a million version of the team before I get to watch the dragons suck all year.

    Welcome back fam. If I have to burn 6 trades at centre due to injury again this season it will be my last. Was going to start with Latrell this year but have not seen any indication he is training the house down and it seems there are some juicier prospects i.e. Averillo this year.

    Coen Hess with this years reason why he'll be fantasy relevant;

    "Meanwhile, back-rower Coen Hess has declared "there's no time for excuses" as he prepares for his seventh NRL season.

    The Queensland representative is keen to take on a bigger leadership role to help the Cowboys return to finals contention."

    *Okay, so he didn't actually say anything about Fantasy, but we all know the Hess trap...

    I would expect Grant to increase his try assists and line break assists a fair bit this season.

    I just did a comparison of Grant and CS9 on this fancy site footystatistics.com (I highly recommend this website)

    Grant only had 5 TAs and 6 LBAs in 15 games (27 fantasy points or 1.8 ppg)
    Cameron Smith had 15 TAs and 15 LBAs in 16 games (105 fantasy points or 6.6 ppg)
