    Stuck on my final EMG spot. Currently have Moylan, Niu, Stefano. Shortlist:

    Croker - Could look back and think it was silly not to start with a cheap hooker with no bench cover. Could also be dropped next week.  

    Gos - Priced at 21, avg 34 in the second row over 40 mins. Current preference.

    Hetherington - Priced at 24, minutes over 30 avg 34, better mid cover

    Leniu - Passes the eye test, better mid cover, good bench for him getting minutes

    Reimis - extra CTR cover never hurt

    Simonsson - extra cash to spend on my #17

    Can someone sway me?

    Back to the waddell chat, I’m pretty sold on taking the risk. It seems Barrett is a big fan seeing as he brought him from manly, his back row scores in nrl and nsw cup are well above his price point. Gotta take a couple risks and he and milf are it for me. Glad to be pretty settled on a squad for once.

    That might be true but RFM was probably their best forward in 2020 & he's on the bench as he's coming back from injury. Waddell might not play 80 mins & could be back on the bench in round 2.

    On Waddell, i don't know what info NRL Physio has, but he implied that RFM's benching was temporary while he worked back to fitness from his ankle injury. Waddell is currently in his jersey, so i don't like the job security there, but i can understand others betting on Elliot being the one to make way.

    good enough reasoning for me, i approach fantasy with conventional thinking and I hover around the middle of the 'serious players' pack for my trouble, i I think it's time to venture outside the safety of the box, in full knowledge that there's every chance i'll spend R1 banging on the door begging to be let back into the box again Laughing

    I just know the bloke can be a game changer. Whether it'll be in a good or bad way is a different story that I profess to know nothing about! But one of these years he has to come good and if it happens to be this year then I'll be one trade and few points in front of the majority. I'm happy to swing for it

    As I said it is a risk and the other thing that could mean absolutely nothing but Elliot has been filling that left edge spot which is where rfm played so again risk but hopefully if Barrett decides to start rfm on edge (still could be see as a middle by Barrett) it’ll be Elliot dropping to beach as he is in left spot and he provides a bit of spark off the bench

    I am trying to finalise my last spot in my team. Needs to be either a WFB or CTR for team balance. My only halves back up at the moment is Schuster, who I expect to be named on the bench this week and moving forward, with Cust not in the 21.

    Have narrowed it down to a final 4:

    Averillo - Under an injury cloud, if fit I also have Cotric and I really like combinations in my side that can go huge together (already have Lam / Crichton, Fog / Fifita, Lucy / Laurie who combined well in the trial, can see Laurie following him looking for offloads all game). His dual is handy as I am also light on back up halves.

    D Walker - Cheaper than I expected after really low scores in 2 injured games last year for 1 and -1 scores. Fullbacks generally score decently and has a place back in the centers waiting for him when Turbo returns. Better job security than Averillo and no injury issues. Also has the handy dual HLF

    Roberts - Has the most fantasy pedigree, can he get back to his best? Average at center last season was 10 higher than he is priced at. Doesn't help cover the halves.

    Ramsey - While in a bad team, looks a good player. If things go badly at Dragons as expected, any major changes at the club always seem to end up with Dufty as the scapegoat. At fullback I would really rate him. Also not dual.

    Thoughts?

    Hey mtb

    your site says Daine Laurie is priced at 16, but at $246k that should be 18 (18.35 to be more exact)
    There may be others impacted, are you using different Magic Numbers for different players for some reason?

    You can rule Hetho and Reimis out of that imo. You have ctr cover with Tesi and Hetho is below two others that you have there. Gos I'm not about personally but can see the alure, I've been burnt in the past by him tho so he's a potato in my books. Leniu and Simonsson have the better security. Funnily, out of all of em, I'm be taking the gamble on Croker tho. For the very reason you mentioned.

    I've got a relatively "safe" team this year but need a few boom or bust types to keep me on the edge of my seat and justify my drinking habit ya know.

    TLDR/CBFR - Croker Simonsson Leniu in that order without knowing that makeup of your team

    Avo. And only because you are going to be in trouble if and more likely when Schuster isn't named. The kid is good but he ain't the new hotness and is an out and out half, defs not worth carrying as a utility

    I've got 3 Broncs in my starting team and 1 in EMG which puts me in the strange position of actually hoping the Broncs do well for the first time in my entire life.

    The way the team is named though, they must be viewing Foran as the 2nd hooker, which could see Schuster getting decent game time at his preferred position. I see him as this year's Crichton, who I had round 1 last season, expecting that a quality player was going to get his opportunity sooner rather than later. It may just need Schuster to be more open to other positions to get a start.

    Welcome to the land of disappointment and misery, be comforted by the fact that some of us on here actually support that team so feel the feelings you are set to experience two-fold.

    You would think the coach would want to build on the halves combo considering their team is so weak. Seems silly moving Foran mid game to hooker.

    What other option do they have in their 21? Could move Sironen or Walker to halves and Foran to hooker seems the only other way to do it. Can't see anyone else in the 21 that has experience in that role, and Croker needs a back up.
