    To me it seems he's panning out like people thought Tino would

    To me he has been great coming on against tired forwards in the wet in the middle
    Bit like Arrow, big points in a short amount but how sustainable is it

    Now with an edge role and alot of unknowns with players to come back including Matterson who knows what his role is and how long he stays there
    Career 43pt average player at 2RF what do you see him averaging? 50pts?

    Guessing people aren't talking about much due to his tricky price and plugging holes with new cheap coin goats this week

    Kenny,Jackson and a few others $400-$600 appeal too but you only get 2 trades

    I really like him but gone from middle interchange to starting edge because Matterson concussion. Should be good if goes back to middle interchange though.
    I have to sell Turpin to get him and now leaning towards Lam to Egan or Kenny better trade in scheme of things

    Kenny is another guy who I haven't seen any love for - guessing it's because Koro might be back sooner rather than later.

    I was tossing up between him and Schuster
    Still undecided and would take him for 5 weeks but then it gives me less money to fix other issues should they arise next week
    The difference for my team is playing Alvaro over him as 17th man which is probably at best a 10pt upgrade
    The ceiling though for a 80min hooker is the lottery ticket and he can score well

    Read an article on him saying how he struggled 18mths ago thrown in the NRL coming from playing lock in juniors
    So still learning the craft and given he scores fairly well could be a decent scoring stop gap until Verrils


    Schuster given his price and BE his much more risk but more reward too

    Don’t sell Milf before playing the dogs.

    Deserves a 3rd (and 4th) go to set our expectations more accurately

    "Robinson said Radley is unlikely to spend any time at dummy-half to ease the strain on Freddy Lussick with Jake Friend out."

    Going to be a lot of spread minutes with that 4 forward bench

    In previous years I have been hurt by not jumping on players when they appear short term (eg Ponga in his first year)

    My normal move is to trade in a guy with more job security so they can get injured.

    Even with Schuster's talent, he won't be worth it as a 20 minute benchy, but I'll just hope he makes himself undroppable in the short term.

    So you're trading in SOS this week?

    I have concerns with players who have had score increase based off improved performance in same role (IPap, Jackson, Mahoney, Barnett, Frizell, Young, Momirovski) trying to figure out how sustainable they are. Think I'd much rather trade in guys that have had a role change resulting in increased points

    [quote="Boozecluez"]

    If Schuster adds attacking stats to his 45 base stat points from last week, his score could be anything.

    I have Schuster and thought of Lam to Kenny but Egan for slightly more doesn't have job security issues of Kenny.

    Egan has impressed me last 2 more than I thought he would and he should've got +70 last game. How much was try worth? TBs?

    Jackson has done the same move as Harris and Yeo last season. 80 minute edge to 70-80 minute lock.

    Either Robinson is not being straight, which is not unknown, or Butcher will fill in at DH (as he did in Rnd1) or Hutchinson will come into bench (played more minutes than Lussick last week). No way is he playing Lussick all game against Souths if it's tight in the second half.

    Missed the last 20-30 pages? Anything important or just 20-30 pages of Schuster, Lam, SOS, Avo, Alvaro chat?

    @wolfking wrote:Going back to the Lam talk, I'm leaning toward trading too.  Too much strike power in their team for him to be really fantasy relevant.  Another thing to note is Radley, he offers another attacking option for the team.

    I could also see this as a positive. Last year Radley played a big role in connecting the two halves to create more space. Being that link player he can give Lam a little more space to move?

    I don't think anyone is concerned about Schuster's scoring potential as a starting edge

    The concern is how long he retains the starting edge role for.

    Yes and he completed the move in round 15 last year and proceeded to not score above 50 once from 6 appearances, average 34 tackles and 121 metres.

    As someone said Gosi was originally dropped for Davey and it shouldn’t be too hard for Schuster to outshine Gosi and take his spot when Sironen returns + Foran is bound to get an injury this year. Feel like Schuster will force Des to keep him in the team.
