    This is a bit of a myth, especially when it comes to fantasy. More like average players in good systems get shown to be average players in an average system at the Warriors and the Warriors sure love to sign an average player.

    Good players still score well in fantasy:

    Addin Fonua-Blake - averaged 50 in his last season with Manly, averaged 51 in his first season with the Warriors
    Tohu Harris - averaged 45 starting in his last season with the Storm, averaged 50 in his first season with the Warriors
    Euan Aitken - averaged 41 his last season at the Dragons, averaged 43 (boosted by second half of the season at EDG) in his first season at the Warriors, then averaged 48 last year
    Josh Curran - averaged 52 in his break out season (2021) at the Warriors after joining from the Roosters in 2019

    I'm sure there are as many examples of players coming in and playing/scoring well as there are of players coming in and turning into duds.

    Great post.

    Warriors main problem is always going to be the appeal of getting big players over to them outside of Kiwi internationals, then those guys are often not in a position of extreme need. Have to make do with often secondary and tertiary options.

    Not good mate don’t wish that on any player. Hopefully it’s not as serious as first thought.

    Rumour floating around Barnett might GK too.

    What, like all the cool choices like a lion or eagle or emu being taken so you have to make do with the third(99th) best option of a daffodil or leek as a national emblem?

    I guess that'd suck.

    It's hard to see how minutes shake out in the warriors pack so I'm staying away from all of them

    Independently I like Tohu, Curran, AFB and Barnett but it's hard to see them all getting the minutes required

    I generally agree, but do think Tohu is a step above the others IRL, and a year post ACL should be back to normal performance levels with no real benefit to giving him a spell.

    Hey team! Good to be back. Had a decent year last year ended up finishing 143rd, hoping to go 142 better this year 🤣

    Just a question, do we know of any fantasy related discord links? Im in a supercoach one but much prefer the fantasy format

    Cheers!

    This is one for @rabbits21. Most of us on here are too old for discord, it's a wonder we can even type.

    my tv broke wrote:The annual NRLFF magic round meetup will now feature a 1.5km time trial to kick off proceedings. The start line will be.... 1.5km from the Cakko. I'm currently in talks with Jackson Hastings from the Newcastle Knights (bye) who is interested in being a special guest competitor. The winner will get a strawberry milkshake, signed by Kalyn Ponga (also from the Newcastle Knights).

    Being that the Knights have the bye I'm proposing we do Magic round in Newy. The 1.5km time trial will be The Lucky to The Great Norhtern (exactly 750m thanks to Google maps) down a schooey of New and back

    I think Barnett will play edge and big mins mate 70-80mins. He’s worth consideration at least at 617k and DPP and could be GK.

    I have all 5 of those players in my side, now given you finished +/- 5000 places above me last season, you might want to make some changes

    IF he gets the GK I tend to agree. The roosters showed (with the SST GK trial) that having multiple kickers isn't ideal and you'd rather put all your eggs in the single basket. If Barnett gets the GK it would be signals to me that he's due for at least 60mins on the edge.

    If he gets 60+ and Tohu gets 60+ (lets be honest, it'll be 80), then probably they'll be rotating their big middles much more so AFB will get more like 40 mins. I expect Curran to play much more actively through the middle and also get shorter stints. Shorter stints for the middles will maintain their impact while also not burning them out which might also improve the notoriously bad Warriors defence. Maybe.

    Can't wait for trials to find out!

    Curious as to what the attraction to Averillo is?
    It's the surprising selection of the five IMO

    cheap, probably starting fb & dpp ctr/wfb is the clincher for me & you can play him in the ctr's & because he's a fb he will score more than a ctr

    By that logic you'd just stump up the extra 2k and run HTF who's got an infinitely higher ceiling

    Hammer isn't that good either, and if I can avoid them both, I will, but I think I prefer Avo over Hammer in a vacuum.

    I would prefer Coates over both of them given the Storm's very good early draw, though that is obviously quite a risky play (basically if you pick Coates, you are betting that he will get an early hat trick or two like he did at the start of 2022)

    Mate I think Dolphins will be on the back foot quite a lot.

    They signed Niu too meaning Hammer could go back to wing?

    Hammer priced at 26 would need to avg 35 to be worthwhile I don’t think he can do that
