    He has every chance to hold his spot. I still think the others you listed have more sustainable scoring though

    AKP will be one of those guys who hangs around through a bit of form and a bit of good luck (like injuries and suspensions)

    Even tho i watched the broncos vs titans game i still have no idea who he is (other than being a winger)

    Don't overlook that this guy could also hold his place and do a Jojo Fifita or Greg Marzew and make some solid coin over the year.

    Yeah this is what I think will happen, he's a good finisher and will be playing outside Foran and Fermor (i.e. the Titans better attacking edge), plus he has the Tigers and Dragons in his first 2 games which are prime opportunities for attacking stats.

    Oopsie! lol! What a difference a letter can make Rolling Laugh

    Tupou from WT same price point looked really good as well, probably would get DPP if named but also probably same job security. Would be keen to punt if he got a go, Thompson would be more preferable IMO. Hopefully someone can find out some inside goss before start of season kicks off

    Kelly back rd3, no?

    If he had three games I'd feel better about it.

    I just head from a mate who visited the zoo where Joe Stimson works part time to supplement his income until the new CBA goes through. There are twenty-two animals at the zoo... 21 rabbits and a dog... it is a shitzu...

    Anyway he was speaking to the dog who told him that Stimson was tired of playing in the forwards and asked Holbrook if we could play on the wing instead of AKP and take over the goal-kicking from Boyd. My mate's mail has been pretty good since the successful intervention to stop him licking cane toads. Stimson is now at least half a point under priced. If you do not get on him, you do not understand fantasy

    someone has to inherit marzhew's vacant starting wing spot, thompson has left, herbert injured back around mid season apparently, kelly suspended until rd. 4 yes he seems nailed until rd. 3 but we have seen this before the fill in performs so well he keeps his spot.

    Thompson is always good for a reach around. Has great hands and always puts in the hard yards with ball work. Also has a nice offload

    when i first saw i. thompson i thought what a cool looking dude with his beard & short hair. then he did his 1st hit up i thought he moves well, changes direction well, has a football brain & he'll be good for tb's, lb's & tries. then he went off.

    Kelly certain to come back into side. Rest of backline any three from Sami, Schoupp, Jifita, AKP. Who knows who misses out? Will be down to form and fitness, I guess.

    Don't personally have any faith in AKP being that great shakes fantasy-wise. Very quick, can find the line, so is/can Jason Saab. His QCup average is pretty low despite a boatload of tries. Also he plays for the Titans and not always against the Dolphins.

    Through to the keeper for me, but prepared to be wrong.

    If Jason Saab was base price and not injured I would have him in my team

    There it is again. I feel like I'm taking crazy pills. Kelly only misses 2 games, back rd 3 right?

    Just checked nrl.com and Kelly is indeed due back round 3, not sure where the round 4 thing came from initially.

    AKP's best matchups are the first two though, round 3 is against the Storm so he probably would struggle there anyway. I think he can defend his spot in those first 2 games, but if he does get dropped then he's highly owned enough that you don't lose out as much relatively, and he's base price so you won't lose any money and can just sell him to the next cheapie that pops up.
