    I see they did not give Miller that TS where he clearly got his knees under the ball to stop the try....

    The trend also seems to be big minute MIDs are getting huge minutes and scoring to match, to start the season. 10 points of value on 80% of the rest would see me over 900.

    You do have to temper this with the probability that at least one of your players will bust or get injured. That might not be a problem relatively, because if it's Cheese or Boyd for example everyone is in the same boat. But it does make mid-round projections hostage to hubris.

    Also 30s for the cheap centres is pure hopium. I have a couple too but fully expecting one of them to score 12.

    3 games of trends lol!

    But I hope you and I can get into the 900s, would be my best starting round return.

    Don't have him and do have Miller, but they didn't give CNK the try save either, and that was far more obvious. Ponga got the Miller try save somehow

    Ford seems to be my biggest miss so far after swapping him out late

    Thought he was going to get 60-ish mins, but if he’s getting 80 consistently including rotating into the middle Shocked . Biggest concern would be his MT though, over his 50+ min games averages 3.9 MT so maybe it’s just his play style

    A solid start with only Garner stinking it up

    I think the obvious conclusion with Garner is that he's a better player when in a better system, under a better coach Laughing

    Being roped for Salmon is a fairly shameful.
    Gut is that he'll probably come right after a few weeks or so, gut is also that I'm probably not that patient

    Well missed all of the action last night. Deja vu seems to have once again reared its head with Ponga, should have known better and need to hope for better now.

    Another HIA probably means a stint on the sideline so maybe he’s the first to go for young Walsh next week

    I go to bed. Cleary gets an abnormal amount of extra points. I wake up. Just how fantasy works.

    Plus Warriors draw isn't the easiest coming up, perhaps not so many attacking opportunities

    Warriors have - Roosters/Cowboys/Bulldogs/Sharks - Only the Bulldogs game is at home

    Glad to see he did well and proved the many doubters wrong.

    Love it
    He reminds me a bit of Fermor. No nonsense, hard running, good trainer, lots of effort. The kind of player coaches love.

    Thanks mate cheer It's mainly my guns that have played with Grant, Haas, Carrigan, Hopgood and (C)leary. Hopefully Teddy and Trbo go well and I chose the right middies. Definitely sucked me back in to fantasy for now though Laugh 3
    It's like pureing a 6-iron to 3 foot from the hole.

    Sorry in advance for when you miss the putt.

    Any chance CNK and Miller get their TS before Monday unlock? I know teams have been updated already but sometimes they add those in near the end right?
