Sounds like you've made your decision!
Teddy out has been the back of my mind but not something I've genuinely considered. If you want to start playing match ups they've got Rabbitohs, BYE, Eels, Storm, Sharks... and if you want to convince yourself to get rid of him, you could say Eels will have Matto back and are getting desperate for wins, Storm have Munster and some mids? back, and Sharks should have Nicho going around by then.
Teddy can hurt you with big scores at any time though.
Admittedly if you go through his 2022 scores, his only big scores were against bottom 8 sides, except for an 81 against the Sharks and a 64 last round of the season against Rabbitohs (Cook did not play this game)
The question is do you trust another WFB to go close enough to matching his scoring. Walsh looks like he'll have a hot hand but he doesn't have the base that Teddy does, which is why he's been so reliable year on year.
EDIT: Posting my team to put it down in front of me with some notes.

Orange denotes main issues.
Boyd - just doesn't look good. Titans look rubbish.
Trindall - will play him at hlf until Hynes is back but then he's got to go.
Cartwright - highlighted, but hopefully not a problem in the short term, I think he might useful/playable until about round 7.
CNK - 51 was great in round 1 but round 2 was back to earth, probably misses this week.
TMM - just fucking shit scorer.
Preston nabbing the starting spot already is handy, should be good for 40-45 ish conservatively and can be played in 17.
So basically main problems right now are a playable half and a playable wfb.
If I punt Boyd I'll have no hooker cover but Cook is indestructible *TOUCHES WOOD*
