Pretty rubbish weekend outside of Fantasy, but wow did Tannah mother-friggin' Boyd make my day in Fantasy today. What a joyous score. Been critical of the dude in the past but he's causing some good times. Hope there's nothing too serious to what Wolfie was saying about potential injury (didn't get to watch the game too closely).
It's funny, usually I'd have at least three hookers in my team by now in any given season, but apart from an ill-fated and brief dance with Brailey, and starting the year with Cheese, I've not had a certified hooker option in my team all year. But Boyd's been filling the void quite well. Hope I don't curse him and he's out with an injury now, because then I am what some might call fucked.
Mofo - lot of chat around him this week. If he was 11K cheaper he'd have been an option for my missed Carty trade that I could have been sad about, but he was just out of range. Very interesting option with Haas missing this week and a few guys I need to move on from this week too.
Aitken - couple of tries has helped out, and he probably didn't lose enough money to be a real option, but a couple of very impressive scores recently. Well, he lost plenty of value, but he had a long way to drop with his price tag.
Lemuelu - very nice, and very timely. I like it.
Nikorima - was so close to playing him in my 17 but my main H2H had Alamoti and I didn't want to watch him potentially score big and miss out, so I went the limp option. Either way, relieved to see him finally earn some coin. A lot of false starts, but he was good today.
IKatoa - played him in my 17 and happy I did so. Nice.
Hammer - couple of concerning scores now. Most concerning thing is the type of game this (second half) was, and he didn't reap the rewards. As noted above, didn't watch the game too closely, and I did see him have some nice involvements, and I saw Jennings spit on his TA... and again, it's a solid enough CTR score. But in a second half like that, I'd have hoped for a bit more from him.
Must be said, that was an absolutely disgraceful second half from the Titans. I guess they got the seemingly red urgent memo to fuck up every single tip I made this weekend and just played to that. 2 from 6 I am now. Was so sure about this Titans one...
Probably more to do with my overall mood, but didn't pay too much attention to the second match either. Seemed like a pretty interesting contest but I look at Sipley up top there and wonder what he did and how I missed it all... including the fact he was even on the field. I only remember a brief moment where he looked injured and that was it. But shit, that's a score. Second one of it's nature. Saw briefly there was some chat about him above - will look into it.
Koro - was firmly in my sights as an option for the Carty trade. Solid score, but I guess with a try you're probably wanting more than that. Seemed really involved from what I saw, though, which is what I'd like to see.
Ipap, Bateman, Ofa and Klemmer all dropping cash, should any of them become an interesting prospect... which is probably only the first two, if the Tigers can turn things around.
Bula - should be an interesting enough option if he looks like keeping this role.
Talau - jeez, if he nails down a starting role again he's going to be below base price. Again, if he nails down a starting spot, I assume he'll be a very popular accommodator for big trades with the need for base price assistance.
Schuster - doesn't seem to offer much at all. Another interesting price to watch topple, should he ever become a factor with reliable fitness.
Simpkin - I'm only really in it for H2H, so I'm not really across byes and stuff, but even for me I find myself interested in this situation through the Origin series... assuming Koro is still part of it.
And that's a few thoughts. Four to go on Tuesday (Teddy, CNK, Katoa and Ford) and hoping for a big effort from all four.
