I've been looking for a cheapish player but don't want to take a risky move this late in the season. So I've put together a list of shittos who have played nearly every week and could get me
20 10 points in a pinch. Unfortunately, I don't like any of them all that much.
I've ** the ones who play R19.
**Jed Cartwright $221k Rabbitohs EDG, CTR – played 12 rounds - Might be starting this week, usually gets limited minutes. Passes the “is he better than Burbo test” for me, but only just! Has been discussed at length on the forum, use the search function if you want to know more.
**Bailey Sironen $238k Warriors EDG – played 12 rounds – Highest score is 30, lowest 8.
Bronson Garlick $247k Storm HOK, MID – played 13 rounds – Will get you 20 most of the time. I don’t want to hear about how he’s a handcuff for Grant. If you’re hooker is out, play your cover. Bronson Garlick is not your cover, he’s just a cheap option you bought to afford [insert gun name here]
Soni Luke $253k Panthers HOK – played 12 rounds – averages 21, you could do worse
Jaemon Salmon $254k Panthers HLF, EDG – played 13 rounds – “weak gutted dog”. For those with recency bias, he got 61 last week. There are a lot of scores below 20 in his other appearances. Not for Papa.
“Mad” Jack Hetherington $270k Knights MID - played 14 rounds - managed to avoid suspension this year, likely due to only getting 15-20 minutes a game. Will get you about 20 if he doesn’t get binned. "Fun" to watch
Xavier Coates $276k Storm WFB – played 12 rounds – scores better with tries, can score 8 points if he doesn’t get tries
**Brendan Hands $308k Eels HOK, HLF - played 12 rounds - scores better in 80, will Hodgson be back? I actually like this as an option, thanks Milch.
**Tom Starling $311k Raider HOK - played 14 rounds - currently behind Woolford for minutes but usually gets a run. Averaging 30 but has been getting fewer and fewer minutes. Don't do it.
**Pasami Saulo $324k Raider MID - played 14 rounds - Bench but an injury could see him get more minutes, will probably get you 20, could go higher. I'd consider if he was cheaper
**Erin Clark $335k Titans HOK, MID - played 12 rounds – no more byes – will probably get you 20 if you need to play him.
**Seb Kris $337k Raiders WFB, CTR - played 13 rounds - Good job security, scores range from 6-60 but will probably get you 20-30.
**Tyrell Sloan $345k Dragons WFB – played 14 rounds – can score a 50 with a try, can also score 8 points in 80 minutes.
The notable riskier options:
Sandon Smith $223k Roosters HLF - played 3 rounds - how long until Sam Walker is back?
**Brayden McGrady $230k Dolphins WFB, CTR - played 0 rounds - has he replaced Niu or is he back to Ressies next week? Too much uncertainty for Papa.
For me, I'm leaning towards Jed as a cashout and centre cover. If he gets benched, he'll still score 20 more points than Burbo has been getting me. Does anyone know if there's someone returning from injury and if he's a chance to lose his spot somehow?
