    Joseph Suaalii & Billy Smith suffered concussions after a collision at training during the week. They won’t play in Round 18 & have entered the NRL’s concussion protocol. With a bye next week both players will be hoping to return in Round 20

    I need to start playing for overall next season instead of just H2H, as my Fantasy team interest takes a nosedive over the Origin period.

    Currently 545/8c seems OK, but I still have all 3 FB to play so not going to hold my breath re good overall score, but crushing my H2Hs this round.

    I noticed the App has been all over the place with scoring during matches, so assume the total is correct now.

    Hope all are doing well health/life-wise and are hanging in there over the toughest period with your teams.




    You all good mate?

    Think some points are gonna be left on the bench for those of us with more than 3 WFB's. Currently have Bula, Ponga and Drinky in there but Teddy could bounce back against Manly where there should be plenty of attacking stats on offer.

    Reasonably tempted with Elliott even if he misses rd 19

    Worth trading Billy to avoid playing with 16?

    I guess Kris would be the cash out (if $100k is enough to count as a cashout)

    Gives me extra player in 18 + 19. But spends a trade to do it

    WFB has become a bit of a headache for me and I'm currently looping Ponga behind VTW

    I'm a bit too overloaded at WFB tbh, and I'll still be short a WFB or CTR in 19 unless I blow a trade on one. I only have two trades to triage origin carnage and I'll need a HOK, HLF and WFB to field a full team if Cook and Hynes are picked as expected, so I don't expect to be using one on a WFB when I have so many already. I currently have Bula, Drinkwater, Teddy & Guth as pure WFBs, VTW & Manu with DPP centre and then Ponga as well. One is probably a good candidate for becoming Cleary eventually but I have no idea which one.

    Ponga I feel can sit in the loop for the rest of the year and is probably one concussion away from never playing again. Feels highly owned and probably locks up one of the 8 bonus trades by himself

    Drinky and Guth seem to be on a hot streak but it could easily be a purple patch, especially Guth with Moses/Dyl missing games

    Bula could fall apart without his playmakers

    Teddy might continue to be Darius Boyd or he might even become a James Tedesco and historically James Tedescos score well in the WFB position

    Latrell could be back soon too and could either be a genius POD or a huge waste of money and a precious trade

    Tough to care too much about the position when I have 2 trades, 180k and need Cleary and want Haas, Grant and Fifita

    Or bula could become the playmaker like Miller did with Ponga out.

    I've got Bula, Ponga, Teddy, Drinky, Edwards

    One will become Cleary, and other spare . Original plan was ditch Drinkwater, but on recent form he gets to stay. Bula may end up being the one to make way

    Have no choice but to play Teddy, Bula and Ponga this week. Oh the joys. I think I’d be happy with 3 scores of 35-40 to be fair

    As a current owner, don’t do it to yourself.
    He rushes out of the line constantly and misses tackles.
    I’m giving him one more chance this week.
    I certainly wouldn’t be trading him in now.

    Only got to last another 2 weeks before trades refresh anyway.

    Then I can trade Kris out to have 17 a few weeks later

    416/6c which is on par according to yaffs.
    Hopefully today's players go better than Ramien, Cook and Johnson did.

    I'm playing all of Ponga, Teddy, Bula and Drinkwater over JFH's 40 because while I do expect at least one to go 30 or less I have no idea which one it will be and I don't want to miss a 60.
