    that's the problem with picking any rooster forwards. they have great forward depth & few of them can play big mins their edges are more than capable of playing in the middle. e.g. if wong starts & angus on the bench you don't know if wong gets a rest because angus will come on at edge or will wong play 70+ mins with angus resting the middle forwards. also the suspension of jwh throws a bit of uncertainty into the mix if for example you want terrell may.

    A 70 or even a 60-minute Wong is still around 10 points value.

    Egan Butcher? Sitili (may be used off the bench in rither mid or 2rf)? NButch (although expecting him to be in the middle).

    There's going to be so much rotation until probably post origin in that pack.

    With the strength of the roosters mids (JWH, COLLINS, RADLEY, LENIU, TERRELL, BS9/WATSON) im assuming Nutcher resumes normal programming on one edge

    Angus the other if hes anywhere near his best again

    Or maybe they just stick with the same plan as last year with Wong Dong playing 50ish mins and not returning

    It's a reasonable take; he's averaged over 60 only once in the last 3 years, so being priced at 64 he is unlikely to offer value (especially if you hold through to the first bye or beyond).

    I think selecting him is not really about making money anyway.
    At the top end you mostly hope that they don't lose value

    Hey Lads bout that time again. Haven't read much of the chat this year, but have been paying close attention to Made a team not gonna touch it till after trials, but let me know what you think of the team.

    Grant
    Haas Leniu Harris
    Piakura Wong
    Cleary Schuster
    Arthers Strange
    Papy Campbell S.Katoa

    Curran Lussick RFM Ofa
    Flanno Weekes Iro V.Fifita 109K ITB

    A few insider tips from me, Keep a close eye on Sloan in the trials, Got a mate in the dragons system who reckons sloans in for a huge year this year if he gets the fullback nod. Keep an eye out for Jamal Shibisaki around origin time, if he gets a crack hes a PPM monster with plenty of attacking stat upside even if he only gets 25/30 mins off the bench. Blake Mozer WILL take the starting hooker spot at the broncos at some point this year, guy is a gun and has had the preseason of his life...

    Cant see it happening this year tbh. Bit far down the pecking order atm. Yet to become a fully fledged 9 in q cup. I think Broncos would have to be well out of the 8 for drastic changes in 2024

    Sione Katoa is an odd pick? Expecting bounce back to earlier years/early draw?

    Kinda like Johnston where he scores loads of tries but doesn’t really have good base. Rest seems stock standard minus a few personally I think are traps (Leniu, Arthars)

    Strange and Weekes won’t work together. Both fighting for 5/8

    Speaking of bingo
    You're very close to striking Easy Tiger bingo
    Lay off the Matt attacks or you get to win a break from the forum

    Just a reminder that this is a fantasy forum. Disagreeing with someone's takes is fine, but this ongoing prodding a fellow fanatic is not

    Yeah fair enough but definitely someone to keep an eye on especially if there is an injury or 2. I think if he gets a crack it'll be hard to take him back out. Another one in a similar position is Tom Duffy at the cows, Chad Townsend could be on the out especially if cows cant crack top 8 this year. Tom Duffy is there guy of the future. Ik they have Clifford there as well now, but I wouldn't be surprised to see Duffy crack into the team at some point this year if they're underperforming.

    He’s a keeper though with keepers I don’t think as much about value as they’re set and forget like you say. . Haas starts the year big often too if you don’t have him and he takes off you could be left behind. No early byes either like a Murray does. Brisbane run isn’t easy early they’ll play Haas big mins

    I like the sharks early season schedule, he's a guy I'm hoping could make quick cash with a few good scores scoring a few try's so I can get another gun in early. He's done it before in stretches so here's to hoping he can do it again.

    If Leniu doesn't start he wont be in my team, But Penrith only ever used him in short spurts, so if he can get closer to 40 minutes a game then I believe there is upside.

    Arthurs I'm definitely not sold on, Just not a fan of starting with 2 base price centres, its burnt me in the past being stuck and not being able to upgrade them.

    Yeah definitely wont have both strange and weekes, so hopefully another couple of base price guys show themselves come round 1.

    i'm surprised ramien hasn't been discussed as a ctr option since the sharks have a great opening draw & he's cheaper than penisini...maybe the rd 1 game in nz is putting people off but from rd 2-4 they have BULLDOGS, wests, RAIDERS then the bye

    You still want value where possible in your guns

    Especially if it’s a gun you may sell over Origin

    Agreed.

    Seeking value in all non-captained positions means you theoretically (statistically) should score higher in any given round assuming you don't leave much in the bank.
