    AUTOFILL IS BACK!

    Moanaman has had to stand aside, but the literal champ from 2023 is here to run the league!


    HOW IT WORKS
    1. Create a 2nd NRL Fantasy team - for your spouse, small child, pet, whatever.
    2. Enter that team here
    LEAGUE CODE: 5M395NT6

    3. Create this exact squad (I will do a post later explaining how I got to this team)

    Cook
    Fisher-Harris
    Arrow
    Baker
    Hopgood
    Wong
    Hynes
    Flanagan
    Crichton (Bulldogs)
    B. Trbojevic
    Ponga
    Arthars
    Kini

    Curran
    J. Cartwright
    Boyd
    Hughes (Bulldogs)
    Stewart
    L. Fainu
    Iro
    Sloan

    You should have 55k in the bank and a tonne of problems, but...

    4. DO NOT CHANGE YOUR SQUAD BEFORE OR DURING R1.
    I cannot stress this enough people.
    You may change your C/VC and who starts, int, reserve. But the 21 is the 21!

    Every year there are 1-2 people that are dum dums, if I know who you are, I will publicly shame you on these forums.

    5. From R2 you can play as normal.

    6. Winner gets bragging rights and I guess I'll come up with a prize maybe

    A post later on how I got to this team

    I pushed the autofill button, and let just say Autofill loves some guns and cows. Main squad looked great, but it required 8+ 230k players to work.

    So I removed about half the squad - the cheapies that are nearly 0% chance to play, plus some expensive guys.

    Then I pressed autofill another 3 times, adding 1-3 players the Autofill selected each time.

    Then I lost patience and added 3-4 "fun picks", trying to ensure positional coverage, to get to the 21.


    Squad by Position

    HOK
    It's Damian Cook at Hok! This came up auto but been some chat about him being a good R1 pick so let's find out whether he's still cooking or is cooked together.

    Backup is Tananananananah Boyd. A good draft pick that stinks of midrange here. But he will provide points and dual position coverage

    MID
    A few mid picks at MID were auto-selected in JFH and Arrow. Arrow has DPP.

    It also went with the Baker along with Cook.

    I added the next Payne Haas (Sam Hughes) and his teammate Curran

    EDG
    HopGOD - 80 mins or bust. Also has DPP.

    Partnered with Wong - hopefully Wong is the right Roosters EDG!

    You can move around Arrow and Curran here, plus a couple of CTRs have EDG DPP if named

    HLF
    Hynes over Cleary

    Flanno will be a popular but risky nepo-pick

    As well as Boyd the squad is gambling on Latu Fainu getting Tigers 5/8 once he's available. Autofill wanted both Tigers Fainu's every spin, so I did cut one

    CTR
    I know everyone loves this position so we have a few - firstly,  Stephen Crichton with his new club should deliver at, uhh, 620k

    Then hopefully one of the off-season hype kids in Burbo, Jartwright, Iro gets a start. Two of them have EDG DPP, which is nice if they actually play.

    WFB
    Ponga is underpriced if he goes nuts like last season. Probably won't though.

    Arthars is cheap and also has DPP (another CTR). More fun than Cobbo, I hear.

    Have both the cheap but risky WFBs - Kini and Stewart. Again autofill wanted all the Raiders back so I showed some restraint here.

    I added Tyrell Sloan in position 21 for the lolz. Might actually be underpriced for fantasy. Still the worst regular starter in the NRL for real life.

    It has occured to me this team might not be a full 17 for R1. If it's really diabolical will consider switching some players out. Although it can't be worse than R27 last year

    if you want to change the team do it now

    Changing it in a week or 2 will likely result in a bunch of invalid teams who start off with this squad

    IMO Autofill is better the less it has in common with people's actual teams.

    If you start with half a team already in place there are less interesting decisions in the first couple weeks trading.

    Both posts make good points. After some consideration, I'm leaving it.

    I reckon it gets 17-18 on the grass R1.

    And even if it runs 14/15 in R1 we're all in the same boat. And then there are interesting calls to make like you say - balancing points v cash gen v squad depth.

    There's some truly diabolical selections here, but what the hey, that's part of the fun.
    It's no one's principle team.

    I agree with Michcow, you really don't want an Autopick team to be too similar to popular picks in main Fantasy land.

    In.

    Team is; Teeth Eaters.

    Love the in-need-of-urgent-repairs nature of the team. Should make these first few weeks pretty interesting.

    Question: can we make any trades now or do we have to wait until the end of Round 1?
    There's a few players that have been assigned that aren't going to get a run.

    Have to wait to next week, after R1 is finished.

    We will struggle to get 17 out this week.

    Getting 17 on the park this week will be a stretch.
