    I’d go Tapine

    People say he’s frustrating but he’s averaged 55 and 53 the last two years. With 2 and 1 tries. It’s possible he does an AFB and scores 5-6 this year and you’ve got a near 60 average. Almost taking myself into him.

    Harris averaged 53 and it feels like his ceiling.

    McInnes role a concern - needs Finucane to be unavailable?

    Harris played injured most of last year.

    Tapine starts the season slow (due to Ricky), then finishes strong.

    Last season Tapine scored more in the first 6 games than the last 6 (even if you cater for the low minute game in R27)

    If anything his best scores are in the middle of the season (without looking further into it I'd guess as some of the other forwards are on origin duty, even if just Papalii)

    But if you want a player for bye rounds, then Tapine might be your man

    For what it's worth, in draft they went Tapine, daylight, Harris, McInnes.

    It can be interesting who goes first in the gun-to-head who will actually score more format of draft. Hunt, Hughes and SWalker all ahead of Fogarty in L1, for example. (Yes, I know they all cost more but not that much more).

    People say Tedesco starts slow too, but he came out firing in 2021, and in 2020 he scored 94 and 111 within the first 5 games (the first 2 games back after covid break, if you want to read anything into that)
    Last year his scoring was down in general, he couldn't crack 50 without a try - poor by his standards)

    He's had a few poor round 1 scores since moving to the Roosters, but if his scoring is as per usual by round 2, I don't think that counts a a "slow start"

    Are you keen on starting with him?

    Harris plays injured, or is out injured, pretty much all the time. I just see more downside than upside there

    But MID is fun because there a lot of them where you can make a case for 58 average or 50 average

    2020 and 2021 show Harris consistency.

    2021 - 13 straight games 55+ - 12 of these 61+!
    2020 - 13 straight games 49+ - 12 of these 57+!

    If not getting injured can put up scoring as good as Haas and Yeo for $150k less, and no Origin.

    Feels like more than once that I haven’t started with Tohu, he notches a few 65s, and then I make a silly sideways trade just for him to get injured. Not falling for it this year.

    Props to anyone if the gamble pays off.

    Don't think anyone is doubting that he's gun when he's on the field, but the dude is held together by string and tape.

    He’s now 32, still played huge minutes last year and averaged 53. Not sure 2020/21 is coming back.

    Wait until you see the Taumalolo stats from a few years ago.

    He has been in my team a few times when trying to work out what it should look like.

    He's probably declining. But also I think his amount of declining is overstated. Case in point, in draft last year he was pick #4. This year I got him at pick 35 which I thought was value.

    In fantasy, it's a toughie. I think he has some value, probably a couple of points at least. Will he be top 3 WFB?

    I'd have Ponga ahead, and Pappy if he's goal kicking (which isn't guaranteed). Mitchell about par depending on suspensions and injury, maybe slightly ahead too. And Walsh and Turbo could be anything. Ted's probably got value, but no slam dunk, he could keep declining.

    I don't completely hate looking at Lolo, tbf. I mean, he's not going any *lower* than he did last year, and there's upside if you're a believer. Tohu though could go quite a bit lower, and uses a lot more cash.

    Turbo is currently in my team. Leaning more towards getting gun backs with upside potential that could make your season, as there is so much value in the forwards, and very little to like in cheap value in the backs.
