    I think it confirmed for me:
    Start Burbo over Strange
    If Strange out, use Kris to loop bench. Or just get another base price guy if it exists

    Don’t like the options where Burbo is 18th

    I've currently got Burbo at 18. Kris and Strange at centre. Hopefully Burbo goes well, I leave it as is. Burbo shit's the bed and then Kris becomes a different cheap dpp. Strange doesn't get picked and I re-jig a few things, shouldn't be hard as I haven't gone too crazy on Vegas players.

    He also just got awarded a 3 year contract and is 22 years old.

    Like Kini, there is an outside chance that he can make the position his own with some strong performances.

    Schuster's versatility could come back to bite him and he might be preferred playing from the bench upon his return.

    Schuster bench with Burbo getting 50 minutes puts him in awkward territory as well, but couldn't complain for $250k I guess.

    You can run Burbo lower than 18 and still get his score in that scenario. Leave the 18 spot open in case another player unexpectedly scores well.

    Or just take Avo with not much value attached because he’s a relatively cheap starting CTR

    Shame that Zac Laybutt fella gets no discount like he would’ve in the good ol days

    Looks like Tesi Niu may have won a spot. Dolphins backline looked full strength in the second trial.

    Looks good to me. I don’t really see the value in Cobbo personally but I could very easily be wrong.

    I think if he’s named to start he’s a must, although I’m getting a lot of must EDGs now.

    Anyway would be tempted to run him as an extra CTR and if he’s a late scratch flip to Fleg or Luki?

    Aitken would be a huge risk imo. Hed have to be named to start over Lemu and id be worried that it was just temporary.

    Yes i am a biased lemu fan. Yes i think aitken is a fringe NRL player

    I like the DPP and reckon he could be this year's Gagai. Definitely a bit of a punt but don't think he has too much downside and a nice bye schedule through to origin. At which point he's either a keeper or he can get yeeted.

    I think the value is just that he probably keeps scoring well, fun to watch, no byes until origin, and most importantly he can possibly make all your other decisions regarding back 5 work given his useful dpp. As someone wrote in one of the team trackers, you can probably have one pick that doesn't need to have value and is just there to make things work. I have considered. Same applies to RTS assuming dpp. Currently got Kris in there though.

    Just a thought. People picking Hopgood, who is your VC going to be? Are you picking Haas/Murray as well? Or Hopgood for VC. I'm usually pretty apprehensive about About locking in a Sunday playing VC on a Thursday night, I'd be a little more concerned leaving it a week...

    I really hate the initial building of my team, worst part of the year haha.

    At the moment my main headache is playing Grant and only one gun mid/edge or playing another hooker like Cheese and having 2 gun mid/edges.

    Are we expecting Stone to get Gilbert’s position? If so, does this make him a better choice than Tatola?
