    I think I’m going Haas (c) and Murray (vc) but still not sure. Might still Cleary (c). Might still cut Haas and just go Murray

    Definitely locked in Cheese, Sitili + Wong (pending final teams), Piakura, Burbo

    Flirted with Turbo for a few days but not convinced

    I personally don’t see the upside in starting with Schuster. I’d rather wait and see how he looks if/when he returns. Niggling calves are a hassle and I would be surprised if he comes back and starts Round 2.

    Hope it works out for you. In the event it does, I’ll probably just bring him in before Round 3. Any money he makes in that week is likely offset by having 2 weeks cash gen of someone else not named Schuster.

    I always see people planning future trades like they won't have any other burning issues in a few weeks. I think the alternative hypothesis, that they will persist with Burbo, when they have Schuster to play on the EDG more disturbing. If I am wrong, then i will eat my humble pie. I intend to save trades this year and round 1 is a unique opportunity to give myself a chance to do it. For the same reason i don't mind if some of my players have early byes, if they can be covered really easily. So many trades are typically wasted on covering byes. If you can get a few of those issues over early and pick players you expect to keep in for the long term, I think you will see the benefits.

    Trades are worth around 150k right? i don't expect anyone to make that much from a 400k player in r1

    What do people make of Teddy's 2023 year, and likely performance for this year?

    What Got Me Interested in Teddy

    First 9 games of last year average = 37
    Last 11 years of 2023 average = 59

    What is Suddenly Putting me off

    Games with Walker in 2023 average = 39
    Games without Walker in 2023 average = 54


    Walker played the start of the year before being dropped, so was Teddy's poor scores in the first half due to the team/Teddy or Walker?

    The "Walker is not the problem" theory is backed up by 2022 stats where Teddy played with Walker all year and averaged 54. No games without him.

    The "Walker is the problem" theory is backed up by 2021 stats, where Teddy averaged 64 without him and 57 with him.

    For me picking Teddy is a gut call - is he on a permanent decline or still one of, if not the, top fullbacks in the game and in fantasy? If you're picking him (and I like it as a call), then I'd say you're picking him pretty much for the season absent injury/suspension.

    Would love some thoughts on this team:

    BSmith
    Haas (vc), Cotter, Tupouniua
    Wong, Piakura
    Cleary (c), Hutchison
    Suli, Strange
    Turbo, Papenhuyzen, Weekes

    Robson, Palasia, Flanagan, Sezer

    Salmon, Arthurs, SHughes, Olam


    Obviously one of Strange/Weekes will go when teamlists are named.
    If Weekes is named then I can move Olam into CTR and Arthurs score.
    If Strange is named then I have to find a new WFB and Kini would be a last resort.

    Salmon will stay if named at lock and if not, hopefully Curran gets that spot and can come in for Cotter.

    Not convinced with Flanagan but he will stay unless a better option presents itself.

    No interest in Tatola mate?

    I was interested in Turbo too, feels like one you either start with or leave. No way I’d chase

    If Cleary was out for any reason you'd be laughing, lots of teams would clear and start again.

    Not selecting Burbo - too much risk.

    Schuster could have his spot next week.
    If he's not - Lawton, Waddell, Bullemor or even Parker could be named.

    That sounds like next season Leniu may be on the menu when JWH leaves and he gets a starting spot.

    If he puts up 100+ in R1, everyone rips their team apart to get him in.

    Not convinced with Flanagan but he will stay unless a better option presents itself.

    Happy to oblige. Overall looks pretty solid, maybe one gun short of some other teams with a few extra mid-rangers?

    - picking Sezer on the bye is a bold call. Not sure why he is going to go beyond his BE (35) which is actually more than his historical average. Hutch, Flanno,and Sezer kind of feel like the same category of player - you could drop one of them at least for someone like Luki, Smithies or Lussick (if no hooker on the bench)
    - same to some extent with Olam, although I think he's a better chance of picking up some cash. I like the Suli pick.
    - I looked at Arthars, his DPP is handy, but his scores are consistently average. There might be better (or at least cheaper) WFB backup out there.

    I can't see a Supercoach thread.

    I just created a team and want to make sure I am not missing anyone that is heavily mispriced compared with Fantasy.

    Seeing the best value in:
    Taylan May
    Plath if he gets lock
    Smithies
    McInnes
    Salmon
    Teddy

    Anyone that is must have that is missing?

    I wouldn't run all 3 guns at WFB, drop one for Bostock (Phins winger cheapie) and use the money to upgrade Galvin to someone who will actually play

    In 4 first grade games playing 80 minutes, Bostock has had scores of 11, 15 and 16 with a try. He wouldn't be getting near my playing 17.

    Not sure that he gets a start over Sullivan initially. Could be on the bench (which could mean single digit scores and kill any potential cashflow in the future). He looks good for a young guy, but not sure he is ready for a R1 start.
