    Granville averaged 32 min from the bench last year from 15 games. And fuck all of those minutes were for Robson. I'd prefer not to see it, but big minutes from Cotter or Lolo because Granville won't get any is not something I'm betting on.

    Granville is 35 years old .. he wont get anymore than 15-20 a game

    This just made me look at the stats, last season Lolo threw only 3 offloads all year. In 2022 he threw 21...

    In 2022 Payten brought the Cowboys within minutes of a grand final. Maybe he likes a offload-less Lolo.

    You're saying, 'if I have this absolute confirmation, then there's upside'. But most of these outcomes we only know with hindsight.

    So in the absence of complete information, the upside is 'he might continue at FB where he has traditionally scored well', and the downside risk is 'he might get shifted to the wing again where he appropriately priced'. Up to you to balance those risks.

    I agree, that's fantasy. I'm hoping for more of a strange situation where he has purely beaten the other guy out of contention. I'm still gonna try squeeze him in for Ponga and upgrade elsewhere

    In the first week of the finals that season, Lolo played 82 minutes, for 95 fantasy points. Included 270 run meters, 42 tackles.

    Then had 64 minutes in the prelim final. Just 18 months ago.

    Look at the other players around his price, and tell me you expect more of them than of Lolo

    Do we need to start a thread for him?

    Only if there is lots of Milo memes and gifs.

    that's what they said last year. Payten loves him. I'm still low key hoping it's just a troll and come Sunday he changes it up.

    Also worth noting that Cotter had scores of 86 and 87 in that finals series. Is a big game player.

    A question for Fogarty and/or Luki dodgers. In a nutshell, is the reason you are dodging these guys essentially because their BE is not far off their average in their current position? Obviously it's not as cut and dry as that (as they say in the movies), but is this essentially why people who aren't going with them doing so? Possibly not much value in them? I am thinking of becoming one of the non-believers.

    Just turned my team on it's head and I'm still not happy with it, but I'm having a few revelations tonight and letting them take control. I just hope they're not Shit Revelations. They probably are.

    In the 6 games Lolo has started at Prop, he averages 41.5

    3 of those games were back end of last year.

    Small sample size but...

    Also, some of Lolo's worse scores last year were playing with a knee injury, that he tried to battle on with before having surgery.

    Anyone, he isn't the worry in my team. Its everyone else I'm struggling with

    I had both in my team yesterday. I still think they are great picks. Can't have them all. I still think Fog elevates a few because of GK and retains bulk KM, with upside of primary playmaker and downside of Raiders potentially being shit finely poised. Luki could be anything, he's a weapon. Could be my biggest regret. but most times he was subbed off last year, Finefuki got the balance of his minutes. He'll make money with 60 minutes, but I was hoping for a slam dunk.

    You suggesting you've locked him in without concern?

    His name and that price. It certainly stands out as I scroll this price range...
