    If they are chasing points I see Smithers getting benched for guys that can offload.

    He could play 80 if they are trying to defend a lead

    Yeah, I didn't like that at all. I will keep telling myself it's only R1. But in a pinch;

    Turbo looked awesome last week in a team that looks like it's going to do things this year.

    Apart from that one play that Levi/Friz broke, Ponga didn't do much of anything and the Knights as a team looked terrible.

    Only R1, though, so hoping things switch up pretty quick. But purely on a R1 eye-test level alone, I sure wish I was on the Turbo train.

    Thanks Paikura, Leniu, and Sitili.

    lol. That's what the part of my brain that thought it'd be a good idea to punt him at the 11th hour last night to make way for Ponga is telling me.

    In reality, he didn't really do anything extra in that match, so is this pretty much his base?

    That's what I'm thinking. Pretty much all of his points in kick metres and goals. Exactly what I wanted to see from him. Couldn't be happier from the pick so far.

    Smithies is an absolute gun in the making. Not only is he in everything in defence, he's a true ball playing lock. Count how many touches he had as first or 2nd receiver and how many times he put the front rowers on the inside of him going hard. He went great. Made for fantasy. Offloads and LBs will come. He's a goer. Ricky would be ecstatic. He, Hosking and Fog owned the second half.

    It's his first game in the NRL ffs and some posters are rating him as ordinary already Rolling Eyes He'll turn out to be a fantasy must have. Just like Bateman was. Whitehead is an edge. Bloodnut is a front rower. This kid is a true loose forward. I already rate him as one of the top 5 scorers in the Mid position this year. Everyone will get him soon.

    I feel like I should have Fog, was in my team often, but couldn't make the numbers work. Not sure how he comes in now....

    J Saif - is he suddenly a 1 PPM player, instead of 0.7-0.8. Picked up extra minutes too.

    If I had Ponga, I'd personally be stoked with a 40 given his lack of involvement and how bad they were.

    Did the bin impact his output? Even so, he still looks the goods.

    Yeah 40 points and he's sub 500k? Oh wait, that was half a season ago when people were saying no way.

    Look at the late try. Smithies shuffles left, goes first receiver and helps create the overlap. First game in the NRL. 70 odd minutes. A footballer right there.

    8(c) / 385

    Sitili is what it is. Hoping he's good to go next week.

    Piakura is everyone's problem.

    I thought Strange looked solid everything he did and certainly didn't look out of place in a first grade side. Hoping he's allowed to kick at least a couple of kick metres in coming weeks, but he seems like a good player.

    Ponga definitely the most underwhelming so far on a dollar per point basis, but hoping it's just R1 cobwebs.

    Smithies, Wong, Burbo and Haas all get a Zooper Dooper so far.

    Levi and Cotric down in the basement could be worse. Levi obviously saved by the try and Cotric, without a try, probably as good as you could expect. Well, to be fair, I guess he scored as well as my starting CTR so I guess I can't be too harsh. Definitely an area in my team I need to work towards rectifying sooner rather than later.

    Is he "suddenly" a 1PPM player, or did he just get an Offload to Hand and a Turnover in the same game, something he's only done once before (when he also went at more than 1PPM) plus today was the second Try Save of his career

    You need to average out over multiple games to get a proper PPM, to avoid high scoring single events skewing things.

    Nobody is rating him as ordinary. He was excellent. But "ball playing" for a lock is not "made for fantasy", just ask Victor Radley. You get nothing for being the guy before the guy who assists the try or line break.

    And some of us watch Super League and know that offloading and tackle breaking is just not in his game. He's a grafter. That's great for NRL but not amazing for fantasy, Whitehead was the best offloader in England before he came to Australia, he could flip it out like Taupau and actually dialled his ballplaying way back when he hit Australia. Bateman was always a really creative player. Smithies isn't. He has barely any offloads, line breaks or even tackle breaks in Super League, where both those things are far easier to come by. He *does* have a shit load of tackles. He'll need big minutes to do really well at fantasy and the "doubting" is whether the minutes are there when three of the NRL's best ten middles are already in that Raiders pack.

    If Hors comes back in R3 and Smithies gets 60+ minutes then I'll get him for sure at about $600k. At that point he might look like a "must have" but not yet. Nice start if you're an owner, but not a rush if you're not.

    For Levi I care less about the score and more about the 57+ minutes. At his price, even 0.6 PPM, he makes really good money with those minutes.
