    They looked fine in their last game against, er, the Tigers.

    (They do have a decent draw to kick things off. Manly are the only team I'd expect them to get towelled up by in the first six rounds, and they could even win a few. But no "easy" draws if you're no good.)

    Only so long before Flanno and Sloan drag them down Very Happy

    Do they have the most boring forward pack in NRL? Outside of Su'a all polar bears

    I thought having a bunch of players locked out would mean I obsess about Fantasy football less, but I just spend the same amount of time just doing a carousel of far more limited options (mainly Harris vs McInnes and Kiraz vs Penisini vs May) over and over (and over) again. Surely this is what madness feels like.

    Wankers!!

    I think I might be a tad heavy in the Mid (like my current physical state) will see how the 2 big boy MIDs I have left go this weekend before overthinking next week.

    Decent enough start I suppose.

    Suli decent case for bounce back, but that Dragons team looks hopeless


    I'm at 6 MIDs, but no gun, so if you're at 7 then it might be overkill.

    Wong seems like a hold. Sitili and Piakura annoying with the stalled cash gen. Piakura pretty safe JS and hard to replace without spending up, so probably have to play it like Ford last year with the Rd 2 HIA and standown. If Sitili's out, I'll probably punt him for May, but hold if he's right. Ended up skipping Hopgood to take a big enough bank to upgrade anyone to May or whoever shinier shows up next week.

    Suli was pretty much the cheapest CTR I could find with JS and averaged over 30 in the past Laughing

    I have 80k spare so can’t do Sitili to May in one trade if needed. Unless I go Grant down to Robson or trade Ponga to Turbo which obviously I’m not gonna do.

    What an entertaining pick having Rapana in my team.

    Was scoring dogshit with high involvement for 38 minutes then saves his half just fucking around. Equally dogshit with maximum effort for next 30 minutes then the cramps come on and gets rewarded for standing on the sideline with a fall over the line try.

    Could be a 12-96 proposition for the next few weeks if he stays at fullback. So unpredictable he is fascinating to watch.

    For those who backed their logic and owned Smithies you got rewarded, I started with Hosking instead but think consistent scores of 55 is probably a better choice to start the season, Hosking is good to watch but think his score was a bit flattering. I think the risk of Raiders forwards returning is nullified by Youngs inevitable suspension sometime in the coming weeks for doing something impulsive so I'd be happy to have Smithies if I had him.

    I think he was "resting" at wing in attacking sets and going back to fullback in defence. He was obviously cramping up and shattered but it was a hot day and he hasn't played the trials, so not unexpected first time out.

    Rabbit wrote: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.

    Lot of 1%ers off ball as well. Shuts the gate well from A, supports ball carriers in get out sets and good kick chaser. Proper first grader

    I do own him so might have a little bias but I think Raiders will run him as big minute lock(60? 65? 70?) while Tapine, Papalii and Horse run riot at prop

    Fantasy wise bought him priced at 38 and I reckon his floor is 45 in 60 minutes, ceiling could be a 60 in 80 kind of guy. Unless he scores at floor he is probably a hold until round 16

    EDIT: If you don't own at this point you have to wait and see how it happens when Horse comes back

    Am I right in thinking hat and average score for round 1 should be ~740?

    Logic being 1-17 spend for most teams will be ~$9m. $9m/$13.5k pp = 666. Add on an extra 70 for captain double points and you get 736.

    Just interested in how my team is tracking. Currently 277/8, including Piakura. Not great, but only had one gun play so far

    I’d like to get a good start to the season one time

    This season is not going to be that one time

    Also 17/18 decision - Chan vs Salmon ?

    I think the extent of my fantasy decisions for the rest of the round is which one to play out of Chan, Flanagan and Salmon... exciting stuff.

    It depends on how many successful value pickups you have. The more you pick correctly the higher the score should be as your $-to-points ratio will be higher.

    Probably should be a bit higher as people will get players that are expected to score better than their price. But then we also have Piakura with the donut

    Personally I’ll be battling for 740 I reckon

    So Crossland 23 points in demerits without a sin bin. Gotta be close to a record right?

    I’m 8/283 but considering one was a 0 I think it seems fine.

    That also includes two injury affected Roosters and a centre (5/8 )who barely touched the ball last night.

    Depends so much on how highly owned players go and fantasy scoring in general for the round. Looking back at last year I scored 813 in round one which was a 13k rank.

    Also depends on what you class average as too because the average for "casual" players with say 17 players all from vegas will probably be very different to the average on here.

    Very true. Sometimes round 1 results are dictated by the teams your players are from, rather than the players themselves. You often see a team full of Eels or Raiders or whoever up top after one round.

    Round 1 really doesn't matter that much in terms of points, but rather your players getting the right role etc

    I was hoping for a 800+ score at the start of the round, but with the donut from Piakura a high 700s is more realistic, unless captain Cleary goes ballistic
