    I'd hold Strange for the bye now. Maybe flick to Koula or the next hotness for Rd 14

    Thanks for the feedback everyone.
    WT, I think I'm with you on this one.
    I'll hold Strange this week and see how Koula goes at FB.
    Trades are really at a premium now.

    It may well be that he strings a few games together but anyone who has watched a Cowboys game will know he's a big honest toiler, prone to a dropped ball, not prone to an offload or TB who may barge over for a try from 1.5 meters out once every couple of seasons. He's a $500k FRF who is pretty much priced at $500k.


    He's Aiden Tolman with half the minutes

    It's a fair call. I think I'm more hoping for a mid-40 output during the Origin period. Probably stupid to hang my hopes on that one.

    If you want a MID in that price range, Oregon Kaufusi is the guy, as I've said earlier.

    Unlike Neame he actually looks like an attacking threat, has been busting tackles and offloading more recently, and the Sharks are a much better team than the Cowboys.

    If you wait on Koula and get him in R14, he is likely to be significantly more expensive and you only have him at fullback for rounds 14, 15 and 16, with a bye in 17 and Turbo expected back in R18. Not sure he will be worth it then.

    The two recent tries puts me off him, although the week prior to the tries he scored well, too.

    Alternative options are jumping on Nikora now and hoping he keeps building. Or, Moale for a cheaper option with upside of cash gen.

    Realistically I should be looking at WFB options but nothing jumping out at me besides the Turbo > Koula trade.

    His scoring has been pretty decent even discounting the tries, and he's in a team that'll give him a few. Brailey has been very good at passing short near the line.

    He's stepped up a lot this year, and looks much more dynamic. Moale's an okay shout but seems a bit ploddy for my liking, and Souths also suck.

    That said, if you don't need a MID and need a WFB instead, go that way. Could go for Dom Young if your round 14 numbers are decent enough, the Chooks draw is soft as baby shit for basically the remainder of the year.

    Don't mind the Dom Young shout at all. He's on a bit of a run. Could be worth the gamble. Cheers.

    Yeah he's a decent one, just keep an eye on round 14.

    The draw is disgustingly good, only a handful of games against genuine contenders (really just Sharks this week and Storm later on)

    Raiders
    Cowboys (origin affected)
    Bye
    Parra

    Yeah. This.

    The point for mine is that my team doesn't need another WFB this week.
    Koula would be worth it if he starts busting out 50 point games.
    I already have Ted, Armstrong, Garrick, CNK & Weekes covering the WFB position.
    Strange offers an extra Half and Centre cover over a couple of the big byes.

    He'll probably be under 500k still after 2 rounds. Besides, can't have them all. Keep grabbing the latest must have and you'll be out of trades soon.

    With a 50 average he will be $508k in the price predictor. If he isn't getting at least that, you wouldn't want him anyway.

    So, last night we said it would be interesting to guess who the alleged QLD 'star' was based on changes to teamlists. I'm sure we weren't the only ones thinking this.

    This morning Walsh withdraws due to a knee injury. That really is unfortunate timing for an injury, as lots of people will draw erroneous conclusions.

    I hope his knee gets better soon.

    It's two games. Even Teddy and Ponga score 20s. I'm not a "get them this week or not at all" kinda guy if there's value there.

    Is the assumption that the Walsh withdrawal & last night's unfortunate allegations are unrelated?

    Very unfortunate timing for him if so.

    I'm quite keen on Koula, but I think some need to tamper expectations. I know matchups and all mean nothing but his 4 games at FB were against the Dogs, Tigers, Raiders and Sharks. Next three games are Broncos, Storm and Penrith. Just something to remember. Playing the Bunnies in 16 though is mighty tasty.

    If it is just a 1 week knee injury, he may be a sell anyway. Will miss 5 rounds in the next 14 and is one less Origin player you need to worry about holding.

    I might need to change my avatar just in case, lol.

    Oh, I'm not an owner - he's never felt like a back 3 keeper. Just spitballing as a Broncs and Maroons fan.

    As others have said I'd probably hold Strange until round 13. 3 Knights players on bye next week so I need to keep some green dots around. I have Turbo, Piakura and Waddell who would all go before Strange anyway.
