    I wouldn't go as far as to say I have locks yet but I'll probably build a squad around the following:

    Cook, Fotuaika, Hass, Kikau, TPJ, Murray, Stimson, Tevaga, Cleary, Isaako, Brimson, Edwards, T-Trbo  


    Couple of interesting ones in there.

    I don't think Tevaga's role changes and I don't think he's under-priced, why him? Don't get me wrong he's a good player and had a great season but I don't see 2019 fantasy value there.
    Isaako played most games this year, didn't he? Are you expecting a positional switch or just better scores as he matures?

    I will be avoiding both Cam Murray and Arrow because there's just not enough value there if they aren't playing 80mins week in, week out. Murray might get that but he won't be in my starting squad.

    Kikau probably another one that I don't see value in.

    With Angus Crichton moving on, I guess that is where Cameron Murray starts to look more exciting, assuming he can crack a full time starting gig.

    I don't see how Kikau can do tonnes better than he did this year

    Last few years it has been the same formula, only the magic number has changed.

    ie 2018 average * MagicNumber = 2019 price
    3% discount for every game less than 10 played.

    Main exception is guys who have only played 1 or 2 games, who get priced differently (Caleb Aekins and Sean O'Sullivan could well be cheaper than their single game scores from this year would otherwise indicate) Were there any established first graders who only played 1 game this year? Not sure off the top of my head but if there is they could get an increased price from what the formula would set them as.

    From that list I find the below in the key undervalued category

    Anthony Milford - Bulk kick metres with attacking upside will probably see him as my starting half
    Tohu Harris - Slightly under valued on full game average
    Andrew McCullough - Unless there is a bench hooker he will be very tempting fully fit
    Cameron Murray - If starting lock will be about 5-8 points under valued. Sneaky feeling Crichton is replaced by an edge second rower as Murray's current role works very well for the team. Could see Matterson going to replace Crichton
    Dylan Edwards - Will pick up where he left off with keeper level scores at POD ownership levels. Kid runs like he is covered in spiders.
    Matt Gillett - About 7-8 points under valued. Competition for minutes with young guns like DFifita, Su'a, TPJ emerging as edge options.
    Jordan Rapana - After a down year his seemed to come into his own in the back half of the year. About 4-5 points under priced probably not enough to make the squad.
    Jahrome Hughes - Starting fullback he is one of my first picked. Has shown potential to average 50 odd in that role.
    James Roberts - Probably cheapest of keeper tier centres. If I choose to go with a gun here he will probably be picked.
    CHN - Competition for minutes but cheap for what he can give. If he gets a starting role will be worth a look.
    Curtis Sironen - Better than other options in the second row. If he gets the starting spot under valued by about 7-8 points
    JReynolds - If starting about 6-7 points under priced.
    Kerrod Holland - As a starting centre has a fantastic average. Lots of back line spots open at the Dogs
    Joe Stimson - Starting second row gig should see more consistency of scores.
    Moeaki Fotuaika - Needs to be at a different team for me to consider him but the kids work rate is insane. Built for fantasy
    Curtis Scott - Bounce back candidate after a down year.
    Jake Clifford - Should be good for 30-35 average putting him about 5-6 points under valued.
    Jack Williams - Seen as a possible Gallen replacement. If he doesn't go around again should see bulk points.
    DWalker - Back in the centres with Manly looking at improving for a top 8 spot.

    All fair points mate:

    My rationally for Murray is an assumption he gets a starting gig.

    Tevanga - you might be right, but its based on increased minutes (on average) and the fact that he was way stronger in the 2nd part of the season to the first (so form improvement).

    Isaako - simply that he improves. The kid looks quality and I reckon even at Wing he'll improve, but if he gets the FB spot then perhaps 5 or more undervalued?

    Some great picks by MS there.

    Gonna be impossible to lock anything down until we seem team lists - but fun taking a few punts!

    I'm going to pick Rapana. Just to avoid getting pissed off that he pinches so much ball from dummy half. Annoying git. Sanity pick.

    Hayne and Edwards I like. Tohu as well.

    DCE/Jurbo/Turbo as Manly will be shit again and lean on these guys. Points hogs.

    Bunch of rookies - ideas pinched from this forum.

    Locks locks locks.

    Something something, profit!

    Michael Morgan or Ben Barba at the cows? Morgo will be running the show next year. Jordy McLean has some big points at the end of the year too! When will CS9 points go down? With Hughes to play FB next year and Jacks moving on Crofty will have the half spot all to himself, he definitely started having the scores that I thought he would at the start of the year.

    Fanhub haven't even started rewriting the whole site from scratch yet, doubt they've considered salary cap.

    I assume it will end up the same as the actual NRL cap though. Bigger question is whether they stick to the 21 man squads or bump it up again.

    Do they conduct the survey asking for peoples thoughts on the platform/competition every year?

    If not, presumably they did so because they do want feedback. Will be interesting therefore to see what they change

      Current date/time is Wed Nov 21, 2018 10:02 pm
