    Could be good for Whitehead though, not having to play CTR

    I wouldn't be surprised to be Bateman start in CTR in fact, especially with the re-shuffling going on down in Canberra, although i'm not sure they have enough in the pack to not use him at 2RF

    Kid is a fucking grub, kind you hate on opposing team but love at your own

    I think he is a 40- 50 point player, you won''t lose cash starting him, adjusting will be key

    If he starts 2RF he goes 80 and an excellent option for a GUN CTR spot as he is dual

    10. L. Bateman

    Another Whitehead though, won't get through the tackles as much but more attacking intent, but will be first to switch to CTR if there is a backline injury

    Yeah but Whitehead was never available at centre and Bateman is. Furthermore when Whitehead came to Aus he was priced at from memory about 35, this guys priced at 40 or something, we don't know because of this new voodoo pricing system. Seems more analagous to Soliola (I think before my fantasy experience) than Whitehead??

    Gamble and play him in the CTR could be a great option, underpriced GUN in that position for his fantasy capabilities, will make 25-30 tackles a game and has plenty of attacking upside might cap his top end around 48 simiar to Whitehead in terms of scoring

    When Solly came back he was available at something like $178,000 Shocked Shocked

    Far more risk involved with Bateman

    I'm a fucking sucker for forwards in the CTR over guys like Latrell/Marsters and previous guns falling in price and hoping for a return to old, I'm going to try and avoid these this year if possible

    There is merit either way. I started with Latrell last season after talking him up in the preseason. He was underpriced and finished as the top in the centre position cheer I also started with Aubbs! No

    Oh yes no doubt and I do get some right

    Latrell was one of my biggest regrets in not getting purely because of the way he scores, his average might be similar to that of an edge forward but its missing the huge scores he gets which wins matchups, I'm going to be more open minded this year for sure

    I thought Whitehead was available at Centre in his first season? Probably wrong though.

    It was my first fantasy season. No way he was available at centre. I can picture the crappy gui. Had the Saifiti brothers on the RHS. It was Surgesses year back and I jagged Cartwright! Barba was gold but if I'm not mistaken that was Feeney tradegy!

    If that's their paxk there might be more value in Luke Bateman than John. High work-rate, doesn't miss tackles, could put up Alvaro numbers at a discount if he gets minutes. However maybe they start Sia at prop and Bateman stays bench.
