NRL Fantasy

1. Des Hasler is lucky...Very, very, lucky, that Brad Abbey copped a high shot and had to go off for a HIA. As soon as that happened the game turned. Matt Frawley came on and damn near single handedly won the game for the Bulldogs. Mbye and Reynolds just do not work as a halves partnership and if Frawley isn't…
This is for the lovers of statistics. The people who love numbers and data. The number crunchers among us. At this link you can find the Fantasy Data for every player and every game from Round 1 2014 all the way to Round 5 2017. Want to see how Andrew McCullough has scored when he's played 80 minutes? This is…
What we learnt: Broncos v Roosters Fantasy learnings from the action in tonight's game at Suncorp Stadium: 1. AM9 train rolls on Andrew McCullough addressed concerns about the presence of Kodi Nikorima on the Broncos bench for tonight’s game, by playing the entire 80 minutes and pumping out another massive score of 76* points. However, a word of caution against…
After a few weeks with average scores in the top 5k between 741 and 758 this week saw a big improvement. This is probably attributable to a few factors: first there were less scores in the teens by the cheap CTR/WFB players, people are probably starting to see the impact of upgrading their teams and there were just a greater…
Once a cash cow has reached their peak price you decide whether to upgrade them, or cash them out. The cash out process is where you trade a cash cow to a cheap player and use the cash to upgrade another area of your team (or just leave it sitting there so when other people say they only have $9k…
Let's jump straight into your questions. Is it worth waiting to see how whitehead goes first before trading him in for Yates? Not too sold on him at the moment, my reserves would be Brailey, Hess, Kaufusi and CHN if I didn't trade in Whitehead, if I brought him in I’d replace Brailey with him. Kellen Wilde Whitehead, aka Pimple,…

POD team round five

A bit of a come down from last week with 800 seemingly the par score, the POD team was back to mediocrity with a 734 and a drop back to 11k in rank. Some unfortunate trading circumstances and some late outs was very detrimental for this weeks score. Here's the team: As you can see Yates is in the starting…

Scarfie's Scraps

Why I hate this game: My rank is fast becoming rank My rank is dropping faster than a racist slur from Pauline Hanson’s mouth BUT the season is a marathon not a sprint. Patience is key. Unlike most years our crop of cashies seem to be slow burners so the key is to cash them at the right time. Unfortunately…
What we learnt: Tigers v Dragons How it happened at ANZ Stadium 1. Nightingale still irrelevant Jason Nightingale topped the fantasy scoring in this game with 71* points. But don’t be deceived! While Nightingale had a cracker of a day out scoring a hat-trick, it goes without saying that this won’t happen every game and, therefore, it’s best to consider…
What we learnt: Warriors v Titans Check out the action from Mt Smart. 1. Foran’s return – ‘take-two’ Kieran Foran provided some much-needed direction in attack in what was his second go at kicking off his 2017 season. However, despite his presence and despite the Warriors eventually getting the win, there is still an aura of “marshmallowness” hanging over this…
What the heck happened to our hero Kaufusi? This was by far Felise’s worst game of the season thanks to having six missed tackles. And here’s an interesting stat: Kaufusi hasn’t had a tackle break since round 1! This was the first round all year that Kaufusi was outscored by Kenny B. Hopefully this is a one off. Kaufusi wasn’t…
Aidan Sezer just managed to beat out Trent Hodkinson’s effort from the earlier game. But 14 points! You can not be serious. Sezer had 8 tackles. 8! And he missed 4 tackles too. He only kicked for 96 metres. There’s some seriously non-existent players in the halves this year. Hopefully you didn’t get onto Joey Leilua this week. His price…
Brendan Elliot picking up from the back of the scrum and racing 80 metres was the sort of run we normally see in black and white footage. It was an odd defensive lapse from the Sharks and let the Knights back into a game the Sharks largely controlled. That being said the Knights were super impressive and their defensive attitude…
After a couple of thrilling matches to start the round, things were not so exciting as the Rabbitohs hit Townsville.1. Hess disappointsFollowing a two try performance for 80 points last week, Coen Hess was less than brilliant tonight despite getting the nod to start. Named at prop, Hess played on the right edge and struggled to 19* points in 50…
Another nail biting finish in Round 5 saw the Roosters knocked off for the first time this year.1. Mitchell Pearce is the best halfback from NSW.Surely there can be no denying it now. A fantastic performance from Pearce led to 69* points. His score was highlighted by a try in the second half but with the majority of his score…
An intense Thursday night affair led to some interesting observations, including rule #2...1. Don't trade gunsIt's been bandied about a lot this last week with some less than stellar performances but one Mr James Graham really showed us why this week. Yes he got some extra minutes but Graham was an absolute beast on his way to 72 points. He…
Every week, the Renegades Team get together over a chicken parma and an ice cold beer to help out a fellow Renegade with their team. The aim is not necessarily to prescribe a number of trades. Rather, we document the process of improving a team, explaining our logic and rationale, so that the coach and readers can apply the tools…
