NRL Fantasy

I'd just like to open this week with a big thank you to my good friend over at the Renegade Analytics Department. Before Round 16 I floated the idea of bringing in Mitchell Pearce. RAD pointed out that on current averages, Cleary would score 5 points less than Pearce for the rest of the season. But with the likelihood of…
We are almost through what has been an apocalyptic bye period for many of us. On paper (or bye planner spreadsheet) this round doesn’t seem that bad but neither was round 13 or round 16 and look how they turned out. People should be really close to final teams and by round 20 your teams should be done, pending injuries.…

Break Evens: Round 19

Warrior's rake Nathaniel Roache leads the way with the lowest BE this week of -17. I would expect Issac Luke to return from injury though.Raider's rampaging winger Jordan Rapana is the co-owner of the highest BE of the week of 83. He shares this distinction with team mate Adam Clydsdale. BRISBANE BRONCOS BE Price Average Value Price Diff George Fai…
What we learnt: Bulldogs v Knights Check out the action from the Belmore Sports Ground. 1. Dogs edge the Knights at the death For some teams losing is a habit, and so it is for the Newcastle Knights. Today they were the better team for the majority of the match and looked likely winners against the Bulldogs through most of…
This game was going to be all about Curtis Scott….wait…Curtis Scott isn’t playing….what? Honestly what a mess. At one point I was going to have 17 players this week, now it is at 13 and this hasn’t been an unfamiliar feeling for fantasy coaches all bye period. For the record he apparently has an illness, rather than injury and with…
Daly Cherry Evans has got things right at the right time of year for fantasy coaches. Since the Sea Eagles finished their byes DCE has scores of 55, 55 and 61 tonight. He’s still way too reliant on attacking stats so some below par scores are going to come but this period has been really nice. Nathan Cleary didn’t quite…
What we learnt: Roosters v Rabbitohs Check out the action from Allianz Stadium. 1. Roosters hold off the Rabbits The Sydney City Roosters overcame the absence of their Origin stars to beat their arch rivals the South Sydney Rabbitohs 14-12 at Allianz Stadium tonight. Leading 8-0 at the break courtesy of a try to Joseph Manu and a strong first…
Before you started playing fantasy you wouldn’t believe that a minor knee injury to Lewis Brown could make you distraught or a surprise bench appearance for Luke Yates could make your day. But fantasy does strange things to us all. There’s no time of the season that heightens are emotions quite like the bye period and this bye period has…
Well the curse definitely reversed and bit me in the bum this week! With McGuire taking a trip to Disneyland and JBrom dying, my week and Eliminator was doomed. I rallied late to score 874 and drop back to 223 yet still lost the Eliminator. That pain is set to be multiplied this week with my 9 players pre-trades being…
Curtis Scott just has to step on to the field and he'll make $20k this week. His -31 is the lowest break even we've seen all year. Here's all the Break Evens for the teams playing this week. Parrammatta Eels Name BE GP AVE Price Cameron King 4 1 33 150,000 Mitchell Moses 10 16 33 283,000 Kirisome Auva'a 13…
We have our finalists!!In both match ups, the losing sides left points on the bench and will rue their selections.Liam D and his team 'RNGD Elbanditos' managed to overcome the poor score of Jason Taumalolo as captain to claim victory.We now look forward to Round 19 for the Final! 
This was a 2014 era performance from the bunnies who overcame a slow start to completely dismantle the Panthers. The Rabbits’ spine had their best game of the year with Adam Reynolds in particular having a superb game (65 points, two try assists, a line break, a line break assist and seven goals). Alex Johnston scored five tries (but he…
When people predicted that Luke Brooks was the next Andrew Johns they clearly meant in games when Brooks was playing against the Knights. That’s probably true for a lot of halves but this was one of the better games Brooks has played in a while. In Brooks’ 2013 debut it was his running game that was the most impressive but…
Raiders demolished at home.1. Negatives!!When the biggest talking point from the match is the temperature, you know it's a real bludger. A game that we would've expected to be deciding Top 4 spots is more likely to be deciding if these teams still have a season ahead of them.2. Rubbish RaidersAlready going into this game (& season) without a single…
Manly mow down weak Warriors.1. SBWStupid. Bloody. Warriors. Only one team I know could be up 16-0 at the 18th minute and lose. New Zealand, maybe they'll blame the 5343km trip to Perth, maybe they'll blame the weather. But the facts are this club lets their fans down on the regular so we don't need an explanation. 2. Manly the…
Sneaky Sharks destroy Rascally Roosters 1. Sharks win battle of the heavyweights. With today likely being a preview of a match you'll see deep into September, Cronulla have made a statement and given us something to look forward to. James Maloney and Mitchell Pearce putting in typical origin performances was a key factor in the Sharkies getting the points today. …
What we learnt: Broncos v Storm Check out the action from Suncorp Stadium. 1. Storm destroy the Broncos The competition leading Melbourne Storm produced a 30-point hammering of the third-placed Brisbane Broncos at Suncorp Stadium in the second game of Friday Night Footy, winning 42-12. Suliasi Vunivalu, Josh Ado-Carr and Curtis Scott all crossed for the Storm in the first…
What we learnt: Titans v Dragons Check out the action from Cbus Stadium. 1. Titans too good for the Dragons The Titans proved too strong for the Dragons in the first match on Friday night footy, prevailing 20-10. Leading 10-4 at the break (with two unconverted tries to Anthony Don), the Titans managed to hold off the Dragons in the…
What we learnt: Eels v Bulldogs Check out the action from ANZ Stadium. 1. Eels sneak it in extra time In what was a reasonably interesting game despite pre-game predictions of a bore fest, the Eels backed up their win over the Dragons in Round 15 with a 13-12 victory over the Bulldogs in extra time. Leading 12-2 after the…
We're down to 4 teams in the Renegades Eliminator as we inch ever closer to the $500 cash prize. With a rest next week before the final in Round 19, this will be the final chance for our gun coaches to run a full team. For these four coaches to reach this point they would have missed the majority of…
