Dream Team Tips, Round 14, 2013

Dream Team Tips - Round 14, 2013


After a fortnight disrupted by byes, Dream Team coaches will enjoy the return of their full playing roster this week. It wont be enjoyed for long, with the second State of Origin bye week just around the corner.


Best of the Bunnies: Following their week off, the Bunnies will be well rested and ready to continue the charge towards the 2013 premiership.


Dylan Walker (HLF - $132,300) looks the goods after a solid start to his NRL career.


Not only is he a great Rabbitoh addition to your squad, he is also one of the cash cows of the round. His break-even is -13.


Nathan Peats (2RF/HOK - $128,500) reduction in playing time in 2013 means he is currently dirt cheap.


He shapes as a very handy utility for the Rabbitohs over the Origin period.


Coaches only need to think back to Peats 2012 season to know what he is capable of. He will be in high demand.


Best of the Rest

Cash Cows:
Any coach who missed West Tigers rookie, David Nofoaluma (WFB - $172,800), last week missed out on a $70k price jump on the weekend.


His break-even sits at -47, so its not too late to grab him to make some fast money. If he stays injury free and keeps posting huge totals, coaches may want to hold onto this youngster.


Isaac Luis (FRF - $132,700) return from a round 2 injury saw the rookie Roosters prop notch up 88 running metres and 13 tackles in 30 minutes.


As his confidence builds, so should his playing time and Dream Team scores.


Bargain Basement: Despite only averaging 34.5 for the season, William Zillman (WFB/HLF - $271,600) has a three round average of 52.


The Titans custodian has proven he is capable of a brilliant performance and appears to be on the way back to the form he hit at the end of the 2012 season. If he can hold this, hell be a keeper.


Benji Marshall (HLF - $209,900) has been one of the biggest Dream Team disappointments this year. He hit rock bottom recently and has finally bounced back with 62 points in round 13.


Benji should be mixing it with the best halves in the competition, which means his value could increase by another $200,000. If youre short of a quality half, picking him up now is a great decision.


Extra Origin Tip of the Week

Tip #5:
Continue preparing your team for the round 15 bye week and beyond.


Next week is the second Origin bye round.


The Broncos, Bulldogs, Cowboys, Dragons, Knights and Warriors all have two byes ahead of them. If you are considering trading players from these teams in, make sure you evaluate your priorities.


If you are focusing on overall points, it might not be a smart option. Head-to-head coaches shouldnt hesitate on a good buy if a player will only miss the bye weeks.
