Fantasy Tips - Rd 17, 2014
Another major bye-week means coaches will be scrambling to field a full complement of 17 players.
The last of our major bye rounds is here and coaches will surely breathe a huge sigh of relief after round 17 is complete. Origin Stars are out yet again and coaches will have to keep an eye out for any late changes with 18th and 19th men returning from their respective representative squads.
This week, the Rabbitohs face the Gold Coast Titans in a Monday night blockbuster. Greg Inglis and Ben Te’o are in camp for the Maroons, meaning they will take no part in the match. Both players are very popular in Fantasy this season and coaches will have to adjust accordingly.
The Knights, Broncos, Eels, Raiders, Warriors and Storm all have the bye which means they will not score points this week and either have to be traded or used as a reserve.
Good luck with the major bye round!
Drury Low, Bulldogs – Drury is an awesome mid-season cash cow, he has a great ability to finish tries and will surely grab a few in the next couple of weeks. With Sam Perret out for another 4-6 weeks, his job security is pretty solid.
Tautau Moga, Cowboys – Is a future superstar and has been rushed into the Cowboys’ line-up after signing from the Roosters last week. He has been incredible in the NSW Cup for Newtown and has a very high work rate as a centre.
Jacob Gagan, Sharks – Has been very solid since his debut and loves to get involved. He is a safe option who can give you some cover at either wing or fullback.
Isaah Yeo, Panthers – The return of Jamal Idris means that Yeo will be back in NSW Cup and will find it hard to force his way back into the 17.
James Tedesco, Tigers – Has suffered yet another season ending leg injury. No doubt when fit, Tedesco is one of the best fullbacks going around. Unfortunately though, he is now a must-sell.
Todd Carney, Sharks – Will no longer be part of the Sharks NRL squad. Is a must sell if you have him and can be traded for another quality half.
