Fantasy Radar - Recap
The count down to Round 1 has officially begun, which means that it's crunch time for all NRL Fantasy managers. Here's a recap on our Fantasy Radar series.
If you think you have your team down packed, here is some updated information on the South Sydney Rabbitohs you need to consider...
Burgess is back baby! George Burgess might just be about ready to return to the top of the NRL players list. With a strong pre-season behind him and playing under a new coaching style, the big Englishman is a tantalising options for many Fantasy coaches looking for a bargain forward.
Walker was one of South Sydney's top players in fantasy last season and it doesn't look like he'll be slowing down anytime soon. The dynamic five-eighth will likely feature in many teams as a half but his dual positioning to allow him to cover at fullback will again ring true in many Fantasy managers ears.
While he may not have the price rise of 2017, the young Cameron Murray is ready to hit the on switch in 2018 and could prove to be a another Fantasy smokey. If the talented back rower can get big minutes this season, expect many coaches to jump on his bandwagon.
We said it before and we will say it again, Sam Burgess is the biggest Fantasy weapon on the South Sydney Rabbitohs roster. Big Sammy has the ability to score close to 60 points a game week in, week out and has the diversity to move across the forward pack.
Halfback Adam Reynolds may not have played a game in pre-season yet but there is no doubting his Fantasy prowess.
Tries, try assists, line breaks, kick metres and conversions, Reynolds can score points from all outcomes, which a lot of players can't offer.
We spoke previously about Tyrell Fuimaono's potential game-time in the centres but it seems like Head Coach Anthony Seibold will want the tough-running Fuimaono to remain in the back row.
This is great news for those looking to play the versatile forward in the centres in a hope to gain extra points from his second-row exploits.
The Captain is back and ready to soar. After, grinding out 20 minutes against the St George Illwarra Dragons in the Charity Shield, the mecurial Inglis took a step closer to a full return to starting action.
If he lines up in the centres like he did in Mudgee, he may not get the smaller points that fullbacks can pick up throughout the match. However, his opportunities to score tries will rise dramatically playing a little wider.
This gives fantasy coaches another tough selection headache ahead of Round 1.
