DreamTeamers – with Round 11 looming NFI’s awake and ready to run you through some of the best Buy, Hold and Sells for the week, but without your suggestions, well I really won’t have any idea.
Here is the Market Watch for Round 11.
Rd11 Break Even: -31
Burst onto the left flank for the Panthers with scores of 28 and 43. If you’re looking for a WFB to make you some cash or you simply need a player for cover, he is a very cheap and decent option. He can find the line and with Davey Baby Simmo in hiding and Sandy Earl now looking for a career in modelling, you’d be mad not to at least consider him with a 30K price rise expected.
Rd11 Break Even: -42
Oh hurrell! Or is it Oh errol? Either way, it looks like this man mountain is in for the long haul. Yes, we got so worried for a while there, we actually put the question to the Warriors to find out what they had install for our good man Thunder Thighs. And whilst at the time of reply they were still ‘working to develop him’, it seems as though the coaching staff are now happy with their man. He scored 79 DT points in Rd 10 despite missing 5 tackles, and expects another huge pay rise. Not to be mixed up with Kony, invest in this Kiwi superstar.
I’ve got an idea: Josh McGuire – he’ll be worth every cent during the Origin period and is capable of playing big minutes.
Got a better buy than NFI? Tell him he’s dreaming below.
Rd11 Break Even: -15
Hold on tight to Gregory. Don’t let him slip like NSW did. Origin may have some effect, but if your looking for end of season glory, then you need him in your side. Can eat a meat pie, can shrug off a player or ten and can gallop down the sideline. The Rabbitohs have already had a bye and with coach Maggy McGuire moving him back to fullback fulltime, you’d be mad to get rid of him. His latest scores of 65 against the Cowboys and 98 against the Sharks is pure proof in the pudding.
Rd11 Break Even: 51
Toddy-to-hotty. A lot of DreamTeamers just don’t know what to do with the NSW five-eighth. I’ve got him, and I say hold on to him BUT it could depend on your $$$ situation and how many trades you have left. If you have plenty up your sleeve, then yep, he’ll drop a little in price and you may want to cash in on your profit and trade him back in after the rep period. If you dont have the coin, keep him %100. He can play as WFB or HLF.
I’ve got an idea: Keep a hold of Ryan Simpkins if he’s in your team. Expects a DT pay rise and with Lewis playing Origin and Ciraldo’s shoulder not 100% he could be a real solid option over the next few weeks.
Any other players you think are worth keeping for the time being? Please, do tell.
Rd11 Break Even: 35
Personally, I’ve had enough. He just doesn’t tickle my pickle anymore, and well, you know what that’s like. One week he scores 50+, then next it’s 20-odd. I’m all about consistency and with Brian Smith stocking his bench full of back rowers, I’m worried his minutes will slowly fade. Even if he does play the full 80 minutes, he doesn’t make enough tackles. Goneski.
Rd11 Break Even: 58
Lewi’s a legend and if Penrith ever punted him, there’d be an uproar. But I’ve gotta bite the bullett and I think giving the Penrith skipper the flick is the right move. He dropped 30K last week and his last three scores range from just 12-32. Not good enough for a back rower and with him out playing Origin and another solid price drop expected, it’s time, to stop being a black cat.
I’ve got an idea: Get ready to sell a prop next week, with Sam Burgess back on the paddock. His Rd11 Break Even is 71, so he’ll be ripe for the picking in Round 12, especially with no Origin duties and already having 1 bye.
Any other players you wanna throw in the scrap bin this week? Name and shame them below!
