Our final week for the year and likely to be a few late changes so it will be imperative to keep an eye out for the late mail. Despite being the most expensive, I think you need to make room for Cameron Smith ($9,700). To pick anyone else is near guarantee to be sacrificing points.


Picked him last week and boy did Jack De Belin ($9,000) deliver. Line him up again this week. Another wrecking ball that should get into your side is Jason Taumalolo ($8,100). In what I view as a must win game for the Cowboys expect him to feature again heavily. For the cheapies I’m instantly picking up Mitchell Barnett ($5,100), he is an essential for his price. Finally Jacob Saifiti ($4,200) has been making a late push for form racking up some monster tackle counts.


Up against Newcastle I have to endorse Benji Marshall ($5,600) for possibly what will be one last swan song. Johnathan Thurston ($8,600) is currently very affordable and almost guaranteed to deliver at this end of the season.

Outside Backs:

Any of the Dragons backs are naturally strong options for this week and at decent prices. I will personally be looking to pick up Josh Dugan ($7,200) given FBs have been the ones cashing in against the Knights. Alongside him will be Kurt Mann ($5,900) who is their leading try scorer. Finally I’ve gambled on Lachlan Coote given I need another cheapie and he will need to deliver this week. If you have funds I would advise to look elsewhere however.
