Eels V Bulldogs

We’d have to expect a high scoring contest here. Both teams have been struggling defensively so it could be worth saving your cap in the forwards. NRL Fantasy Tips:


Cameron King ($3,500) is the Eels’ new hooker and comes with a bottom dollar price tag. I’m going to take a punt on him over the Bulldogs’ alternative in Michael Lichaa ($6,100).


Sam Kasiano ($4,300) has been named in the starting side and should be the best value choice among the forwards. I’m also going to choose Daniel Alvaro ($5,600) and Adam Elliot ($5,700) who are two respectable mid-range choices that come with minimal risk. If you’re after for a high performer and don’t mind spending your cap, look no further than Nathan Brown ($8,000).


I think Clint Gutherson ($8,800) will once again produce a monster score but Kenny Edwards ($5,900) will be a better choice if you’re looking for safety. He’s much cheaper and has been named in the second row.

Outside Backs

I’m predicting the Eels to score plenty of points against the struggling Bulldogs. Brad Takairangi ($5,400) is my preferred mid-range option while Semi Radradra ($7,400) has a great chance to snap back into good form. Don’t rule out Bevan French ($6,200) as a viable option for your outside backs. He has every chance to score well this weekend.
