Every week I will be looking at players still available in 65% of leagues. There may be better options still available in your league, but this article will be focusing on the players that are likely to be available in most leagues.
Last week saw some great opportunities for waiver pickups with the resting of many Origin and injured players.
Best call: Waqa Blake – Taulagi, Lawton and Blake all had great games, but Blake continued his work rate and decent scores after years of being mediocre. He remains a good option in the Eels matchup against the Bulldogs.
Worst call: Benji Marshall – Marshall at hooker is not for me as he was too gassed to provide decent service, let alone get involved in anything. I don’t think we will see him spend much time at hooker in the future, but he still remains an option if he is named in the halves over this Origin period.
Team lists have produced some great options for this week.
These are the under or overperforming players you may be able to pick up in a trade cheaply, or sell while peaking in SuperCoach form.
Murray Taulagi (CTW)
Taulagi is firing with a 3RA of 91PPG. While the Cowboys have a nice upcoming draw and he could score well for a few more weeks, there’s an opportunity to sell him off for a more proven player in a more consistent side.
Alternatively it may be worth holding for a couple more weeks for the Cowboys nice run, before they face the Roosters and Storm in Round 18/19.
Jarrod Wallace (FRF)
Wallace’s scores have been inflated in recent weeks with a try and a try-assist. He has a 3RA of 75PPG compared to a season average 57PPG.
You may be able to find someone that doesn’t look too far into his numbers that will make him great trade bait.
