Draft Breakdown: Waiver-wire targets, finals week two

We take a look at the best options to grab from the SuperCoach Draft wires ahead of Round 23, the second week of head-to-head finals!

Draft Breakdown

I hope a lot of you are still going strong in your leagues.

Unfortunately, I bowed out of my 14 man league last week, getting smashed by Turbo. I’ve still got a few other leagues I am hoping to make amends in but I need a few things to go my way.

Best call last round –  Stefano Utoikamanu – 82 points with a try, but his minutes were down on previous weeks so keep an eye on him.

Worst call last round – Joey Lussick – Spent most of his 55 minutes playing time behind his own try line and was only able to produce 26 points and isn’t an option unless playing 80 minutes.

This week I will be targeting players in the Storm, Manly, Brisbane and Warriors for my waivers and starting team.

Parramatta could go well against the Cowboys, but I just can’t trust anyone in that team at the moment.

Just a note that George Jennings wasn’t named last week but he would still be my number one target this week if named.

Let’s jump into the waiver targets.

WAIVER OPTIONS, ROUND 23

Heilum Luki (2RF)

Luki looks like a young player with great potential and as long as coach Payten continues to trust him with big minutes on the edge he should score well.

At the moment he is getting through enough base stats to be relevant, scoring 50 base points in 69 minutes last week.

He has the potential to get some attacking stats if the Cowboys can string any form together.

Thomas Flegler (FRF)

Flegler played 61 minutes for 75 points on the weekend and is benefiting from Broncos lack of middle players.

Walters also said it was a tactic to play Haas for less minutes last week and it’s something they will continue to do in the future – so there are plenty of minutes available for Flegler.

I don’t expect him to continue to setup ridiculous fifth tackle tries, but it’s reasonable to expect 50+ points with the Broncos’ relatively soft draw to finish the season.

Dale Copley (CTW)

Copley has never been SuperCoach relevant and I hope I don’t regret putting him on this list…

But he looked good against the Broncos, scoring 73 points which included a try from a kick.

The Roosters right wing spot, outside Walker and Teddy, continues to be one of the most lucrative positions for SuperCoach points.

He also managed to score 34 points in pure base stats. There are worse options you could put in your team as the Roosters face the Dragons this weekend.

Junior Tatola (FRF)

This year the FRF position has been arguably the weakest it has ever been in SuperCoach.

When healthy, Tatola is one of the more consistent FRF options and will get through some work this weekend against the Panthers.

Be aware there is an injury and concussion risk with Tatola.

Other options that have previously been mentioned but have good matchup’s and remain under 35% owned.

  • Enari Tuala (CTW)
  • Aaron Schoupp (CTW)
  • Issac Liu (FRF/2RF)
  • Jordan Riki (2RF)
  • Nat Butcher (2RF)
  • Chanel Harris-Tavita (HFB/5-8)
