The Must-Haves

James Tedesco, FLB ($482,000)

"I think with Robbie Farah and Aaron Woods both being established Origin players, I think they'll be in there again for the Blues and will miss that part of the year. A lot of people are expecting James Tedesco to get there, but just because he's not established there already, I'm leaning towards him. I think he's going to be in for a big year again — obviously scored 17 tries last year, and I wouldn't be surprised to see him top that number in 2016." — Brock Corfe

 

The Mid-Range

Sauaso Sue, 2RF/FRF ($325,000)

"I expect Sauaso to pick up his minutes again this year and put in a lot of work in the middle of the park. Sauaso is stepping into the leadership role too, so I think he'll be in for a big 2016. He's also a great dual-position player so he can slot in at prop or second row." — Brock Corfe

 

Tim Grant, FRF ($282,000)

"I think you'll see his price rise pretty quickly this year. His price is based on last-year's numbers at Souths with reduced minutes, and I think you'll see with Galloway andTaupau both leaving the Club, you'll see Tim's price rise as he gets more minutes and his work-rate increases as a result of that. He'll also be really handy over that Origin period." — Dan Talintyre

 

Chris Lawrence, CTW/2RF ($279,000)

"Chris made the move into the back-row halfway through last season and I'm looking forward to seeing him step up in the back-row full-time this year and get through a lot of work in defence and attack. He can also play in the centres too in NRL Fantasy, so again, another one of the dual-position guys that are really handy to have in your squad." — Brock Corfe

 

The Cheapies

Jordan Rankin, HLF ($179,000)

"Jordan has come over from Hull FC and really impressed the coaching staff all pre-season, so I'm looking forward to a big year from Jordan. He's also a noted goal-kicker, and with Pat Richards heading off to France, there's an option there for him to kick goals. And if that does happen, I think he's really good value at just under $180,000." — Brock Corfe

 

Rod Griffin, FRF ($130,000)

"I think Rod is really capable of pushing into this squad this year. Maybe it's a bench spot or through Origin, but you'll definitely see his minutes and his work-rate increase throughout the year, and that should see his price rise pretty high — a bit of a cash cow!" — Dan Talintyre
