Fantasy NRL – Dump 'Em – Who shouldn't be in your team in 2013?
Being a Fantasy NRL coach (or at least a competitive one) leaves no room for sentimentality. Tough decisions need to be made and if players aren't producing points, they are just taking up space (and money) in your squad.
Last, but not least, here's a look at some of the guys to stay away from.
Corey Parker: For some time now, Parker has been a Fantasy NRL machine. But with Scott Prince now taking over the goal kicking duties, and lots of good young forwards at the Broncos to share the workload, $362,000 is just too steep.
James Graham: This might sound obvious with the Bulldogs forward spending the first 11 weeks on the sideline. But even when he gets back he will be off the pace and $272,200 may not see value until the closing rounds of the competition if at all.
Benji Marshall: Marshall finally seems to have a halves partner in Jacob Miller and this will mean less general play kicking duties and less try assists. Personnel changes at the Tigers and I don't think $382,200 will not be money well spent.
Brett Finch : Returning from Wigan, Finch has slotted into a bench spot for Craig Bellamy. The 32-year-old will definitely fill a role for the Storm, but coming off the bench, the 257-game veteran's $258,200 price tag could be spent elsewhere.
Willie Tonga: Well, 48 hours is a long time in NRL Fantasy League. I know I said previously to look at Tonga, but not getting picked at all in the line-up for round one will seriously hamper a player’s ability to score Fantasy NRL points.
