It was a scrappy game on the weekend as a number of cheapies continued to rise in price but a new option has emerged in the difficult wing/fullback position.
Nick Cotric WFB | Price $518k | Score 78
For a winger to score 78 is an impressive effort. For it to happen without a single try is almost unheard of.
Although Cotric went close to scoring on two occasions, the NSW and Australian representative looks to have taken his game to the next level in 2020.
After scoring a respectable 43 against the Titans in round one, Cotric scored the fourth highest score in round two from any player.
Nearly all of that score came from tackle breaks, with the 21 year old busting through an incredible 17 tackles in the game. That alone gave Cotric 51 fantasy points.
Although it’s unlikely Cotric will score that highly every week, the round one score of 43 without a try shows that he could be a reliable option in a position without too many big scorers.
If you want Cotric in your side, now is the time to pick him up as his breakeven is only 23. If he scores an average of 45 over the next three rounds, his value could jump up to $643k.
Charnze Nicoll-Klokstad WFB| Price $569k |Score 36
He isn’t a buy now but it’s worth monitoring his scores and price after his HIA affected score in round one against the Titans.
With a breakeven of 59 heading in to round three, the Kiwi international could be an astute buy in a couple of weeks based on his 2019 fantasy scores.
In a fairly scrappy game, CNK scored 36 against the Warriors but if he starts hitting regular scores of 45, which he is more than capable of, he could be a good upgrade option in two weeks time.
