Can we trust Dylan Edwards to keep up the high scores? Jayden Brailey would have been a great hooker option during origin and the bye period, who should we consider now? What to do with J’Maine Hopgood now he has been benched? These are some of the questions that will be answered in the round 7 preview of buy, sell and hold. It’s essential to keep in mind that GameDay Squad is a dynasty fantasy football platform and that will be heavily taken into consideration in this article. Let us know your thoughts on who we have included below on all of our socials - twitter, facebook, instagram, discord.
South Sydney Rabbitohs - Centre (CTR)
I don’t generally recommend centres as they are very inconsistent, but Campbell Graham was huge for the Rabbitohs in round 6 and looked really dangerous on the right side. With four scores over 55 GDS fantasy points, Graham should be a staple in your side week to week outside the solid Keon Koloamatangi! He will be a solid player to own for years to come and a great dynasty option.
Penrith Panthers - Winger/Fullback (WFB)
Dylan Edwards was the highest scorer in round 6 with a whopping 119pts GDS fantasy points consisting of 4 tries (T), 3 line breaks (LB), 2 line break assists (LBA) a whopping 13 tackle breaks (TB), 1 offload (OL) and 190 metres gained (MG). Edwards has by far been the best performing WFB this season with scores of 57, 50, 82, 44 and 118. He has been very consistent and with the Panthers starting to click he will continue to produce decent scores. Edwards will not play origin so will be a very handy option over this time. Another great dynasty option for the future.
Wests Tigers - Half (HLF)
Unfortunately for Adam Doueihi it has been confirmed he has suffered a season ending ACL injury in a huge blow for the struggling Wests Tigers and will need to be removed from your squads. A real gun whom would have been very handy over the origin period. Other options who will fill the void will be Shaun Johnson, Adam Reynolds, Mitchell Moses, Dylan Brown, Jahrome Hughes and Nicho Hynes.
Newcastle Knights - Hooker (HOK)
Unfortunately for Jayden Brailey he has suffered the same fate as Adam Doueihi. It has been confirmed he has suffered a season ending ACL injury. If you were aiming to use him for the bye and origin period, I think Reece Robson or Wade Egan could be other better options. Hold onto Brailey though as he could be handy for future seasons.
Parramatta Eels - Middle-Forward (MID)
With J’Maine Hopgood being benched for two rounds in a row he should be moved out of your starting side as I think there are now better options, for instance, the returning Tohu Harris, Reuben Cotter. Also something to consider is someone like J'Maine Hopgood can regain a starting spot, then he can be re-introduced as he has proven he has the ability but whilst he is starting from the bench I think you can do better.
Manly Sea Eagles - Winger/Fullback (WFB)
It was not really the Sea Eagles night when they were soundly beaten by a rampaging Panthers unit. Tommy Turbo was hardly in the game but luckily for owners managed to dot down late otherwise his score would have been very ugly! 23 is not exactly pretty and the news coming out of Manly was that he was suffering back spasms and his performance was clearly affected by this which is why I think coaches should sit Turbo out this week especially against another side on the up in the Melbourne Storm. There is no denying Turbo is an absolute superstar but at the moment he just does not look 100% fit.
