Corey Parker bounced back into the NRL Fantasy good books with a strong performance in Round 2.

Last year's grand finalists boast a lot of big names and Origin stars, and will once again be a popular team for NRL Fantasy coaches in 2016.

Fantasy guns

Corey Parker: Arguably the best Fantasy player in the NRL, Parker simply does it all. The reigning State of Origin Player of the Year makes a ton of run metres, tackles, tackle breaks and offloads each season while also kicking goals for his club. A super player with a proven track record, Parker is almost a must-have at the start of the season (if you can fit his hefty $559,000 price tag under your salary cap).

Ben Hunt: A quality all-round halfback playing behind one of the best packs in the competition, Hunt is a Fantasy star thanks to the fact he dominates the Broncos' kicking game (hence a lot of kick metres) plus the fact he's got a great running game. Hunt ranked second amongst Fantasy halves behind Dally M winner Johnathan Thurston in 2015.

Andrew McCullough: He isn't the flashiest dummy-half in the game but McCullough is a no-nonsense tackle machine and a super-consistent Fantasy scorer. The second-best hooker in Fantasy last year behind Cameron Smith, and didn't miss a game all season.

Value buys

James Roberts: Roberts ranked third among centres for total Fantasy points last season, and that was while playing for the lowly Gold Coast Titans. Having moved to one of the best teams in the NRL (and the likely competition favourites), Roberts is set to get even more attacking opportunities this season. A natural tryscorer with tremendous speed, Roberts is set to be a popular buy this season and is available at both centre and winger/fullback.

Josh McGuire: The 10th best prop in Fantasy last year based on average points per game, McGuire was restricted to just 13 games in the regular season but could benefit from the NRL's reduced interchanges this season as a big man capable of playing big minutes. Last season he played an average 50 minutes and scored 48 points per game, and if Bennett opts to get more out of his busiest prop in 2016 you can expect to see those scores go up.

Joe Ofahengaue: He'll start with the awkward price tag of $184,000 but Ofahengaue could be a big improver this season after scoring 20 points a game off the bench in his debut season.
