While 2021 was another forgettable season for Brisbane on the field, they provided Fantasy coaches with plenty of opportunities.
With a stack of players coming and going over the off-season, the new-look Broncos again could be fertile ground for coaches hunting value.
Payne Haas is once again the most expensive Brisbane player, despite his minutes and output slipping somewhat in 2021. This was flagged at the start of the year and while the drop-off was not dramatic, his price still took a correction through the season. His work-rate while on the park remained immense though and he starts 2022 as the fifth-most expensive player in Fantasy at $782k.
Tyson Gamble ($614k) is, remarkably, Brisbane's second-most pricey player though is no guarantee of starting the season in first grade.
There are no obvious cut-price keepers among the Broncos' ranks but TC Robati ($392k) will be terrific value if he ends up with a big-minute role. He averaged 40 minutes across 10 games last season with four of those being 26 minutes or less, but finished with back-to-back 59-minute appearances. Kobe Hetherington ($376k) is a similar prospect while Jordan Pereira ($327k) only played four games last year and is underpriced if he nails down a starting spot.
Rule changes: Six-again and in-goal escapes
Highly-rated rookie half Ezra Mam ($220k) is unlikely to start the year in first grade but is definitely one to watch out for. Billy Walters ($240k) also has some work to do to get a starting spot but the coach's son will make some money if he does.
Given the constant reshuffling of halves at Red Hill last year, don't get too attached to whoever Adam Reynolds' ($613k) early-season partner turns out to be because if the wins don't start to rack up early, there's every chance Gamble, Albert Kelly ($550k), Walters, Mam or others could be given a shot alongside the former Rabbitohs skipper.
