The Roosters' horror injury toll opened up a few Fantasy opportunities last year while the returns of a few big guns this year will have significant Fantasy implications.

Big Guns

Angus Crichton ($757k) was the big gun at the Roosters last year, standing up in an injury-hit pack while averaging 60 in Fantasy. Given Boyd Cordner's retirement, it is hard to see Crichton's importance to the Tricolours diminishing this year.

Luke Keary ($750k) is almost as expensive despite playing just three games last year; chalk that up to a whopping seven try-assists in those three games skewing his 2021 average.

Rule changes: Kick metres scoring change

Bargain Hunter

James Tedesco ($695k) had a bit of an up-and-down year Fantasy-wise, which can probably be partly attributed to the club's injury toll denting his attacking chances. He's still the club's third-priciest player but hasn't started a season this cheap in a while.

Billy Smith ($300k) is probably in a two-way race with Paul Momirovski ($466k) for one centre spot and represents terrific value if he starts the season after a horror run with injuries.

Cheapies

Nobody who is likely to command decent minutes early in the season unfortunately.

Be Wary

Joseph Suaalii ($350k) was a popular buy when he came into first grade but despite boundless talent has not so far looked like being a Fantasy-type back who gets busy and busts plenty of tackles. At his current price there are better options elsewhere.

Victor Radley ($563k) is often a popular pick-up but is another who doesn't really churn through those base stats enough to be a Fantasy gun.

Rule changes: Six-again and in-goal escapes
