Another weekend of upsets made it a difficult one for NRL Fantasy, not to mention injuries and late withdrawals which would have left many teams decimated and coaches frustrated.
The Sharks were without two of their highest Fantasy point-scorers in Paul Gallen and Andrew Fifita and not only were they missed by those coaches who have them as a part of their squad, they were certainly missed by Shane Flanagan as the Cronulla side went down to a spirited Panthers outfit.
Trying to make a little bit of sense of the NRL Fantasy League is the Sharks ‘coaching expert’ Megan Potts, with edition two of her weekly updates.
Read about who Megan thinks are the must-have players, the players to trade and the highest points-getters from the weekend of matches just decided.

There were some late withdrawals and a number of injuries early in the games this week causing a few headaches for Fantasy teams.
After last weeks performance Jake Granville would have made an appearance in a few teams only to disappoint coaches by being knocked out in the early minutes, and with the new rule not being able to return it left coaches with -3pts to deal with. Ouch!
Highest scoring player of the round was Daly Cherry-Evans on 83, the Manly half picking up his game from previous weeks. Cowboy five eighth Michael Morgan also put in a solid performance with 73 points
The biggest question everyone is asking is whether or not to trade Paul Gallen, with his injury ruling him out indefinitely, including the possibility of him missing origin. He is one of the most expensive Fantasy players and if you decided to trade him it could free up some cash to bulk up your team.
Sharks top performers this week were Wade Graham 67pts, Mick Ennis 61pts and Ricky Leutele on 57pts, a good effort from those boys despite the fact they couldn't come away with the win.
We have week off and an extra week to consider our next move due to the rep games this weekend, so let's hope for an injury free weekend and remember to use your trades wisely.
