Draftstars Salary Cap: $100,000


Cameron Smith ($13,800) Queensland

Smith will be playing in his 38th State of Origin match and is considered to be one of the best players of all time. He has dominated this level since entering it and will continue to pick up a lot of base statistics whilst he averages 20-points more than Robbie Farah.



James Maloney ($9,300) New South Wales

Maloney has moved into the halfback position and will get the ball in his hands more often. He will now be the fulltime goal kicker for the side and is known for crossing the white stripe like he did in game 2.


Front Row Forward

Aaron Woods ($10,350) New South Wales

Woods is seen as the captain of the future for the Blues and will get a lot of minutes on Wednesday night. He has a high work rate and is capable of a offload and is a good option at this position and has a relatively cheap price tag.

Sam Thaiday ($8,000) Queensland

Thaiday plays a large portion of the match for Queensland than with the Broncos and has averaged 70-minutes in the opening two games. If he sees similar minutes again then he is a bargain at this price and a great option for a front row forward.


Second Row Forward

Paul Gallen ($12,800) New South Wales

Gallen will be playing in his final match for New South Wales and the captain will want to go out with style. He has played 80-minutes in the front row before and whilst he won’t be doing that he will want to stay on the field for as long as possible. The workhorse will no doubt rack up the base points and be a huge scorer for Draftstars.

Josh Jackson ($10,300) New South Wales

The Bulldogs back rower is a lock on the right edge and has played the full 80-minutes in both games this season. He will make a lot of tackles in defence, which will rack up the points for our team.



James Tedesco ($11,300) New South Wales

The Blues debutant was chosen over the incumbent Matt Moylan. Tedesco is the form fullback of the competition and would have been chosen for Game 1 if it wasn’t for injury. Tedesco is an incredibly skilful and quick player who will add a lot to the Blues attack.

Josh Mansour ($11,300) New South Wales

Mansour has had a great start to his Origin career as his high work rate has helped the Blues get on the front foot and work their way out of their danger area. He constantly comes in for a hit up and we are backing him to get on the scoreboard in his third game.



Greg Inglis ($9,350) Queensland

He has been relatively quiet in the first two games and hasn’t added to his record of the most amount of tries in the Origin arena. He is up against Josh Dugan this weekend who isn’t accustomed to the centre position and he will be looking to make an impact in this one.

Justin O'Neill ($6,550) Queensland

O'Neill has had a relatively quite first series in Origin as a lot of the spot light has been on his wing partner Dane Gagai. We are predicting O'Neill to get more involved in this one and either cross for a couple of meat pies or hand them off to Gagii for vital assist points. Also, as a centre O'Neill will earn more base points.


Note: Article was updated on the morning of the 13th of July after Matt Moylan was moved into the starting line-up and Jack Bird onto the bench.


Draftstars has dozens of different NRL DFS tournaments available over the weekend with individual guarantees for each match including smaller and free DFS contests.
