Despite appearing in only ten games last season, David Pocock sat second in the turnover table; a mighty return from a mighty player.

For more information on what the numbers on the player cards mean, take a look at this.

Add to that a points per game ratio of 31.24, some way ahead of Kwagga Smith who bested him in the turnover stakes, and a fully fit and firing Pocock could be the replacement for Amanaki Mafi that everyone has been looking for.

While his metres per game, at 17.62, is perhaps not amongst the highest for the eighth-man berth, a tackle success of 97% and 10.92 tackles per game adds weight to what will undoubtedly be a consistently high return every week throughout the season.

Three try assists and two tries also go a long way to boosting his attacking stats, and help push him to the forefront of the fantasy coach's selection at number eight.
