A look back on all the Fantasy studs and duds from the weekend's Super 15 action.

Brumbies 39 Rebels 17
The star: Colby Fainga'a (26 points) - he's been getting more minutes of late as the Brumbies struggle with injuries and he stepped up this week with his biggest offensive game of the season.
The dud: Nic White (4 points) - White frustrated many a fantasy owner after suffering a shoulder injury early in this one. He's out for four weeks so keep this in mind when you set your upcoming rosters.
Value pick: Jordy Reid (20 points) - Reid's previous season high fantasy score was 8 points, so this came out of nowhere. He's another injury replacement so well done if you picked this result but don't count on the good times rolling.

Force 13 Waratahs 28
The star: Bernard Foley (22 points) - a rare five eighth starring performance. Foley had a great all-round fantasy day with his highest tackle count of the season, plenty of metres gained and goal kick to boot. That's what happens when you play the Force.
The dud: Matt Hodgson (-1 points) - he's had some decent performances this year and there would have been some owners who picked him up this week hoping for some cheap magic while the Kiwis and Africans had byes, but he disappointed in a big way.
Value pick: Cam Crawford (15 points) - that's now seven tries in his past six games and at $7,730,000 he's a relatively cheap option in the back position.

He's a great spot starter depending on the match up, keep him on your radar.
