    My advice on any "is it too l;ate" question.

    Ignore the starting price of the player.

    Look at their current price, and their expected future scoring - if you think they have money to make or good scores to give then jump on them.


    No point ignoring $100k in price rises because you missed the first $30k (Not saying this applies to Whitehead, its just a general comment)

    keep Garvey but taken the R off him?

    DCE to Walker is a bold move mate. I'd be wary your halves dont just level off to mid rangers as from memory you weren't running with a 2nd gun were you? Plus having Garvey means you will be needing cash shortly to upgrade and your Welch upgrade should use your DCE downgrade cash correct. Don't want to get yourself into a situation in a few rounds where you need upgrades but don't have enough cash

    Just watching the 9 Sports report. Good ol Joey Johns is reporting J Turbo just got a little bump to the knee and should be right to play next week.

    Further to this, too late is only relevant to cashcows. Assuming given Fensom was mentioned in the same thread you're looking for some raiders points coverage and keeper, then it's not relevant.

    Too late for example would be dangerous consideration with Mbye right now. Just not price relevant

    And do you think lichaas return will impact mbye? Trying to decide between mbye and milford.

    Fensom vs Whitehead - 

    This is tough, with Whitehead returning the the 2RF he hasn't scored that well there yet. His big scores were starting at HLF. With the return of Austin it could have a positive or negative impact on his scoring making him a risk to bring in. (Though he wont lose cash) As for Fensom, he is a gun for sure but still has a BE of 60 so could definitely drop more in price. If you are looking to choose them as a long term option I would say Fensom is the far safer option and who I would lean towards. I have Whitehead, but if I didn't it would be too risky for me to bring him in at this stage. 

    MBye vs Milford - 

    Too close, I know Lichaa wont impact on MBye that much (Doesn't attack much nor take kick meters). Not sure who continues their hotstreak of form more, but either is a good pick up. I think Mbye has better byes slightly so definitely worth considering that. Overall I guess I would have to take Mbye just because Ben Hunt is more of a dominant half than Reynolds so that may work more in Mbye's favour in terms of his floor. But very very close both good options.

    Shit ass spelling but hey Massoud was on the money with Guerra to 5/8 so I'll take it as Garvey's out. Cheers for the great scores and making it only a 6k trade to Parcell.

    After 2 days in pure DT agony have decided to make 2 trades this week:

    - DCE to RTS
    - Aubs to Bowen

    $221k in the kitty, likely to bring in a gun for Carter next week

    Depends what you do with that extra cash. You probably already have a trade planned for next week if you're leaving that much cash spare
