    Just heard on 7 News that Adam Reynolds will be the likely Blues 7 and they'll go without Pearce. Would I be crazy for wanting to get Mitchell Pearce into my team? Dominant kicker, scored a 50 in the last game with little attacking stats and he's got good bye coverage.

    Not bringing in Mannering this week. Was going to but he doesn't play next week and he may have smaller minutes because of coming back from injury. I'll just wait and bring in ET for Blaw next week

    How the hell does Tedesco and Mullen have the same amount of Dally M points?

    I won't be bringing in Semi. I know he's probably headed for a 4 try haul against the Knights but way too boom or bust for my liking. Also he doesn't play the round after 2 of the byes so if you've got thin depth in the WFB/CTR's like me you might not be able to field 17 players in those rounds if you've got lots of Eels and/or Dragons/Roosters backs.

    I've literally changed my trades about 100 times so far. Thinking:

    Barba -> Aitken
    Aubbs -> Mooper

    Gives me

    Smith Parcell
    Graham JBrom Blaw Herman
    Surgess Jturbo whitehead Cartwright Mooper Fensom
    Hunt Norman Hastings Lamb
    Holland Claw auva'a Benry
    Munster Aitken Mitchell Guth Feeney
    17 trades left 172k

    4 red dots but hopefully Fensom and Herman play round 12. Next week, assuming Asiata (or someone better) gets named he cashes out Blaw via Surgess. Should leave a chunk of cash to bring in Friend or Harris or hopefully both over the next few weeks. Fensom might become Mannering.

    Would someone pick apart my plan please?

    Trading out Barba? Surely he is a WFB keeper?

    Depends who you have back there. He relies massively on attacking points as his involvement is minimal.
    I am a massive sharks fan and I have traded him this week for the above reason, plus his byes.

    If it was a choice between him and Mitchell, I would go Mitchell as he has a habit of doing the old 'Inglis' crab and his fend racks up points.
    Bit of a flip of the coin really and really depends on you approach to things. Same reason people choose a Milford over BHunt for example

    Munster is locked in the back for me,Aitken is there now for a while until Tedesco gets back so unfortunately Barba misses out.

    Pearce is always in the no go zone fantasy wise. Big call mate.

    Someone tell me it is ok to trade out Latrell !

    Wouldn't be trading out Latrell unless I had Munster, Dugan and a fit Tedesco back there, and even then I'd be keeping him for the byes.

    Verbatim my reason for the trade especially the last sentence. Aitken either goes for Ted eventually or gets moved to centres or stays if something happens to Ted. Or if the latter happens Barba could even come back in after the byes as I agree he could certainly be a keeper.

    Have you found a loophole that gives you unlimited trades?
    Please share.

    Hmm, more bye planning and Rd 15 really looks like the tricky one for my team.

    Whenever I look at players who I could accept as keepers that will shore up my team over the byes, they fit in Rd 12 & Rd 18.... bugger. I guess it means I should look at Roosters players but they all kinda seem only just below what I envision in my final 17...
