    i have brailey so wanting to horde cash. got 227k atm

    but also want hess in.

    could go siro > hess (gets rid of that fuck head, leaves me with 142k) or ET to Hess (banks another 35k for the brailey trade and leaves me at 262k)

    could ignore hess completely which seems sensible but i want him badddd

    waffling here but are any brailey owners still wanting to get whitehead/JBROM in when they bottom out or just ignoring them with brailey being the bigger priority?

    For now I've decided I'll actually worry about Brailey later. Still got some cash to make and to get the cash to fund an upgrade sooner I'll have to sacrifice a few points along the way e.g by going from Siro to P Kaufusi instead of Siro to Whitehead.
    Either way I'll be waiting for cows to peak so I don't short-change myself so might as well strengthen a position now while I wait.

    Personally I think those who started with Hess were extremely lucky re injury front with the Cowboys. He should go great this week, however if he bumps back to the bench it could be problematic. However if you really want him, then go ahead and grab him. I wouldn't trade out E. Taylor for him so trading out C. Sironen is the better option in my opinion. Now in regards to Brailey, I own him and I want Whitehead/Bromwich/Thompson. For mine I think Brailey will be making cash for at least 3-4 more weeks as Segeyaro adjusts. From memory it took him awhile at the Panthers to get that 80 minute role down so Brailey should be making enough cash in the mean time while your FRF/2RF cows peak, and those guys drop in price. Meanwhile your cashcow CTRs/WFBs should peak around the time Brailey is to be traded out.

    At least that is an ideal scenario in my head.

    i think im just chasing the hess points. ill be much better leaving siro a week and bringing whitehead in next week.

    yeah good plan re brailey. lets hope seggy doesnt come in and play the bulk of the mins quickly

    Might throw my team up and see if a few can tinker, not willing to make trades this week unless something good comes along.

    HOK: Smith, Brailey
    FRF: Vaughan, Wallace, Yates (Papalii)
    2RF: De Belin, E. Taylor, McGuire, F. Kaufusi (Sironen, Stone)
    HLF: Johnson, Lamb, Jacks( Elgey)
    CTR: Trbojevic, Talakai (Kelly, Suli)
    WFB: Tedesco, RTS, Ponga (Jennings, Abbey)

    Bank: 50k
    Trades: 30
    Rank: 77

    Notes:
    Was lucky starting with Ponga, wanted him for the bye period for some reason but get him heaps earlier now.
    Would love to turn Taylor and Sironen into gun and cow, but can't see any viable options.
    Would like to get a pick-and-stick second CTR and work on upgrading Ponga to Gutherson in the long run

    Great work CM

    nothing standing out mate, nice team plenty of depth, let Siro and Brailey peak and start downgrading for cash to get Brailey upgrade in, Talakai should make some coin whilst Hunt sits

    So my Keary risk appears to have flopped almost as hard as JDB in the 79th minute. Before he winds up going backwards faster than Moses I think i might swallow my pride and upgrade him. Currently tossing up between ARey and Bhunt for some POD'y goodness but having trouble picking which. 

    BHunt seems like he might be a bit cheaper than usual from that shit rd 1 score, but then he got lucky Rd 2 so in a way it cancels itself out. ARey would have good byes if i can rely on him playing all year.  Then again, maybe i should just be looking at SJ or Norman instead like everyone else... :S I hate these kind of decisions.

    Please say you traded in Keary after that R1 monster he produced  Rolling Laugh
    You are better than that

    Norman, best byes...massive ceiling, high floor
    hammy injury only worry, but if that concerns you, you can't even consider Arey based on injury history

    Read my bloody post in the top trades thread you flogger, i had good reasoning!
    http://www.nrlfantasyfanatics.com/t455-booze-s-top-10-traded-player-archives

    But yeah, Norman i had for most of last year and didn't regret it, i guess my only concern is he costs even more than those i've mentioned, has a much much higher ownership and I'm dirty i didn't with him.

    Might end up costing me bad, but i'm deciding to ignore the 2nd hooker dilemma until it becomes clearer what Flanagan plans to do with Seggy, so this week Suli->Slater, Sironen -> Mannering, next week Blaw -> FRF cheapie, whichever of Kelly/Moga that sucks this week through SMat -> Whitehead, by then it should be somewhat clearer and cows will be ready for the harvest..

    Sorry lad but Keary is where is he for a reason, plenty of stats to back up his fantasy fortunes, at least Moses has a positive sample where (minus Farah) and he became lead playmaker he averaged 45+ for a good stretch

    Keary has always been a mid ranger

    Get Norman lad!

    I only expected somewhat mid range scores from Keary and then was going to sell him off anyway, just didn't want the shite score he put out last week because it kills off any chance of a quick leapfrog. The part that really hurts is that during that week i let go of JWH and also brought in Talakai..... jocolor gun
