    Apparently Cowboys might keep Hampton at hooker, Kyle Laybutt into starting side to cover JT.

    He isn't in the system yet, so if he doesn't get added before this week and scores good, will be another bit of free cash the week after.

    I think the forum is saying no mate. Not sure if anything changes with BHunt out, but Milf just deadset won't give Moga the ball.

    Thinking this weeks trades will be.

    Yates > Whitehead

    Wallace > Tolman

    Gonna need some ammo like this if I am any chance of another victory against a top 10 player in fantasy overall (Imperium Sine Fine)


    Would leave me with

    Smith / Pritchard

    Vaughan / Tolman / N.Brown / Hoare

    Burgess / DeBelin / Whitehead / Harawira-Naera / Sironen / May

    Norman / Frawley / Lamb / Jacks

    Sata'uita / Walker / Talakai / Kelly

    Holmes / Tuivasa-Scheck / Hayne / Cotric / Suli

    The Warriors have played 5 of 6 games in NZ. Wait until they start having to play in Aus and watch their scores drop considerably. Love Foran as a player but skeptical on what the Warriors can produce every second week outside of NZ

    Thinking about doing two downgrades this week to fund two upgrades the following week...

    Barnett -> Crichton
    Elgey -> Hampton
    this week
    = 282k in the bank

    then
    Lamb -> SJ
    KBrom -> Podene
    next week


    Current team before any trades:
    Smith (McCullough)
    McGuire Kaufusi Yates Hoare
    Surgess Merrin Barnett (Whitehead) (KBrom) (CHN)
    Lamb Jacks Elgey Field
    SMat Idris Kelly Talakai
    RTS Slater Cotric Abbey Suli

    Crazy? or crazy like a fox?

    All the elite half options have huge KM stats, goalkicking, and or are the main attacking option, not all but usually a combo of 2 of those traits. Foran has none of these to sustain an elite average i.e when he doesn't get great attacking stats he will score low

    I'd look for Foran to average between 40-45 over the season

    i.e Milford

    I can see what you are trying to do and this is not to talk you out of it-but Crichton's minutes aren't settled and it is Madge, bloke could end up in Ressies next week.
