All it takes is one injury in the Souths pack for his stocks to potentially rise again, and if hes in your squad as a NPR i don't think holding him is such a bad idea. The option is always there to downgrade him later closer to the byes when there is a clearer picture, instead of rushing a trade now for an unknown which could end up been a dud. I think people often focus too much on the $ instead of the 'opportunity value' a member of your squad might have.

    tl;dr, if your not desperate for cash right now, trade Yates to Crichton instead of Musgrove. Its only a 40k difference anyway.

    Good advice mate, but I'll need to do a second trade to get the funds to get rid of Yates. Frawley is a no brainer if starting but not sold on Hampton, but looking at Elgey to Hampton anyway.

    Actually, what do people think of KNik?  Any potential value in him over the next 6-8 weeks?  Could also play round 12.  Going Elgey to KNik gives me just enough to go Yates to Crichton. 8 points in 31 minutes though isn't encouraging.

    Just saw his BE is 34, meh.

    I wouldn't be trading anyone out now who plays round 12. Musgrove stays. Yates to Chricton I like a lot.

    Also, someone mentioned Aaron Gray out until round 19 on Rabbitohs site, so Jennings and Burns probably stay in the team with Talakai missing for Hymel Hunt.

    Gutted I trade Moga out given he plays round 12, really should have been Suli and Kelly to go first. Don't make the same mistake with Musgrove.

    Also, the other trade of Ponga looks good, hearing Coote could be out another three weeks (no source, just rumour so maybe just ignore until you hear something concrete).

    Thanks mate, I do want to keep Musgrove but as I said I need extra funds to upgrade Yates to Crichton. Should I bite the bullet and cash Elgey out for Hampton (or Frawley obviously if he starts) to keep Musgrove?

    I think you should roll the dice and trade in Frawley anyway even if he plays on the bench..so long as you don't have to play him in the 17 if thats the case. I think he is too good to leave out of the starting lineup and its only a matter of time before he gets a shot. If the Bulldogs lose on Friday night with Frawley on the bench then Des will be under a huge amount of pressure. Looking at the big picture i think Frawley has better upside then Hampton, just my 2c.

    My interest in Knik is how he will affect Milford in terms of kick meters & general involvement. Milford is on my radar but i see him as quite a risky pick.

    I think with the return of Gurgess, and Turner moving to the front row, Musgrove will find more competition for minutes and his points may suffer.
    He'll still have high and low scores as things vary due to HIA, game situation, etc but overall scores will dip I think.

    So, souths have no origin forwards so he won't get a score bump come bye rounds

    You know I actually thought about doing this mate. It has to be one of those matter of time things with Frawley starting. Long term, Frawley should definitely have more upside than Hampton.

    Exactly what I was thinking of, there certainly is no opportunity for his minutes to increase over that origin period. I think Musgrove owners like myself have to weigh up if keeping that 290K on the bench just for the security of the extra player in those bye rounds is worth it.

    I've done Lamb>Milf but may grab Frawley if named starting and have a look at Milf without Bunt. Had planned on getting Milf for fixtures before Bunt got injured so not sure how he'll go.
    I think this is my 5th season and never owned Milf as usually avoid high risk high reward players

    I'm hoping his scores remain similar and his price hovers. It's a long season and you never know who might pop up. And anywho JBrom is only 60k away from Musgrove so hoping he gets a lil closer over the next couple of weeks, and we all now how a try can do wonders.

    Have got Crichton but is he in danger of losing 80 mins if Farah back injury clears up?

    Game is so much more of a sweat but also so much more fun with players like that. Can be on 28 in late minutes of second half then bust out a 25pt play

    I like Milf as a player in my final 17 or 18th man, especially at his current price and without BHunt. Late season he could be the difference between a 970 and 1000 pointer

    I don't think he'll play much more mins than he already is as of last week. Played 38 last week. He said in that interview during the week week that 40 to 50 mins is pretty much his role now (and he's probably being generous to himself there, ie wont admit that its closer to being 40 mins than 50..).

    No, Farah and Cook shared minutes.

    Crichton won't play 80 every week. The question is if he plays 80 more often than he doesn't. And of course what sort of score he puts up in the time he gets

    Why not? The successful teams run 80 minute edge forwards. Souths have lacked that until now.
