    My plan is to have 14 for R12 and 17 for 13.
    Don't get too hung up on numbers though, aim for about 600 score on big bye rounds and you will climb ranks

    I'm getting a bad feeling though, something just screams 2016 Alvaro, huge ppm given the minutes but that's the question, will he get the minute?

    Ahh, you're not wrong robloomes, some big decisions to made this week.

    Can you and robloomes communicate in another language as well? Every time I see both your avatars I have to check the names, haha.

    I aim for 17 all rounds, impossible but it's for realsies my goal. I burn the trades like you a spliff, and go sideways and backwards and fuckwards. It's my thing, I live for the bye rounds.

    Anyone have any inside info on Mannering's supposed neck issue?

    With a 75 and 61 in his last two games, he seems to be over it. Can anyone see any risks here?

    Anyone think Hayne may play center? Titans are struggling there and Roberts has been pretty good at FB

    If you're after cash do you have K-Nik (hok/hlf) as he's cheaper than McIlwrick.

    I haven't smoked in ages actually. Nose beers is a different story. I think I'll aim for 11/12 and be happy with that.

    I feel like he will be more solid than Whitehead in the long run.

    Not sure if Bodene's injury run is unlucky or somewhat the norm, but from what I can gather, he's never completed a full season.

    2013 - 15 games for the Tigers
    2014 - 21 games, 41.5 average
    2015 - 21 games, 50.3 at the Warriors
    2016 - 18 games, 54.5

    I'm tossing up whether to bring him in next week or so, but if his trend of missing games continues, I'd probably be better off looking elsewhere.

    Gee it sounded like all doom and gloom for a bit. He himself was saying it was something that would have to "be managed" a month ago. Fingers crossed he is over it.

    I will say that he still doesn't quite seem himself so scary to think what he could be scoring.

    Hoping to have 12/13 decent scorers in Round 12, 17 for Round 13.

    My bye planning ends there.

    Just as a side note. I think SJ will continue to drop a bit, as Foran seems to be starting to take a lot of last set kicks off of him now. As long as he continues to break the line he will still pump out good scores though. Just don't expect regular 60+ scores to keep coming in.
