    I don't think he is worth it at current price

    No will have to look but 73 average last 3 albeit 37 base stats. He's Faufusi+52k right now so that feels like a bargain

    Have decided to go with Norman to Munster and Kaufusi to Graham.

    16 trades and 244k left

    Smith McInnes
    McGuire Graham Brown Ese ese
    JDB Surgess Crichton CHN Elliot Fuimaono
    SJ Munster Niko Hampton
    BJ Aubusson Kelly Idris
    RTS Slater Hayne Suli Phythian

    Next week I will probably go Suli to Walker and either McGuire or CHN to a cheap DPP and Gallen or James. Does anybody have any other suggestions?

    If all start & play where named I would reserve K-Nik & Guth.

    To me buying Taupau now is like getting Tedesco when he was well over $500k or Taumalolo/Vaughan paying a huge premium for someone who can't sustain that 3/5 round average...no way he can sustain those wild TB and offload numbers, he will finish around the 50 avg mark and his byes are shit. If you want him for final 17 for his explosive scoring potential I'd personally wait until R16


    that was it mate, over alst 2 seasons his average has been pretty much the exact same, some huge scores with some pretty mediocre ones, he doesn't have the tackle counts to post consistent scores when he doesnt bust 10 tackls a game and get off 6 offloads

    So the TOTW is Kaufusi -> Graham, but I already have Graham. I'm thinking Elliot, then upgrading either Niko or Hayne to CWalker.

    Good to go?

    Which 2 to play

    JWal and Bodene for mine. Both have secure roles in the team. CHN could easily end up back on the bench with 30 odd minutes

    m

    CHN probably scores more then Bodene if he gets 80mins or close to it. But I agree that going with Bodene gives you the security of gametime

    A couple of random observations on some of the main trade topics:

    Faufusi - he dropped a lot of balls last week in the time he was on, but he also saw a shedload of attacking plays including a few near the try line. If he's minutes are to be reduced, then perhaps he'll get a lot of focus in the time he is on the field.

    Gutherson - he's pretty much bottomed out, but he's only got until Norman gets back in the half role. He unlikely to oust French from the FB, so if you're getting him in now, will he do the job for you between now and R15?

    KNik - Really hoping Walters goes for Milford for Thurston's position as you would think it assures KNik of R12 starting alongside Hunt if he comes back.

    What are the thoughts on Radradra now that Norman is gone? Less attacking opportunities for less points? More focus on early ball to strike weapons with Norman gone?

    I understand and appreciate your points. I'm a safety first base stat heavy kind of player. Was going to stick on 1 trade this week with 21 left and 100k itb to do Faufusi and Slater to Calker and Graham next week...

    But I'm 311th with reasonable bye cover, last 7 of 8 trades all bye focused, and I'm seriously tempted to take the risk for several reasons.

    A) he's a pod >4% ownership
    B) non-bye friendly means many will avoid and if keeps it up he'll be out of reach or just too awkward to get in
    C) I've been hamstrung in the past by over obsessing about coverage in the past and sometimes you miss a gem keeper
    D) I play fantasy FPL and high money players like Aguero are considered $$$ insurance in that if it goes wrong you can easily transition to other players

    What you reckon? In probably gonna gamble

    Who should I trade Kaufusi out for from the FRF/2RF. Assuming I have S. Burgess, J. de Belin, A. Crichton, E. Whitehead, A. Fifita, J. Graham and N. Brown. I am thinking Gallen is the best option but would rather not bring him in if he plays Origin.
