    I've brought in Gallen and Graham for CHN and McGuire.
    Do I use my third on Brown if he's fit to play?
    Smith to Macca?
    Bring in Gordon/Semi for Suli?

    Decisions, decisions...

    Is Feeney a decent cashout for Hampton?

    Been thinking about this one myself and I guess it comes down to, how many points is that trade worth?

    I assume you'll be making that trade to get Semi's points for rounds 12, 13, 15 and 18. How many total points would you be happy with? Suli plays two of those rounds so you're really only getting two rounds of extra points

    If he scored 2x 30, is that enough for the trade? 60 points for a trade?

    Well I'm hoping Semi has played himself into some form and can bust out a string of big scores. Another option I'm looking at which I forgot to post is Gordon. He has been pretty consistent this year

    What am I better to do.

    Swap Slater for Walker. Gain an extra scorer in Round 15 but leave myself a little skinny in 13 and 16 plus having to spend cash to get him.

    Or

    Buy Flash Gordon. Pocket some extra cash, get a scorer in 13 and 16 while aiming for upgrades like Brailey to McInnes and Whitehead to Vaughan/Lolo.

    Does the benefit of having an extra 18k for trades outweigh spending 37k to get a player who will play one more bye round???

    You know what maybe I should save the trade. Slater's been overlooked for Origin I according to the news reports. His up and down scores can annoy me though

    I don't see how Slater how missed out, but I guess we'll find out in half an hour.

    I have Smith, Fifita and Slater, I don't don't really think I can afford or want to trade any of them out. I think Slater will be brilliant for the run home.

    Has his average improved post-origin in previous years or are you just basing this on gut feel?

    Just the way he's played so far this year. Gut feel basically mate. Wouldn't have a clue about his previous averages.

    I wouldn't expect Slater to improve massively for the run home.

    Even at his peak he's never been more than a mid 40s fantasy scorer.

    If he misses origin 2 and 3, he becomes a pretty handy bye player, and probably worth holding until round 19.

    Brailey
    Graham
    G-Train, Crichton, Mannering, Whitehead, Surgess
    SJ, A Rey, Frawley
    Cotric, Manu, Fuimaono
    Guth, RTS, Flash, CNK

    One of the stronger ones I've seen, hopefully you get up to 17.
