    Meanwhile, think I'll be bringing in the game's highest averaging FRF/2RF and 3rd best FRF overall, who's only at 6% ownership.

    I was looking at turning him into Merrin or JDB or Tolo!

    Would you keep Brown and Kaufusi over him?  I'm not sure about holding Kaufusi just for round 15, he is pretty much a straight swap for Merrin!

    Already have JDB. Brown is a wait until Friday decision. I can go Bodene to Tolo if I do the Smith/Smith combo but figure it's entirely possible that Merrin and Tolo could average similar from this point onwards. I punted Kaufusi last week but if you kept him presumbably it was for the byes. Has something changed?

    Not really, was looking for an upgrade to as I said Merrin/JDB or Tolo but Bodene, Brown or Kaufusi would be the only ones I'd look at punting. Obvioulsy if Brown is out it could be an easy swap, but Merrin for only 10K more than Kaufusi is tempting.

    I picked up Merrin after origin last year, and he had a barnstoming end of the season. There is a risk he could get back into the origin team, but not looking likely I'd say.

    I'm hoping Brown is out this week for 2 reasons

    1) I can do Niko>Munster and loophole otherwise would need to get Cody for 17 starters
    2) Lots sell him then he comes back and kills it 15 and 18

    Hmm if JBrom plays and has a decent return game he plays 1 more game than Brown before 19 and would make cash while Brown loses

    Anyone thinking of punting Cwalker?

    Tossing up a CWalker > Mansour trade.

    Seems sideways, but I figured Cwlaker doesn't look keen at all. Mansour would be an early POD.

    Other option is Cash in Moga or Cotric to fund a Stone/Whitehead to Tolo. Apart from the fact Cotric and Moga both have high BEs thye both play this week. Seems like a trade better left for two weeks time?

    Official BEs are down across the board.

    They are probably a little more accurate than mine. I'm still assuming a lower Magic Number due to origin affect, although it shouldn't be as noticeable this week as last week.

    I have bought in MacLean and Finucane at this stage.

    My only concern is if JBrom does hit form then you not only miss out on him, but he could also take points from MacLean. In saying that, it's Bronwichs lack of offloads this year that is partly killing his score. That may not come back regardless of a form improvement, depending on coaching.

    They have Mitch Rein playing in NSW Cup. He'll most likely be called in

    Why do injured players BE go up 1 when they miss a week?

    Its not just injured players, its anyone who missed a game, and its not 2, it can be 1, sometimes zero. It all has to do with whatever the weeks magic number was worked out to be. So basically there is no reason, it just depends on the MN for that given week

    Had a break from the frustrations of Fantasy last weekend and went to the Races on Sunday and upon entering mid-race, there was a horse been called and I just couldn't get the name out of my head let alone remember any other horse in the race. I tried to get away from Fantasy and all I could hear was "Captain Mannering". FFS, just like my Fantasy team, it came closer to last then it did first.

    I would like to as I can see him going alright here on, but doesn't suit my bye plans. I will more than likely move him out after Round 15 teams announced.
