    Then minutes become the issue for Barnett

    Barnett's average with Buhrer (46 from 6 games) is better than his average without (38 from 5 games)
    I wouldn't necessarily think he'd maintain that, but certainly there is nothing to make me say that Buhrer will harm Barnett's scoring.

    Minutes pretty consistent too at around 56. Last game was the first time he's played 80 all season (which was probably due to Nathan Ross going down early more than anything else)

    Going to get Mansour and Turbo next week because their BE are 49 and 56 they could lose some cash.
    I went with Teddy his BE is 40 his price may rise. Hope this help with your decision.

    Yates has peaked 3 rounds too early dammit. So tempting to trade him out now, but I need that R18 player

    Thoughts on who I should loophole between C. Smith and S. Johnson.

    Also my end of season team at this stage.

    Trade this week is Hampton -> Smith.

    HOK: C. Smith (C. McInnes)
    FRF: A. Fifita, J. Graham (N. Brown, F. Tualau)
    2RF: S. Burgess, P. Gallen, J. de Belin (E. Whitehead, A. Crichton, NPR)
    HLF: S. Johnson, A. Reynolds (NPR, NPR)
    CTR: S. Mata'Utia, J. Hayne, (T. Fuimaona, C. Scott)
    WFB: C. Munster, T. Lolohea, R. Tuivasa-Scheck (B. French, NPR)

    I have 7 trades and $81k remaining. Not really sure whether I should try and upgrade Lolohea/RTS for Tedesco, or upgrade Hayne/Fuimaona for T. Trbojevic. I have French I can cash out later and Taulau to upgrade as well.

    Fuimaona -> NPR
    French -> NPR

    Would give me enough to make one of the following trades..

    J. Hayne -> T. Trbojevic
    F. Taulau -> J. Bromwich
    T. Lolohea -> J. Tedesco

    Then it would leave me with 4 trades for the rest of the season and some cash spare.
    (These trades would occur Round 18-19)

    Who would you make a priority?

    I would personally go for TTrbo over the other two, because I think your WFBs are currently stronger now than your CTRs. If you then want to get Teddy after that you can do so. Teddy might go up in value, but so will Lolohea in all likelihood. Bromwich feels like a personal preference trade? Would you rather have him than upgrade Whitehead?

    As mentioned, Merrin and Taupau are your best options.

    Lets say J. de Belin and T. Merrin both average 60 the rest of the year while M. Taupau averages 65 points. (This is roughly based on their last 5 game averages.)

    J. de Belin scores 540 points.
    T. Merrin scores 660 points.
    M. Taupau scores 715 points.

    So best case scenario you make an extra 175 points at the cost of $46k and a trade. I mean that is a decent amount of points, and worth a look if you have banked trades and cash. But definitely something I don't think I will undertake.

    Upgrading Whitehead would actually be a better option. Sadly I doubt I will have enough cash after the two downgrades to upgrade Whitehead and make one of the other pick ups of Trbojevic or Tedesco with my cash flow at the moment.

    Bromwich still not a keeper yet mate, bloke played 76 minutes for that 61. I've had him for a month and will be hoping for 40's going forward.

    His minutes were definitely inflated on the weekend but he did play very well. He looked back in form and since I traded him in last week I was very happy with his score/performance. Obviously he won't get 76 minutes every week but it was good to see him back in some good form

    Not a bad return and even back in his usual 55-60 minute role his points would of been around the 50 mark, few extra missed tackles on TLolo. If he continues that form he will be back to where he was last year....I'm hoping

    Yeah, he's definitely trying and has found his offload again. I just don't see him going more than 40/45 under normal conditions.

    Last week was Golden Point and Finucane was probably the one set to play close to 80 before his HIA.

    Personal opinion Frizell comes in. JDB a massive blow and Mary due to for another DUI if they lose to the Noughts.

    I started the year with Barnett.
    His scores were less than great.
    Too many missed tackles and errors.
    He rushes up out of the line to make the tackle and often misses.
    He is definitely capable of big scores, but very inconsistent.

    I hope you are right (cause I have him), but if you use his season average minutes (excluding his first and last games) of 52.5 and multiply that by his PPM from his most recent game (0.8 ) that works out at only 42 points.
