    Just realised that JDB>Tofu was a bad trade with number I had left. Slight drunken impulse. I'm probably going to have to keep the likes of Nate Brown Guth. Is it ok to leave less trades for injuries if a lot of DPP flexibility i.e. 2 injury trades

    Yet he keeps producing and looking more and more dangerous every week.  I'm keeping him for 18 at least then reassessing.

    I agree with that, but my primary focus is H2H so not worried about round 18, but can definitely see why you would keep for this week and next. Especially with a BE of 32.

    Fair enough then mate.  Probably would punt him first then over Merrin. Felise needs those strong attacking stats for his points also whereas Merrin gets 40 odd in base stats.

    Fantasy coach is giving me a projected score of 917 this week! Hopefully I can improve upon that.
    I hope Fuimaono plays 80 in the second row again! I've got him in my centres and would love another 50+ score!

    If he keeps that spot it will be gold. He'd be a set and forget centre.

    SJ, Munster (Lamb, Field)

    I can see Taupau getting t/b's galore against the Warriors.

    Didn't he only get that spot because Surgess was a late pull out?

    fingers crossed! If the bunnies keep winning and he plays well he should be able to keep his spot.
    Should I bench Hayne or Leilua? They both worry me a little..

    No, he was named there to start on TLT. Burgess named at 13

    Yes Fuimaono was named to start in the 2fr with Surgess at lock but at full strength he may not play 80 minutes. Because Surgess was out Turner started at lock which allowed Fui to play 80 mins. With Turner on the bench then Fui may not play 80 mins.

    Yeah, that's what I was getting at.

    Turner has been playing middle for most of the year. Crichton took his spot and he went into the frontrow, then he went back to edge when Sutton moved to 5/8 but that didnt last long as Fui took his spot.

    NRL PHYSIO @nrlphysio

    I agree. I watched a replay of the manly game without seeing the scoring and was expecting to see a 70+ score next to his name

    Either way, Fui still better centre option that Moga and Leilua who I've had for the last 6 or 7 rounds Sad

    Option B.
    Merrin is a keeper if his minutes come back. No reason to trade him.

    Felise Navidad has done his dash and made his cash. Upgrade him to an out-and-out gun.

    You are a harsh man Filthy, Felise pumped out a 61 last week (11 more than Kapow), rose $14k, has a BE of 32, a 3 round average of 58 and a 5 round average of 51. Your team must be stacked.

    I'm gutted I sold him, I bailed early on a few cows that had a little hiccup and then came good again (Felise, Cotric, Yates, Moga, Suli to an extent) - whilst the troops I traded them to became duds. Cost me cash and trades but the two I really regret are Felise and Cotric.
