    Semi to ARey via Munster seem like a good trade? Or spend more and get Cleary instead?

    Cleary worth the extra 50k in my book mate. Reynolds too injury prone and Pamfus should have more wins in them.

    I'll have 9 players for Round 18. Maybe 10-11 if players like Burns get a run.
    Will have around 16 for Round 19. Shit well better hope nobody in my league has been saving for a rainy day in those rounds.

    Will have 13 or 14 for rd 18
    Full 17 or more for rd 19

    Im trying to maximise players for rd 18 but the only way i can think of now is if cheapies come up that week that'll be there only for a week.

    Any thoughts on who they could be? Probably a dogs roosters or storm forward..?

    Thinking those 30 or 40 pts could be really handy if the trend here of most having rd 19 covered but struggling in 18 holds true

    Bloody no DPP in my 2RF grrrr. If Vaughan is out for some time ill have to trade him to someone.
    None of the FRFs from the Eagles, Knights, Panthers are really appealing except for Taupau. But would need to make a decent downgrade to get him in. Perhaps thats where ET comes in unfortuantely to fund some uogrades in the future aswell.

    Headaches aplenty

    That moment when others are posting their overall ranking graph chart that looks like a heart rate monitor has flat lined when yours looks like an outline of the Sydney Opera House. FML.

    So is it crazy to have four players from one club in your starting 17? Are there any guidelines for stacking your team with one club's players?

    Looking at grabbing Mansour, giving me Merrin, Cleary, Edwards and Mansour in my team.

    Mansour can score 100 without a try so no need to worry. Panfers have finished their byes so no problem there.

    Go for it

    In my 25 man squad I have 5 Rabbitohs (Surgess, Crichton, Fui, Gurgess, Burns). Contemplating trading RTS to Mansour so I would also have 4 Panthers in Merrin, Cleary, Edwards and Mansour. Cleary may not even get a run in my squad after round 19 unless injury strikes.

    Asking for some advice at where you would improve for the final team.

    Smith, McIness
    Graham, Wallace
    JDB, Gallen, Tolo, Crichton, Surgess
    Pearce, DCE, Walker
    Croker, Cotric, Hayne
    RTS, Mansour, Teddy

    I've been playing around with a few combos. Doesn't need to be this week. I've got 11 trades and pretty happy with how the team is shaping up.

    I was thinking Cotric to NPR and Hayne into centres. Which lets me upgrade any player I want to any player I want. Was looking at..

    Graham to Fifita
    RTS to Rapana
    Walker to SJ
    Walker to Munster
    Or even Cotric to NPR and then Graham and Wallace to Taupau and Fifita

    Is there someone or something I'm not looking at?

    At the start of the year it's crazy. After their byes are finished as long as they are independently good scorers I wouldn't worry

    I'm thinking of get Moylan this week to add to Cleary, Mansour, and Edwards. Risky but ya never know what's gonna happen. They have a great run in so could be in for some good points on average.

    There isn't much point holding off on Semi to Cleary is there? Yes they both play 18 but I don't want the difference between them to grow too much . Or should I just play it safe and go Semi to Teddy?

    Probably not fantasy relevant, but sam Williams linked back to raiders on a two year deal. Surely he not coming back to be playing Mounties, Sezer on the outer?

    Trade Lamb to Cleary or keep Lamb for his round 18 & 19 points (both rounds probably 60-70 points) & try to get Cleary another way.

    You know how we were debating a while ago whether or not Hindmarsh was always high on the mary jane on matty johns show. Well it confirmed it last night that he is if you watched it.

    I agree with CWalker, RTS, Graham (in that order) as players just missing the cut of a final 17 team. I wouldn't be too unhappy to keep them but since you have 11 trades remaining you can afford to do some luxury upgrades.
    Pretty obvious which are the top price keepers to upgrade to are but I'll list the cheapish keepers so it won't hurt the bank as much to do the upgrade

    FRF: RJames $412k , possibly woods $428k

    Half: Cleary $454k, Hunt $423k (Bennet dropping him for the one game has fired him up. He'll definitely partner Milf for 80mins for the run home)

    WFB: Edwards $357k (sure sucks to miss out on so many price rises but this guy is a gun), Slater $416k, Dugan $427k (only if you feel like gambling that he doesn't get injured), Nofo $331k (probably wait til after origin so he has more space to work with Teddy back. I'm betting on him to get back to his TB'ing best very soon)
