    Thanks bro I've put him on the bench with the R for an easy swap to someone else if need be

    Probably not, but I am trying it on for shits and giggles.

    Out of the eliminator and too far away from first to win anything.

    Likewise. Ranked around the same as @SI so I don't see it as risky as it would be if I was in contention.

    If Farah keeps playing 80 I don't see why he can't average 50 from here on in like SI said.

    My eliminator probably gets decided tonight.
    Out of 9 unique platers they have no one playing and I have 4. RTS, SJ, Fifi and Munster. Let's go the big 4.

    I pulled the trigger. Has left me with a decent bank again as I only had around 80k before the trade. My Eliminator opponent looks to have done the same move.

    Not sure how I managed to win eliminator this week.
    860 means a win by 18 points and probably means a tough match up next round.

    Does your round 16 or 17 rank count for seeding the next round of eliminator (in round 18)? Hoping they skip round 17 altogether...

    Who is still in Eliminator? And how many players are people likely to have this weekend?

    I managed to scrape through into the final 256 (I think).

    Not sure what round rankings come from, you'd hope its round 16 though as in theory, round 13 and 17 shouldn't come into the equation at all for the Eliminator.

    Currently I've got 7 (I think) for this round, ah! I intend adding 3 more via trades this week. 1 will likely be Lewis as a half cash out for Cogger. Then potentially Aitken and James although I haven't seen if the Origin teams have been named yet?

    I’m still alive too. Had a great round (1,021 points) which pushed me up to 40th overall.

    Now have to decide whether to trade hard this week as I think this will be a good chance to climb the ranks. Or save my trades and target the eliminator.

    Oh, and currently six players for this weekend (CS9, SJ, Martin, Brimson, Aitken, and Mann).

    I only got 941 but managed to win my Eliminator matchup and ranked 60th overall. Late season charge to the Top 8 from 16th in L1 continues lol

    Round 16. Same as round 13 was skipped.
    Have 9 this weekend. Was 10 until Tohu went down.

    Bit annoyed with myself for not pushing harder during the bye round. Dropped 31 places to 71st. Wanted to give myself maximum chance for the eliminator so still have 10 trades left...

    I had 11 so used all 4 last round. 7 left, probably no trades this week. Depends on who I draw in the Eliminator

    Eliminator's are up Dizzle. As opposed to the last 10 years-this year they are available when Lockout is lifted. Just have to remember to flick the Eliminator page over to Rd 18 as it will always default to the previous Round.

    I also saved Trades to focus on Eliminator. Lost 60 places as a result so 250th roughly Embarassed . 8 trades and 500k left and a very strong opponent. I don't think I've ever been in the last 256 before but figure it's all similar teams now so strategy and research can be trumped by some bad luck.
