    How stupid is it trading ARey in?

    This is what happened to me. All preseason I had DCE in my halves partnering Cartwright, while all the while thinking about A.Reynolds. Read heaps of posts from many saying ( rightly so) that starting with him is too risky as he is injury prone. Kept thinking that this might be the year that Reynolds stays injury free so on the very last day swapped DCE out and put Reynolds in and we now know how that turned out.

    Maloney averaging -20 points a game from MT, errors and PC

    assuming a 35 point average is expected, where do his 55 positive fantasy points come from?

    I cant believe Im considering it.

    If he played early in the round would have been a great loophole option, but plays the last game and late in the round the next few weeks as well.

    If you have made the decision he is worth having in the team, I think you should play him. You need to double up on the tough calls if you want to have a chance to win. If he flops you are screwed anyway, might as well back him to go well.

    Thought this post was pretty hilarious.

    Just having a look at Tedesco now with no tackle busts and then I’ll check cam smith with only 70mins, no goals, no KMs and throw a few pens in... oh wait that one is already done for me

    So happy I traded Hayne and Carty out of my team last week. Means Malolney is not really an option for me.
    Hang on,should I trade him in for MMoses??

    Realise Parra still to get some stocks back but Auva’a looks pretty interesting for anyone looking for Round 13 cash out/downgrade fodder to fund something more important.

    Cheap comparative to Hiku/Kennar/Isaako who I consider the other serviceable backup WFB/CTRs. Would prob even be more confident starting Auva’a over those others right now

    I initially thought someone proposed that because they were saying you were a massive fish for not having an avatar. Then I realized who it was! Plinkton!!

    Gone Merrin to Api Koroisau (or should I reverse to DCE, whos more money by about 50k and may play origin?)

    Thinking I will keep Nicholls for 1 more week hoping he takes more of a primary role with Big Sammy out.

    Thoughts on DCE/API?
    Thoughts on holding Brown/Nicholls? (Nicholls = EMG)
    Any injury update on Kennar?

    I was all over Koro until I realised he hasn't always been playing 80, his scoring has still been great but without 80 I don't think he can sustain 52+

    DCE looks the good to be fair But I'm taking a punt on ARey

    Read Kennar was back in training this week so must be close

    Do wonder if Kennar is nailed on? Not even in 18-21 this week. Gagai to wing and Jennings filling his boots.

    400 kick metres, six goals, and three try assists/LBAs every week putting Big Willie through half-gaps close to the line.

    That's 53 points. Then add the two tackles that he completes successfully.

    Hate to break it to you Honeysett, but City vs. Country has been scrapped this year.

    What an odd scoreline, typical liverpool though.. lose to Stoke and beat Man city.
