    Yeah, I just changed that, meant JFH.  I have 28 trades remaining, so I think that means I've banked 2.  Whitehead was just out of the 17 last week.  I did a loophole with him which obviously was a good move and didn't play him.  His constant shifting around is too hard to rely on and doesn't have the attacking plays like TB's and offloads normally to get massive scores without tries.

    Remember this - Whitehead was averaging 53 in the first 3 weeks before he got shifted around

    Smith
    Kikau, Lodge

    DCE, Walker
    Aitken, Hiku
    Teddy, Ponga, Thompson

    Cook, Griffin, Rochow, Havili
    Maloney, JMK, Isaako, Kennar

    Have 126k in the bank. Perhaps Isaako > Basement, if one miraculously shows up?
    Would like to get JFH though

    By my calcs you have exact cash to go Kennar - JFH.
    Otherwise Griffin is the one I would be losing to make way.

    Nothing urgent though. If someone useful turns up in TLT there are a few guys you can cash out on (Isaako, maybe Lodge) but I wouldn't trade them out just for the sake of it.

    4 tries in those 3 games though.

    EDIT: Just noticed he got a picture now. That makes it hard to trade him. Sad

    Ooof, I like it. Zero trades might be the way forward - unless you go Isaako>JFH

    Very true. Whitehead to JFH is a great money and points grab in the one trade. Only thing is I think everyone is getting JFH. So no real upside in my opinion, just getting the same points as everyone else.

    Yep Kennar > JFH is bang on budget. But it means I run on with Isaako which I'm not overly keen on.

    Isaako > Cotric is possible if I downgrade Griffin > JFH but then again max trades and I've only banked two.

    I also don't think I'd be trading this week LB. Unless TLT throws up something spectacular. Kennar ain't losing any money and still has plenty to make if/when he returns. Isaako could be good to offload if you can do it in one move but that's about it really.

    Counter to that argument, not doing that trade misses out on the points everyone is getting. Id rather be riding a wave then sitting behind it.

    There is no right answer, until you can use hindsight.

    He has 15% ownership, it is far from "everyone"

    But if he scores well, then you want his points whether he is ownerd by 5% or 50%, and if he scores poorly then you don't want him and having 13,000 other people suffer with you won't be a great consolation

    I know they are all unknowns.  I'm torn on Whitehead, but I mainly look at value at this early point of the season.  I'm thinking a trade to JFH is the easy trade and bank heaps of coin.  Not sure what else is worthwhile.

    I did merrin to JFH last week. I don't have whitehead in fantasy but i do on supercoach and i'm stuck with the same dilemma. In your shoes i would definitely do whitehead > JFH.

    Thanks for the write up mate. Its looking like I may need to look to cull either or both of Godinet and Doughi. And leave my playing 17 basically as is. AS you said, there is a lot of wait and see on the popular cows atm, see if they can repeat previous weeks points or continue to make money. Think im better off making one trade than none, just to bank a bit of coin to help fund upgrades down the track. Im contemplating a Godinet to 212k player who isn't playing and keeping one player with a red dot.

    I'd look to offload Doueihi and Godinet but really need TLT to come through to make it easier. If you only find the one trade I'd do Doueihi first. Just got more to lose (and his role is a 10 min/injury cover player)

    It seems the most sensible, then next week I'll have the money to upgrade a half or centre.
