    Any ideas for my team? I burn my trades every week (haven't banked any) in the mindset that I "have to" but I'm trying to change that. Can you see any major issues or is this fine to leave for this week?

    Thanks guys, I really appreciate the time you guys put into helping!

    I can go Deouihi > Su'a and Lodge > Matterson for exactly $0 remaining.

    Clearly it's a sign.

    @Brendos1er Not too bad, main concern is your bench and halves. Sao, Kennar, and Croker options for trade out if you need extra funds

    Two peaked players out for a keeper and a cashie, while moving money from your emergencies to your starting side. Two thumbs up from me. :ThumbsUp: :ThumbsUp:

    Edit: Damn. Beaten by Stormtrooper. Should have just covered them all in a blanket of no more money and don't look like keepers Smile

    This is delicious so decided to go do a bit more looking. See responses in bold.

    Edit: Fuck me, I literally typed up a whole list on this in response but somewhy it didn't post. Have no idea how to go get it back. Will go back and do it again shortly when I've caught up with a few others here... Soz guys.

    If you think TPJ and Lodge have peaked, and you can see a cashie you like, you can downgrade one and upgrade the other. Moves more of your team value into your starting side and gets in a new cashie to raise that team value higher.

    No need unless you see a cashie you think will be successful, so holding the trades is fine also.

    @Mearcats - Cheers mate, solid rundown of the squad. Now that you say I guess I can continue to hold some players. I might just be toiling with the poor scores of some last week. I think the best thing to do is wait for TLT and cash out Croker to a new cow...just depends who. Then that gives me cash and allows me to look at some of my team (TPJ, Rochow, Kennar) and also players I want (Surgess, S'ua, Gutho) and pick who I can upgrade next week. Love all the help I have received from you lot this year! I hope at time I have repaid some of that help through the year.

    Cashing out Croker is a good idea but be aware it won't net you the bank to bring Surgess in. Leaves you about 20k short if my math is correct. If you're planning on going the single trade route this week to bank up then he's defs the pick of the lot to go first though mate.

    24 trades remaining is a concern and leaning towards a no trade this week since im versing weaker teams in my H2H

    I'll be all over this in 15mins or so mate, just gotta go across the road and buy some ciggies. Unfortuantely, in this country that literally takes about 15mins

    Considering Widdop and Griffin to Matterson and Taumalolo/Koroisau.

    Dealing with JT and Widdop as my halves recently has completely fucked my season.

    Yeah mate looking at making Croker my only trade as a cash out! Then I’ll look at bringing surges or the likes in next week

    Whiddop could turn it up again at any point mate I still think he’ll be some what podish and still a decent scorer. I think Thurston is more a priority to get out

    If I bring in Matterson and Koro then JT will be in my reserves (if Murray plays). The reasons I would trade Widdop over JT is 1) price and 2) JT plays round 13 and Widdop doesn't.

    I think replacing those two in my halves with Matterson and Koro improves my team immensely considering how bloody awful Widdop and JT have been lately.

    Perfect reason to hold some bank mate! You have been spending a few trades like you said which is a slight concern but to be honest the team is looking worth it. Maybe it's time to consolidate for a week or so.

    The Matterson idea isn't terrible but I kinda like Cap'n Ranta's assessment on him from earlier (either earlier this thread or 49-50 in the last thread). I think if you haven't already got him he may have sailed. Could well be wrong, he is afterall priced at a 49 avg for a 55 point averaging player and if he continues to score 55 will make another 93k in the next three weeks (according to MTB's AWESOME predictor on his site) but if I had to chose between getting him or letting that ship sail and getting SJ I'd go SJ.

    The only other area for concern for you is your centers. But that's a minor concern. When I retype my breakdown on the trade out guys in response to Caps earlier post, have a read of it and see my thoughts there. Will take me a while but will get it done in an hour or so. That'll also give you my thoughts on a few other guys in your team like Thompson, Isaako and TPJ.

    Long and short, I'd hold and consolidate this week mate. Bank those trades, you'll feel better for it and then get ready to make a few moves in the coming weeks! All looking good though bro!

    Matterson if he continues getting 80 is still a decent option for the halves, averaging over 50 there when very few are and the cheapest optiion of the lot

    For me TLolo only a few thousand more is a better long term option but obviously only available in the 2RF

    Early trades for me seem like

    Lodge - Gosiewski
    Griffin - Taumalolo

    Still holding Fifita and Murray
