    So far, I've brought in dugan for rochow.  and am questioning if I need to keep cash generating going. 12.54m team value with 210k ITB after the dugan trade.

    CCrichton is the biggest pain, thinking i should just bite bullet and swap for sorenson or some other cow with better cash prospects.

    I think if I had Chrichton I would just sit on him. He's like everyones Croker, so it's no big deal with the rest of the team you have. He'll should get an extended run now with Mansour out. Maybe Havilli to Sorenson, save some money and get a money maker in?

    I'm going Rochow to either Sua or Sorenson, but Havilli could go for one of them too.

    EDIT: Actually, maybe when Cleary returns, Peachy goes to centre with Blake or Whare to the wing, bumping Crichton out? Not sure.

    My team value is 12.87 with free money also. Hmm...not sure if that's enough.

    The only things I see wrong here are Maloney (which will be upgraded when he's peaked) and your second row looks light (although Brown will boost that when he's back). Your bench is a bit weak so perhaps trade one of Crichton, Kennar or Havili to Rein and use him as a scoring option and stepping stone to a gun benchie in a few weeks? Otherwise cash one of them out to a Sorenson?

    We are all so lucky we live life the way we want and enjoy our fantasy and our footy thanks to others in the past fighting for our country and freedom.

    You've burnt through a lot of trades yet you still have Leilua and Milne there. I'd prioritise those two quick smart. I'd maybe swap one of them to Coggar if anything, cause you have Rein that will have to go soon also.

    So Isaako up to centre and JMK into your backs? I'd be shuffling your team around a bit by moving Matters to half, JFH down to 2RF and Fifita into FRF. Not sold on Cogger but if you need the cash then it looks ok as your backup JMK would now be in your starting side. Your starting 13 would be pretty sick with Isaako and JMK your only real flaws (but I have them both starting lol) while your bench would be upgraded over the coming weeks (Cook, Jacks, Rein, Kikau).

    I say go for those trades, it makes your team look stronger, that's for sure.

    All are solid options. The only risk is De Belin. Hess or Crichton if you want a POD, Lolo would be the highest owned and good value while Turbo is consistent and Matterson looks to be a legit elite option. If you need a half, probably go Matterson. Otherwise next i'd go is Lolo.

    Cheers.....I’m thinking I’ll bite the bullet and go wth RMat. DPP is great. Currently have a Moses and Gutherson halves pairing.

    It depends if you think you can get to a decent 17 without needing them to be upgraded. Remember you do have to use 2 each to bring one in and one out, so I'm not too sure there.

    Looking at your EMG players really gives you the cash generation forecast. Anyone in the 17 needs to be replaced, so cash wise its neutral. Unless you're able to jump off a cow and onto a rising fallen gun at the right time.

    A couple of cows are turning into keepers and quite a few guns aren't getting near where they were. Interesting times.

    My 17 is ok but my EMG is terrible if I do the trades I plan this week. Might need a rethink...

    Variations of that trade seem pretty popular this week. I'm not against.

    If you can afford RMat I would do it. Having a DDP high scoring half alone is great value. I'm planning on bringing him in but can't afford him yet.

    I'm thinking of going for a cash grab and a bit of a punt this week. Rochow - Sorenson and Havili to Cogger. The following week I'll have enough cash to bring in Matterson.

    Pros: Getting through a massive work load and averaging 73pts his last 3 games, playing big minutes, plays round 13, highly unlikely origin player, DPP. What's not to like?

    Cons: Expensive - should have got him 3 weeks ago
