    Getting Martin before his first game is definitely helping with the pain of bringing in both Lamb and Sorenson.

    Still need to decide on Lamb and Sorenson at some point.

    Actually is Watson really worth the trade? He's not a cow and he's not a keeper. I guess he can be classified as somewhat of a cow with that BE but really he has to keep the points flowing. You are really only getting him for an extra round 13 player.

    15 trades remaining:

    Really leaning on a no trade this week given the critical amount of trades remaining. But really tempted with Thompson to Fonua. But Fonua at $350k makes it very justify the trade

    Cook
    Fifi Arrow
    TPJ Tolo Jurbo
    DCE Matto
    Hiku Isaako
    Ponga Teddy Thompson

    Macca CS9 Kikau Martin
    JFH Lamb Cogger Katoa

    JFH to Brimson
    Thompson to Fonua

    Thoughts?

    Got him last week as base stats were better than people making out and was only priced at 34pts. Was ideal trade for Rein. There's so few decent cows that are R13 friendly. Jensen just under 400k if he retains decent minutes. Going to need a lot of pivot trades next few weeks

    If a cheap cow emerges I will definitely go that way instead. Needs to hit 700k if you trade him in this week to be worth it, which I'm sure he is able to do, will get a lot of touches alongside Cogger you would think.

    If he can maintain his current scoring (averaging 56 in the 4 games since he's come back) then he is certainly worth it.

    I have my doubts about his ability to maintain scoring that high long term, and he is the sort of player that Pookus will complain about breaking in a month's time. But its the sort of call I've been wrong on many times before.

    who would be better to bring in this week, Taupau or arrow?

    Initial thought is Taupau. Not playing origin, playing rd 13. Only thing is he is top dollar, and eventually I’m going to want arrow

    Anyone who held Maloney willing to do so again, or is a trade straight to DCE the obvious move?

    I'm hesitant on DCE, still think he might get the origin #7.

    At the end of the day, Maloney doesn't play round 13 either.

    So it seems RFM out this week as well (source himself on chat app posted on FB) so not playing next 2 is he a sell?

    jensen is interesting as he could start. just waiting on news about scotts injury. if TMM (255k) continues to start at the back he might be worth a punt. i think AE nightmares are a thing of the past with the changes made, he may even get updated with dpp

    Thinking either no trades this week or Kikau to Harris.

    Depends on if Maloney holds the kicking duties or not (both goal kicking and general play) adds a nice base to his score if he gets to kick a lot.

    There was an update this morning that Scott's injury isn't too bad, and could potentially play this week.

    Anyone keen on Gutherson @ 468k. He plays round 13 but plays for a poor team.

    Harris is at a good price with his output versus Taupau who is premium
    Brimson will average 30s and peak around $450k versus Watson who is going well but could bomb at any moment if the Knights aren't firing

    Logic would suggest Harris and Brimson are good value... I think I'd still go Taupau though

    Someone who's top score this year is 38? Need to see a bit more evidence of his potential scoring

    Too late to trade in R Martin? Looking to go RFM to him to bank the cash or I can go straight to Kapow?
