    Matterson will miss rounds 14, 15 and 17

    If he plays in 16, he is likely to drop cash.

    So unless you are very tight on trades and/or have solid cover, its probably beneficial to sell - bring him back round 18/19, if at all

    I own Crichton, Kikau, Martin.

    Would 16.Kikau 17.Gosiewski 18. Crichton 19. Martin be the way to go, looping in Martin if Crichton scores under, what... 35? 40? Or should I have Kikau at 18?

    Thanks guys. Cleary the best option? I guess Koroisau the other alternative, but I’d expect Cleary to score better over the course of the year.

    Thinking of selling matto now and holding Murray for this week at least. Allows me to turn Thompson into turbo. So current trades look like this

    Matto > Cleary
    Thompson > Turbo

    Not really focusing on R17 - getting final team the way I'm playing it atm.

    I think Cook, Crichton see minimal minutes if it’s a blowout scoreline. I think it will be. I’d put Kikau at 16 because I think he’ll score a double on that edge against the Raiders bounce So yeah keep as is.

    Murray and Griffin > Smith and Arrow has now turned into Matterson and Thompson > Smith and Arrow.

    That changed real quick.

    Cheers.
    Probably B - only options I have as a replacement are fonua, Tuala and Martin. Could put sorro at 17 though and see what Cook gets

    Smith is a lock for captain for me I reckon. We love getting thrashed by the Storm.

    Smith (c)
    Taupau, Fifita
    J. Trbojevic, Arrow, Taumalolo
    DCE, Koroisau
    Olive, Aitken
    Ponga, Teddy, Fonua

    Cook, Murray, Martin, Griffin
    Cogger, Isaako, Hiku, Brimson

    Risk and reward type of trade. Can score 20 or 60. He's scored well the past month so is due a shocker lol. Away to Storm not exactly a good week to get him either.

    Now I got 16 trades going into this round. Is it silly to trade out Cook for a cheaper keeper and then put him in after a lil drop in price?

    thinking about doing Matterson>Koro + Croker>TTurbo and holding Dugan.
    But am I nuts for bringing in two non-R17 players? Especially one that just went big and I ignored for the bye.

    I like it. I think it was Milchcow that mentioned that matterson is gonna miss like 3 out of the 4 next weeks anyway and someone else (maybe Milchcow again) said something about the trade off kinda, of having someone rnd 17 that isnt as good just to get more points in 1 round and lose more in the build up. EG - me holding Thompson and Nicholls for this one week and them dribbling out a 40ish score combined...wasnt really worth it in my case at least

    Many will be doing it with less trades remaining. Less risk for you with more left than most.

    Those that have him, it could be an ok time to trade out Watson. Plays the Roosters and then Storm, BE of 36 this week. If he averages 45 for the next three rounds he makes only 19k and then has a bye. Time to fly the coup based on that.
