    Yeah, sounds premature, BE of 0 with average of 37. Add that he looked to be taking on increasing role with kicking and attacking play v Warriors before bye

    I'm bringing him in this week and you want to get rid, do you want a player swap deal instead

    Yeah ur spot on, just airing out the thoughts i guess.
    Player swap would be fun hey

    I think it's a no trade week, but my mind doesn't get it.
    I've got 18 green dots, so I should sit tight hey. Should mention I do have 723k itb, hence itchy trigger finger.
    No one else is ripe though, have Uele carving it up, Martin back on deck after last week.. only 11 trades left to.

    Smith or Mcinnes?

    Smith slightly cheaper but Mcinnes seems more likely to crack a huge score every now and then.

    Help!

    I'm still tossing up if I (C)ook or (c) Lolo again. The alternative is scratch my Arey to Milf trade and upgrade Rein to Smith and put the C on Smith.

    I can't bring myself to grab non Rd16 players, especially one who plays for the Panthers. It just has too many red flags for me.

    Just on the other side of the trading RTS fence. I'm bringing him in

    I'm kind of forced to do it this round to avoid a Ponga zero. But, he was on my list to trade in ahead of r16 anyway. I'm not too concerned with his BE or a bit of sketchy scoring.

    I guess it depends on team situation etc

    I strongly believe Smith will remind everyone in the back end of the season why he's the fantasy GOAT.

    Does seem a bit fired up against Rabbits since joining in as recent as March?  Any alts to confess??
    Although Rabz does fit a lot into some of his posts, would put some in straight jackets I reckon.

    Same situation. Probably end up doing it as well.

    If you're forced to bring someone in to avoid a zero, it makes sense. At this point, would you expect him to be in your final 17? I'm going to be looking at Teddy, Ponga and Turbo.

    I am hoping Turbo goes on a bit of a slump so I can grab him after origin.

    Shaun Johnson won't play but should play next week - John Morris. Wade Graham is back but no word whether he starts or not. Josh Morris is being rested.

    Yeah, but he had people thinking that was the secret to the entire game. He even bought players for the specific purpose of dropping 100 points behind every week Rolling Laugh People actually followed his advice.

    I don't know how many people followed his advice. The majority, myself included, were saying ad nauseum that it was a flawed strategy and so new posters would be able to decide, well there's these non-conventional strategies but they are risky and unpopular. A lot of Matt's posts rubbed me the wrong way for the reasons very well documented here today so I won't go on about them. I just wanted to add a couple of points in his defense.

    Firstly that it's good that he has some out there ideas, they do generate discussion different to the normal echo chamber we have even if a lot of it I consider flawed logic. Secondly in terms of the looping thing he was rather generous in responding to lots of questions regarding how the auto emergencies work. I had seen several occasions where someone had given the wrong advice and Matt had cleared it up before I had a chance to.

    Anyhow, like I said a lot of it rubbed me the wrong way, but I still hope he comes back.

    Not a chance i'd be trusting Turbo's hammy over RTS. I had him for his 15 and it didn't bother me a bit. All WFB's barring Ponga have bad scores, it's part of the game.

    I think I am sold on my trades this week. Young/Tolman for Dearden/McInnes. I have to remember to look at the big picture and not just this week. This allows me to go Rein/Sivo/CNK/Arey or Martin to Bateman/Smith/Cow/(RTS via Martin),(Turbo, Wighton or DCE via Arey) next week.

    Thinking about taking a punt on Hutchinson (mainly for the cash it frees up) so trades this week are
    Young & Carty out Bateman and Hutchinson in which leaves enough in the tank to trade Reynolds and Rein out next week for whatever two keepers I fancy (Pearce / DCE / Jrbo /RTS / Mcinnes)
    Can cover Ponga with Lomax Vomit Reynolds with Dearden and have enough on the bench to cover all other positions except WFB (so screwed if Teddy sits out).
    I know To'oo seems a better buy than Hutchinson but 40K plus potential rd 16 points (grasping at that) has swayed me.
    Any options I am missing?
