    I can cover him with Taupau (if Haas is gtg) and move To'o up onto interchange, but I'm strongly considering trading him to Milford and trading someone else back to Fifita. I have 10 trades. I couldn't justify it with 8 trades, I can barely justify it with 10.

    If you traded Fifita to a FRF/2RF that played RD16 he would need to average 48+ to outscore Fifita in his remaining games.

    Fifita 58x9=522
    Twal/AFB 51x11=561

    Good news imo, was looking at our expiring contracts the other week and was hoping they'd re-sign him.

    Seeing the length of Mbye and Brooks' contracts makes me sad though.

    If Haas is out as well, something like:

    FRF Taukeiaho Taupau

    Martin into the 2nd row

    CNK, Havili &/or Xerri used for 2 Interchange spots. Hopefully Hodgson rests up for another week.

    Although, I'm super tempted to flick him to Twal tbh and risk not having him for the run home. I don't have the trades to bring him back...

    AFB is on a bye week 16.

    Also, most should be able to cover Fif next week with a score around 30-40 you'd hope.

    So Fifita 58x9=522 +35 (mid point)=557
    Round 16 player with the extra game would need to score 557/11~51 average and thats just to break even. Presumably if you are burning a trade here you wanna make 50 point, in which case 607/11=55

    Matterson/Milf seem like the options... but Matterson is a risk with Origin.

    Im not sure its worth it unless you are bringing him back in and making some money at the same time!

    TLDR: I reckon Fifi out AND in is a decent option if you have 10 trades or more left, otherwise I wouldnt bother.

    Good point mate. Just getting the conversation started haha.

    I can play Taupau/SST and work the bench a bit over the next 2 rounds.

    Yea not the best situation. Hoping Packer is moved on to the dragons or panthers. Both are interested, guessing it comes down to $$$. Cap fine has really hampered us this year in trying to get someone in before June 30.

    I'm looking at Fifita to TTurbo or Milford and then just picking him back in R17 or R18 for Watson who was going to be moved on to TTurbo anyway (R17 or R18 depending on need for WFBs in R17 and price difference)

    Not too sure on how I could calculate expected points between 2 players because I was looking to get TTurbo anyway.

    Leaning the way of TTurbo ahead of Milford despite R16 which feels weird but how sustainable is TTurbo's average
    TTurbo: 62 * 10 = 620, Milford: 54.1 * 11 = 595

    The Trbo option would hopefully give you some extra points over who ever would otherwise be your 17th man week 15. But that would be it.... So I dont see that as a particularly great option to be honest. 1 trade for 15 points or so?

    Milf is solid, particularly if you are getting Fifi back. You gain 10 points or so this week, then another 50 next week. 60 points for the one trade essentially without compromising your final 17 (in fact you make it a bit stronger). Can you find a way to get TTrbo in as well though? Got a feeling he is going to be a nice POD for the las t10 rounds or so.

    Turbo has never averaged more than 50 let alone 60 in a season.

    He averaged 48 last year and that was with a 115 in there.

    Isn't Milford in the same position as Matterson re possible origin selection i.e. Milford could be 1 injury away from playing the same as Matterson is.

    I've got Twal and Whitbread, but also planned to bring in SST for Havili before rd 16. With the suspension I'll bring in SST before rd 15. But saying all that... next week things will probably get another shake-up with injuries post origin

    If I wanted TTurbo for the run home getting Milford it'd either be sacrificing a 2RF on the bench or extremely luxury trade of RTS/Munster to TTurbo if I had funds and trades.
    Current HLFs are Munster and Ponga and current WFBs are Tedesco, RTS (brought in for CNK this week), Watson
    Watson would shift back to bench and then move probably Havili back to EMG should Fifita to Milford be done (FRFs would then be Taupau and Haas with Carrigan as back up for one round before getting SST for R16)

    Yes.  MBye was in some doubt in game 1 and Milf would gave taken his spot if he wasn't fit.

    I don't mind a Fifi to Twal trade actually but I need Smith. He is a must for 16.

    The depth isn't there in the forwards to trade out Fifita, and not bring him back in IMO. If you have 2 trades and think it's worth 100 points (say if you brought in Twal), go for it.

    I don't have the trades, and have other problems to fix myself! I ditched Lomax and jump on Staggs after I heard he's injured last weekend.

    I have CNK and Arrow chopped for next week. Young and Havilii the following. Hopefully Dearden isn't far off at that stage and be my 19th man for the run home.

    I kinda feel like with Fifita it could be the make or break of people up the top - went through the top 100 yesterday and Fifita is owned by every single player in the top 100

    Usually I just play risk averse and just pick the safe option, whereas you see a lot of the time that if you jump on a risky player and it can pay off (Ponga 2017, say like Kenny when not in top 30, KBrom at the start of the year - even Bateman to a lesser extent) which is why I'm leaning towards the trade. Not saying that Milford is risky but you'd think the safe play is keeping Fifita as he's a final 17 player

    It would leave my team as (8 trades, 15k, hopefully using 3 trades for R16 to get 11 players)
