    I’m currently ranked 417 up from 938 - the highest I’ve ever been from my 3 seasons of fantasy

    This is my team atm
    7 trades left and 28k itb

    Smith
    Fifita, Haas
    Lolo, Matterson, Murray
    Johnson, Brooks
    Nikora, Bateman
    Tedesco, Ponga, RTS

    McInnes
    Taukeiaho
    Twal
    Watson

    Tevaga
    Staggs
    Verrills
    Dearden

    Honest opinions, how high can I realistically finish?

    You've got plenty of trades left compared to the rest of us (I've got 5 left at 296th), and a good 17.

    I recommend you sell Dearden to DBrown at the very least, since you'll get some points and money while Dearden sits there injured

    Honestly with seven trades left, I reckon you could easily find yourself in the top 200 maybe even in the top 100 with a few well timed trades and depending on how many key players cop injuries.
    All depends on what happens from here on in, having those trades in hand will play a big part for you

    My plan was to downgrade Dearden to a 212k player and use that money to upgrade Watson > Cook

    Yeah but not enough to sing and dance about. Traded hard to make up ground and going backwards is a kick in the gut

    I'm bloody desperate to get rid of Farah myself. Lost probably $200k on him now. Have Watson too, but he can turn it on in any position, he's a WFB for me so would need to go for Turbo to make a trade worthwhile. Probably will just hold him.. What's the word with Ponga? And Dearden.

    Who's thinking of a Surgess come back late in the season? Or are his fantasy days done. He's an easy 18th man option for me.

    Fainu and Burns are better 18th man options than Surgess in the same price bracket

    Very high if you can work your way into getting Tommy T for Watson and SST out for another more consistent gun like Jakey T.

    Basically buy the Trbojevic's and you're golden.

    Good shout on Burns, getting him in for Dearden will give me coverage for Ponga. Watson can cover halves later in the season and possibly be my 18th man if Burns keeps his scores going..

    If I did above, I can spend about $670k for a Farah replacement in my 17 - If someone is putting their hand up as a keeper.. Fainu would be good but Koro isn't far off, and I don't have the trades to bother.
