    My 8 trades is looking pretty good at this stage. Probably need some carnage to rise the ranks and win my leagues though.

    After this week I will likely only have 2 trades and 16 players, or bring in a benchy to make 17 hold of on a gun for another week and be left with 1 trade for the rest of the year.

    As for start of year POD I chose Issako

    This is me 100%.

    I held Edwards, Garner, Brown, Burns, Sele too long. Traded players like Capewell, Garrick, Mahoney too early as they kicked on with big scores after I sold them.
    Had players like Arey, Dearden, Cleary, Lomax, Young who I traded in and got injured/suspended not long after.

    i have a tedency to cut and run early, helps in a few cases, Farah, Holland and Edwards spring to mind, but i'm just as if not more likely to cut a cow i think has peaked who bounces back immediately and earns a chunk of extra change that i miss out on.

    That’s the part of fantasy I struggle with. I find it hard to cut my losses early trading out players I trusted from preseason, or trading in players with unsustainable scoring patterns(Bateman with 10 tbs and 2 lbs, turns out he is just a freak)

    Interesting point MS!

    I guess it is because I'm less personally invested in my start team. I lean very heavily on the cookie cutter plus any other bits of gold I stumble across. I only really do high level analysis or stress testing of assumptions etc. This probably loosens up the early trade decision process.

    Edit, I spend waaaaay more time on trade planning and research through the season

    Previous seasons I was pretty patient with players hoping they'd come good. This season I was more ruthless dropping Holland, Edwards, Gillet, and Macca in the first 4 rounds which did wonders for my ranking

    Shit no Teddy and I don't have any WFB scorer. Do I spend one of my 3 remaining trades on getting a WFB back-up?

    Fuck you Robinson. I traded in Teddy for round 15. I have had him play for me once and won't have him again until round 18. Fuck me.

    Coates on the wing, Farmworth in the centres. Isaako at 21.

    Surely this is a dumb question but would you go Martin > Burns over Watson > Burns so Watson and Burns can cover Ponga and Teddy?
