    How seriously are people taking this comp?

    I want to maintain flexibility on running it smoothly, without screwing people over by changing things on the go.

    Will changing the number of NRL rounds per game week stuff with people's planning?

    If people want a schedule locked in, I'll probably do 1 nrl round per game week for a few weeks to allow people to jump on cows, before ramping up to 2 per week. Then go back to 1 per week for the last couple weeks to allow jockeying for position in the run home.
    Having a bit of flexibility around it just let's me adjust depending on how thd the comp goes

    Correct, that is my current plan. But would like some flexibility in case it's not working

    I’m happy with the flexibility too. I was just asking as I thought I had missed a fixed schedule Smile

    One thing that is different from most seasons recently appears to be lots of cows and underpriced players, (more than we are used to seeing, especially with the certainty of knowing who many of the best cows go on to be as players). This makes the potential for significant disparity between those that have selected the right cows to start with and those that may be struggling to field a team of 17 after 2 game rounds.

    How about setting a maximum number of trades total, have a fixed schedule both for game rounds and trades per week, but if you are in a situation where you have only 19 or less players named in starting 17s, you can access trades earlier. i.e. 19 players named, can access 1 extra trade, 18 players named, can access 2 extra trades that round, but they are deducted from your total number of trades available.

    That way if you get stuck with too few active players, you can still attempt to recover, providing a safety net for players, without having to adjust on the fly if people are getting in bad spots, which makes it hard to plan ahead easily, as things may change in ways that may not favour your strategy.

    I am taking it pretty seriously, have been researching what happened in 2005 season and built up similar spreadsheets to those I did for the 2020 season.

    For those looking to get in the mood, here is the 2005 grand final. Includes the Benji magic flick pass try.

    I personally like the simplicity of a fixed number of trades per Gameweek

    I think the first 5 rounds will be the most important for fixing errors and picking the right cows. I'd be happy with flexibility depending on how the comp is running, but probably want to be able to make changes each week early

    Just clarifying something after a PM conversation.

    There are 2 players called Ben Jones who have played NRL in the past 15 years

    The one in this game is the Raiders back rower (the card below says 'Prop' but I can confirm he had 0 starts as prop in 2006, and more than 0 starts at 2nd row)

    More recently the Roosters had a hooker also named Ben Jones - but he didn't play in 2006

    Have come up with a first draft. Picked a lot of players I know and have punted on the old cheap centre strategy. Some expensive picks across the board so hoping I've got most bases covered. Hope my cheapie forwards hang around too. Will play around a bit more and send during the week.

    Hi Milchcow, for the players in Round 1 teams not i your spreadsheet, are you going to add them in an updated version? Smile

    With plenty of gun centre options available I've spent way more than I normally would to grab some bankable points

    I've gone cheaper than normal at WFB, but would love to sneak someone like Schifcofske in

    Strategy wise I'll be looking to grab a few Sharks players after round 1, since they only miss 1/25 rounds from then onwards. With both Sharks byes over before Knights start their byes could consider stacking Knights players then moving to Sharks for the run home

    Also remember the scoring isn't typical fantasy scoring. There will be some backs putting up some big scores

    Another favour, rather than send me multiple team updates every day, please just wait until later in the week. I'm not going to change your team in my spreadsheet every time you tinker

    Yeah sorry I know I sent a 2nd version following the Ben Jones bombshell. But I have no intention of sending any more updates.

    Is it just a test pattern for 30 mins?
