I hope so. He was on the chopping block this week but others intervened. Here's my action for this week/tonight. Please don't hit me up for copyright infringements, robelgordo, but I like your explanations so I'll do a little similar;
Willie Mason - been really happy with Bill this year. Truly thought it was a terrible options to start the year but he's been one of my better players (which says not much, but he was good). I had planned last week to dump him for Webcke this week, but after he scored a 63 last round I toyed with the idea of keeping him. Until team lists came out and he doesn't play 16 or 17!! Don't need to find out why - made my mind up for me. But thank you, Bill, you've been solid.
Danny Wicks - I hadn't anticipated this bye for the Saints. Didn't really want to dump him yet but I had 8 out for round 17 and he was one of the most expendable. It was good while it lasted.
Darren Albert - another (kinda) loyal servant and I'm sure I'll miss out on more two-try opuses but as per robelgordo, just don't need those 10's anymore. His BE is is higher than his average now so he'll lose solid cash if he dishes out more 10's. His value is vital to my trades this week. You've been good too, Daz... at times. Farewell, friend.
Nathan Friend - lol @ Storm's bye in R17. I truly am a dickhead. Anyway, scoring a 5-10 or something for round 16 and a bye in 17 - obviously he had to go.
Dane Tilse - goes without saying.
Jarryd Hayne - am I genuinely the last "player" to pick him up? Had to hold off last week so glad he didn't go big. Shame he misses R16, but at least I have coverage. At least he plays R17. Trusting he'll be more consistent than Albert, based on commentary so far. I sold him for about 50K more than I bought him too. Victory. Jeez I'm sharp at this game.
Shane Webcke - goes without saying, but I will say anyway that he's a very sexy replacement for Big Bill Mason at more than 100K less! Sexy.
Ben Kennedy - not unhappy with this acquisition at all. I did have my eyes on Lance Thompson too, but was about 20K short. Not a bad plan B.
Anyway, Kearney and Martin were two of my main trade out targets this week but playing R17 saved both (as well as Martin being one of only two centres left in my squad). I hope that they can turn into Gasnier next week.
