    Go with your gut & do it mate (I also have a good feeling re Randall). Young's time seems to be near being over with Bateman, Whitehead, CHN probably the preferred back row so Young will be on the bench soon.

    It is, but how many points ar eyou betting him to make 40 odd each game?

    40 odd is the same I would expect from the other two roughly, so essentially it is 1 Trade vs $200k

    That's a really great way of looking at it mate. Plus already have a 3rd half on the bench for cover.

    I’ve still got 7 trades left after doing it and it frees up another 197k leaving me with 236k spare.

    Siro looking like an easy playable player for the run home mate, so I like this trade.

    Around 55mins maybe 60, is that what we expect from Randall?

    You’d think he should score around 40ish wouldn’t you?!....

    I'm wondering if Starling even cracks the starting role too. He looks fine playing the minutes he is and could play longer.

    Yeah Siro looks like he could be a decent 13-17 player for a while

    Can you do both and Hunt may move back to HOK in a week or teo

    I can do the Randall trade this week and then I’ll have 7 trades and 300k to sort out Norman next week. Will need to be another half though to keep cover intact

    Reading the Knights forum & the O'Brien comments you could infer that he'll play hooker 60 mins for Randall & 20 mins for Crossland. O'Brien talks up Crossland's defense & noted he's gained a bit of weight & says the good thing about a non-hooker playing hooker is that he'll get the ball to where it needs to go i.e. the hlfs instead of over-playing his hand & going for himself.
    Yeah, I listened to that also and thought mann might stay where he is.

    As a Mann owner I was hoping he would play 20 mins at hok but it looks like he'll remain in his position. I'm not sure he'll score that well vs Storm so I was hoping Mann could get bonus points at dummy hlf.

    Mann, Randall Starling for me.

    Young has one good game when Raiders were smashed with injuries. Add Bateman and CHN.

    Starling looks like he can play the minutes.

    Surely he is the safer bet.

    @Camo123 wrote:I'm surprised people think 4 trades for injuries is being risky. I think it's around the right amount. Avoiding/getting cursed with injuries is purely based on luck anyway, you could have 1 trade and avoid every injury or you could have 4 trades and it not be enough

    As I said yesterday I ran with final 7 rounds last year with 1 trade and only got punished in final round. Obviously you can only use 2 in final round (assuming point of max carnage) so you need to set up team right before it

    Again mentioning point about cow to keeper, the longer you wait to upgrade to keeper the less points you gain

    This year is nothing like any year we have had previously. The speed of the game has significantly increased so players tire quicker. Compounded with the fact that no team has a bye to rest these players I can state as a fact that players that are important to their teams title chances will be rested in the run home. That could be less minutes in the back end of games, or missing entire games but it will happen. Inconveniently the players that are important to title chances are the same players we want to own in fantasy so we will see carnage at the back end. I'm still convinced the extra 50 points from upgrades (5x10 rounds) will be undone in round 20 when most teams are running out less than 17 players and those that banked trades can pivot
