    (reposting since other thread got locked)

    Interesting position to be in, but I think I roll back my trades for this week and execute the below.

    Line up at this moment (9 Trades | 98k)

    Mann
    Haas Mofo
    Carrigan Lolo Leilua
    Munster Luai
    Talau Manu
    Ponga Hammer Teddy (C)

    Bench: Arrow, Starling B Sironen, Simmonsson (Loop)
    EMG: Hethrington, Averillo, Pape, Grant

    I've I roll back my trades (Best & Rudolf --> Averillo & Munster), and instead trade Grant for Munster, I then get MITB and 10 trades OR I instead trade out Grant & Best for Munder and WFB/Centre Cover...Idea being to have one more active player to create value I suppose. I can leave as it, but a few options now available...

    Even with this Grant news it's still important to forward plan for future weeks rather than just impulse trade

    For example I am probably trading in Munster for Grant, to go along with Moses for Hammer/Fermor this week

    This leaves me the cash to grab an uber gun next week, Bateman and McInnes the front runners

    With Brooks being over 100k cheaper than Munster, I briefly considered the idea, but that extra 100k doesn't make a huge difference to my squad in the long term(20th man being 360k instead of 260k)

    These final trades we make will be among the most important of the season so tread very lightly

    WOO I have found trades I like and it still gets me to my final team with 3 trades for the last 5 rounds and a 50K buffer for price rises/falls

    I am also relying on Sironen to become a 40-45 point scorer and stop getting moved around everywhere each week… Grouse to see him score 48 being moved into the halves.

    Wow the hits keep on coming don't they.

    Was so set on my trades this week for a change too (Best to RTS and Randall to Mcintyre).

    Think I will pivot to Grant to Mcinnes and Best to Mcintyre. Will have to get through another week with Herbie/HTF looping into wfb3. Then next week will look to use Luai to upgrade wfb.

    On the plus side I've wanted Mcinnes all year so will be nice to have him

    Please rank the order of trade in's out of

    1. Tevaga
    2. Munster
    3. Moses

    Cover is not really an issue.

    I’m 2 players short without any trades. Was thinking of going grant to Fifita, and then upgrading Randall to either of those 2 (630 in the bank). Who would you recommend instead?

    I've got Averillo and McIntyre at CTR ATM and Latrell Mansour and Papy (normally) in WFB. 

    1) Best/Grant > Ponga/Lolo with 1k to spare.
    2) Best/Grant > Ponga/Thompson with 284k spare to use next week. 
    3) Best/Grant > Lolo/RTS with 142k spare to use next week. 

    Obviously could swap Thompson/RTS for other mid-keepers in their range for options 2-3. What would you guys do. 1, 2, or 3?

    Depending on positions but Arrow, or LThompson?

    This would be a whole lot better if I didn't need a WFB or CTR to field 17 this week. Might just go McIntyre and a gun then use the change for another gun next week

    I think I'm settled on which way to go, but I need to decide the order to get McInnes/Moses.

    If I get Moses this week, I'm pretty certain on affording Mcinnes in one trade next week (unless he goes massive).. if I get Mcinnes this week, it will be touch and go on whether I can get Moses in a single trade next week.

    @VERTiiGO

    From your team on p.50 of the last thread.

    You should maybe put Papy at 17, Randall at 18 & Young at 19 - just in case Randall plays. If he does you get to decide on his score or moving Young up to 17.

    It's a long shot but you wouldn't lose anything

    Edit: Hmmm, I'm not correct there, as Papy will be locked, but I'm sure there's something you can do

    Sounds like the decision has been made for you. Welcome to the Moses train

    Is that ITB total a typo, or do you really have over half a million left?
