I'll almost certainly do Yeo to Haas. Purely speculation but I wouldn't be surprised if he has two weeks rest.
Thanks for the input all. Much appreciated.
MTB, I was thinking this too, that Yeo might actually get a couple of weeks rest. I think it's one of the major reasons this possible trade has gained such traction for me.
MS also makes a lot of sense about how many points Yeo vs Cook will score over the next 4 weeks.

, Wolfie, MS, MTB's advice makes perfect sense from an overall perspective. Just to throw in a H2H view if Yeo is out. 3 trades left for 2 or 3 matches is probably ok, but you want to make sure you have at least one left for the GF if you make it.
Does your opponent have Yeo? With a strong 18th man? Any other holes he has to fill eg Latrell or Talau at CTR? Any idea how many trades he might have left/be prepared to use? Does he lurk on here?
Yeah mate, I'm being relatively tight with trades because I live in fear of making it to the H2H GF (still a long way to go for that) and then seeing Cleary get rested that week. Would completely blow the whole thing up if I didn't have a trade left to accomodate that.
All this said, I went out in the semi final last year with two trades in my pocket and man did that hurt.
Anyway, my opponent doesn't have Yeo and him being out creates a significant disadvantage for me. He has Latrell but, like me, two bottom feeder centres he can use to fill in - both significantly better than my Talau. He also has 4 trades left but he's more focused on getting Haas in. I think he'll use at least one trade this week, if only to get Haas in. And I don't think he lurks here, but you never know. I do get paranoid about that sometimes, lol.
He's outscored me over the last two weeks, but I was missing Haas for those two weeks and played Talau last week, so we're evenly matched. Having Yeo out would make it slightly unevenly matched.
Based on all y'all's much appreciated good advice... and pending TLT, I think I'm going to pull the trigger on this trade.
Thanks for the input, chaps.
