Thanks mate, as I said to Wolfie just above though, pull the trigger on Randall to Hiku if Teddy is out and I’m down to 15? Issue is if Teddy is out I’m really down to 14 as I expect Hammer to score less than 10 against the Storm.
The way I see it is that Teddy out gives me even more reason to hold trades. 96% of the top 500 have Teddy and 98% have Ponga and I doubt many if any can field 17 with both out plus the ones with Pap out. So they either burn a trade, of which half these teams probably don't have, or they're in the exact same position as me.
Trading this week gives me ~30 points if its a 18-21 player out for a random WFB/CTR or I trade out Pap and gain ~40-50 points this week and maybe a few more in the last couple. Losing Cleary or Haas etc for 2 weeks is closer to 50 or 60 points as an upgrade on Siro. Or McIntyre gets dropped and I lose another WFB/CTR and I'm down 30-40 points a round if I can't trade.
I think its close but trading gives me a small points boost with some risk but holding averts most of that risk with potential for even bigger gains in the last round or 2.
