    ROUND 14

    HOK: Brailey
    MID: Harris (c), Thompson, Watson
    EDG: Fifita, Matterson
    HLF: Moses, Johnson
    CTR: Manu, Bird
    WFB: Hynes, Tedesco, Walsh

    INT: Hunt, Peachey, Harawira-Naera, Gamble
    EMG: Momirovski, Schuster, Walsh, Cleary

    $25k ITB / 10 trades left

    Trade OUT: Fogarty, Starling
    Trade IN: Johnson, Harawira-Naera

    Score: 849 / Rank: 1763

    Notes:
    - Played with 16 this week with Tedesco out and a very small drop in rank.
    - The trades… Fogarty to Johnson was looking great right up until the 40th minute of Fogarty’s game where he went from around 18 points to 90 at full time. Hurts. Should’ve kept him but was losing patience with his string of 30s in his scoring history. Just shows that patience with ‘keepers’ can be pivotal though. Harawira-Naera was going okay then went off for a HIA - should come right.
    - Next week welcoming back Walsh and Cleary to the fold.
    - Likely saying goodbye to Momirovski to a cash out (likely Verrills) then other trades are up in the air.

    Targets: Verrills, Round 17 guns

    ROUND 15

    HOK: Brailey
    MID: Harris (vc), Thompson, Watson
    EDG: Fifita, Harawira-Naera
    HLF: Cleary (c), Reynolds
    CTR: Averillo, Bird
    WFB: Hynes, Tedesco, Walsh

    INT: Hunt, Johnson, Moses, Schuster
    EMG: Gamble, Manu, Peachey, Verrills

    $88k ITB / 7 trades left

    Trade OUT: Laurie, Momirovski, Matterson
    Trade IN: Reynolds, Averillo, Verrills

    Score: 1098 / Rank: 2052

    Notes:
    - I keep fiddling with my trades so want to get this in early this week which might help me stop.
    - Trades are pretty much finished Round 13 players to Round 17 players. Reynolds and Averillo as keeper guns (Reynolds HIA first up didn't help) and Verrills as a cash out.
    - May need to adjust my trades if Tedesco is ruled out.
    - Currently 10 players for Round 17.
    - Only seven trades left so need to plan them out carefully.
    - Thought I was on track for a good score, but then Trbojevic happened... then my ranking just tanked. Would have such a different year if I picked him up way back - but never trusted his fitness after burning me in both 2019 and 2020.
    - Few other points: Brailey bad score again - last 5 average less than 44 and he will drop over 150k in the last month. Probably should've jumped off sooner but wanted to see if he could bounce back and so far he hasn't produced. Will likely flick depending on who I can afford. Reynolds got a HIA, Thompson got binned, and Watson went to fullback but all should be fine.
    - Bit of a break now until the next NRL round so plenty of time to think.

    Targets: A gun MID, Round 17 players, a cash out

    Trade plan:
    - Have split my squad as keepers (green) and trade out options (orange). So with 7 trades left.. in no particular order this is my plan

    Trade 1 - Gamble > cash out once he peaks. Hopefully plays in Round 16 for another rise then out in 17. Either to a base Round 17 player, or to a WFB ideally. Not keen on spending $350k on Simonsson this round - rather another option to bank more cash.
    Trade 2 - Hynes to a WFB gun. Ideally he still keeps a starting spot for another week or two so the prices adjust with Papenhuyzen. Ponga, Mitchell and Trbojevic also options post Origin. At Hynes’ price and cash in the bank can do this in 1 trade.
    Trade 3 - Upgrade an orange player to a gun, preferably a MID for Round 17
    Trade 4 - Upgrade an orange player to a gun, probably post Origin. Options will become clearer post Origin but should be able to afford almost anyone. Which orange player goes out depends on form, injuries, suspension, depth.
    Trade 5 - For injury, suspension or a luxury trade
    Trade 6 - For injury, suspension or a luxury trade
    Trade 7 - For injury, suspension or a luxury trade

    ROUND 16

    HOK: Hunt
    MID: Harris (c), Papali'i, Thompson
    EDG: Fifita (vc), Harawira-Naera
    HLF: Moses, Johnson
    CTR: Averillo, Bird
    WFB: Trbojevic, Hynes, Tedesco

    INT: Reynolds, Brailey, Watson, Peachey
    EMG: Manu, Gamble, Verrills, Walsh

    $360k ITB / 5 trades left

    Trade OUT: Cleary, Schuster
    Trade IN: Papali'i, Trbojevic

    Score: 965 / Rank: 1793

    Notes:
    - That was... interesting. Somehow gained ranks despite a few blunders this week. Tohu captain only got 18 thanks to a HIA/injury. Any other option would've been a huge swing - but I guess a lot of people also chose Tohu.
    - Peachey only got 20 minutes and scored 4 points which is annoying. Had the option of playing Gamble over him (52...) but didn't think Peachey would get such little minutes, assumed he'd get his standard 50ish minutes off the bench and score 45-50 like usual. Guess not!
    - Some recent trades looking kind of mud at the moment. Reynolds been very average, and Thompson hasn't hit 50 since I got him in (could've Jackson instead - hindsight).
    - At least the trade this week went great - guns being guns.
    - Have the following players for Round 17 at the moment: Harris, Thompson, Harawira-Naera, Johnson, Averillo, Reynolds, Manu, Verrills, Walsh. A few of them have question marks about fitness so a lower number than I wanted. Should have gone harder at Round 13 - but hindsight, no one would know about the injuries affecting this round.

    Targets: Maybe a Round 17 MID (Jackson, Lodge or Fonua-Blake) or just save for trades from Round 18 for final guns.

    ROUND 17

    HOK: Hunt
    MID: Harris, Papali'i, Thompson
    EDG: Fifita, Harawira-Naera
    HLF: Moses, Johnson (c)
    CTR: Averillo (vc), Manu
    WFB: Trbojevic, Hynes, Tedesco

    INT: Reynolds, Brailey, Walsh, Verrills
    EMG: Bird, Gamble, Peachey, Watson

    $360k ITB / 5 trades left

    Trade OUT: -
    Trade IN: -

    Score: 461 / Rank: 1102

    Notes:
    - 8 players this week for a decent rank jump.
    - Could've done Harris out to a Round 17 MID like Fonua-Blake, Taumalolo or Jackson and gained some more ranks but wanted to wait for big guns in Haas and Murray. May backfire in the long run if they don't keep their average up for the rest of the year.
    - Round 18 will be interesting post Origin with a bunch of restings likely to happen. Hopefully able to field a 17.

    Targets: Haas, Murray, Crichton, Ponga

    ROUND 18

    HOK: Hunt
    MID: Papali'i (vc), Harris, Thompson
    EDG: Fifita (c), Harawira-Naera
    HLF: Johnson, Reynolds
    CTR: Averillo, Manu
    WFB: Ponga, Hynes, Walsh

    INT: Watson, Brailey, Bird, Gamble
    EMG: Verrills, Trbojevic, Tedesco, Moses

    $156k ITB / 4 trades left

    Trade OUT: Peachey
    Trade IN: Ponga

    Score: 825 / Rank: 1547

    Notes:
    - Absolute shit fire of a week.
    - Several underperformers who are putting their hand up to be traded out: Hunt, Thompson, Johnson, Reynolds. Will probably keep most of them, but one of them is likely going to go this week.
    - Held Harris and he got named which was nice. Then he does his ACL which is unfortunate and he scores 3 points and will drop around 90k. He is a straight out which hurts a lot.
    - Traded in Ponga this week due to both Trbojevic and Tedesco being out which meant I needed a WFB to field 17. Original plan was Peachey to Haas before team lists, but went with Ponga to get 17 players. Turns out this was the wrong play (due to bad luck) and Ponga went off with a HIA and didn't return for 8 points. He will now drop a ton of cash which is another huge advantage for other coaches.
    - Just a shit week.

    Targets: Haas, Murray, Mahoney, Crichton

    ROUND 19

    HOK: Hunt
    MID: Papali'i, Haas, Thompson
    EDG: Fifita (vc), Harawira-Naera
    HLF: Johnson, Hynes
    CTR: Manu, Bird
    WFB: Trbojevic (c), Tedesco, Ponga

    INT: Watson, Brailey, Walsh, Reynolds
    EMG: Gamble, Averillo, Verrills, Moses

    $123k ITB / 3 trades left

    Trade OUT: Harris
    Trade IN: Haas

    Score: 1197 / Rank: 1251

    Notes:
    - Mostly positive and a ranks bump. A lot of similarity across teams now so harder to gain ranks.
    - Downers included: Walsh (but everyone has him), Ponga (shit buy so far), and Johnson who got a hammy injury. He'll need to be traded out.
    - Haas a great first up performance along with Fifita. Captain Trbojevic went alright but didn't banner up.
    - Cleary looks doubtful so probably missing him for the year. Can get Cherry-Evans but will require a cash down. Otherwise can go Johnson straight to another gun within 100k like Cook or Mahoney.

    Targets: Mahoney, Cook, Cherry-Evans

    ROUND 20

    HOK: Hunt
    MID: Haas (c), Papali'i, Radley
    EDG: Fifita, Harawira-Naera
    HLF: Cherry-Evans (vc), Gamble
    CTR: Manu, Averillo
    WFB: Trbojevic, Tedesco, Ponga

    INT: Watson, Walsh, Reynolds, Brailey
    EMG: Verrills, Bird, Moses, Thompson

    $26k ITB / 1 trade left

    Trade OUT: Johnson, Hynes
    Trade IN: Cherry-Evans, Radley

    Score: 1018 / Rank: 1014

    Notes:
    - Had 17 players this week so did above average and gained some ranks. Peaked at about rank 600 mid-week until the later captain options kicked in. Haas was serviceable but Trbojevic just went crazy.
    - Trades were done to basically get in Cherry-Evans as the premium option and forgoing Cleary - he's just gone for too long and the uncertainty is something I don't want to deal with. Johnson injured so an easy out, and Hynes was the only option at his price to trade out to afford Cherry-Evans. Was planning to get him out at some point anyway, just lucky this week he got his reduced minutes. The second trade I could afford anyone up to $555k - so my options were between Radley, Mitchell and Rapana. Landed on Radley due to his very strong last 3 average of over 60 and playing 70-80 minutes in that period as well. Of course, this week he crashed back down and got reduced minutes and scoring. Mitchell then went boom with a 90 plus. That's fantasy I guess - but I already had five players that could cover WFB as well so didn't feel I needed another one - but only had 4 MID before getting in Radley.
    - Only 1 trade left, and Hunt is out for a month so he is out. Just need to decide who to get to replace him. Either a gun HOK or a gun MID.

    Targets: Mahoney, Cook, Crichton, Murray

    ROUND 21

    HOK: Brailey
    MID: Haas (vc), Papali'i (c), Murray
    EDG: Fifita, Bird
    HLF: Cherry-Evans, Moses
    CTR: Manu, Averillo
    WFB: Trbojevic, Tedesco, Ponga

    INT: Reynolds, Walsh, Gamble, Radley
    EMG: Harawira-Naera, Verrills, Watson, Thompson

    $38k ITB / 0 trades left

    Trade OUT: Hunt
    Trade IN: Murray

    Score: 1069 / Rank: 696

    Notes:
    - Positive week and moving in the right direction. Hopefully can finish in the top 500 for the year. I'm out of trades though so just need some good luck.
    - Captain landed on Papali'i this week which seemed about par, no one really performed above expectation. Also looped in Verrills over Watson which was handy.
    - Last trade was spent on Hunt out to Murray who had a strong first up performance.
    - Next week should welcome back Brailey but the rest of the team should stay the same. Thompson will be welcomed back in Round 23.

    ROUND 22

    HOK: Brailey
    MID: Haas (vc), Papali'i, Watson
    EDG: Fifita, Murray
    HLF: Cherry-Evans, Moses
    CTR: Manu, Averillo
    WFB: Trbojevic (c), Tedesco, Ponga

    INT: Reynolds, Walsh, Gamble, Bird
    EMG: Harawira-Naera, Verrills, Radley, Thompson

    $38k ITB / 0 trades left

    Score: 901 / Rank: 904

    Notes:
    - The slide starts now it seems. Under par score and dropped a few hundred ranks.
    - Also tallied up a number of red dots and no trades to sort them out. This week looks like Gamble, Radley, Averillo, Harawira-Naera and Trbojevic on the sidelines so will be playing with 16.
    - Need one of them to return sooner rather than later otherwise I will drop out of the top 1000.

    ROUND 23

    HOK: Brailey
    MID: Haas (vc), Papali'i, Thompson
    EDG: Fifita, Murray
    HLF: Cherry-Evans (c), Moses
    CTR: Manu, Bird
    WFB: Tedesco, Ponga, Walsh

    INT: Reynolds, Watson, Verrills, Averillo
    EMG: Harawira-Naera, Gamble, Radley, Trbojevic

    $38k ITB / 0 trades left

    Score: 975 / Rank: 876

    Notes:
    - Played with 16 this week but somehow gained some ranks - I'll take that.
    - Averillo and Trbojevic should be back next round so that'll help, especially with Thompson staring down another suspension.
    - Just hoping to stay in the top 1000 at this point. Having no Cleary is kind of scary though, hoping he gets rested in the final round which will help me out.

    ROUND 24

    HOK: Brailey
    MID: Haas (vc), Papali'i, Watson
    EDG: Murray, Fifita
    HLF: Cherry-Evans, Moses
    CTR: Manu, Bird
    WFB: Trbojevic (c), Tedesco, Walsh

    $38k ITB / 0 trades left

    Score: 1038 / Rank: 773

    Notes:
    - Again played with 16 due to Averillo being an out, but still gained ranks which is nice.
    - Next round will see some carnage and I'll barely field a team. Those out marked in red, and potential outs in orange. Hopefully can stay in the top 1000 by the time the season ends!

    ROUND 25

    HOK: Brailey
    MID: Haas (vc), Papali'i, Thompson
    EDG: Murray, Fifita
    HLF: Cherry-Evans, Moses

    Score: 835 / Rank: 1323

    Notes:
    - 11 players this week, so a lot of red dots and a ranks tumble.
    - Ended on 1323 which isn't too bad all things considering. Ran out of trades pretty early and ran home on fumes, just unfortunate with a lot of suspensions and restings in the final few rounds.
    - Made some good decisions and bad decisions throughout the year and will reflect on this team tracker when I start planning for next season.
