    What an interesting week! Definitely going to separate the men from the boys, so to speak.
    Many of us are going to have to run with 16...so why not let it be your CTR. I've had some decent discussions here about running with 16 without a CTR. Don't rush to get in a CTR you aren't sold on. Run the empty spot in the weakest position.
    I'll be focusing on getting as many points as possible (while considering R13) and will address CTR next week. Hopefully be able to gain some ranks on those above that are also struggling.

    I've penciled in Munster & Fifita for Fogarty and IPap with 200k ITB. Would've gone Mahoney, but worried that Grant wont be back in time for Orgin.

    I do get a sneaky feeling that it will always be that next week job. With all of the carnage I may never get around to filling it.

    Momo was meant to fix that but it seems like I won’t be getting him back in a hurry. I’ll be putting myself in the boys camp

    Trading Fifita to CHN. Free up some cash and hopefully make some decent cash through the origin period. Then pick Fifita back up after origin. So far have no other urgent trades to make. Can field a full squad +1 so even have the luxury or looping Fuimaono and Walsh

    Double trading to play 17, and because Fifi and Grant is too much cash to hang on the pine.

    Looking for an edge like everyone else - oddly tempted by Curran despite no R13.

    Probably should just get Lucy or IPap tho

    Sorry dudes, I know the CTR talk gets a little tiresome, but I'm looking at someone under $419K to stop this endless fuck-around with centres. I've had Bird from the start, but the other position has been filled by Averillo, Niu, Hampton and Cini. Trading out the biggest dud of them all this week as I can't stand to look at him anywhere my team. Doesn't leave me much cash to play with, though, but that's cool. Don't want to spend a lot as my goal is Lomax in a few weeks. So, what I'm looking at goes a little like this;

    Brayden Musgrove - seems to be holding his position, but loses it when Edrick Lee returns? Is that who he's filling in for? Cheap as all fuck, but for good reason so very unappealing.

    Max Feagai - actually seems like an okay option, except he loses his spot when Pereira returns next wee? Or the week after? But either way, he's gone in a week or two?

    Tommy Talau - holy shit, didn't realise he was so cheap - 264K. What's his job security like? Surely he's likely to hold a spot somewhere in starting side? I kind of like this option, but am hesitant to pick another Tiger.

    Moses Mbye - didn't want to utter his name in this list, but what are the odds this reshuffle stays like this for a while? Even as poor as he is, playing 80mins in halves would surely be worth a punt for a CTR. Again, though, hesitant to pick another Tiger because it's a so volatile there.

    Seb Kris - scoring poorly after a strong start to the year, and drops out when Croker returns?

    Jesse Arthars - I actually like this kid as a player and would be happy to punt on him if I had any faith in his job security. But he's kind of in the same bundle as the Tigers for me. I'd be hesitant to take a punt on him for fear that he's only one poor game away from being dropped?

    Tyrone May - a couple of serviceable scores in recent weeks, but with the minutes he gets is he likely to keep hitting 30's?

    BJ - same as the Tigers above. Don't mind him based on potential, how far he is underpriced and what he can do... but job security again a big question mark.

    Nick Cotric - this is kind of where I've landed. Is it a terrible idea? Cons are he's scoring pretty poorly and he's in a horrendous team who don't look like winning or even scoring tries. But the biggest pro for me is his job security. He seems very unlikely to lose his spot and his floor seems okay enough for a CTR, to hope he jags an extra few points here and there to make him at least useable. He just seems like the least stressful option?

    And Cotric is 360K which is about where I want to stop looking - don't want to spend more than that.

    Burns can be a great player, but injury history too much of a worry for me, Hopoate too sub-par for extra dollars, Dugan's JS an issue now, and bloody Morgan Harper just out of my price bracket.

    So apologies for that, hombres. Hope none of you actually read that, but if you did, in my position - just wanting a serviceable CTR to play week in / week out, without having to worry to much about it, is Cotric the best of a pretty poor bunch?

    If I had to rank them, I think it'd be;

    1. Cotric
    2. Talau
    3. BJ

    Anyone have some hard commentary on this list? Do we see Talau's position in any threat? Wow, just saw he's scored a 1 & 7 on the wing in recent weeks, in 77 and 80min matches. Eek. So Cotric it is?

    @Teeth Eater

    Good write up of exactly what I am pondering.

    I don't trust Maguire so am not considering Mbye, he could shift to the bench before kick off this week and if you ask most Tigers fans he shouldn't be in the side at all (not even bench utility).

    Tempted by BJ at his price and with his potential, could also be motivated in a contract year. He has been dropped once already this year but I think his job security is ok for the next few weeks at least.

    Cotric definitely the safest albeit most uninspiring pick. Good js but those tb's have dried up and the dogs have a woeful attack.

    The other option would be to run 16 this week and see if a decent cheapie pops up next week. There are a couple of better centes with higher break evens who will be ripe for the picking over the next month or so.

    Hey guys, Im in search of a WFB replacement (albeit in the VSDT comp). What are the chances Gutho or Brimson play Origin? I wanna grab a round 13 playing guy and short list seems to be:

    Gutho (seems the most solid scorer out of the options and has a pretty good draw coming up, downside is his price and likelihood he will probably actually lose value even if he goes well)

    Brimson (seems to me he is probably one of the highest scoring alternaitves to gutho, at MUCH cheaper price, draw not too bad, but tough game this week).

    Sivo (big risk reward, but with the Eels having a nice draw, could be a big play!)

    None else is really jumping out at me.

    If I'm choosing between those its probably Gutho, only because I think Brimo is a pretty good shot at origin. I said this to start the season and with things like Morgan retiring, milf going back to ressies etc this season I think it even more likely as there is less competition for that utility role if he doesn't end up at say CTR (or wing if we push someone into ctr). If I didn't think that I'd probably choose Brimson because I prefer watching him play and he's cheap enough after a poor start its a gamble I'd be happy to take.

    Edit: Realised i didn't really address the point that Guth could be picked for origin too, but I think with the depth NSW has vs the depth QLD has one is naturally more likely than the other.

    I think I'll take the risk on Matterson. The extra cash will be handy.

    We should probably ban whinging if he goes down again.

    Good plan. Should work well.

    Also on the ban list: discussion of CTR, panic posting about the same two trades, blaming the badly injured for getting concussed, and Hugh Jackman.

    Sensuously.

    I'd put on some Chopin, have a glass of wine, light a few candles, slam a couple of red bulls, and then put them in height order.

    So, Matto, Lucy, Macca, Fog, Koro.

    But then I'd think about how soft their eyes were. And I'd go for a refreshing jog around the block, then order them by BEs.

    So, Matto, Koro, Macca, Lucy, Fog. Maybe? Don't know, haven't checked. Too busy jogging.

    Yeah cash will help for sure. I also need a WFB if Papi isn’t playing but they play last on Sunday.. might just cop 16 if he doesn’t
