    Do you? Because I need a centre also.
    Anybody else want to talk about centres for the next 20-30 pages?

    How many players are people planning on having this bye round?

    Currently i have about 7/8 depending on SOO selections.

    Watson, Braily, JFH, Ipap, TPJ, Moses, Bird, Laurie.

    All of them solid Fantasy players, might be a bit slim. IM not rushing anyone else in at this stage. Ive been burnt before buying Sub Gun players for byes too early and them going down. Sucks heaps. Likely to just save trades, bulk milking before the round and get in players for the bye focusing more on those that are likley to make money than bulk points to focus on the run home rather than a single week.

    I will try to get 15 to 17 and then build my final team and probably disregard the second bye

    I haven't planned far enough ahead. Are the likely candidates for final 17, more likley to play in the first bye or second?

    I mean, All teh decent players seem to be playing SOO. So doesn't matter either way. I dont want to burn trades on having two good bye rounds. Id sooner just have a shit hot team for 24 rounds. But, i dont want to loose track of the pack. Currently ranked just outside the top 500.

    Haha I’m ranked 12,000 ish so don’t take any of my advice at all. You do you

    I'll have 17 players for round13... will probably have 9 or so for round17. ranked 3311 
    it will be tight trade wise, and I may not get all the guns on my wishlist for my final 17, but I have a decent scoring 17 already, so I'm not too worried about losing too many ranks in the endgame.

    Sorry I meant after round 12. How does it look despite of that? Don’t really want to play with 16 two weeks running

    It's tough, six red dots makes it difficult. I understand the Hynes pick, I don't really love it personally. Given you are playing Walsh anyway and you are thinking Koro next week, why not Pappy/Niu to Moses/Koro? Play Walsh at FB and hope a better cheapie pops up next week for Simpkin, most of the potential cheapies this week Honeysett described aptly last night.

    I think I'm going to trade him in. I'm in two minds, could go Simpkin to Kelly but if I trade Stefan I can get Manu. Manu probably a better option, but Stefan probably a better option to hold over Simpkin.

    I do really like Kelly though.

    Simpkin to CHN for 50k more seems like an easy trade. I'm struggling with it though, think it's because of Sticky more than anything else.

    Probably half way between the two. I think with this format, it's been shown that you really need a solid 19 to cover for one week injuries and suspensions and at least a couple/few for the run home. It's where I fell down last year, had a strong 17 but never got play them, there was always someone out.

    Does someone want to talk me out of bringing in Mbye? Have Bird and Peachey like many of you and rather than going expensive and having a 500k player sitting on the sidelines from round 14 onwards I think id rather pay 300k for WFB/CTR cover i can stash in my EMG until needed.

    Stil also tempted to just play with 16.

    Any one want to make bets on how long before Aaron Schoupp gets dropped?

    Can he make it to R17?

    Seems like most are against having Peach in the 14-17 with two decent centres. I get why but I don't think it's the worse option and your coverage is covered.

    MBye could go back to the bench at anytime, especially if Doueihi goes back to the halves and Roberts comes back.

    Another hypothetical, is Papenhuyzen even a guarantee for Origin?

    He offers little utility value, would have played pretty much one game in the last month and a half going into it.

    I'm reluctant to trade him now I've thought he could suit up for R13.

    Who do they play for? What's their job security like? Haven't heard of them so assume neither are origin bound.
    Can't find them in the system, are either of them DPP? Will they be added at base price?
