    After Mulvys excellent post on LBs team tracker, thought I would put my plan for the year up just to show my thinking in case it helps someone. Take with a grain of salt as it's only my second year.

    Plan:


    General plan is to get enough in R17 to hold ground or maybe make up a few ranks, and then grab the top guns for the run home post R17.

    Current team after trades:

    15 trades, 51k ITB

    Brailey
    Smith, Watson, Crichton (C)
    CHN, Harris
    Croker, Fogarty
    Crichton, Bird
    Tedesco, Laurie, Hynes

    TPJ, Turpin, Moses, Walsh
    Jones, Roberts, Schuster, Cleary

    Trades Pre R17:
    Smith > Thompson + 20k - Once Grant is back Smith becomes less reliable and Thompson should be solid
    Watson > Taumalolo -50k - Looks like a bit of a gamble at the moment but think lolo comes right
    Laurie > Suaalii +300k - Cashout who plays when Teddy is out
    Hynes > Verills +450k - Cashout who could make some money. Will have trades in hand to cash him in if he does
    Turpin > SJ +0k - Expect Turpin to run out of steam and he probably isn't a keeper, to a 2nd tier gun who could kill it
    Jones > Cashout +100k - Cashout who plays R17 and gets me the coin for the post R17 trades

    R17 team:

    9 Trades, ~900k ITB, 10 playing

    Brailey
    Harris, Taumalolo, Thompson
    CHN, Schuster
    SJ, Croker
    Roberts, Bird
    Crichton
    , Suaalii, Walsh

    Verills, Cashout, Moses, Fogarty
    TPJ, Tedesco, Cleary, Crichton


    Trades Post R17:

    Croker > Fifita -330k - Think he will be a must have for the run home
    Moses > Trbojevic -200k
    Fogarty > Papenhuyzen -300k

    Depending on the timing of bringing in the Pre R17 cashouts, these 2 trades might happen before R17.

    Final team:

    6 trades, ~70k ITB

    Brailey
    Taumalolo, Harris, Thompson
    CHN, Fifita
    Cleary, SJ
    Crichton, Bird
    Tedesco, Papenhuyzen, Trbojevic

    Crichton, TPJ, Walsh, Schuster
    Verills, Roberts, Suaalii, Cashout

    Will ideally want a better 17th man, but will need a bit to go right for that to happen.

    If you trade both Laurie and Hynes, won't you be short on WFB ?

    You have Walsh to come in, but no one else?

    EDIT I guess you just make those WFB trade outs for rnd 17, not before hand.

    I'm still pretty gung ho on getting CHN for Alvaro but need funds for it. Are either of these worth it;

    BKelly - Jones (or anyone under 267K)
    Fog - (AKelly, Moylan, Dearden with change spare)

    or just go Fog to CHN?

    Or I just hold trades and run with Kelly and Leniu this week which I'd prefer not. Tricky week this one. Team is;

    Brailey
    Haas Watson Crichton
    IPap Matto
    Fog Moses
    Burton Peach
    Laurie Hynes Ted

    Bird BKelly Simo Leniu

    Alvaro Cleary Walsh Schuster

    Only 10K left.



    I'm actually thinking now if Leniu can somehow nab a 30, taking a punt and trading Verrills in for BKelly and CHN for Alvaro.  Can't afford any better guns and can't leave Alvaro in any longer.  If Leniu does shit, I might just get Jones and hope for a few weeks for him to be playable.  Anything I'm missing, any help appreciated.  Cheers.

    community team voted Alvaro->CHN pretty conclusively so that seems to be where the consensus lies. Personally not sold on CHN for his price. I’d be tempted to bank a couple of trades and reassess next week, or cash out one of Alvaro or Kelly to build a bank for some moves next week.

    Thanks lads.  My fear is Jele letting another good buy like CHN slip by.  Team value is low so I have to look for cut price options.  I'll see how my man Leniu goes first though.  Warming to Verrills now though.

    Yeah good eye mate, but that was the plan. Hynes probably can't wait until post R16 to trade but I think Laurie can.

    haha. guess it depends on trades in hand. Jones is two trades, because he'll be a trade out when Friz returns, but he should make some cash, assuming things go favourably for him until then.

    I got Jones last week as he seemed like the best option for short term cash grab. Probably the last one of those I can do.

    Verrills is someone you trade in and keep for the season (again, assuming he stays fit)

    I can trade Watson > Fifita
    Or Laurie and Leniu > Fifita and any one <$320k, who is the best cheap option to make a bit of cash over the next few weeks?

    Brailey
    Watson, Crichton, Haas
    Matterson, Harris
    Cleary, Hunt
    Peachey, Bird
    Turbo, Teddy, Hynes

    Laurie, Starling, A.Kelly, May
    Walsh, Leniu, Schuster, Roberts

    If you trade Laurie, you're playing with 16 (well, unless you bring in a wfb under 320 ie Simmo)

    Friday finally here. I should probably look at my team, and who to trade.

    I think just the Alvaro -> CHN mate. I'm making the same trade as you (again) and think we should bank the trade this time around.. 17 is a long time away. Jones is a big risk.

    I'd take SJ even if he was priced at 700. ARey will no doubt have a few good weeks, but can go through periods where everything runs through the left edge which ends with low scores

    That's the problem with the community team. Noone really focuses any further than the week ahead so you get a bunch of short term trades, like trading in the guy that scored well last week and has a low breakeven

    appreciate the FOMO on CHN. i just figure you can’t get them all.

    Full disclosure- i got Jones last week and plan to get Verrills as soon as he is named.

    Looking towards r17 there's not many players I want to get in. In fact I only have 6 planned trades to get to my final team and only 3 trades towards r17. So if all goes right will have 10 players for r17. Maybe 11 if a good bottom dollar player comes up so I can finally flick Talau.

    yeah, Camo prompted a longer term planning discussion a week or two ago but that quickly fell by the wayside. i might resurrect it in an effort to stimulate a bit of a strategic approach to the next six weeks or so (which is really the make or break part of the season now).
