    Complete overhaul of strategy this week. Going to try to pick players who score the most points, not the least.

    Being this close to the top is always above average temperatures. Really feeling the heat for sure.

    Strategically this is what needs to be done by everyone in the bottom half. The longer the comp goes the less teams playing, the less variation available to meet the cap so you can't catch up. People tend to try and spend all the cap or as close to, but very rarely is this the highest scoring team. My strategy is to ignore the cap and not try and get the most expensive players.

    The best possible team last round had quite a few PODs, so there is a good chance to make up ground if you pick the right players.
    - total score of 514, just shy of $4,000,000

    Cook 58
    Radley 74
    Fermor 63
    Moses 101
    Tuala 75
    Papy 70

    The hardest thing for me last week wasn't the cap, it was the 1 player per team restriction. Lots of teams had more than 1 player to pick from, and with many of the premium options in HLF or WFB it was tough settling on who to settle on there.
    Congrats to anyone who went for Moses over Cleary/DCE

    With only 2 games this week, teams will be more similar as there are less choices available. So going PODdy and praying may be required to catch up
