A LONG POST LOOKING AT MY SQUAD AND TRADES
Or maybe posts.
Going to try and follow each squad position e.g. I had Haas and he became iPap. I think this might work better than just looking at trades in iso, or it could be a mess, will find out. Hoping writing this way, I learn stuff. I doubt anyone else is following the travails of the guy who came 4000th lol
Doing it in initial price order
Haas, R1-16: played 13, avg 57.5, 106k loss
iPap, R17-25: played 9, avg 62.4
Maybe the only premium player slot I got right. Only mistake with Haas was captaining Mahoney over him the first two weeks. Jumped off at R17/SoO3 - I think he was injured. Can't complain with the switch to iPap
Mahoney, R1-3: played 3, avg 44.3, 63k loss
Johnson, R4-7: played 4, avg 36.3, 3k loss
Tuilagi, R8-10: played 3, avg 35.7, 63k gain
Peoples, R11-15: played 1, scored 34, 45k gain
Kennedy, R16-20: played 5, avg 27.4, 93k gain
Burton, R21-25: played 5, avg 38.6
Cook v Mahoney is a shocker, cost points/trades/team value.
Johnson is a shocker - a bit of a silly punt (I could've got Cotter instead).
Tuilagi a 2nd time is a shocker.
Peoples as a cashout is a shocker.
Kennedy is ok I guess, until the shock send off
Burton just as he scores like shit again is a shocker.
Mitchell, R1-5: played 4, avg 34, 80k loss
Hynes, R6-25: played 18, avg 69.7
So I had Hynes, but then traded him to a suspended Mitchell to get 50ish from Crichton. My rationale at the time was they will both me 50-ish average players. Oops. Bad judgment. By R6 it was a $300k team value swing, plus all the points foregone. Definitely a season destroyer. Don't be cute next time is the lesson here.
Papenhuyzen, R1-9: played 9, avg 55, 120k gain
Turbo, R10-11: played 2, avg 28, 90k loss
Sexton, R12-15: played 4, avg 42, 94k gain
Hughes, R16-25: played 8, avg 46.3
Papy was a no brainer, until injured. It was Turbo v Burton, got that wrong. Then Sexton v Burton, albeit way more expensive Burton, and got that wrong. Hughes was ok I guess, thought never really had that massive fantasy game and missed a couple with injuries.
Burton, R1-6: played 6, avg 41.1, 6k loss
Cleary R7-20: played 11, avg 62.1, 149k loss
Munster R21-25: played 5, avg 67.2
In isolation Burton to Cleary is solid, but hindsight says I needed to find another way. Even more hindsight says if I'd had Hynes from the start I could've got Cleary in R6 for Latrell. Also more on Burton later. Cleary's average wrecked by scoring a 1. Munster a good replacement.
Uto, R1-2: played 2, avg 33.5, 15k loss
King, R3-16: played 14, avg 43.6, 285k gain
Cheese, R17-25: played 6, avg 52.2
I forgot Uto was a thing, if he gets fit he might be value again R1 next year. King was great, better late than never. Cheese ok - an enabler for other trades that averaged 50+. Could've done without the 3 week suspension
Aitken, R1-25: played 21, avg 47.5
Oh look I got something right from the start
So this is my 7 most expensive players, and I've made 14 trades, about half of them are early, before even bye round considerations. Lots of lost points and cash.
Rest of the team to follow.
