You had a pretty poor first week or two of I remember correctly? Respect for pulling that comeback out. Well done
Round 1 I was 34k, deliberately tanked that week because I started with both Bird and Walsh. I had a great round 2 (34k to 10k), then a mediocre round 3 (10k to 8k), then a big one last week (8k to 3k).
I've gotten very lucky with my decisions on trades, I've basically nailed every single one except for buying Reynolds over Cook last week, and that hasn't even been that bad. I got rid of Cheese in round 1 for the Carty Party, got on Hammer that week as well, and started with both Preston and Ford so I didn't need to use a trade buying those two.
Compared to last year, I've really been able to be proactive with my trades rather than reactive, and have played a straight bat when it comes to captaincy (captained Cleary every week except for Hopgood round 3).
To cap it off, I might not even need to make any trades next week, as Sloan saved himself with some late junk and there don't seem to be any cheapie must-haves next week.
