    Seen a few nice rank rise stories over the last few days. So here are my ranks this year.

    Round 1: 35208
    Round 2: 38742
    Round 3: 37439
    Round 4: 18331
    Round 5: 17453
    Round 6: 15240
    Round 7: 17012
    Round 8: 9923
    Round 9: 3064
    Round 10: 2078

    Quite the jump over the last few weeks which has been pleasant, hoping to build on it heading into the byes in a few weeks

    Alamoti not the best plug and play option for Lemmy although against the Warriors could see a bump if JAC is back like he said.

    Niko a loop option usually so need to play in 17

    Same three out for me too, just don't want to see any other red dots in my team tomorrow that's when things could get really hairy.

    I reckon you wait another week bro, BE won't be an issue and it's another chance to see he can make it through a game.

    Unless you need to trade that is.

    100% this.
    Even if his BE is low, I'd think with the recent injuries it's worth holding off a week.

    Then the Warriors are on their bye, and hopefully, all he's set to go for a nice 60-pointer on the R13 major bye

    That's awesome

    17k into 2k in just 3 weeks is very impressive - keep doing what you're doing!

    I could do with a cashout and love a DPP with a negative BE as much as the next guy, but VTW is not without risk, given he's an injury fill-in and the Dolphins don't play for two weeks so there's no visibility on whether he stays in the team.

    I mean, he played great BUT the takeaways from Wayne's comments on him afterwards were:

    1. Yeah, he's an attacking weapon but has a lot to learn in defence. (unsaid: in reserve grade)

    2. He's the sort of personality who's a big game player and the bigger the occasion the better he'll be  (unsaid: this was his high point)

    3. He did a haka after the game? Good for him, I didn't know had the fitness to do that. (unsaid: he's a lump)

    Might have to take the risk on him as think I need an NPR cashout next week, but fgs don't pencil him into your starting back five.

    I can wait until next week to decide, no hurry.

    Managed to dodge quite a few of the under par picks so hoping to do some gun shopping over the next few weeks to get setup for the first bye

    Have you seen how much strapping tape is holding his knees together? Surely will be some stress involved.

    Will be holding Ford as long as he starts, glad the Warriors play early in the round.

    He somehow still managed 32 in 50mins, despite all his demerits he always finds a way to put up decent scores. Should hold price and be very handy for rd13 as currently my only edge for that round.

    Yeah, he was on 40 after 50 minutes before what until recently was a regulation tackle became a penalty and sin-binning.

    I tend to agree, but

    22 missed tackles, 3 errors, 3 penalties and a sin bin in the last 3 weeks = a negative stat line of just over -20 points average over that time.

    In some ways, I'm looking forward to getting rid; so I no longer get excited as he rides his way up to a 40 score, only to shed 10 points in a matter of minutes

    Put it this way... did you regret jumping off Nanai too early last year? I know I did. You can even take Origin out of the equation for Ford.

    He might be hard to hold if he's out this week along with all the Dolphins, but if he's playing can't see a good reason to sell.

    Sliding doors moment going Cotter and holding Loiero over picking Brown + JDB in R9

    Think with Milford threatening Niko/Katoa, Brown might need to be picked up this week

    Ford only a fine, so will stick around for me. Can't afford an upgrade unless trading an origin gun and Tatola/Luki aren't looking like buys yet.

    Yeah Milf killed Niko. He still has 1/2 price rises left, but definitely closing in on the block.
