    What would you do with this team?

    Cook
    Haas, Lawrie, Cheese
    Fifita, Hosking
    Cleary, SJ
    Manu, Bird
    Sloan, Bula, Miller

    Horse, Tatola, Boyd, Preston

    Lemuelu, Ford, IKatoa, Couchman


    17 trades, 46k ITB

    Thinking I'll hold trades unless Oloapu starts - then I'd probably downgrade Couchman.

    Think as above I can hold Cook to 13 just I'm case he misses origin. Ford I think I'm happy to hold through to 13 as well. Sloan I'd like to trade, but don't really like any of the options in my price range (<414k).  Anything I'm missing?

    This season Mattnz traded in Kiraz after he scored 90. He has not scored within 40 points of that since. He traded in Samoa after he scored 78. He has not scored within 30 points of that since.

    Does this condemn Smith to weeks of scores in 20s and 30s? Only time will tell

    Nah cause he's in career best form.

    I’m not touching Billy Smith been burnt by him twice before.

    On Te Whare if you listen to Wayne presser it doesn’t fill me with much confidence he will be in the team for long. Wayne often looks to manage young blokes too. Aitken and Brenko if both fit I think play over Te Whare just what my gut says.

    No idea if I should be prepping this week for the coming bye and origin period or just bank 3 trades. Death wobble incoming.

    Doesn’t play 13 but seems to have found some consistency in minutes and plays rounds 14 - 16.
    His scoring is metronomic so he really just needs to keep the minutes. Makes around 125k if he maintains 55’s.

    Does Fanhub give extra bonus points if you own Twal when he scores his first try?

    I doubt Billy Smith is even going to be the highest-scoring centre called Smith in his price range.

    Put your team up mate, think you need at least 10

    So can be done in a R13 trade week, but might need to move some funds around before hand as some prep

    Does Couchamn down to Oloapu give you enough to upgrade Sloan to Garrick or Drinkwater?

    I feel like should he ever score a try it won't be a 3 tackle bust line break crash play but more likely to be a kick deflection off 3 different players which ends up falling into his lap. Just so that he can maintain his always consistent scoring and not go huge even with a try.

    Honestly I think Cook's gotta go. His BE is high enough that it's basically now or never in terms of selling him, either do it now or hold for a long time.

    The problem with Cook (and also Murray) is that he's not getting the base that he was getting last year because his team is destroying everything in front of them, and the attack that's destroying these teams isn't going through him (at least not in a Fantasy-relevant sense), thus meaning that Cook is getting both lower base and less attack because all the tries, line breaks and assists are going to the guys out wide (mostly Latrell Mitchell and Cody Walker).

    Souths' draw is also very soft to basically the end of the season, their next 5 are the Tigers, Eels, Raiders (Origin affected), Titans and Dragons. They've played Melbourne and Penrith twice already, and don't have the Dolphins again either.

    TLDR: Cook's team is too good and he's not getting base, nor is he getting attack from that good team, so unless you think that will change, sell immediately

    Well, he too has had individual games where he's scored 60+ and looked the goods.
