    Yeah not really sure what to do. Thoughts on these trades?

    Boyd > Cleary
    NAS > Murray
    Preston > Piakura

    They don’t seem too crazy?

    I have no opinion on these. Laughing

    I will say, however, I have made my bed this week.

    I must confess that I absolutely love the fact that last week, we(well many of us) were all like, had he been named, let’s give Cleary look to see how he goes coming back from an injury, and this week it’s he is playing in a milestone game, against the Doggies, at home! Perish any thoughts of last week.

    Yes, one can find the word MENTAL in Eliminator.

    I think it's more just the extra security of the week off for the hammy. He was apparently good to go last week but obviously still some minor doubt. They were also away with an under strength squad so it lines up pretty nicely this week, must admit.

    My original plan was gonna be SJ + NAS to Murray + Cleary, but the more I think about it, the more selling SJ seems like fantasy suicide with his draw to come. So, operation avoid selling SJ is in full effect. Any thoughts on the following:

    Option 1:

    Manu -> Lomax (or Timoko/Graham et al, any centre in that price bracket)
    iPap -> Cleary (could also be Tohu, either or)
    NAS -> Murray

    4 trades for injuries, Hopgood my only MID/EDG cover.

    Option 2:

    NAS -> Cotter
    Manu -> Cleary

    5 trades for injuries. Means I have to play Kris at centre this week and in R26 when Penis has a bye, but going forward Penis and Lem would be my starting centres and I could push Robson or Cotter to 18th man. Could also trade iPap or Tohu to Cleary in this scenario, but that leaves me with the above issue of Hopgood being my only cover for 5 positions.

    Option 3:

    Robson -> Koro
    iPap -> Cleary
    NAS -> Murray

    4 trades for injuries. I reckon Koro can probably match Robson from here with a game in hand. Same MID/EDG issue.

    Option 4:

    SJ -> Cleary
    NAS -> Murray

    Stick with the original plan. Leaves me with better team balance. I've been stuck in the mid 3,000s for ages, hope that getting on Cleary ASAP and anti-Podding SJ helps.

    When I write it out like that, option 2 seems like the play as long as I can get away with Kris at centre during Lemuelu and Penisini's byes. Having 3 gun centres in Manu/Penis/Lem, plus Kris as cover, with Penis at 18th man is probably overkill.

    Flip a coin between CNK and Bula. Probably Bula against the Dragons.

    Righteo so I have made a plan. Need a cash out think I’ll punt on Colouqhun if he becomes a red dot so be it I have to risk it. Do not want Skelton I already have Preston and M. King although Preston might go to Murray in a week or 2.

    Plan is…

    Brimson to Colouqhun
    Matto to Cleary
    Robson to Grant

    Then should have enough to pivot from Bula to Garrick next week or week after. Watch me sell Matto and he probs scores 60 this week but I have 4 Eels and Matto hasn’t been as great as I thought…

    Would leave 5 trades and…

    Grant
    Haas Horse JDB
    Fifita Bateman
    Hynes Cleary
    Manu Penisini
    Edwards Ponga Bula

    SJ Hopgood Preston Lemu
    M. King Hands Kris Colouqhun


    Thoughts please?

    Think I’m C Cleary as well I’m going for it.

    VTW/Robson/Harris/Drinky to Cleary/Haas/Yeo/Murray

    Would you guys swap Matto in for Robson as the trade out or Hopgood instead of Harris to faciliate the trades?

    I'd swap Matto in for Robson as the trade out.

    @Rabbits21 you have cover for every position

    potential issue in R23 where Preston and King are both on the bye, and then R26 with Hopgood and Penisini

    Might even be worth trading Preston out that week (iPap currently cheaper, maybe Murray despite him still having a bye upcoming)

    Other than that, its not a big issue if Colouqhun becomes a red dot.

    If you're short on cash you could even trade Tedesco instead of Garrick for a bit more cash

    17th looks weak as the loop between Lem and Ming. I don’t see the point of 3 gun centres so pick one of Lem Penis Manu to flick and get a better player in that spot like DCE or Murray

    I can go Harris/Matto/VTW/Drinky to the 4 above mate.

    Risk jumping off Drinky in this insane form run (7 game avg of 68) but Yeo seems safer

    I'm jumping off too. Risky indeed, but it funds fun stuff. And he's a WFB in a purple patch which has to end eventually....

    Thanks mate appreciate it, if my team is set you reckon the last 4-5 rounds you can get away with only having 3 trades?

    I think on reflection, in Booze case getting rid of Drinky could backfire if he maintains current scoring, others around will keep so safer in numbers

    Getting rid of Gutho and Matto might be the way to go

    Yeah Booze has the cap to keep Drinky whereas others (me) need that money to finish their teams. 4 Eels means, yeah I'd be looking to get rid of a couple.

    Hey mate thanks for the feedback I’m aware of that but to get all the big guns I had to sacrifice a weaker 17th man I knew that but it is what it is. I can hopefully loop most weeks for my 17th man. My team value isn’t quite as high as lots of the top 100 guys in here mine is about 14.4-14.5 mil.

    Would be nice given I just picked him up in draft. Very Happy

    Not that I'm any chance of winning. But avoiding relegation would be nice.

    Even more true if you've picked up Tago/Edwards. Put's a line through Yeo pretty much, especially with Eels out last round as well.

    Gonna throw one of these up. Who would ypu rather have in your team from here on out?

    TU: Haas
    TD: Drinkwater

    My last trade in isolation is basically Drinkwater to Haas. Bula would replace Drinkwaters spot. Haas feels like a strong upgrade though slightly luxury.

      Current date/time is Sun Mar 03, 2024 5:15 pm
