    @Welshy Lock that in I reckon, never a bad time to get Yeo. MID is an absolute wasteland and he's probably most consistent player in the game. Perfect byes too for an Origin player, that's why I got on him RD14.

    Does this mean you still get Hynes prior to RD19?

    @Welshy Hynes should be bottomed out after this week, waiting a week definitely not a bad play if you have 17 green dots. Fa'alogo has been switched to the run on side cheer

    My team for the week:

    JMK
    Yeo Plath Fainu
    Aitken Blore
    Hynes Galvin
    Drinkwater Weekes Tedesco
    Hands Matto Sharpe Fa'alogo
    Fifita Latrell Garrick Wighton

    That bench makes for some miserable reading Laugh 3

    Ended up fiddling around too much and missed Hynes in and stuck with Aitken Cappo

    Not a world ender but frustrating

    Currently on Talau - Yeo with 1 trade but have some time to debate that idea

    @Welshy Worked out a masterstroke for you! Talau > Yeo in a single trade is huge.

    Round 17

    Round Score: 761
    Overall Rank: 1,002nd

    Trades

    Twal > Matterson
    Carrigan > Hynes
    ITB: 50k

    Starting 17

    JMK (12) - Killed any hope of holding ground this week in the rankings, likely going to be a trade if out long term
    Yeo (47) - Will take a 47 after starting on the bench
    Plath (65) - Continues to score well, glad I picked him up when I did in a tough MID position  
    Matterson (46) - Big risk play but his offloads meant he got a respectable score, if he can average 45+ and stay fit I will be happy
    Aitken (57) - Got some kind updates, look forward to the time I can lock him into CTR position rather than EDG
    Blore (45) - Looked like he did his knee before Half Time so will take the score but pretty underwhelming after scoring a try
    Hynes (c) (108) - FOMO meant I went early, his price going to keep plummeting and he looked poor in real life
    Galvin (44) - Respectable score in a team that didn't score until the 79th minute
    Kiraz (34) - It's clear he isn't a full back, think I will be looking to upgrade once we get the extra trades
    Iro (38) - Still averaging 40+ for a centre but likes to avoid the big attacking plays
    Drinkwater (24) - Stinkwater is back, such a stupid play getting sin binned, another poor POD score
    Tedesco (75) - Glad I picked him up last week, the only really shining light this week along with Plath
    Fa'alogo (36) - Pretty sure he was on 32 at HT so pretty underwhelming in the end, hoping he plays this week against the Tigers
    Hands (21) - Too many missed tackles and lost a chunk of minutes to Martha
    Fainu (39) - Similar to Galvin I will take his score in a side that got beaten convincingly
    Sharpe (23) - Dud score but made another 40k, need Ponga to stay away for at least another 2 weeks
    Weekes (47) - Had a shocker of a performance but saved his score with a brilliant try, another that will be going RD20

    EMG

    Garrick (DNP)
    Mitchell (DNP)
    Wighton (DNP)  
    Fifita (DNP)

    Summary

    More rank loses again this week and no more trades for 2 weeks. Two of my bigger pods Drinkwater and JMK absolutely shitting the bed.

    Ended up grabbing Hynes so I had a solid captaincy option the next 3 weeks before we get the extra trades but it's going to be the wrong call unless he gets a banner in the next 2 weeks. Going off his real life performance I think the chances of that happening are very slim. 3 players on the bye this week, Hands will slot in for JMK although he is looking like he will need to be traded.

    With me only have 8 trades I am going to use 4 for upgrades and save 4 for injury. I will need to work out which 4 need to go, currently got too many WFB's so it should be 4 of the following:

    Kiraz - more than likely stays in the team as he is averaging 47 and has good job security
    Fa'alogo - if he can find a way to stay in the Storm team then again there is a good chance he sticks around
    Weekes - definitely going as soon as RD20 comes, has managed to save his scores too many times with freak plays
    Sharpe - will want to cash him out once he becomes a red dot, hoping for 2 more weeks of cash gen before then
    Garrick - worried he ends up on the wing which would make him a trade, if he stays at centre or moves to full back I will hold
    Hands - shouldn't miss 8 tackles every week and is my HOK cover but good might be have to go in RD20 with 4 on the bye
    JMK - will depend on how serious his injury is but doesn't sound promising, there aren't really any standout hookers to pick up

    From the lists I think Weekes and Sharpe are 100% sells and the others will have to see how it plays out. Weekes and Sharpe will go for a gun MID and cash out, Watson on the menu?

    JMK will have to go for a HOK if needed, interesting to see who plays hooker for the Dolphins if he it out long term, that could be a nice cash down.

    Then the above trades will hopefully leave enough cash in the bank to upgrade Kiraz/Garrick/Fa'alogo straight to Cleary. That's my rough plan, with the way this season has played out I am pretty sure it will all go horribly. Team for this week is pretty gross:

    Hands
    Fainu Yeo Matto
    Fifita Blore
    Hynes Galvin
    Kiraz Iro
    Drinky Latrell Teddy
    Fa'alogo Wighton Weekes Sharpe Garrick - 4 of the 5 here, couple of loops set up
    JMK Aitken Plath

    Hynes performance last week hasn't filled me with confidence so think I may take a punt on a POD captain, thanks for reading. Words of encouragement welcomed because last few weeks have been rough.

    If you're hanging around the top 1,000, you're doing better than most this year. 17 this week and 12 next week should allow you to gain ranks too.

    No point in planning too much for round 20 yet, but fingers crossed your cows make you a bit more cash between now and then.

    @Jele Thanks mate, I appreciate your efforts. I think having 12 next week is pretty optimistic, I think it'll be more like 10 with Fifita/Sharpe/JMK all unlikely.

    Round 18

    Round Score: 978
    Overall Rank: 876th

    Trades
    ITB: 50k

    Starting 17

    Hands (28) - Too many missed tackles to get any decent score
    Yeo (59) - So consistent, glad he’s in my team 
    Fainu (38) - Will take that score in a team that got thumped
    Matterson (53) - If he can repeat that score every week I’ll be more than happy 
    Fifita (56) - Solid score and glad he missed Origin 
    Blore (33) - Dud, wish he wasn’t in my team 
    Hynes (52) - My worst trade ever playing this game. I had been so set on waiting on RD21 as well
    Galvin (56) - Continues to churn out good scores without a huge KM base 
    Kiraz (52) - Will be a keeper now so need to hope he stays on the right wing 
    Iro (42) - Another +40 score 
    Drinkwater (54) - Great score, still not confident in him every week 
    Tedesco (97) - Been a brilliant pick up these last 3 weeks 
    Mitchell (c) (140) - Was really happy with the 80 at FT, scores found a way to dud him 10 points lol
    Fa’alogo (36) - Good score to say he only played half the game. Need him to start or he’s a trade 
    Wighton (67) - Brilliant score, about time!
    Garrick (69) - Glad I held him after the HIA game, absolute gun for a pure CTR
    Weekes (46) - Once again saves his score with a huge play but he is going to have some really low scores  

    EMG

    Sharpe (11)
    JMK (DNP)
    Aitken (DNP)  
    Plath (DNP)

    Summary

    So the Hynes trade massively backfired. Lost a boat load of cash, reduces my RD19 numbers and another trade burnt. Looking forward to this season being over. 

    No trades so not much to say. 

    Once we get the 8 trades I’ll have to work out who goes out of Latrell, JMK, Hynes, Fa’alogo, Sharpe, Hands, Weekes and whoever else gets injured…

    11 players this week so will no doubt fall out of the top 1k. Will have to learn from this for next year, burning trades to field a full team during Origin isn’t worth it. The 11 shitto’s are as follows:

    Hands
    Matto Plath Fainu
    Fifita Aitken
    Galvin Wighton
    Iro Garrick
    Sharpe

    Fucking sucks about Hynes mate. It was tough enough for me to resist grabbing him the past couple of weeks (and I was switched off from footy, besides having Galvin/Brown), but for you having an open half spot Rd 19, there's no way I wouldn't have grabbed him too. I know you were looking at Nikora, so just makes it extra brutal in points/trades/cash in hindsight, but in normal circumstances, Hynes scoring his average and not getting injured, it was the right call.

    Hopefully get through Rd 20 without more injuries.. fucking laundry list with Latrell, JMK and Hynes already Evil or Very Mad

    Hey mate I know the feeling being over the season too but chin up mate you’re still around the top 1k mark you should be proud of that. Some like me usually top 1k are languishing at the 7-8 mark which is shit compared to you. The carnage is jist bonkas this year mate next level.


    Out of that list I think obviously sell the top guys you have too. Maybe not a total disaster if you hold Weekes and Hands either. But sadly I think Trell, JMK, Hynes, Fa’alogo and Sharpe have to go then hold 3 trades for injuries mate.

    In previous years your strategy has been fine mate just unlucky with all these injuries. 

    Do not give up mate we will both ride it out.
