    I think with May you need to consider the upside risk and the downside risk

    Upside risk is you are getting a cut price keeper for 574k.

    Downside risk he probably averages low 40s, which is about where where he is priced. This is still a very playable score and byes are favourable to hold right up until round 19

    Cut priced keepers are the guys that you cannot miss or it will be very costly. If everyone else pays 600k for a final 17 player where you have to pay 800k that takes a few trades and some great cash gen to make up for. I'd be surprised if any team that missed SJ last year ended up anywhere near the top 1000

    I feel like the upside risk is well worth possibly burning 2 trades on the downside risk

    I didn't get on to SJ until Round 17, $849k was top 200 at round 23 but ultimately ran out of trades and finished at 577. I still think about what could have been if I had jumped on him earlier. I put it down to being a long time warriors supporter with scars and burns.

    So if you miss a cut price keeper you can still have a nice season but you have to do it the hard way and at a disadvantage to everyone else.
    Top 2 season killers imo: missed cut price keepers and poor trade management.

    Anything else to add to the list?

    Anyone else having trouble with the website? It tells me to refresh every time I make a move, and the moves don't save. Nearly kept Kini in my WFB last week because it hadn't saved and I didn't notice.

I normally captain Ha'as but due to his injury he might not play this week. I also have Moses but he has had two bad weeks in a row. At this rate I might need to captain Lussick as he is a certain 60+ point player

    Spoiler:


    Captain Grant and VC Haas.

    Moses and Grant both have high ceilings, but Moses has a much lower floor, especially if he's still not goal kicking. Moses is far more likely to give you a 25 than Grant is.

    Captaining a back is not for me this time of year. I've captained Teddy before for 29 points. It's the opposite of fun.

    Did we get to the bottom of why Cook came off with 10 to go last week?

    Did he have an injury or was it #demetrioureasons?

    I voted the same and then realised we need a WFB to play 17, so I'm probably gonna have to cancel.

    * Changed to Lussick and Cobbo.

    For owners (and Haas himself) probably better if he doesn't play than if he takes the field but goes off after 15 minutes and can't continue
