    For me, it's been:

    Moses, Piakura, Rapana, Luki injured (+ Tatola and Campbell this week).

    Cotric, Wong, Tupouniua, Chan dropped (+ Talagi this week).

    At some point this season I'd just like to make one (1) trade that isn't forced by injury or a player being dropped.

    Unrealistic expectations, I know.

    For me I've sold the following players

    R1: Moses + Kini (eventually injured and dropped but didn't know that at the time)
    R2: Haas + Luki (both injured)
    R3: Piakura + Wong (injured + dropped)
    R4: Burbo + Shitili (same as R1, not forced at the time but would have been later)
    R5: Chan + Flanagan

    So basically Flanno's my only genuine green dot that I've sold

    But when that happens then there's nowhere to place blame but on yourself

    That's only because Dom Young is suspended until next week.

    Once he's back, Suaalii is going back to centre

Reasonable to expect he might be more of a low 60's player than the mid to high 60's. For $50k less, SJ might be the better option this week (for those that have the luxury of opting for both).

    Or are people expecting a bounce back to the normal high 60's.

    I'm gonna bite the bullet and bring Hynes in for captaincy, even though Fog did his job the last 3 and I really don't need a half. Figure Hynes can near banner on any given week and go back-to-back and then all doubts are removed for awhile. Could keep waiting and hoping he'll be 850k in a couple of weeks, but then end up trading him in after he banners. I'm just hoping it doesn't screw up my squad balance with Fog, DBrown and Galvin already, but for captaincy it's hard to look past Hynes and hopefully a ~70 average.

    I'm more and more tempted by Best.

    Down 100k on his starting price and the Knights have a nice little run coming up.

    Origin is the only concern. Hard to know what way they go with so many options (Burton/Crichton/Staggs/Turbo/Trell/Lomax).

    Yea I'm super tempted as well. I have the money and the only other alternative options I'm really interested in are SJ or Hopgood. Like you, I don't need another half (Cleary, Galvin, Brown and now Foran) but his potential to go big could really close the distance on those at the top of the rankings. I also can't keep Captaining McInnes in Cleary's absence, and with players returning from injury, McInnes is unlikely to see big minutes going forward.

    If only the Knights didn't have a rd12 bye.

    Brailey, Marzhew, Best, Cogger all genuine options in addition to KPP and Ponga

    Most of us here are only joking, yeah. Pretty sad if you're actually sending emails about a missed stat.

    I mentioned last week, but i'm getting a few emails through my website about it, I guess people think I'm the official stats provider.. lol

    If you're running a healthy Emergency, then three players from the Knights is quite manageable.
    I just bought in Brailey (for Liddle) to go alongside KPP and Ponga.

    Both Egan and Cheese can easily average less than Lussick in a short period of time. Basically I think it's sideways and I'd only be upgrading Lussick to Robson or Grant at this stage

    That notice has been there a while, possibly it was after Grant didn't get his Try Assist as that seemed to cause a bit of a stir on the socials.
    I do like it when they post explanations of some of the contentious decisions on why they were/weren't given, although understand its probably too time consuming to do every week

    I'd hold Lussick at least until Eels bye if you have a few of them. Mid 40s average, so still ~70k value there.

    Egan and BSmith both have a tendency to break and paying 70-100k for pretty much the same average. Though I do wish I'd kept BSmith in my starting side Rd 1.
