    I can't speak for others but I'm happy to wait a bye week at the cost of 30 or 40K for another look at him and another look at Ricky's plans.

    Extremely interested in him, but the week before his bye, when a lot of his teammates are also heavily owned… with Ricky Stuart as a coach?

    I’ll be surprised if he’s not more popular in a fortnight, but completely understand why he’s not this week.

    Nice work shedding all those Raiders though


    Ah! I forgot about Strange in the reserves. It was so nice punting Levi and Kris this week. Good for the soul

    It's the best! Love it.

    Particularly useful late in the season for most but my team is so shit I have to try and figure which of my shittos to play, loop and leave out so positional match up stats are amazingly helpful.

    Yeah super useful. Probably the section of the site I use most. Sorting by "value" is mega helpful to identify good buys that may not have been mentioned on here or I might have missed.

    Fantasy-wise Weekes was good.

    Regarding IRL, Weekes changed the whole look of the Raiders. Not sure Ricky likes that, but he probably doesn't have any other options. Maybe this bodes well for Weekes or maybe Ricky tells him to pull his head in and play to team planning and structures.

    I think the biggest threat to Weekes JS is the Raiders signing a journeyman halfback from another club that lands above him in the pecking order. I don't see it happening.

    Strange and Weekes were supposedly neck-and-neck to partner Fogarty at the start of the season so unless he bombs badly (he showed no creativity but no worse than a Tanah Boyd) he'll stick around.

    Can you loop between 2 players in the Friday games? In this case Weekes and Piakura?

    Happy Birthday, MS!  For this year's celebration I got you a You-are-ahead-of-me-on-the ladder.

    So yes, same as last year. Sorry, I'm about as creative as Kaeo Weekes.

    Yes if you can make the switch before the 2nd game starts. Might only have a 10 min window

    Given the Raiders form and choping and changing he's a Weekes to Weekes prospect.

    You could do it sooner though right? Like 60 mins into first game and your guy is on 70, you dont need to wait til full time to taje his score

    I'd say it's the way to do it.

    In the past I've make a tentative call when there's about 15 to go.
    It's never been with my player on 70 though, more like a borderline 40, and the second you decide you'll take their score, they turn into Joey Lussick and cease to stop scoring points but accumulate negatives.

    I guess it could be taken as proof that the fantasy Gods don't approve of the dark arts

    If I’ll only have 3 WFBs this week to play should I prioritize:

    TU: Garrick (long term keeper - get while price is good)
    TD: Armstrong (cash cow - get before price jumps)

    I guess what I’m really asking is - who will jump higher in cash this week?

    Think it's a combination of Raiders bye next week, lots of Raiders in teams already , and Weekes's prior scoring history (albeit for a different team in a different position ) and Armstrong/Atkinson also being popular cheapies
