    TU: Use trades to maximise bye round points.
    TD: Only use trades to aim for final 17 players.

    Assuming it had to be one of the other, not a combination of the two.

    Issue with trading for byes is you run out of trades, and then for the run home you have no trades, and a team full of players who had a good schedule 6 weeks prior.

    If you can get final 17 players who also play byes, that is ideal, but better off concentrating on getting a good 17 together

    Losing 120 points in each bye round is not a major concern if you get an extra 30 points a week in the other weeks.

    Often as well as trades being an issue, cash is, which is why the discount gun shop comes in handy.

    Some discount guns will be attractive to everyone - eg Payne Haas will be on everyone's radar after origin, as currently $100k cheaper than David Fifita and arguably a better long term scoring prospect. Similarly Cameron Murray will be someone to target when he takes the field again, he'll be a bunch cheaper than other options of similar quality.

    But if you're low on cash there are often players who are only slightly worse than idea best 17 players, but available at a large discount. Just have to keep your eye out for those.
    Generally better to get 2 45 point players than 1 guy who averages 60 next to a 20 point nuffie who doesn't even play every week.

    Munster underwent scans on Monday afternoon on the groin problem he aggravated in the club’s shellacking of Parramatta at Suncorp Stadium on Sunday, which confirmed fears he would be sidelined for all three Origin games.

    It is understood Munster will need surgery at some point to repair the damage, which is related to an issue with his hip, but that would sideline him for up to three months and potentially end his season.

    As a result the Storm have elected to rest Munster for the next 8-10 weeks in the hope that he can return for the finals.

    Need a WFB this week that ideally plays the next two rounds since I’m likely to be one short in 13. 

    Manu, Kiraz, Drinky, Young - Big money options that play the next two weeks and are keepers so no need to worry about a trade out down the line. Hate paying big dollars at WFB

    Russell and Simmo - Cheap but it’s just typical that the Eels are basket cases so not sure if there is much room for money making or usefulness.

    Atkinson - Off a down game next to Hynes, but could be useful if Hynes plays Origin. 

    Koula - Ideal trade in but won’t help me at all next week so will be playing with 12 if I take this route. Hopefully his price and scoring makes up for this over the bye period while Turbo is crocked.

    Has to be Koula yeah?

    I agree with this take.....last year during the bye rounds I spunked a number of trades on low value options to low value options to 'fill a pace' in the 13.

    This wasn't my plan but was more a panic maneuver, the catalyst for which was a couple of my bye planning players got caught up in Fittlers novel selections or injured & I was pretty short

    This season I'm in a worse position for number of trades left but probably a better bye round position (tempting fate here)

    I won't be doing any sideways shifts for a 20-30 pointer to fill a bye round gap this year unless the case is absolutely compelling.

    Those extra trades I used over the byes last year could have got me close to a top 50 finish if they were available to cover restings/late season byes (not really I would have found another way to fuck it up  Very Happy )

    If you can afford Manu and rd14 not an issue I'd be inclined to take the opportunity

    Would be nice to hear some concrete Origin news this week. Turbo/Salmon to Manu/Hopgood is very tempting
