    Loop Surgess or Arrow with Martin this week?

    Thinking start Surgess and have a peek at Arrow. if Arrow sucks then give Martin a run (assuming Martin even plays)

    Hey guys, coming in to my GF this week with no trades Embarassed
    Wanted to see if someone could run the rule over my current setup.. Ill have a free look at MBye but want to also have the option of playing Lewis if Mbye scores garbage. If MBye does in fact score bad and Im down in my matchup I'll likely sub Martin out for Lewis.

    Theres also the Mcinnes factor (if he somehow doesn't play).

    Will this setup give me the most flexibility?

    With Liddle hanging around at 17 or 18. Wouldn't it be better to have Farah at 5 and Mbye at 6 so you get a look at both ? I'm no stoolpooling expert, just putting it out there.

    Liddle has been playing for weeks, and Farah is still good for 40+.

    I am more worried about Surgess/Arrow/Martin

    I think thats still a good shout as I assume Mcinnes plays. My opponent has farah and Im almost certain Farah will put up solid numbers but if theres an opportunity for me to gain a leg up on the off chance that Faz scores badly I could capitalise

    Ahh yes I see. Replace one Tolo with a Hess. My mistake.

    2. Lolo

    4. Martin
    --------------------
    5. Croker (red dot)
    6. Mbye
    7. Lewis
    8. C Thompson (red dot)


    Now that the Tolo/Lolo mystery has been solved, I can point out that you're current setup will not allow you to get Mbye's score. You won't be able to move him after tonight's game and you won't be able to move another red dot (Thompson) in front of him.

    You can do a loop with Mbye and RTS. To do this set your team as follows:

    Cook
    Fifita, Taupau
    JTrbo, Chrichton, Hess
    Cleary, DCE,
    Latrell, Cotric,
    Holmes, Teddy, Thompson

    1. Farah
    2. Lolo
    3. McInnes
    4. Martin
    --------------------
    5. Croker (red dot)
    6. Mbye
    7. RTS
    8. Lewis


    If Mbye craps out tonight move RTS into Croker's position. Even if Mbye posts a score of 40 to 50 this can potentially be bettered by RTS, so you will probably have a tough decision to make here. I'd want a massive score from Mbye to forget about putting RTS in front of him.
    You may be able to get both players scores if Martin ends up being a late scratching anyway.

    Good luck with your H2H

    Just bumping this onto the first page, as looping talk is not wanted in the main thread. (Mainly did it to brighten up Finchy's week after his terrible start to the fantasy season Wink )


    For those of you who don't know what loopholing is, go to the first page of this thread and read Milchy's posts.

    Any questions on how to set your team up to do the loop, should I take the score of player X over player Y, etc., should be asked in this thread.


    Cheers

    Thanks Cookie! I was guilty of looping last weekend Twisted Evil got me a nice +25
    After seeing some big scores in my EMG I just couldn't help myself.
    Why not get a little boost in the all important round 1 ?

    Not this round as he plays the first game. But there are still options.
    But round 3 he's in the last game which is excellent
    Rounds 4 and 5 he's middle of the round which is alright.

    Post your full team and I'll show you some options. It all depends on game timings and what players you have.

    This week you'd be playing him in your starting 13 with 2 WFBs in your EMG. As a hypothetical example...

    Starting WFB: Allan, RTS, Edwards

    13-17 : No WFB

    18: Napa
    19: Ravalawa
    20: Kahu

    Allan would get a DNP and your 1st replacement WFB is Rava. After seeing Rava score 10 points you decide you want Kahus score so you'd swap Kahu and Napa before the cowboys or bulldogs play. Now Kahu is your 1st WFB replacement and you'll get his score. Conversely Rava scores 45 you leave your team as is and on Monday (start of last game) Rava's score is added to your total.

    Just in time for the Burns discussion.

    With a 4 week injury, 100k still to make and playing the first bye round I will be using Burns to loophole Sivo/Rava/Edwards/CNK. TLT dependent of course but I think there is too much upside there for 4 weeks of WFB roulette to go against me.

    I'm of the same mind but am a bit stumped on how to loop Sivo/Rava since Burns plays first.

    My Extended Bench : Burr / Keighran / Sivo / Ravalawa

    Since Burns / Burr Keighran will all lock before Sivo / Ravalawa play, I'm not sure how to loop.. Unless I bench Lawrie for Burr/Keighran

    Much like Rapture, your best bet is probably to put Burns into position 17 and have a look at Keighran's (or Burr's) score.


    Edit: Scratch Keighran from this now
