    Assuming Douiehi gets the full time CTR gig - what do we expect from him moving forward? - scored 22 and 43 (with a try) in Rounds 12 and 14 playing at Centre. Would you play him or hold or cash generation?

    I'm leaning towards cashing him out this round.

    Just a handy EMG backup and could be good for me with Ponga out and if Mitchell for some reason gets rested.

    I would love flexibility of running Latrell and Doueihi at CTR with Holland WFB until Ponga back

    For CTR or WFB final 17 keeper I can't decide between Aitken RTS and Cotric so because only DPP I think I have to pick Cotric

    Im just really scared that Latrell might get rested next week. Looking at those three you mentioned also, but would rather just go James haha.

    Can't see Douehi getting DPP, he's the same as others who have filled in at a position while someone is injured. Maybe he does deserve it though, since he's probably a genuine utility this year.

    Does playing their twice before not help? As I said to my mate earlier he'll get DPP if Lone Scout has him  Laughing

    You are probably right. Just sucks that he gets penalised for being a bench utility. Poor bastard is there to fill any position but they deem him not legable for DPP, stupid.

    I like my trades for final 17 minus Farah. Have to run best of Holland Doueihi until Ponga back

    Katoa Olive Murray Tofu > SJ Cotric Luci Leilua Olam

    CS9 (Cook Mcinnes)
    Kapow James (Kikau)
    Arrow Lolo Martin
    SJ Arey (DCE)
    Mitchell Cotric 
    Teddy Mbye Holland 

    Ponga Doueihi Olam Luci 

    6 trades left 217k Kikau>Farah next week

    Ideally Doueihi gets CTR and DPP then can chuck Olam in CTR and pool best of Holland Doueihi

    I think his price tag isn't the important thing to consider.

    you should be thinking (IMO)

    A. Is he going to be in my final 18.

    If No. Then youre chasing rd 17pts. Do you have the trades to bring him in and out again, and are the points worth the two trades

    If yes. Then can you afford the other immediate trades.

    That's about it for me. Im only bringing in James for Rd 17pts. Id sooner go out with a bang then try take the cautious strategy. Im done with that. Planning is over rated.

    I'm leaning towards leaving James out wolfie. Congrats to those who got him a month ago but I just can't justify that price tag.

    Yeah with 12 trades I think I can do it. McInnes is the other option but wanting to get Farah so that would be too many hookers

    Yeah I think Doui's a good chance of getting CTR (provided he is actually named there next week and again the following).

    After Rd 18 they should update positions, and assuming he's named CTR next week, he'll have played 3 and be named there again for Rd 19.

    Seems likely he'd rack up a few games there if named twice given GI's injury length.
