I must admit I have given up on this a bit so I haven't done any trading or subbing of players. But I got a top score of 1005 with 4 DNPs!!

Is that with 13 scoring players? Only max 13 counted last round due to byes

If I remember your team correctly you might be in trouble this week...

I'd go through the ceiling if I moved 25,000 spots haha
Just outside top 3000 currently.

A lot are jumping off Bula - I missed him, kept waiting for him to fall flat but he just kept delivering.

If Turbo and Walsh both play out the rest of the season every chance Turbo outscores him... near guaranteed with an extra game to play.
My other fullback is Gutho so if not Walsh now then maybe Gutho would go to Turbo post origin - all three could be keepers but I think Turbo likely highest scorer of them.

Theoretically if I have a trade handy and I could ride Gutho until final round then go to whoever might have a good match up in round 27 for a final extra scorer and pickup that 10th game score that way.
I thought i'd be trading Gutho out after Origin but I've just had a look and Parra's run home is very healthy. I might end up keeping him and Simonsson. They seem to play down his side a lot more recently.

The Gutho option has added merit considering how unreliable most of the other fullback options have been for most of the season.
Drinky probably has a harder run home than most... Walsh has been pretty erratic.... you'd almost put Isaako back there and use the money in another position!

Don't get me started on Isaako haha
Someone talked me out of him after round 2. I got Hammer instead, then moved him to Hosking after a while, then moved him to BSmith who aint doing much. Made decent money along the way but could have just had Isaako sitting there made just as much and rolling in big scores.
I should be able to upgrade one more CTW spot but I think Isaako might be too pricey when the time comes (unless BSmith wakes up)

I'm going Garrick to Graham... Souths should have a strong finish to the year and he's pretty reliable with a big score in him.

Garrick is a funny one. I’m gunna watch him a little longer but centre could be the death of him. Hoping if he plays regularly with Turbo he’ll be fine

Rabbits still have 2 byes to come (rounds 20 and 26) so that makes them all a little less attractive.

You may have just answered my current struggle haha
Thinking of upgrading Okunbor (who was a disappointing cash grab) to KK or Tapine
Extra game plus dual might get Tapine over the line…

Tapine is a good shout.
Walsh is a downgrade from Garrick... great way to add $100 to your kitty!

Tapine has just been good but not great, hoping he frees up the arm at back end of the season.
Next week I'll nuff Hedwards to a dual I think which will let me rotate Harris, Horse, Tapine and nuff around between FRF and 2RF as needed (2 in each spot per week).

Got both Walsh and Garrick atm
Hoping Turbo/DCE saves Garrick back to being a keeper. Was interested in going Walsh up to Turbo if he was named to play this week but Ok to Tapine doesn't leave me enough money to do it (unless I use my last boost).
Ideally Turbo doesn't play this week though and it gives me a bit longer to think about what I wanna do with Gutho and Walsh who I currently have, and Turbo.

I like to look at the players that could lift in the run to the finals. Tapine should be one. Dafita... Murray, JT, blokes like that

DFif I sold recently as he just doesn't play enough games across this stretch but definitely want to get him back. Hoping his 160 BE and a couple less than 80min games post origin gets him a bit more affordable.

I'll probably pass on Murray and I think JT unless he really started killing it is probably gunna be surplus to requirements (/budget) also

Haas and Yeo are probably the picks in the forwards. Haas is great value at the moment.

Yeah I brought in Haas round 4... he's actually lost me $1100 to this point!
But safe to let him sit there and keep stacking up points.

I haven't really considered Yeo just due to his Origin commitments but he's certainly solid.
If I grab Taps now I think I can only make one more significant move in the forwards though, and planning for that to be DFif

Would end up with forwards of
Haas Harris // Tapine nuff

DFifita Nikora Bateman// Horse Preston dualnuff

If I end up settled in other places and there is some spare money maybe a Preston or someone can upgrade to a better gun.

Byes make nuffs not as good as previous years but I expect I will need the money and it won't time with a cheapie. Post Origin byes will be less impactful.

Yeah I haven't even checked how much my guns are making or losing.. living in ignorance! Although Munster is super cheap now. I'd sold him at the start of Origin season and getting him back now, which works out well.

I'll ride Manu another couple of weeks and then try and get him to Munster
