Anyone looking at Jsaf?

208K frf/2rf dual

40min 44pts

could be a nice slow burn, Ese 26min, dsaf 34min and klemmer56min could be good going forward?

He did, and I think he does (I’m not Turkey obviously). I can see Herman being used as a wrecking ball to tire out teams for the other forwards to lay the platform later on in the game. Herman may come on if there’s an injury obviously, but I see 35 mins being his ceiling unless there is injuries.

In saying that, JSaf could be an interesting option. However, not for me. I’d rather Guler for $220,700 after his score on the weekend (if he can back it up somewhat mins wise of course, will very unlikely maintain)

Agree. For me it’s whoever has the best two round average and likely most minutes for round three (if there is a round three) as to who I choose between Jsaf and Emre. Show me the money!

But it could be more than that, do knights play rd12? Dsaf/Klemmer out, Guler would be a earlier sell if he gets less min rd2-3, Papali played less min than expected, Bateman to return and horse/tapine to bench, Young/Sutton to come back in.

Knights have the 2rf who is always injured

Different strokes for different folks turkey. I would be trading a non playing reserve for emre or jsaf so it will be a cash grab for me to upgrade my top 17. With talk of a shortened season etc. i don’t see any point in trying to prepare for the bye rounds. I usually don’t start preparing for bye rounds until 3-4 rounds beforehand anyway. Get the early cash and suprise gun players is my top priority.

Thinking I might just flick Fus this week. Went against my gut getting rid of Shiba for Fus, so I may reverse that this week. Hold the 2nd trade pending Kikau injury updates. I think I’ll give JWilliams a second week.
Koro/BBrailey
Haas Knight/Musgrove Rudolf
Lolo DFifi Kikau/JWilliams Carrigan EKatoa
Cleary/Wakeham
Milford/Luai
Isaako Yeo Fus Lomax/Watkins Kennedy Wiliame
Ponga/Pap
$63.1k ITB

So Fus to Shiba gives me $121.7k ITB, and likely a stronger 17

I’d dump Fus for sure, but Shiba wasn’t all that impressive either. I know Blake failed but it was honestly a terrible game. You could wait a week and have another look at which cheap CTW is going to make the most cash and jump on? Rest of your team looks fine, pending the Kikau injury.

I want to have a season where I have max trades left. 😀
Rnd 1 ,Weather conditions , don’t chase last week pts. etc etc

Injury front Brooks 4 weeks Moylan 4weeks + Dogboy Tpj 4 weeks -Tetevano? seem the most significant news

If the season progresses much further i’ll do trades next week.. Stimson with a try = Lucy etc. Will look at be’s next week for cash gen/team value. Very aware of the fix it up now window but gut says wait

Late call up , Parras defence , wet conditions etc ,nearly got over the line second half and then bad pass. If tlt is cruel to him I may chop him down but if there are no rookies with Js I will wait a week and cross every thing hoping an opportunity opens up. I can play the likes of Walters ,Luai , Watkins as well so not situation critical

Any chance of any updates for Murray and/or Su´a? Nothing big, but a 45 for Su´a and 50-odd for Murray would make me feel much better about how they went. As has been mentioned before, a few players seem to have been scored pretty low, hoping there is some room there for the fairy to do her magic.

Not exactly the start I was looking for. Sitting on 930 (Captain Turbo). Quite a few under-performers, mostly in the CTW; BJ Ramien and the Fus.

Pretty happy with my SJ pick though.

1116 with the C on Haas. Pretty happy with it.

Concerns: Arrow & Lucy

Trades: None

Keeping an eye on the HGrant situation as I do have Walters and that could need fixing.

Mann went well creating in the trial as well. Seems much more switched on this season . While both those were against easy opposition Rooters B and shell shocked NZ still one to watch.

I didn’t buy him to start with but if I did, I wouldn’t be selling Blake after just one game. Still gotta think that Parramatta will click into gear sooner rather than later and they do play the Titans this weekend.

I’d hold fire on that trade vs the Titans is as good as it gets! If he fails again I’d consider moving him on. The Thursday game was one of the worst games of footy I’ve seen and the Eels looked unprepared and just expecting things to happen. They’ll be better next game.

Oh yeah not to Mann haha. I was thinking more up to Yeo/Marsters. I’m really unlikely to trade him as I don’t like spending trades on CTW when it’s such a lottery. I feel with players like Blake you just pick and stick, I got him because his draw to start the season is as good as it gets, Eels scored 1 try so attacking players were always going to score poorly, little annoyed with his base but you get that with a CTW.

I’m not sure why there was a craze to get Blake. He’s never been a SC relevant, even at that price.

Would like to know the answer to this too! With Twal playing big minutes and no hooker/half/outside back on the Tigers’ bench, he isn’t even going to get the minutes to be a slow burning cow.

Im giving him one more week I think, and if nothing changes with minutes and base, then swap to Jsaf for only ~ 7K extra

Trade next week to either Guler or Katoa pending BEs and NZ staying in the comp.

This is one of the reason I’m pulling the trigger on trades this week and correcting my side. Who knows what other crisis’ we may have in our sides.

What do you think Guler’s role is with Sutton back ? Hudson Young and Bateman a while away so he has a few weeks at least.

Lolo, Arrow, Kikau, DFifi, Carrigan, Katoa
Moses, Wakeham
GWill, Luai
Burns, Fus, Lomax, Watkins, Suli, Wiliame, Averillo

Bad, bad week. Time to flick Fus and will flick Kikau pending injury report. Thinking Horse and Yeo could be the way to go.
