Seems like You don’t have Hynes as VC… So You probably need to pick between Cleary and Turbo… Some of us got the Hynes Headache 🙂

With Haas getting injured last night you could use your second trade to plan for his absence (e.g. upgrade either James or Lenui if you aren’t comfortable playing either in your starting 13).

I know the loop hynes question is everywhere but would people be looping if meant benching Fergo and Blore was the probable ae?

You will know what Blore scores after game 3 tonight so can you delay your decision on whether to loop or not until tomorrow?

My thinking in a similar situation. If I loop I get Blores 10 and leave out Barnett 40-50, so net 30-40 loss. If Hynes updates a bit and gets end up 320 as captain, Cleary needs 280 or so make looping not worth it. So if you think Cleary gets 140 or more, not much point. Me, I’ll probably take the points. Cleary might get a rest to give Burton some time in the halves or get a HIA or have an off day. As stated, we can wait until after Tigers game and check what Blore gets. Hopefully he… Read more »

Well after not taking the chance to trade Peachey to Hynes last night I’m kicking myself. Got 24 trades (2 left for this round) and looking to bolster my H2H chances this weekend. I’m OK most spots but CTW looks pretty horrid: Laurie, Manu, Simonsson, To’o (Peachey, Niu, Averillo). $233K ITB. Looking down the list of who’s available it’s slim pickings if I use only one trade and punt Manu or Simo… Peachey’s back next week so a bit reluctant to trade him but can if there’s a great option available – yeah I know that was Hynes yesterday 🙁… Read more »

Particularly as you are h2h,I would just be looking at season long keeper in Holmes.

Do you need a win in 13? Or are you likely to win anyway?

A lot of H2H players effectively ignore the byes.

I would hold Manu as he’ll most likely cover FB for Teddy

with welch out i was forced to play leniu in my starting side this week so was already prepared to cop a ~25ish. i have vc’d hynes and only have 2 current NPRs in james and simonsson, so if i slot uto into front row as captain then im just adding leniu to the lottery. feel like this is a pretty obvious loop scenario but thought id get some opinions!

TU loop
TD no loop (keep c on cleary)

cheers

If you already have to play Leniu, then yeah you’re pretty much already copping an AE score. Just comes down to how much you think Cleary scores.

I am in a similar situation, only npr I have at the moment is Simmonson it means I don’t need to trade a 2RF in for Crichton, so it’s looking good to me

This is my combo of players too, and I’ve looped

Looks like Cleary would have to score under 136 for my loop to work…
Most years no problem, this year with his scores its just a problem.
Although 7-10 games are under 107
One 125
And two over 190 ..
chancing the odds are with me .

Am I the only one who thinks that the Panthers won’t blitz the Dogs? I’m not saying it’ll be an upset but the Roosters were supposed to lap the Broncos last week.

H2h player, opponent also has VC Hynes, C Cleary.

Considering looping Hynes, but for who? Put a ** next to my 4 reserves currently.

Brailey (Liddle**)
JFH, TKO (James, Leniu)
IPAP, Tohu, TPJ (Crichton, Curran, Fuimaono)
Cleary (Burton**)
Luai (CWatson**)
Hynes, To’o, Fergo, Laurie (Saab, Roberts, Cini)
Teddy (Gutho**)

Any advice on who’d be the best loop greatly appreciated, thanks guys

Looking for a gun 2RF to bring in for Fifita, was thinking Tohu but not sure if there are any other good options that play Rd 13? Have Matto, Thompson

Why are you trading out Fifita after holding him for two rounds?
