Looking to make a couple of trades this week. I’ve wanted nofo for ever and with CS9 out I can finally get him. Is this smart or are there better trades for me this week?

CS9 >> Jazz
Best (pending out) >> Nofo

$12.2K ITB
Haas Carrigan / Ale Guler
Lolo JFH Lucy / Katoa Fermor Saulo
Cleary / Walters
Flanno / Luai
Yeo Mansour Mann Best / Talau HTF Williame
Teddy / Ponga

If Best isn’t out for too long then Hammer would be more of a priority trade. Maybe Kikau, the Cheese or Whitehead?

If I do Walters out and Reynolds -> Moses that leaves me with 446k for a HKR/2RF/FRF/CTW (thanks to duals) Whats the best option?

TU: Nuff to a cheapie (Randall most likely) and bank the money for a gun next week
TD: Bring in a player around 450k (Whitehead looks an interesting POD in this range)

If TD, any suggestions on players in that range would be appreciated 🙂

Only going TU because i cant be bothered to search for PODs but im sure if you had a look they’d be some enticing players in that range

Yea I can’t be bothered too haha and I’m pretty set on Jazz as a 2RF keeper so I could do that next week with the ITB funds

I’d look at the Cheese over Whitehead. I like him a lot but Whitehead seems to regress with Bateman in the team.

I was very interested in Cheese but I’m 7k short

Was away and without phone range last weekend so didn’t get a chance to do the last trade to get some cash out or to get Munster in, and now stuck about what to do.

$192.9k ITB

Grant (Smith)
Haas, Taupau (Rudolf, Kolo)
Matto, Lolo, Carrigan (Fui, Davey, Fermor)
Cleary (Walters)
SJ (Luai)
Sivo, Lomax, Yeo, Nofo (Best, HTF, Eisenhuth)
Teddy (Ponga)

Could go:
Walters -> Munster (or Moses via Luai)
Luai -> Munster
Rudolf -> E Katoa
Rudolf -> McGuire
Smith -> Randall/Munster
HTF -> Staggs/Mansour

I think GWill to Flanno is sideways with Raiders draw. Hammer to Staggs depending on Best’s injury news?. Grant starting hooker isn’t ideal either. Massive cash grab in Randall or Jazz?

So I’m holding CS9 because I can’t see how Storm don’t have him starting v Chooks in 2 weeks. The conspiracy theorist in me says the injury wasn’t that bad at all but was a good chance to give him a rest and he is unlikely to be needed vs Dogs. First trade JTB – nuff. $311k remaining CS9, Grant Haas, Carrigan, nuff, nuff Lolo, Yeo, McInnes, Katoa, nuff, nuff SJ, Cleary Munster, Luai Nofo, Mansour, Best, Kennedy, Talau, Hammer, Lemelu Teddy, Ponga Struggling with the second trade. Best to Bateman (Best doesn’t feel like a sell depending on injury… Read more »

How would you rank the following in terms of trading out?
Will get rid of 1 this week while the other 2 the following.
Currently thinking Mansour out first as i can see him being outscored by both

Thoughts on Mansour?

Hasn’t scored above 64 once in the last 7 weeks, base is getting lower and lower each week.. averaging 52.8 over that time frame.

Starting to think he isn’t a keeper, might consider moving him on in the next week or two.
