What is the minimum amount of players people would be happy playing in rd 13?

Wondering the same thing! I’m personally shooting for 13 minimum I think…

Im going hardish at it with 15 or 16, but not sure if thats the right strategy.

I can’t put a number on it at the moment, still findingyself buying players that don’t play 13, players like Nofo and Kelly have gone fromust haves to risky buys

I’m aiming for 16. I think round 13 might be an opportunity to gain some places, while 17 is a total disaster. 13 we can still field good teams, but 17 might be 10 players and 500 points. Apart from a few Warriors, 17 is very slim pickings.

Brought in Ponga over Gutho, captained Fifita and left Laurie on the pine to drop a couple hundred spots in a shocking last round. Thinking of holding my two trades this round as I have 25 left..

TU Yes
TD Trade

Brailey Watson
TPJ Welch Uto Leniu
Fifita Crichton Barnett Curran* Condon Fui
Cleary SWalker*
Munster Schuster*
To’o Best Fergo Laurie Capes Staines Simmo
Turbo Ponga*

Nothing jumps out as needing desperate fixing. Depends what your plan/expectation for Condon is as he doesnt cover 13 and might be battling a decent BE for a couple of weeks

With 300k ITB realised I have enough coin to do Condon to Tohu, so I’m going to pull the trigger and save the other trade.

Hey All. Thinking of getting a season keeper in CTW instead of Haas (origin).

Thinking of best, sivo, peachy, isaako or Tupou (no week 13).

Thoughts?

Cheers

Id be choosing between Best and Peachey but most on here have been rating Tupou. Sivo and Isaako the risk/reward players if you are looking to roll the dice.

Think it’s probably Tupou over To’o at the moment for Origin, which would mean Tupou doesn’t play 17 either. I think they will go with Tupou’s defense under the high ball.

Best could play imo

Trading out:

  • Fui (looming $ decrease, but maybe potential upside as he’s listed at centre)
  • Capes (injury + origin)

Trading in:
TU: Johnston + 2RF/CTW $173k NUFF
TD: Hynes + Koloamatangi

Was initially thinking of dumping RJames and Roberts, but both listed as not playing this week buys me another week before their decreases.

Watson Liddle
TKO Welch RJames Leniu
Fifita Crichton Tohu Curran* Condon Fui
Cleary SWalker*
Munster Schuster*
To’o Gagai Fergo Laurie Capes Saab Roberts
Gutho Teddy*
$34,400 ITB

Any insights welcome, worried about round 13/origin…!

Reckon you’ve missed the boat on Hynes. I would look at doing something like Liddle to Mahoney and downgrade Capes, go early on Cini or Suali’i? Not sure if the $ would add up tho.

Cheers – keeping Liddle for now as he’s got a good BE. And Hynes looks to be replacing RPaps thru origin and injury right?

I own KK but couldn’t recommend buying him now. Souths are a mess this week and given they are playing Melbourne he’s not in my 17.

Prior to the last 2 weeks he was only averaging about 40, he’s been a major beneficiary of Latrell’s suspension as when Latrell plays Cody always throws it out the back behind KK as decoy. Benji also looked for KK more than Cody ever did, but Cody back to 5/8 this week.

Think my main issues are Capewell and Condon but no urgent trades.

Brailey Watson
TPJ TKO Uto Leniu
Angus Fifita Barnett Curran Condon Nuff
Cleary Walker
Munster Schuster
To’o Nofo Kelly Capewell Laurie Staines Nuff
Teddy Turbo

181k itb

Thinking Condon to Klemmer (via TPJ). But Klemmer maybe still a chance of playing origin?

Any other suggestions would be super helpful

Nice team, would suggest holding trades if you needed to save a couple.

Condon > Blore probs a good move to cash in at Condon’s peak and get Blore in early. Worst case is Blore ends up being a nuff but you’ve still pocketed over $100k, so can’t lose really.

Any chance Tesi Niu plays round 13? Wondering whether to hold him

I’m holding him for the moment, but he seems to be down the pecking order, usually out at the 1st cut. He’s not losing money, but he may only get another look if an injury takes somebody else out.
