      Much better in the old days when you actually had to research break evens and if players were in out with no rollback option. Today the site just does it all pretty much for you and it take far less skill, dedication and research it really has now become mostly luck. I would regularly finish top 500 10 years or so ago but now not a chance as most people just pick like you say the same teams.

        So… when there’s a level playing field, you lose and everyone else is just lucky. But, when you had an advantage and win more because of that advantage, that’s skill? Riiight.

        With limited trades if you were careful you’d beat most people going for the car. The optimal strategy in that case was to get a “finished” team ASAP, which meant early trades. This strategy would often mean crashing and burning at the end of the year if injuries/suspensions hit. The careful player would beat many of these players.

        In fantasy that strategic element is removed, so careful players do not get an artificial bump up the rankings by beating better players who were simply using a high-risk, high-reward strategy.

    F: Dunks Danger Telly Boak JZ Worp (Burgo Gardner)

    Currently thinking Answerth -> Logue and Burg/Gard -> named fwd rookie (but which one, on either side of the trade!)

    Helps me with a fwd cover, and also cash gen from logue in the next few weeks to assist in operation get whit. Any other thoughts???

          Not a glitch. You changed your team to make Taranto VC (assuming he wasn’t during his bye Rd). Therefore can’t roll back team to original state.

          Why you couldn’t reverse the trades, I have no idea

      Naish is out so definitely Naish to Hayden/Hanrahan (idk who’s better tbh- people say hanrahan has better JS but the DPP of hayden may be good for you).
      Baker still has money to make with a BE of 10 and well there’s no new rucks named so no point doing so this week (can do next week even) if Naish is going to net you more $$.

    Need help plz. Trade O Baker up to Hannebery leaving $161k in bank or trade S Walsh down to Hanners leaving $306k in bank. Walsh BE of 72 set to gain $15k this week, Baker BE of 10 set to gain $35k. If I trade Walsh will have to play Baker on field this week with the hope to upgrade him next week with the extra cash. Do people think there will be similar cash to be made and points to be scored from Hanners as either of the other two? Or am I over thinking this??? Sooo confused!!!!

      I’d certainly be trading Walsh before OBaker. Walsh’s money-making days are over, but Baker is still rising in price.
      I’m not convinced Hanners will make more $$ than Baker, though he’ll probably score more points. I’d need more than one decent game before considering grabbing Hanners. And I’m not into the ‘stepping stone’ thing at this point in the season.

      If I’d had the VC on Kelly I’d be taking it for sure – points in the bank. (I had mine on Cogs, hoping he’d go huuuge, but never mind!)
      Always a gamble trying to ‘predict’ who’ll go big. That’s what makes the loophole such a bonus – if you choose to take it there’s no more nail biting!

    Why did anyone suggest to make Dramafield Captain again, and why the hell was I stupid enough to listen? To quote myself earlier on this site…”Dramafield could be 180 or 80.” Because I took Taranto as VC when Jelly is the best, I thought it was worth the risk. FMDT.
