    I am very confused about these bye rounds. For the players who have a bye, does their average go towards my total round score? And why do our big players that have a bye go on the bench?

      hey Adrian, no the players u have which r on a bye you dont get there average score, it will be a big fat doughnut (0), so it’s best to put those players on the bench and u may have a player or 2 that isnt on a bye and u can play them,

      We have 3 trades so its a time to get rid of ur dead weight and to improve ur team

      Hope that helps ask any other question

    I get it guys if you hold Grundy but not Gawn, an easy sideways trade. But, if you hold both, and Grundy is out for 3 weeks, do you hold or trade? And who do you trade him to, knowing you’ll need to get him back in again Rnd15 or after?

      if you trade grundy, go to darcy, I’m holding because I have gawn and flynn cover.

        Thx Aby and tbh I wish I’d held Flynn a few weeks back.

    I still haven’t got around to getting Grundy in fantasy so no big deal for me.
    I do have him in another comp with limited trades, so will probably have to hold him there.
