Completely forgot about Mummy due to the focus on 3rd gamers rather than 1st gamers (2nd week running).
There might be a misunderstanding with first gamers.
Your best target is usually 2nd gamers, as they can have negative B/E's.
As a rough example:
Stack started at $170k, and would have had a 1st game B/E of around 30 (I haven't calculated it exactly)
He will now have a B/E of -25 (once again, I haven't calculated it)
The point is, first gamers have + B/E, and are no guarantee of rising in price, but a good to moderate 2nd gamer will have a - B/E, and only has to play to go up in price.

Using Lockhart from Melbourne as an example:
Rnd 2, his first game, he scored 32, but only went up $4k.
Rnd 3 his second game, he scored 67, and went up $29k

We should keep a track (/do the maths) on a side that has no trades at all, Danger C all year etc.

Still watching on the sidelines as I absolutely loved the concept but only bailed due to being in several leagues where I wanted to go slightly different on my initial start up. Funnily enough I ended up trading in a few players I initially missed out from this initial team.

Only slightly ahead though with a 11,179 ranking and bleeding cash in a few of my preferred choices .... Rucks ...

That website is nothing but atrocious now ...

Heeney, Brayshaw or a traded in premium as VC ??

I went for Brayshaw.

Now to figure out trades, Rocky and B Scott out is a likely option.

I guess we won't be taking Brayshaw then!
No, Heeney is showing as 105 on Fan Footy so is probably 5 to 10 points too low as well so nothing lost.

Lloyd/Gawn would be the ones who may have been traded into teams that would make it worth playing the loophole.

Out: Steele, Duursma
In: Stack, Lloyd

Lloyd 122 as my vice. I guess I should take it??

True. Maybe I am getting the strategy wrong, but sidewaysing premiums is not my focus at the moment! :)

Over to Danger now.
