You can also make a bye player C and bank their score, don't think there is anyone with average good enough to take thou.
I actually like that they lock the Bye players in at the start of the round, think it is a farce that you can use a Bye player as a Captain in the other formats during a Bye round, think it should be from teams that are at least playing in the round.

Mind you I don't agree with using Bye players averages as part of your score either, think it should be based on a actual game and score.

How is everyone else travelling in our little comp in this?

I seem to be doing OK in this format compared to SC & RDT - 1,825 this week to move up to 2,981st.
Nice work, much better than me!

1,661 this week to rank around 19k.

Slow progress for me here with only 15 premiums at this stage - and that’s calling guys like Brodie and Dev Smith premiums!

1,449 for Rd 10, ranked just inside the top 30K.

I haven't been paying much attention to it to be honest. Made some bad trades early on which I have been stuck with, just trading to get a full side a lot of weeks rather than improving my team. Not doing terribly, but not good either.

Just read the weekly update email and the top score last round was 1,887, so you weren't far off it.
I have had a lucky couple of weeks - Maybe due to no Gawn in this format. I still haven’t made any trades this week. About to go in now and do something on my morning coffee break as time for this round is ticking, and I should make sure I use them.

Reminds me I have 1 trade left. Brought in Thurlow for his bye (scored 80 in his first game last week - my best defender score so far this round) and got rid of a donut.

Scored 1706

Can't see how that ranked weekly or overall.

Don't spend much time on this format to be honest.
Spent an hour today on a PC trying to do a DPP of Cameron - > Bytel via Cahill to know avail , worst platform to use in any fantasy game I have played.

why make it so bloody hard just to a trade ?

still have 3-4 F/M in my mids that I will need to move so hopefully it will work

so bloody frustrating

@stephen are you any chance for the weekly?

I am currently on 1807 and surprised to see I am ranked 75 for the week on the live ranking. I have Grundy (c) to come, so an outside chance to hit 2k for the first time in this format. You are 1849, so you must be right at the pointy end. With Grundy & Simpkin to come, I think you are slightly ahead of me.

I am sure there are some heavy North & Pies teams that will steamroll past us though!

You seem to be flying!

I couldn’t access the platform to make any changes last week (even after a password reset) although I don’t think that’s the only reason why I’m lagging ...

oh wow, yeah, i'm currently 21st with Grundy and Simpkin to come. I imagine a lot will have those plus Goldstein and one of them C so can't imagine I have much chance but I will pay more attention now! I actually had the money to get Lloyd in this round but went Witherden instead to save money for next week, and I also played Foot on ground instead of so if I miss out by fewer than 50 points I will have some regrets.

EDIT: Crisp, Adams and Maynard all with >10% ownership too

How close did you get?

I ended up ranking 47 for the round - and it wasn’t even good enough for a H2H win in our league! 🤣
