Aha, I was waiting for someone to ask. It's a POD move. Everyone else has him on field so I was thinking if I back all my other midfielders and they all outscore him, I will have a big advantage over all the sheep who put Macrae on field.
I have 1 upgrade left to do in the backline after trades this morning - looping Williamson & McPherson currently at D6. Would love to get Lloyd in the next 2 weeks to finish the team off although the 2 Smiths are a worry lol :-
So here it is, completed with 22 non rookies. I'd like to welcome back both Max Gawn and Josh Dunkley with my first two hockey pockey trades for the season (a spot normally taken by Tom bloody Rockliff). I've raged out TJL this week. FO and never see my team again. 2 trades and $42k left.
This is the final team, the weakest links are ZWilliams and Walters. Feel like ZWilliams can turn the corner quickly, but Walters is dependent on a role change and looks less promising.
No trades this week. If there are no injuries this round I will hopefully be able to do Draper down to a 102k forward and Wicks to Greenwood next round, it will be very close. That would leave me with 1 trade and allow me to put Walters at F7 and loophole him with Dev Smith/Simpkin the last two weeks. If that can't be done and Walters has a shocker I'm just going to downgrade a Schoenberg type and upgrade him to Greenwood or someone else.
