After this week trades my bye structure is 10-10-10. I've had 29 green dots this week and most look like holding at the moment. Is that structure fine moving into next week?

Next week we'll be trading three 12's/red dots to three 13's & 14's, so the sweet spot for trade out candidates (12's + red dots) heading into next week is 11-12 I reckon (assuming you want to end up with 10 missing R12, giving you 20 on field). So:

(13 would give you no coverage for forced sideways trades next week)

12 gives you coverage for one forced sideways trade.
11 gives you coverage for two of those.

(10 means you're making three sideways trades next week)

Others feel free to correct me if I've completed ducked up the maths on that.

Thanks!

So after reading this 100 times and wrapping my head around it. I've figured I can go Martin - Titch and Owens - rookie and my bye structure ends up as 9 10 11.

With my planned trades this week it looks like 10-12-8 or hopefully Long is named and its 10-11-9

But actual playing is something like 19-15-21 or 19-16-20 :drunk: Hopefully I'll be able to get rid of McComb, SDK and McCartin in that middle week to R12 guys.

Thankfully Mead looks like my only inactive player at the moment, so byes aren't looking that bad despite having 12 out for R12.
Could do with some more R13 premiums and R14 rookies

Round 13 is the only round i seem to be having trouble with atm but between by then i should hopefully be fine as i have a few round 12 players to trade in.

Of course the good old fantasy god may come and screw me

11/12/7 currently, with Hollands, Skinner, Hamilton and Dixon as additional bonus dead wood. So that is 13/14/11 after factoring those in.

Preuss, Whitfield and Smith not assisting matters this week.

Will likely need to cull one of Skinner, Dixon or Hamilton this week and next, just to have a chance of a decent score

How are we all tracking here?

Post trades looking at having 20-18-18 playing (on assumption Cleary and Skinner are dead)

Think much better placed than I was a year ago when I brought in Rosas for a bye week to avoid a donut and then he was dropped lol

Pfft, I brought in Wehr last week and considering McGuinness, Peatling and Owens this week - none of which will be heard of again….

Great way to summarize bye rounds. Rd14 looks weakish - assume this is before trades
Indeed
After proposed trades this week

Mead is my player I have tagged as Not Playing. Although it is likely that Wehr and McComb could also be considered this soon.

Have less players playing now than before the byes and have dropped places so the byes have been a total ******* disaster.
