I'm thinking it could be 3 down first then 3 up over the next 3 rounds. Double down, down/up and up/up
I'll have a look into this when I get the time
This is what I am also thinking. You already have Petracca so Keays has to be your option there.
Matho, Cuningham, Hopper, Kennedy, Whitecross, Trengove, Mullett, Broad and Marcon are the ones that would have to be looked at as downgrade targets if they get a string of games, but the only ones that might be close are Marcon, Broad and Trengove. If a few of them or on the bubble come bye time that would be great, it's just unfortunate that we had a heap of defenders already come and go for this purpose.
I'm thinking banking the cash now could be a hell of a lot more useful then getting Matty Boyd in because come 3 weeks time I'll still hopefully have 200k in the bank and won't have to look at doing a downgrade. So my thinking is something similar to this.
I need 8 upgrades not including Wells but including Libba in that bunch. I have 21 trades remaining after doing a double downgrade and 700k in the bank. Looking at next week I'll do something like this
Trade 20 - Downgrade - 800k remaining
Trade 19 - Upgrade - 7 premo's remaining - 600k
Trade 18 - Upgrade - 6 remaining - 400k
Trade 17 Upgrade - 5 - 200k
Trade 16 - Uprade - 4 remaining - 0 cash
Trade 15 - Hopeful downgrade - 100-150k
That means I can head into round 11 with 14 trades remaining, 100k in cash, Wells, Adams, Libba, Kerridge and Byrne-Jones as my rookie/mid-price guys. The downside is I'll be copping the loss in having to start Menadue and Smith this week over a premium....
I blame Robbie Gray.
