    Re: Round 16 2017

    Preuss and Griffin both miss for their respective teams.

    Joel Smith is back for his 2nd game of the season after playing 1 comeback game in the VFL. If you're looking for a final bench defender who appears to have very good job security, Smith would be a solid option.

    Difference between us folk going for overall and those folks who want to win their leagues. People who only care about a league would still have 10+ trades so they get the best cover and cash cows are still a factor for them at this point rather than chasing every point on field.

    It's funny how quickly you forget just how different league play is to overall play. I reckon I'd almost struggle to win my mates leagues now even if I tried! I mean I'm only 5th in the old work league I'm in and I didn't win it last year!

    I'm already being talked up as going out in straight sets in my mates league. I won it about 6 years ago, since then they have all got very good at league play (saving trades, waiting on cows, playing the opponent for that week) and I'm regularly out of trades. There's a decent chance I will be out in straight sets this year.

    Yeah, it's so different with the cow timing and a league based side should be about 100 points better come round 20 than an overall side because of all the extra cash generated and the ability to time everything.

    Obviously after where I ranked last year I've got a massive bullseye on me as well, so everyone is timing trades to try and beat me. I've scored more than 600 points more than anyone else in the league and lost half my games

    Yep. I talk a lot of smack in my league, so I get targeted a lot with opponents using trades to beat me that week. Hasn't worked this year though.

    The positive with my league is that half the prize goes to best overall rank at least, I much prefer leagues like that as overall will always be my #1 focus.

    My mates all play LOL for their league but it kind of works for me because I can play that one for match ups and RDT for ranking.

    The year I came 11th overall, I won my work cash league (just). The following year 16th I went out before the prelims.
