Start thinking about cashing out players. Dont waste trades, but start the process of the two for one trades.
This involves trading out a couple of average scoring players or cash cows for one big gun and a rookie.
Avoid trading an Origin star who is only out for round 16. Completing the round minus one quality player could save a crucial trade for later in the year.
Dont waste trades at this point by sideways trading.
Best of the Bunnies
If you dont already have Adam Reynolds (HLF - $445,600), its time to grab him.
He is a keeper who has already experienced significant price jumps in recent weeks jumps, which are set to continue. If you want him and dont get him now, expect to pay up to $70,000 over his current price.
Despite unpredictable game time, Nathan Peats (HOK/2RF - $162,900) still has some value. His scores may drop off again after the Origin period, so this will most likely be your last chance to benefit from this trade.
Best of the Rest
Cash Cows: By this stage in the season, you should already have a number of cash cows in your team. Hopefully, they have made plenty of money, and will allow you to upgrade.
If you are still hunting for some dollars, Kevin Locke (WFB - $205,400), Robert Lui (HLF - $269,100) and rookie Storm prop, Mitchell Garbutt (FRF - $116,100), are the best options.
Keeper of the Week: Over the remaining weeks of the season, Dream Team coaches will be offered advice on the best keepers of the round. With only the final Origin to play, many stars are close to bottoming out.
This week, four keepers are under the microscope. Depending on your positional needs, they are all great options. The sooner you can secure one of these DT guns, the better.
Josh Dugan (WFB/HLF - $367,400) is averaging 48.7 and has a break-even of 13. He will go up in value.
Adam Reynolds (HLF - $445,600) BE is 27. With an average of 53.6, he will certainly increase in value.
Sonny Bill Williams (2RF - $377,800) has dropped substantially in value over the last five weeks. His average is 51.8 and BE is 37.
Shaun Fensom (2RF - $425,600) is one of the most underrated players in the game. He is a workhorse, capable of a huge score.
His BE is 50, but with an average of 54.9, dont be surprised if he eclipses it.
All four keepers will miss round 18 regardless of representative commitments as their clubs have byes.
