RFS Bosses: Round 18

12 July 2017
Written By: 

We are almost through what has been an apocalyptic bye period for many of us. On paper (or bye planner spreadsheet) this round doesn’t seem that bad but neither was round 13 or round 16 and look how they turned out. People should be really close to final teams and by round 20 your teams should be done, pending injuries.  

The top 5,000

First the weekly average scores at various ranking intervals:

That’s a pretty big drop from top 100 to top 5,000. In round 12 it was 110 points, round 15 was 191 points and last round was 180 points.

Here’s where the Bosses are ranked:

Five bosses in the top 100 is really pleasing, in fact having 10 in the top 1,000 is pretty good too.

Captain choices

Hard to believe but there were only two loopholes played this week, both had the C on Dylan Edwards and VC on Angus Crichton. The reasons for people not loopholing were:

  • Sam Burgess as VC – 9 Bosses
  • Greed punished (captained Taupau or Cleary) – 3 Bosses
  • Greed rewarded (captained Nathan Brown) – 1 Boss

The people that had the VC on Burgess got stuck with Martin Taupau (5), Brown (2), Cleary (1) and Edwards (1) so it was a bit of a mixed bag.

Trades

One Boss didn’t trade, another traded one and the rest used both trades.

Here’s the trades remaining for all the Bosses:

Having 8 or 9 trades left will lead to a strong finish if there is an injury crisis but gee there is some opportunity cost in not having used those trades earlier.

Seeing a few Bosses dump RTS is a bit surprising but there’s such a surplus of WFB around something has to give and with RTS on the shelf last week I guess it is an easy choice.

Nathan Brown and Aiden Tolman are interesting trade ins considering they are both on byes this week but not a lot of decent FRF.

Composite Team

The composite team scored a pathetic 384 after being stuck with just 8 players. It also seems to have too many trades left (7) and still no pathway to sorting out the second hooker spot. Ranked 1,353 but should be good for a top 1k finish.

Looking forward

One final bye round but it should be pretty easy to field 17 players baring some sort of disaster.
