However you will also need some luck with player injuries and Origin selections and player availability.
There are a lot of permeatations to take into consideration, not only Origin selections but who comes in for those players at club level and what role do they play and also which Origin players are likely to back up after playing Origin.
My advice would be to get a piece of paper and plan out your strategy. If you are in 5000th place or further back maybe the bye rounds are your chance to attack and make your charge up the leaderboard.
If you are in the top few thousand you might take the ploy of just trying to manage your way through the Origin period and hopefully maintain your position and some trades for the run home.
Personally I’m in 3,890th place and whilst I need to make up some ground I haven’t really saved any trades and I’m sort of at the stage where every trade from here on in is either to bring in a keeper or it must have very high strategic value to my team.
Rather than looking at the usual POD’s and Super POD’s this week I’ve decided to break it down into players you want for the run home (keepers), those players that shape up well for the Round 13 bye and Round 17 bye rounds.
