We are one bye week down and have two to go. However you scored, it’s a new week and we have another opportunity to surge up the rankings or watch it all go up in flames.
You would have wanted to score around 1,900 last week with anything over that a bonus. This was fairly achievable if you had Max Gawn and avoided the handful of premium players that scored poorly (Stewart, Darcy, B. Smith, Petracca). The playbook this week is fairly simple – trade in a round 12 premium (as they have already had their bye), pray for kindness at the selection table and try and field a full team.
To help you prepare for this week, let’s check in on how the top 1,000 are structured heading into the most difficult bye round.

The table below shows the average number of players and points that the top teams would field in each bye round with their current teams.
The current top 1,000 fielded a fairly strong team on average for round 12 with about 20 players and 14 premiums. This will be a little skewed to teams that have loaded up on the first bye round though – the true test will be rankings after round 14.
This group is now looking a little light on for round 13 with an average of 16.9 field players and 12.4 premiums before trades. This is looking like the lowest scoring week, so don’t stress too much if you too are struggling – just try and get to 18 on field.
Round 14 continues to look strong, but is a little down in terms of premium player count (13). Expect coaches to add a further 2-3 premiums by the time next round starts.
