Round 12 was high scoring for many coaches, the scoring will fluctuate especially in the first 2 weeks of the Bye period. With so many teams playing with different Bye structures a Par score should be calculated at the end of Round 14 inclusive of all 3 weeks, once each team is through the Bye period a summary of performance can be established.
Trading in players that have completed a Bye in Round 12 should now be a priority, short term trades rarely work so targeting keeper players & solid rookies is a sound strategy.
