Who should I have in my D5 and D6 spots out of Jiath, Cumming, and Jones? I'm worried that Cumming just won't see the ball down back against the Roos, whereas Jones and Jiath should both reasonably busy games.

I think cumming will still score well. Even when theyre attacking hes one of their better kickers so they will use him to deliver it up the ground.
Out of the other 2 its pretty even id say
I would have Cumming #1 out of all of them. North have been giving up a heap to defenders. Cumming should be very good.
On the flip side, both Geelong and Sydney give up the least points to defenders, so not sure Jiath or Jones will be very good.
I would put Jiath, as he’s shown a better ceiling than Jones. But it’s really toss of a coin. Definitely put cumming on the ground.
Edit - just saw you’ve got Bianco. I would have him ahead of Jiath and Jones this week for what it’s worth, purely because of his role
Although Port playing at home helps Jones, unless you think Port win well enough for a bit of chip to chip in the backline the matchup vs Geelong is not good at all; Geelong are both the hardest team to score against in terms of fantasy points to date and the second hardest for defenders. Sydney are the hardest for defenders and Jiaths form isn't great so I would straightaway field Cumming over the other two (I wouldn't worry about the North matchup, if anything that should help especially as teams tend to control the ball in the backline when winning i.e., 'junktime'. So for me it comes down to jiath vs jones. it's a tough one but I would probably go jiath personally as he can score from intercepting whereas jones appears to rely more on peeling off for uncontested + 6s. I can't give a definitive answer but I would personally go Cumming & Jiath, hope that helps and good luck for round 13!
you should try to move laird or mills into the mids for a week and play all of them
Yeah I'm playing around with some trades to see if I can do that, at the moment I don't have the DPP's in other lines to facilitate it. The trades I've found that could do that, aren't all that appealing.
With the trades that I have currently made, I have 21 players on the field, so I'm happy to go with the current lineup as I feel like my top 18 scores for the bye round should be ok.
Sinclair, Coffield and Wilkie all went 70+ v the Roos in Rnd 11. I'd probably stick with Cumming.
Thanks for the advice everyone!
