    I've possibly just left the donuts in the SC gods hands.

    Originally planned Murphy to Redman next round to hopefully guarantee 18 + Tsmith (and an unlikely Mutch).

    Now I've gone Giro this round to bring my player tally to 18 and have 17 + TSmith next round. Hopefully TSmith plays and so does everyone else so I can have 18 both of these rounds!

    Never watched Giro and have no idea what sort of player he is, but looking fwd to cursing him early arvo tmr!

    I traded out Phillips a week early thanks to the st kilda selectors, along with Fritsch and Petracca this week. In came Gray, Wingard and Giro. Happy thus far and port have an easy run home so hopefully have a few power players will be a good thing.

    Those trades get me to 16 playing (1 better than last week!)

    Next week I have Josh Kelly and Brody Mihocek locked in barring any surprises

    Unfortunately, I have 5 playing defenders. If I trade one of Coffield or Murphy, even if the other plays, I'll have 7 defenders playing, so I've got to put all my eggs in the Phillips basket. On the other hand, I could trade someone like a Guelfi or Fritsch, but they've probably got another couple of weeks at least

    I'm thinking of trading Murphy because of his lack of DPP and keep my fingers crossed that Phillips gets a game.
    Apologies if I have misunderstood this, but a couple of thoughts that might be helpful:

    - I wouldn't be basing my trade outs on who maximises your chances of getting 18 on the ground in the unlikely event of a late call up. In a week's time you'll still be (temporarily) stuck with the other players, and whether you got a c. 50 point donut this week or not probably won't seem so important.

    - With that said, Murphy seems like a poor rookie, and can probably be culled without regret unless I'm missing something/something unusual happens. DPP is also handy as you say.

    - A lot of good coaches are trading out one or both of Fritsch or Guelfi this week. I think I cut both of them in all three formats (SC, DT and AF). If you're going for overall, I reckon they've done their job and it's time to move them on.

    I think the scoreboard is pretty clear on this one

    After much considerations...

    OUTs: Gawn, Fritsch, Mirra
    INs: Kreuzer, Bont, Brander

    Started with Kreuzer, then traded to Grundy in Rd2 with the plan of bringing him back once he showed me some signs. The only change to this equation was that Gawn made way instead of Grundy, purely from a strategic point of view. The cash saves me from having to look for another downgrade to complete my team, hence saving a precious trade. If Kreuzer can stay on the park and returns the output I expect, then all is not lost.

    Brander was more of a ‘fitting’ my long term structure trade, as well as another playing Rookie this round. His score in isolation doesn’t bode well, but that’s not his primary role in my team longterm.

    These trades gets me to 17 this round so hoping to ride this out as best as I can.

    Next week looks on paper to be my best MBRs, both in terms of numbers and Keepers, so hoping to come out of the MBRs with my hopes still in tact.

    ^Water under the bridge now given these moves have been made. I am interested in your motivations on the Gawn trade given you are a considered and astute SC player

    Gawn averages 125 across the 2018 season, Kreuzer 90. 35ppg difference over 12 games. In a decade of playing football, there is only one season where Kreuzer has scored 100ppg+ (2017) and only one over 90ppg in the past 5 seasons. This is the 3rd season of the past 4 where Gawn will average more than 100ppg. Gawn is the superior ruckman.
    Trading Gawn raises ~$130k but loses you the guy who will probably be the highest aggregate point scorer in the competition next time he plays.
    Gawn has also proven much more durable again this season, with Kreuzer missing 3 games.
    Trading Gawn also uses up one trade.
    Given the Gawn bye, trading Kreuzer in netted you 78 points this weekend as he was up against Sandilands, always a tough task.

    Why not sacrifice a trade on a $220-250k player into a player like say Stefan Giro?
    - uses one trade similarly
    - immediately raises $130-150k similarly
    - scores only 66pts this round (vs 78 from Kreuzer) but doesn't lose you 30ppg across the remainder of the season (or more if Kreuzer misses games) as you're not using Giro to replace a best 22 player?
    - Giro may also rise in value by $150-200k across the course of the season, providing you with an ability to raise cash if required.

    I see the merit in trading out a Jack Macrae, who is highly priced, is out for 4 weeks and is averaging well above his previous best, but the merits of trading out Gawn are much less clear to me.
