You need to develop a plan that's right for you. The way you phrase your questions suggests you don't have one. I have 14 trades and plan to use 8-9 before (including) rd17. You have three more than me and potentially 12 possible trade outs. You need to decide (probably this week), are you going hard at rd17 like me? Are you gonna go hard for post origin guns? Or do you plan to hoard trades and hope others run out in the run home. All are legitimate strategies. You need to decide.
We're different players. If I had your team and that many trades, I would do the first two, go hard at rd17 AND post origin guns. Hold your red players and consider how many of these guys you want to sell. You could go 10 trades for rd17, 3 post origin and four for the run home. Or 12 for round 17, 2 post origin and three for the run home. Need a rough plan here.
Brailey, Tino, Lodge, Fog, Moses, Olam, Hynes, Laurie, Turpin, Watson, Jones, Momo. None of them play rd17 and none score like your uber guns, so none are mandatory to keep, even though you could totally keep a lot of them. Maybe even add Pappy if you want, no guarantee when he's back, although I'd probably hold now. Once you figure out how many you want to sell, put them in order of urgency. I'd probably sell at least 8-9. Some are obvious, others are not. Eg, Hynes is almost certainly a trade out sooner or later, but not at all urgent. Jones will be a trade out but not urgent. IF you decide Brailey is a sell he might be urgent because of high BE.
It's looking likely you have 17 players this week before trades which is good because you can make the trades you want to make rather than being forced. But if you are planning on selling a bunch of guys like I suggested you probably want to improve your team this week. Work out a list of trade ins (Or just steal the one MS posted for Welshy, it's very good) and then order them in your preference and then order in terms of urgency due to break evens and positional coverage.
I like CHN, SST and Curran as trade ins this week, Simmo if you need a WFB. I think they'll go well and make a little bit of money and if you don't want to keep them, they can potentially become the post origin guns I was talking about. I think Brailey could be a sell before he loses cash. A lot, possibly the majority on here think he's a hold, no one actually knows, up to you. If you have a plan and someone says "that trade is sideways", you can say "yeah, that's on purpose for my plan of maximising rd 17 players" rather than lobbing up another 15 trade options that no one will really be able to help with while you don't have a plan.
Hope that helps and reads as to the point rather than overly critical. Cheers Mulvy.
