The simple answer is yes, jump on them. You only need to "save" 2 trades across the whole season (or conversely, use no trades in the very last Round), so there's really no reason not to grab the Rookies with the best B/E's.
Similar theory for me, however attacking different way.
Had king in my forwards bench, as was happy with the slow burn and hope for a nice few games around trade time. However with Sturt knocking up a ton on bench as emergency, think I will sack king and bring in a Mahoney type.
Take the points wherever I can! Short season and points are crucial. As trades aren’t as crucial, having one less playing rookie may not hurt as much. Especially if round 2 is in July - who knows what selection looks like then!
