No, you should set retention policy to 14 restore points with periodically active fulls and rotate disks as you wish.
Please review this article about How repository with rotated drives work

Since the rotated drive option is enabled, it performs check during every backup session, if there is a consistent backup chain on the currently attached drive the job will start incremental run.

You can set BCJ retention to 7, that should be enough to have a week long copy on the secondary media with the GFS RPs for archival purposes. Thanks!
