Yeah he may not get TD's from inside the 10's but he gets the TD's. He has 12 TD's in his last 11 games. How many other players can say that? He is one of the most underrated fantasy RB's out there.
well... whenever someone says that somebody has 12 td's in the last 11 games, i'm generally guessing they also have 12 td's in the last 13 or what not. let's check. hmm... yep. 12 td's in the last 13 games and 13 td's in the last 18 streching back to the beginning of last season (and omitting, as tag did, that he didn't plan in the last 2 games of last season otherwise it would be 12 td's in the last 14 and 13 td's in his last 20). isn't number manipulation fun?
i'm not that familiar with the eagles rushing game this year; how andy reid is assigning duties or what not, but last year, westbrook got more touchdowns than he probably would have because buckhalter got injured real early. so... i'm not sure on what their game plan is this year (i do see that westbrook got one score from the 5), but that could hurt his production.
but regardless: moss is more or less the equal of westbrook in terms of value. and, as others have pointed out, in trading him, the question now becomes how it affects your roster.
