Maybe I think he's worth more than what he actually is? In fact, you are exactly right... he was a 7th round draft pick, and so far he is playing like one. You know how we owners are though... we have the "My guy is worth more than your guy!" attitude. To prove my point here is the latest counter offer I just received...
Yeah, I'm totally guilty of that. I'm pretty impartial drafting - but when I got a guy he's the $@#&! I'm a little difficult to trade with because of it.
I'm starting to think this might not be such a bad trade after all. I get a must start guy and take away the need to contemplate the matchups every week. No more... "I knew I should have started _____" or "I had a feeling I should have started _____, but _____ had the better matchup." or the best one...."I would have won if I would have gone with my gut and not played the matchup!"
That's what trades are all about to me. Getting the elite players.
Royal was a nice grab off the wire and if he and Cotchery can get you a guy you is a proven star and a 1st rounder I'm jumping. You've already got Brandon Marshall and he is the most targeted WR in the league. That's really where you want your DEN WR production anyway. Royal's been a little dinged up as well. You have several reasons to sell high on Royal if you can get TO.
Who can you pick up off the ww to fill the empty roster space? You really have to add in your ability to fill the extra spot.
