Why is everyone so down on this trade? These are two WR's who are performing at very similar levels this season. You cant' say it's unfair, some of you calling it a clear ripoff, just because TO is a bigger name. From every indication, Roy will be just as big a star as TO.
Fantasy is not about having the best names on your roster. It's about having the best statistical production in your starting line-up. I'll wager that the Lions have a much easier schedule than the Iggles, which could easily translate to better production for Roy.
Would you guys also gripe about someone trading Thomas Jones for Edgerrin James? But Edge is a bona fide stud, right, and a big name player so he must be better? Jones is a fantasy monster right now, outproducing every player in the league from a fantasy standpoint. I bet the Bears have a softer schedule than the Colts, and Edge always seems to be banged up.
