A few days ago I made what I thought was an awesome trade that could, just maybe, save my season. I really thought I was getting the better end of the deal. But today, it totally backfired on me.
I gave up Tebow, Roddy, Blount, and Ogbonnaya and got Larry Fitzgerald and Stephen Jackson.
Looks great for me right? I gave up unreliable starters, a back up QB, and an injury flyer and got two top 10 players. What could go wrong?
Well, every player I traded away scored 20 points. And not only did Fitz and SJax have bad games, but the flex starter I used instead of Ogbonnaya (Tolbert) also had a terrible day.
All in all, this trade cost me 40 points this week. Which is probably ten points more than I'm going to lose by.
And my long shot chance to make the playoffs just turned into no chance.
That's what I get for dealing for NFC West players....
