if you just want simple answer, my answer is fair trade
if you willing to read long speech, below are my reasons
first. i like how you drafted bunch potential RB and wait for it to shine, i think it's the best way to pick bench, i did same thing for myself, except i started with potential QB and WR, and give me advantage when trading. it's just part of drafting strategy and it paid off when you grabbed all the potential RB bench.
second, lost Charles is unexpected, and you happen to be the one that has deepest RB in the league, therefore, i assume nobody else in the league will be willing to trade a equal value RB for G.Jenning. Unless there's someone provide better offer like Mendy, McCoy, Forte or some stud RB for Jenning, and Jenning owner rejected it and trade with you, otherwise, league leave G.Jenning no choice but to trade with you since you are the only one that's able to provide his need.
third, like you said, it's beneficial trade for both team.
points he'll be able to get from F.Jackson and Tolbert is more than points he will lose from downgrading Jenning to Maclin and Finley to Lewis, as for you, you basically transfer your RB depth into starting power.
fourth, i believe Jenning owner know what he is up to when the whole league is talking about this trade, and still make the trade. As long as it's not some experienced manager take advantage on new managers, then it's fair
fifth, TE is deep this year, therefore, upgrade TE is not as significant as people think it was, therefore, getting Finley is less important.
does Jenning/Schaub/Finley out weigh Tolbert/F.Jackson/Maclin/Lewis ??
yes, it does out weigh, and on paper it's not 50/50 fair.
but taking league situation and whole drafting result into consideration, it is the best result
i think best trade is when both team improve and make other 8 teams worry.
but as you mentioned, he want give Schaub instead of Kolb and like to get Maclin instead of D.Bryant, that's his personal choice.
the only time i think this trade should be veto is when someone provide better RB options and he rejected it, then turn to you.
there's never 100% balance trade, it's all about Economic 101 Needs/Wants.
PS - no offense, but for Wayne/Clark for CJ/Forte trade, now, that's something league should veto
