I guess it's kinda trading away some risk for a safer bet with MJD, but I dunno if giving away Morris is worth it. I mean MJD is going to go nuts against Indy but Morris might end up having a good year.

I had a chance to get MJD before the season started for Shonn Greene and Eric Decker. Definitely regret not pulling the trigger on that one. As for your trade.. its not bad. I think you may have given away a little too much for what you got. MJD will be a solid RB1, but I don't think he'll have a monster year again. Torrey Smith is Baltimore's biggest deep threat, but he hasn't shown much chemistry with Flacco yet. If and when he does, he'll be a valuable WR.

As for the guys you gave up. Desean Jackson is one of those guys that will give you rain or shine weeks. I'm not a big fan, so I agree with ditching him for some other talent. I'm on the fence about Morris. He has proved himself in a couple games, so he *may* actually be a starting RB for Shanahan. BUT..I have been burned by Shanny before. So getting rid of his flavor of the month RB while he's hot isn't a bad idea. As for Jamaal Charles..I think you might have pulled the trigger on him a game too soon. He had a decent week one..good yards per carry, and then he had a minor setback to his knee Week 2. They played it on the safe side taking him out, but I think he'll be back very soon.

For you, the trade is safer, but with less upside. His pickups are a lot riskier, but if they payoff..they will payoff big. All in all, not a bad deal either way.

Not a bad trade for you. ;-D

Charles is in a slump of sorts and Morris may not finish the year as the best RB in Washington but MJD will fill in nicely for you. You take a hit in the WR department losing Jackson but your current starters are good enough to keep Smith on the bench till BYE weeks hit.

My real endgame, honestly, is to swap MJD with someone else for a better RB like Ray RIce or LeSean McCoy, or straight up for someone like DeMarco Murray perhaps.

Not a bad plan. You have a fairly decent bench. Exploit the weaknesses of the Rice/McCoy owners after MJD has a big game. A package like MJD and D. Thomas for McCoy/Rice/Foster might work out for you. If you are looking to do a straight up trade..keep an eye on Reggie Bush, DeMarco Murray, McFadden. I wouldn't go to a lower tier than that unless they are willing to add something to the pot.
