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.
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.
