Default I accepted this trade.....was it good enough?

Now before you see the trade you must know I poorly executed my draft so I only had jamal Charles and Jacobs for RBs, had to have a buddy do it and dont know how he managed to pick only those two but whatever. When Charles got hurt I literally had only Jacobs and I need to start 2 RB. Here was my team after some pickups.

Drew Brees
Dwayne Bowe
Denarious Moore
Brandon Jacobs
Evan Moore
Deon Branch
Braylon Edwards
Aaron Hernandez
Brandon Llyod
Joe Flacco
Marques Colsten
Pierrce Garcon
Randall Cobb
Adam Vinateri
Arizona DEF/ST (just cause of matchup)

so the trade was

I get
Cedric Benson
Plaxico Burress

They get
Brandon Llyod
Aaron Hernandez

I had to accept considering I need him for this week. I also knew that he might be seeing a 3 game suspenison, but it would start in week 4 so I would have him this week. Plus he is appealing it. So what do you guys think? For my desperate sitition was it an ok trade?

You could afford to lose Lloyd, but your are gonna really be hurting at TE without Hernandez. Hit the waiver wire.

Honestly I'd be looking for a higher quality RB still. Trade Bowe or Edwards or Flacco to someone who needs a QB and either include Benson and trade up or add another decent RB for depth, especially for when Benson is out. Should see if Bernard Scott is available too.

If they're available at TE, you could look into Brandon Pettigrew & Scott Chandler. Just a couple of options. Pettigrew is probably gone, but Chandler might still be out there.

You are hurting at RB, I would pick up bernard scott as soon as you can to handcuff with benson. Also if guys like kendall hunter, steven ridley or dexter mccluster are out there I would pick them up. At this point you have to pick up RB's and hope that in a week or two one of them starts.
