Default So am I crazy for having accepted this trade?

I just traded Dalton, Sproles and Bush for Marshawn Lynch. Crazy?

A couple of people in the league were ribbing me for it but it is a PPR keeper league (we keep 2).

My Starting roster is:

RGIII (Romo behind him)
Martin
Lynch (scores more than sproles or bush)
Calvin Johnson
Demarius Thomas
Denarius Moore
Jimmy Grahm
STL D
Tucker

Basically I made the call that sproles or bush starts for me if I don't have lynch but I can't start both of them and with RGIII and Romo I was ok to give up Dalton (strength of schedule favors RGIII v. Dalton).

I was willing to make the deal because Lynch is a consistent producer for the most part and he's taking on Chi (I'm playing the worst team in my league this week) this week but his schedule softens up quite a bit over the next few weeks. I really had Dalton, sproles and bush and wasn't able to take advantage of any of the points that Dalton and one RB was getting. I will wind up with about 25% more points out of Lynch than I would have out of either sproles or bush and he is much more consistent.

The deal made him better too. His QBs were Cutler/Smith and his other RB was Ballard. He gets to put a lot of points into his lineup and loses the producer that Lynch is. Was I crazy? I think it benefited both teams. Thoughts?

I'm in first place in my league and with a win this week and if the guy that I made the trade with wins this week he will put the closest guy to me 2 games behind me and shore up the #1 seed in the playoffs. I didn't want to fleece the guy and I didn't want to get fleeced but I was willing to overpay to get a solid, consistent guy in at RB instead of trying to guess who was gonig to show up between bush/sproles/wavertrash every week.

Mike
