I had two different trades go through last night (one for each team). There's some risk on my part in both of them, but somehow my records both stink this year. I feel like I have great teams for 12-team leagues, but a combo of injuries, bye weeks and sitting a guy the week he goes off and playing guys (like Torain) who end up with -5 yards, and I have losing records for both teams which is a first for me. Totally bites. Anyway, enough venting, here's the low down:
TEAM 1: Traded Benson + F Davis to get McFadden

TEAM 2: Traded Blount + Torain to get Andre Johnson + Redman

I'm a little bummed to hear Andre still isn't recovered, but hopefully he's good to go after this week. What do you think?

I love the Team 1 trade. You got a stud in McFadden for a much weaker RB in Benson and so-so TE in Davis. Great deal
I like the Team 2 trade. You got AJ who's a stud when healthy to shore up your WR corp and he's almost ready to come back. You got him in return for 2 RBs that would probably ride your bench except for bye weeks or injuries.
Good luck.
