Lloyd is a downgrade at wr, but you need the help at rb. The points you lose in the wr downgrade will be more than offset in the rb area. You get 2 starters for one. I'd run it thru the TA to be sure. I would make the trade.
Start 1-QB, 2-WR, 2-RB, 1-TE, 1-WR/RB/TE, 1-K, 1-D

12 Team PPR League 0.25 pts/completion 1 pt/rec 1 pt 10 yds rushing & receiving 6 pts TD, 1 pt 25 yds/ passing 4 pts passing TD, -2 fumble, -2 int

I would hold out as Julio Jones is an elite top 3 WR this year IMO. Bush would improve your RB core as I'm not a fan of having Gore as your # 1 RB when he is really a # 2 RB at best.

I would see if the waiver wire might help you in the next couple of weeks especially if you have a high waiver wire claim that you can use.

Perhaps you can get a WR claim of the likes of Stephen Hill or the Jets or Alshon Jeffery of the Bears and then try to do a one for one trade to see if he'll trade you straight up Reggie Wayne who is getting targets like crazy for Bush?

I would go far as to say he's a top 2 WR. I wouldn't do it either. Seems like you should be able to get more- especially after his week 1 performance.
QB: M Ryan
RB: Bernard, Vereen, J Hill, A Bradshaw, T Mason, J Randle
WR: C Johnson, D Thomas, J Gordan
TE J Cameron

Start- 1QB, 2RB, 2WR/TE, 1 TE,

PPR Scoring (but yardage is worth 1/2 of rushing)
1pt/25yards and 5pt/TD passing (-2 INT),
1pt/10yards and 6pt/TD rushing.
1pt/20yards and 6pt/TD receiving.

I need to see something out of Lloyd first. I stand pat and keep Jones.
