Team 1 is getting screwed. AJ is easily the best player in that trade, and JJ is pretty close to McFadden or Rice. You can get more for AJ. (Do you just start 2 WRs? If you start 3 then you don't need to trade one.)

It's a 3 WR/2 RB/no flex league

Team 1 has

WR: Moss, A. Johnson, VJax
RB: JJ, Lendale, Mike Bell, Felix Jones, James Davis, Michael Bush and potential from the thin WW (Betts, Morris)

Team 2 has

WR: Boldin, Gage, Royal, Breaston, Muhammad and potential from WW (K. Washington, Garcon, M. Wallace)
RB: AP, Ray Rice, McFadden, Mendenhall, and the WW
RB: AP, Rice, McFadden,

Agreed that Team 1 is getting a raw deal. For a trade involving Andre Johnson, team 1 should not have to trade away its best running back just to get those guys. Heck, in a PPR league, I'd say just Johnson for Rice, McFadden, and Breaston is a fair trade.
