Why was it the wrong decision? I need some reasoning behind it. Williams/Jones-Drew are two of the most inconsistant players for fantasy football and Ryan is worth about 10 points a week. I can't win without a qb.
Palmer is definately going to do work the rest of the season, Evans isn't bad - especially as a backup for my team, and Perry will be ok when Palmer livens up. Plus I am starting to gain confidence in Slaton for Houston.

The problem is that you are assuming they will get better. MJD is on a run-first team, is splitting carries and still has more yards than Perry. The Bengals are pass-first.
As far as Roy Williams is concerned, you did good by getting Lee Evans. The Bills are playing well and Evans is putting up good numbers.
Carson Palmer isn't playing like Carson Palmer. Although Matt Ryan isn't great, he is doing better than Palmer, if only by a little bit.
I guess it comes down to what you get points for and what you don't. You mentioned that the wideout would be a backup on your team. Unfortunately, that means whatever numbers he puts up do you no good. RB is the more important position of the two and you downgraded that position for a better bench receiver. Palmer and Ryan are basically a wash, with Ryan having better numbers. If Palmer would be used as a backup, there really isn't a reason to trade for him.
Assuming you are starting the RB position, this trade ended up hurting you. That is why it was a bad trade.
