How to get McFadden

10 team, standard yahoo league. Non PPR.

I'm ok with my team but want to try and get McFadden. Would Murray+Bush be too much? I can maybe try Murray+T.Young or Collie). Any thoughts would help. Ideally I'd also want to get Tate from another owner to handcuff Foster

QB: Romo, Locker
RB: Foster, D. Murray || R. Bush, S. Ridley, Mendenhall
WR: Jones, Harvin, Lloyd || D. Thomas, Collie, Young
Flex: K.Smith
TE: Rudolph
K: Akers

I know this isn't a popular opinion..but I personally like Murray over McFadden this year. I feel Murray is going to be healthy and very productive the entire year, while I have less confidence McFadden will stay healthy long enough to show his significant upside. I know Murray got injured too, so my opinion is a complete crapshoot. McFadden just has a more proven track record of going down.

I diasgree the Raven. I'd give up Murray and Bush/Collie or Young for McFadden, preferably McFadden and one of the WRs.

Injury potential exists for both Murray and McFadden, but McFadden has significantly higher upside in a team that is questionable at QB. Dallas is going to passing a lot more than Oakland with Romo and Dez and Miles. McFadden is clearly going to be the most important piece of the Oakland offense.

Besides, one decent half-year doesn't convince me with Murray belongs high up there.

I would do this deal without hesitation and accept the injury risk. The upside is tremendously one-sided here.
