I think you are overpaying for Foster... I would offer Cruz and McFadden for Foster.

I don't see you getting Foster for anything less than Green and McFadden. McFadden has been an injury dud where Foster has been ol' faithful with the TD's. If you can get Foster for 1 player you are going to be keeping I think it is a good move. You might be over paying a little but... meh. Unless your league is very WR heavy you sure could use a RB to keep and Foster is at the top of the list aside from maybe AP.

I originally offered McFadden, Cruz, and Nicks. He countered with this. I'm leaning towards doing it, but not yet sure.

The trade might help you this year, but I think you lose over time. In many startup dynasty drafts, Green is a top-3 overall pick. While your league is a keeper and not a dynasty league, this gives you some idea of what the masses think about Green's long-term value. Green + Marshall should be a fantastic WR combo for you for years to come.

Also... If you don't make the trade, I would keep Nicks over Cruz and then I would draft RB heavily in the first several rounds of your upcoming draft.

I'd keep Green. I think Foster loses a lot of value after this year, while Green could be a stud for a decade. I would also draft Green over Foster in a dynasty format, so I don't think you should have to add Mcfadden if you are making the trade
