Gates for Bell and Shockey

Gates for Bell and Shockey

I've got Antonia Gates and someone is offering me Mike Bell (NO RB) and Jeremy Shockey for him. I need another RB.

My team pre-trade:

QB: Romo
RB:Michael Turner
RB:Ahmad Bradshaw
FLEX:Ted Ginn
WR:Boldin
WR: Kevin Walter
TE: Gates
D: Dolphins
K: Robbie Gould

Bench:
Hasselbeck
Norwood
Burleson
Brent Celek (TE)
Duckett
Pierre Garcon
Davone Bess

(it's a 16 team league, that's one reason why the depth is pathetic.)

So what do you think? Is Bell going to be the #1 back long enough to make this worth it? Is Shockey going to have a good season? I'm inclined to not make the trade but I do need another back.
I wouldnt do it. Shockey is a disappointment every year and Bell will be a backup soon. Keep Gates.

yeah, that's what I was thinking. Always good to get confirmation from the 'zone.

No way. Don't do it
Pierre Thomas will most likely be out for one week. Mike Bell will only see some action week 1 while Thomas nurses his injury.

Bell is virtually worthless. You're giving up too much for a backup RB in a 3-RB rotation.
