Does the Jerome Harrison for Mike Bell trade improve either's FF value?

Cleveland just traded Jerome Harrison to Philly for Mike Bell. Right now, both players are available in my league (Harrision is still on waivers though).

So does this trade do anything to help either player's fantasy value? I know Hillis has been battling an injury, so does that make Bell more valuable than he was in Philly? And I always felt like Harrison was under used in Cleveland. So will Philly give him more carries?

Obviously, it's all guess work at this point. But I'm curious how others feel about this.
I think Bells value goes up significantly. I`d guess Bell would be used a lot more while Harrison gets less touches than he did in Cle. Bell may even get a chance to start. I`m not taking a shot at Hillis but he isnt a prototypical RB. He is more of a short yardage specialist. IDK how it will work out but I own Bell in my money league so I hope he gets a lot more work obviously.

Hillis and McCoy are established.

Neither Bell or Harrison is worth owning until McCoy or Hillis get hurt

Not sure how you guys can say Hillis is established. He was brought into cle just a couple weeks b4 the season started and he has only started a handful of games in his career. Not what I would call an established guy by any means.



Coach Eric Mangini said that the Browns' motivation for acquiring Bell in exchange for fellow RB Jerome Harrison, is that he is a better fit for the team's downhill run schemes, the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

Spin: In terms of playing time, Mangini seems to view Bell initially as a complement to Peyton Hills, but the implication is that he was brought in because he can do many of the things the bruising Hillis does. With Hillis banged up this week, but likely to play, Bell may be worked in slowly, but he is an injury away from a big role in an offense that plays to his strengths. "I think as Peyton's role has expanded and the things he's done, the plays we have for him have expanded and Mike Bell's a guy we liked in free agency and really complements and is more a fit for the plays we have for Peyton," Mangini said.

And Harrison is kinda like McCoy, so it seems like both teams wanted more of the same rather than diversity in their back field.

Sorta like us I guess.
