Bowe/Wallace for Ward?

Just finished my auction draft...my first using KUBIAK. Here's my roster:

QB Matt Schaub, Hou QB
RB Adrian Peterson, Min RB
RB Jamaal Charles, KC RB
RB/WR Matt Forte, Chi RB
WR Percy Harvin, Min WR
WR DeSean Jackson, Phi WR
WR/TE Dwayne Bowe, KC WR
TE Antonio Gates, SD TE
D/ST Vikings D/ST, Min D/ST
K Stephen Gostkowski, NE K
Bench Donald Brown, Ind RB
Bench Mike Wallace, Pit WR
Bench Ben Roethlisberger*, Pit QB
Bench Johnny Knox, Chi WR
Bench Leon Washington, Sea RB
Bench Darren Sproles, SD RB
Bench Laurent Robinson, StL WR

I have an offer to trade Bowe and Wallace for Hines Ward and what is effectively Devery Henderson (or a WR of comparable value off waivers). My strength is obviously my RBs...and the trade for Ward would obviously give me better starters at WR. Scoring is:

1pt/10yds receiving.
6pt/TD receiving.
1pt/40yds punt/kick return.

What are your thoughts on this trade?

I'd do it, even with Dixon starting. Harvin has value in a return league, and you weren't going to use Wallace anyway, so you basically upgrade from Bowe to Ward.
