If I were you, I would cut first and get the bf lower before you decide to bulk, because adding size means adding more fat as well, and you will look fat more than big. JMO though. If you want to figure out calorie needs, use the Harris Benedict formula. Do a search, there are many threads in here that will help you out.

200lbs x 11 = 2200
2200 x .75 (being very active) = 1650
2200 + 1650 = 3850 calories (MBR)
add 500 for bulking = 4350 calories
Got it from this thread.
