Fantasy Football: NFL Trade Deadline Quick Hits

With the trade deadline come and gone, now's a good time to assess the biggest fantasy implications. We've seen how Christian McCaffrey is already working out for the 49ers. Let's look at the players that have yet to suit up with their new squads.

Kadarius Toney, WR, Giants to Chiefs: He drew comparisons to Tyreek Hill early on and if he can be even half of what Hill was in Andy Reid's offense, Toney could pay off big time. He says he's healthy and has had the bye week to prepare for his debut with the Chiefs.

Chase Claypool, WR, Steelers to Bears: This is interesting and makes Justin Fields a bit more attractive. It hurts Darnell Mooney, of course. Claypool has a lot of talent and could thrive if Fields can build chemistry with his new teammate. This move also increases George Pickens' value with Pittsburgh.

T.J. Hockenson, TE, Lions to Vikings: He moves from the worst team in the division to the best. Hockenson should be the top tight end even when Irv Smith is completely healthy. It could turn into a situation where Justin Jefferson, Adam Thielen and Hockenson all thrive.

Nyheim Hines, RB, Colts to Bills: He joins a dominating Bills squad, but they've got Devin Singletary playing pretty well in a backseat role to Josh Allen as far as the ground attack goes. Hines is kind of like another version of Singletary, which may be what the Bills want as they shipped off Zack Moss.

Jeff Wilson, RB, 49ers to Dolphins: Wilson joins fellow former 49er Raheem Mostert, and any fantasy player familiar with Mostert knows his backup usually gets a run of play. Wilson definitely has more life behind Mostert than McCaffrey.

Chase Edmonds, RB, Dolphins to Broncos: After losing Javonte Williams to injury, it's been an odd mix of Melvin Gordon, Latavius Murray and Mike Boone for Denver. Now with Boone on IR, Edmonds will add to the depth and competition for touches, with a chance to take the lead role.
