The Chiefs have reached a 3-year deal with EDGE Alex Okafor, according to multiple reports. NFL Network reports it's worth "up to" $24 million. Okafor spent the past 2 years at DE for the Saints, totaling 8.5 sacks. There might be some upside beyond that, but he ranked no higher than 90th in Pro Football Focus' pass-rushing productivity among EDGE players either season. Okafor's a solid player but not likely to approximate the production of departed OLB Dee Ford. His shift to OLB in the Chiefs' 3-4 front further knocks his IDP value.

Saints DE Alex Okafor tore his right Achilles' tendon in Sunday's win over Washington. That takes as well-performing edge player off New Orleans' surprising defense. HC Sean Payton refused to go into specifics on a replacement plan, but rookie DE Trey Hendrickson looks like the primary beneficiary. He has put in his 4 largest snap shares over the past 4 weeks and presents some sleeper potential for deep IDP leagues.
