The Chiefs have agreed to a trade for Seahawks DE Frank Clark. Per ESPN's Adam Schefter, the move will send this year's 1st-round pick and a 2nd-rounder in 2020 to Seattle, with the 2 teams also swapping selections in this year's 3rd round. Beyond that, Kansas City has reportedly signed Clark to a 5-year contract worth $105.5 million, with $63.5 million of that guaranteed. The Seahawks had franchised Clark, so his payday was coming. It's a surprising move for K.C., though, given that they had already traded away franchised edge rusher Dee Ford this offseason. Clark tied Ford's 13 sacks last season (7th in the league) and ranked 8th in total QB hits (with 2 fewer than Ford -- who also tallied 3 more tackles for loss). That followed seasons of 9, 10 and 3 sacks for the 25-year-old Clark. The trade shows K.C. clearly considers Clark a better fit in new DC Steve Spagnuolo's 4-3 base than it did Ford, an OLB in the Chiefs' previous 3-4 alignment. Clark's fantasy outlook shouldn't change. Perhaps it will help that he joins a stronger D-line than the one he left. Seattle, meanwhile, should be in the market for DE help. And the Seahawks are well setup with picks 21 and 29 in a class loaded on EDGE prospects. The current roster sports 2018 rookie Rasheem Green, 4th-year DE Branden Jackson and recent 1-year signees Cassius Marsh and Nate Orchard as the top options. Green's the highest upside play for IDP owners among them.

Recent Shark Bites

Chiefs DE Frank Clark (illness) is active for today's game against the Falcons. He should be ready to use as you planned in IDP lineups.

Chiefs DE Frank Clark (illness) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Falcons. He missed practice Thursday but returned for a full Friday workout, so Clark seems to be trending toward playing.

Chiefs DE Frank Clark (knee) is active for today's game against the Panthers. The knee issue and lagging recent production make Clark a lower-level IDP play, though.

Chiefs DE Frank Clark (knee) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Panthers. Clark has seen his playing time dip the past 2 weeks vs. previous games. He sits well down our DL rankings this week, though, which makes Clark OK to use (at that level) if he's active.

Chiefs DE Frank Clark is active for today's game against the Broncos. He's fighting a stomach illness, but he played through it productively last week and should be in IDP lineups where he makes sense.
