Fantasy Impact:

There had been speculation last week that Houston could be traded but there apparently wasn’t enough interest from other teams. He was scheduled to make $15.25 million in base salary in 2019, and to cost $21.1 million against the cap. The move will result in a $7.1 million cap charge for Kansas City. Houston recorded 11 sacks in 14 games (including postseason) during the 2018 season. He has spent his entire eight year career with the Chiefs since they selected him in the third round of the 2011 draft. His best season came when he recorded a league-best 22 sacks in 2014.
