Desmond King agrees to one-year deal with Texans

Desmond King is signing with the Texans on a one-year, $3.5 million deal, according to Adam Schefter.

Fantasy Impact

King was Pro Football Focus' 40th-ranked cornerback last season. He allowed less than 50 yards in coverage in all but three of a possible 15 games with the Titans and Chargers. The latter traded him to the former midseason.

Desmond King II traded to Titans for a sixth-round pick

The Tennessee Titans have traded a sixth-round pick in exchange for Chargers DB Desmond King.

Fantasy Impact

King will help boost an underachieving Tennessee defense. Additionally, he'll help as a punt returner in all likelihood. The 25-year-old was an All-Pro in 2018.

Desmond King II being shopped by the Chargers

ESPN NFL insider Adam Schefter is reporting that the Chargers are actively shopping former All-Pro DB Desmond King II.

Fantasy Impact

King II was named to the Associated Press All-Pro team in 2018 as a first-team DB and a second-team punt returner. There were rumblings in early April that King II could be moved prior to the NFL Draft, but nothing materialized. At just 25 years old, a lot of NFL teams should be interested in a player of his pedigree.

Desmond King could be traded by Chargers?

Daniel Popper of The Athletic writes "there's a chance" that the Chargers could trade cornerback Desmond King.

Fantasy Impact

King was All-Pro as a slot corner in 2018 before regressing last season. The Chargers also signed Chris Harris in free agency this off-season, which bumps King from a starting role. Perhaps the 25-year-old will be used as part of a draft day trade. King is set to enter the final year of his rookie contract.

Desmond King records career-high 2.5 sacks

Desmond King had himself a day against the Dolphins, racking up three solo tackles, one assisted tackle, one TFL, 2.5 sacks, two QB hits, and a forced fumble.

Fantasy Impact

Seeing that King has never finished with more than a single sack in a game, this result seems like more of an anomaly rather than a trend. He'll try to back up this performance next Sunday against the Broncos.
