What a beatiful trade deadline, one of the best in recent history. Key players such as Jimmy Garoppolo, Jay Ajayi, Kelvin Benjamin, etc were all shipped off to new teams. This will be a brief overview of players who endured a big change in their “stock”.
Up: Jay Ajayi
Reason: Traded out of Miami’s inefficient offense and put in one of the best offense’s in the NFL. Goal line work will improve and so will runs with real* blocking. Ajayi vaults back into the RB1/2 discussion. Not to mention, the Eagles have the easiest second half schedule for RBs.
Up: Carlos Hyde
Reason: Welcome to the Bay Jimmy Garoppolo. Garoppolo will boost the entire 49er’s including Carlos Hyde. Hyde will see more red-zone work and should be in for a strong second half. Hyde is a RB2 for the rest of the season.
