Niners, Chiefs Swap Jenkins, Baldwin

What the…?

This never happens in the NFL! You never see this type of trade go down, but with each transaction, there are fantasy implications. The Chiefs traded Baldwin their 2011 first-round pick, to the 49ers for AJ Jenkins, a 2012 first-round pick. They are both similar in that they have never caught on in the NFL.

The problem is…I’m not sure how this trade benefits either team.

Following this trade, Baldwin is, at best, the Niner’s third WR behind Anquan Boldin and Austin Collie. If he can stay healthy, Collie is simply outstanding, and I even think that Kyle Williams can take the third WR role from Baldwin. Not a fan of Baldwin in fantasy.

Same with Jenkins who can’t get it together. I’m not a fan of him either. He’ll battle Donnie Avery for the second WR spot, and in my opinion, lose that battle. The Chiefs offense is based around two guys: Dwayne Bowe and Jamaal Charles.

This trade made no sense to me, and both guys are avoidable. Stay away, owners.
