The Indianapolis Colts acquired defensive end/linebacker Yannick Ngakoue from the Las Vegas Raiders for cornerback Rock Ya-Sin.

What does it give the Indianapolis Colts
The Colts had a need for a true pass-rushing specialist, so Ngakoue should fit the bill nicely. He is not as consistent as teams would like him to be, which explains why he moves on quite often.

What does it give the Las Vegas Raiders
The Raiders will replace Ngakoue with veteran free agent Chandler Jones. Ya-Sin fills a huge void in the Vegas secondary, so this trade should help both franchises involved.

Fantasy impact
Ngakoue should continue to be a decent source of sacks, so he might be an option in some IDP leagues. Ya-Sin is less of a fantasy option, since cornerbacks are almost exclusively dependent on interceptions.
