Seahawks | Leon Washington acquired from Jets

The New York Jets have traded RB Leon Washington and a seventh-round draft choice to the Seattle Seahawks for a fifth-round, No. 139 overall, draft choice, reports Adam Schefter, of ESPN.

Fantasy Tip: Washington signed his one-year tender, but the Seahawks still gave up very little to get a player who should serve as the bright lightning to draft day acquisition LenDale White's thunder. Seattle's swaps don't leave Julius Jones and Justin Forsett in a very good fantasy position. Expect at least one of them to be gone. Washington has serious No. 3 fantasy back potential, at least in PPR leagues, as long as Seattle uses him in the passing game. His recovery from a compound fracture in his right leg will tell the tale, so monitor his offseason progress.
