Leon Washington

Leon Washington | RB

2011 Fantasy Football Outlook: The Seahawks wisely locked Leon Washington up for a four year deal this off-season after he proved to recover well from his nasty leg injury in 2009. It will be interesting to see how many touches Washington will get as more of a change of pace back as Justin Forsett fills that type of role already.

As long as Forsett and Marshawn Lynch are around, Washington’s fantasy value will be felt with the occasional touchdown for the Seahawks Defense in fantasy football leagues, and not for his ability to run.

2010 Preview

Leon Washington was traded off to the Seattle Seahawks in April after the Jets failed to think he would return to previous form. Look for Washington to make a big impact in special teams this year but he won’t be a great fantasy option.

2010 Fantasy Football Outlook

2009 Fantasy Year In Review: Leon Washington had himself a very productive season in 2008, and it looked like he might take on more work last season. In the end, Thomas Jones was still the teams main runner and Washington suffered a horrible compound leg fracture in October. The injury ended Washington’s season and may jeopardize his explosiveness for the rest of his career.

2010 NFL Fantasy Football Player Rankings: The Jets were concerned that Washington wouldn’t return the same player post injury, and they traded him to the Seahawks. Coach Pete Carroll as since admitted it will be awhile before he knows if Washington will have his explosion back or not in June.

At one time it was thought Washington would start training camp on the PUP list but in June his is working out, and he may be ready to practice in camp. While this is a good sign in his recovery, he still has a ways to go before he is at full strength. With his physical concerns, he really isn’t in a position to threaten Justin Forsett and Julius Jones in the running rotation.

It would be a victory just to see Washington get back to playing in a special teams’ role and getting occasional work on offense for the 2010 season.

Assets

- Explosive When Healthy
