Seahawks trade for Bills RB Marshawn Lynch

The Seattle Seahawks have traded for Bills RB Marshawn Lynch for a 4th round pick in 2011 and a conditional 2012 pick.

Fantasy Impact: 

The Seahawks bolster their run game in a somewhat surprising move this afternoon. Most were speculating Lynch to the Packers or Eagles, but Seattle stepped up with an offer. Obviously not content with Justin Forsett as their feature back, Lynch should take over that role with Justin Forsett handling 3rd down duties. Leon Washington is being used primarily in the return game.

The Seahawks have released Julius Jones and it appears Green Bay will stick with Brandon Jackson and John Kuhn. In Buffalo, C.J. Spiller and Fred Jackson are moving back into flex territory.
