Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch was seen swerving through traffic and nearly collided with two separate vehicles before he was pulled over at approximately 4 a.m. Saturday. The arresting officer said Lynch showed "objective signs of intoxication" and failed field sobriety tests. This isn't the first time that Lynch has had driving issues. Back in 2008 he hit a pedestrian outside a bar and then drove off.
File this away under the 'when it rains, it pours' category when considering drafting Lynch in your 2012 fantasy drafts. Marshawn got his nice contract, was coming off of an excellent fantasy campaign and was creeping towards the top 10 in the RB rankings. That is all gone now as he will be facing a suspension from the league for his latest transgression. Lynch just can't get out of his own way and has failed to show the maturity that it takes to be a premier NFL talent. Many of us had been doubting his ability to finally put together back-to-back productive fantasy seasons and this only reinforces those doubts. Go ahead and drop Lynch down your draft boards and give rookie Robert Turbin a little boost. Ultimately, I have a suspicion that the Seahawks may be looking up Cedric Benson's number on their rolodex.
