Beat writer Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times mentions Lynch could see about 2-3 less carries per game which means 32-48 less carries this season. He also notes that could mean increased workload for Christine Michael although specifically mentioning Robert Turbin is still in the picture "and it's probably hasty to completely discount Turbin in this conversation — recall how enthusiastic Carroll was about his play in the spring, noting that Turbin had battled a knee issue last season that has since been repaired." The Seahawks want to reduce wear and tear, and plan to reduce Marshawn's workload to keep him from getting injured and fresher.
Even with less carries a game, Lynch can still easily be a RB1. The Seattle offense is run-heavy and relies on establishing a run-game to free up the passing game. The real question is who will get the majority of those snaps between Turbin and Michael? Both have talent and could feasibly be interchanged throughout the year. It's anyone's best guess at this point, although it's worth mentioning Michael(RB49) has a significantly higher ADP than Turbin(RB72) in our rankings.
