Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch accruing fines

Marshawn Lynch @MoneyLynch has racked up $455,000 in fines related to his holdout for a new contract, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter via Twitter. Lynch, unhappy with his current deal that is set to pay him $5.5 million this year, has failed to report to Seahawks camp for the first six days of its duration. Lynch is being fined $30,000 per day of his holdout, plus a $275,500 penalty mandated by the NFL's collective bargaining agreement that was triggered Tuesday. The 28-year-old Lynch lead Seattle in rushing last season, with 301 carries for 1,257 yards.

Fantasy Analysis:

The pressure is on Lynch now. Each additional day of the holdout gives the team more leverage. The Seahawks appear to want Lynch back, but it's equally apparent they're not ready to give him a significant raise. If Lynch does return to the team, the fines will probably be forgiven. For now, Seahawks RB Christine Michael @Cmike33 is taking reps with the offensive starters, and each additional day he does so will raise his fantasy value relative to Lynch.
