Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch cleared of all wrongdoing in assault case


Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch cleared of all wrongdoing in assault case

The Bellevue, WA police department released a statement Wednesday night clearing Lynch of all wrongdoing in an alleged incident of assault and property damage. The Seahawks had previously released a statement saying the claim was "bogus," and police have now corroborated that. Lynch may see his first action of the season in the Seahawks' second preseason game versus the Chargers.

Fantasy Analysis:

Lynch's potential owners can breathe easier now, knowing the star RB will not be jailed or suspended based on the allegations. Lynch has been in Seahawks camp for a couple of weeks now, since his contract holdout ended with a new deal. He's being taken as the 10th running back in fantasy drafts, towards the end of the second round. Lynch's likely workload makes him a RB1 candidate for the upcoming season.
