A year hanging around with the family and counting money didn't fit Lynch's style, so he's back for a 10th season in the NFL at age 31. In 2015 with Seattle, Marshawn missed nine games with an abdomen injury. In his previous four seasons, Marshawn averaged over 325 touches per season with 56 TDs over 63 games. In 2016, Oakland's RBs rushed the ball 391 times for 1,857 yards and 17 TDs while catching the ball 95 times for 843 yards and three TDs on 123 targets. The question here is if there is an on and off switch for a running back after missing one season late in his career. Lynch is a physical runner with value on the downs. Oakland rotates backs, so he won't get the full show. I know he's a better player than Latavius Murray who averaged 16.3 touches per game in 2016. This season Lynch will get over 18 touches per game while being expected to score double-digit TDs. Even with league yards per rush, Lynch should be in line for 1,300+ yards and 30+ catches. This projects to be an RB1 with a top 10 opportunity. All he needs to do is stay healthy.
