2015 Outlook: Stud (low risk)

Last updated on Nov-17-2015 by Shawn Childs


UPDATE (11/17): Beast Mode has been battling through injuries all season. After nine games he's currently ranked outside of the top 30 Fantasy running backs. Only once on the season has he rushed for 100 yards and has only punched in three TDs. He has only appeared in seven of nine games, but still only has 417 yards on the ground. Injuries and an awful offensive line has played a major role in his shortcomings, nevertheless, that offers little solace to Fantasy owners. If the Seahawks are going to get their season turned around, it's going to be on his shoulders.

Over the last four years, Lynch has averaged 309 touches and has scored 46 TDs in 63 games. Seattle has even leaned on him in the passing game over the past two seasons (73 catches, 683 yards, six receiving TDs). Marshawn has six 1,000-yard campaigns on his resume. Last year, including the playoffs, Lynch was a much better player at home, scoring 13 of his 19 TDs there. He had seven 100-yard rushing games in his 19 starts. Marshawn finished with fifth-most RB snaps (728). In PPR leagues over the past four years, Lynch has finished no worse than sixth in positional scoring. The Seahawks rewarded him with a two-year, $24 million extension in March. Marshawn is a rock in an offense that is built around his skill set. With growth in Seattle's offense, Lynch would have even greater upside. His O-line has plenty of question marks, and Wilson is going to steal some of his rushing TDs. Lynch should gain at least 1,600 total yards with a dozen or so scores. His baseline should be about 270 Fantasy points in PPR leagues.

Latest Update

Nov-25-15 Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch undergoes sports-hernia surgery

Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch has undergone sport-hernia surgery. It has been reported that the hope is he'll be back in 4-5 weeks, however, that does appears to be an overly optimistic return date. There is a serious chance his season is over.

Fantasy Analysis:

With Lynch out, Rawls is a must-add and a very solid start until or if Lynch returns. Last week Rawls went off for over 200 yards. While Rawls is solid, it's not fair to expect him to be Beast Mode. Gut feeling, it may be safe to drop Lynch.

2.07 Gridiron Experts - @MikeRigz - I was surprised by the comments after my selection of Marshawn Lynch. Apparently Dr.Roto was speaking about him earlier in the day and made a strong case that Lynch could be a potential bust in 2014. I don?t see it; Beastmode should have another strong season, especially since he?s gaining traction as an RB that can catch passes out of the backfield from time to time. Last season Lynch had 36 receptions for 316 yards and 2 scores. Add that to his huge 1200+ yards and 12TD?s on the ground and he?s a nice add as my RB1. Just in case you do think Lynch?s going to crumble into a million rainbow colored skittle pieces, check out my later picks.
