2015 Outlook: Stud (low risk)Last updated on Aug-20-2015 by Shawn Childs
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.

Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch was not able to practice again on Friday. He has been sidelined all week with a hamstring injury and is expected to be a true game-time decision on Monday night. Beast Mode was a game-time decision Week 3 with a calf injury and was made active. He only managed six carries before he was forced out of the game. If he can't go, Thomas Rawls and Fred Jackson will handle the load.Fantasy Analysis:
This is a really tough position for Fantasy owners to be in. It's not easy to bench Lynch if he's active. However, the fact that he plays on Monday night complicates things. If Lynch does play, he almost certainly won't be 100 percent. If you don't have him handcuffed, you almost can't start him as of now. You may be better off plugging in another back for him. There are a lot of good options at running back this week. Guys like T.J. Yeldon, Karlos Wiiliams and Latavius Murray or PPR guys Danny Woodhead, Darren Sproles and Shane Vereen.

|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.|
