Marshawn Lynch, RB, N/A
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.

|2.06||Team Hallam - Marshawn Lynch is way too good to pass up here. He has provided RB1 numbers every year in Seattle. Easily could be a top ten fantasy pick (Comments Added Mon Aug 3 9:48:36 p.m. ET 2015)|
