2014 Outlook: Solid/Safe Pick

Last updated on Jul-14-2014 by Brad Kruse

KINDA BEASTMODE: Lynch is a volume runner who became more involved in the passing game last year. Excluding the postseason, he ran the ball 901 times over the last three years. Not many backs are asked to carry that kind of load. That's about 19 carries per game. He averaged 4.5 yards per carry and 11.7 TDs per season over that same span. With Lynch, fantasy owners are selecting a very solid running back who is likely to carry a majority of the touches once again. In OTAs, we've heard rumors of Seattle going toward more of a committee approach to get Christine Michael more involved. Over the last three years, there was an average of 119 carries given to other backs. Michael can handle the bulk of those to prove he's ready to elevate himself as a starter in 2015. Lynch is not likely to fall back too far in carries though as long as health never becomes an issue. His floor seems pretty solid. There are some downsides to Lynch; His age (younger and more athletic backs around his average draft position) and a long history of backs who wore down around this stage of their career or had to find new creative ways to stay productive. Lynch isn't at the end of his career, not yet anyway; however, the end is much closer than his beginning. The former Cal back is a safe, but low-end RB1 this year. Due to his below-average pass-receiving totals, some may prefer to grab a big-time WR1 in the second-half of the first round of redraft leagues in both standard and PPR.

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.
