Description: Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch did not score in Week 11 after four touchdowns in Week 10.
Insight: Lynch did rush 24 times for 124 yards, but the Seahawks, like every other NFL team this season, did not score on the ground against the Chiefs. Lynch remains a RB1.

Description: Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch (calf) returned to practice on Friday, but is being listed as questionable for Week 11.
Insight: He had missed Wednesday's and Thursday's practices, and coach Pete Carroll admitted Lynch is "banged up." However, we feel he will be a full-go on Sunday, as we have him as our fourth ranked running back for Week 11.

Description: Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch exploded for 140 yards and four touchdowns.
Insight: Lynch had much of his offensive line back in front of him and it showed. There were holes to run through and Lynch took full advantage. Lets hope it continues.
 
11/9/2014 3:16:00 PM
Description: Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch is "ready to roll" against the Giants this Sunday.
Insight: Lynch was dealing with a minor calf injury, but was never in doubt for this one. He has much of his offensive line back in front of him and should have a big game.
 
11/7/2014 4:34:00 PM
Description: Seahawks coach Pete Carroll told ESPN Seattle reporter Liz Mathews that running back Marshawn Lynch is "ready to roll" against the Giants this Sunday.
Insight: Lynch sat out Thursday's practice, but Carroll reassured fantasy owners he will play. Lynch is The Sports Network's No. 1 running back for Week 10, so make sure he is in the lineup.
 
11/3/2014 9:44:00 AM
Description: Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch was a major part of the offense against Oakland and led the team with 26 touches.
Insight: He had 21 carries for 67 yards and a pair of touchdowns and caught all five targets for 76 yards. Now that's what we like to see from our stud running back.
 
10/26/2014 6:33:00 PM
Description: Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch had a subpar day on Sunday.
Insight: He had 14 carries for 62 yards, and was unable to find the end zone. Lynch has failed to reach the 100-yard plateau on the ground in each game since Week 1.
 
10/13/2014 10:20:00 AM
Description: At least Seahawks star running back Marshawn Lynch saw 20 touches today.
Insight: He only totaled 71 yards and no touchdowns, but the workload was more in tune with what fantasy owners expect.
 
10/13/2014 10:20:00 AM
Description: Once again the Seahawks forgot they have a stud running back in their backfield.
Insight: Lynch saw just 10 carries for 61 yards and caught one ball for one yard. That's not enough opportunities for one of the game's best running backs.
 
Hot9/22/2014 11:22:00 AM
Description: The Seahawks remembered their stud running back, marshawn Lynch, Sunday after ignoring him in a loss to San Diego.
Insight: Lynch received 29 touched, totaled 128 yards and two touchdowns and the Seahawks got back into the win column. Coincidence ... I think not.
 
9/14/2014 7:38:00 PM
Description: Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch carried the ball just six times, for 36 yards, but at least he helped fantasy owners with a touchdown reception.
Insight: It's hard to believe Seattle used their best weapon so little. It's been three years since Lynch was used so infrequently. They lost that game in Week 2 of 2011, too.
 
Hot9/4/2014 11:43:00 PM
Description: Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch opened the 2014 NFL regular season with a bang - rushing for 110 yards and two scores.
Insight: Lynch is tough enough to bring down, but when the Seahawks used Percy Harvin as a decoy it frequently left Lynch with plenty of running room.
 
8/11/2014 8:37:00 PM
Description: According to the Seattle Times, police officers are investigating Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch after receiving an "allegation of an assault and personal property damage" from a female victim at an apartment in Bellevue, Washington.
Insight: Police said the alleged incident was reported to have occurred Sunday morning, but "no domestic violence or sexual assault was involved in the allegation." Lynch has had several run-ins with the law since he came into the NFL in 2007 -- his driver's license was revoked in 2008 for a hit-and-run incident, he was arrested during a traffic stop for having a gun in his trunk in 2009 and he was arrested again in 2012 for suspicion of DUI. He was suspended the first three games of 2009 by NFL commissioner Roger Goodell for the second incident.
 
8/10/2014 8:37:00 PM
Description: According to the Seattle Times, Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said running back Marshawn Lynch is "in really good shape."
Insight: Lynch skipped OTAs, minicamp and the first week of training camp, so it's good to see he's remained in shape. Carroll said the running back has dropped a little weight. Lynch was reportedly the most active he has been in camp during Sunday's practice. While Christine Michael is a threat to steal carries, Lynch is still an RB1.
 
7/31/2014 7:57:00 PM
Description: According to ProFootballTalk.com, the Seahawks agreed to raise Marshawn Lynch's base salary for 2014 from $5 million to $6 million and give him a $500,000 signing bonus.
Insight: Lynch had no leverage to get a new contract, but he ended up getting something out of his holdout. That should tell fantasy owners that the Seahawks still consider Lynch a big part of the equation and wanted to get him in camp as quickly as possible. Lynch isn't going to see 337 touches again like he did last year, but he'll still be heavily involved. Three hundred touches plus all the goal-line work will keep Lynch in the RB1 group.
 
7/31/2014 3:30:00 PM
Description: Seattle running back Marshawn Lynch has decided to end his holdout, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN.
Insight: Lynch had absolutely no leverage to get a new contract. He's already set to earn $5.5 million in salary and bonuses this season and the Seahawks have potential star Christine Michael behind him. Lynch isn't going to see 337 touches again like he did last year, but he'll still be heavily involved. Three hundred touches plus all the goal-line work will keep Lynch in the RB1 group.
 
7/24/2014 7:40:00 PM
Description: Seattle running back Marshawn Lynch is now expected to hold out while he seeks a new contract.
Insight: Sounds like Lynch got a look at the Jamaal Charles deal and wants to get a bigger and better deal too. Lynch has been worked hard the past three seasons (901 carries) and is smart to want to get a deal done now before anything changes.
 
7/16/2014 4:25:00 PM
Description: Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times predicts Marshawn Lynch will still be the focal point of the Seahawks' offense in 2014 but that he'll lose a few carries per game to Christine Michael.
Insight: Lynch averaged 18.8 carries per game last season and Condotta predicts he'll be around 15-16 this year which will put him at 240-256 for the entire season. Lynch will still get all the goal-line work so he shouldn't drop out of the first round in fantasy drafts.
 
6/17/2014 6:24:00 PM
Description: Seattle halfback Marshawn Lynch arrived to mandatory minicamp Tuesday, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL.com.
Insight: Lynch didn't show up to voluntary OTAs because he wants to rework his contract and there was even a report from Rapoport last week that he was mulling retirement. According to ESPN, Lynch believes the Seahawks will negotiate with him in good faith because he showed up to minicamp. With Seattle OC Darrell Bevell mentioning that he wanted to use a committee at running back this season and a contract dispute looming, Lynch could be a riskier pick than expected in fantasy leagues.
 
6/12/2014 8:44:00 PM
Description: Seattle halfback Marshawn Lynch isn't happy about his contract situation and is considering sitting out next week's mandatory mini-camp.
Insight: NFL Network's Ian Rapoport even said retirement could be an option for Lynch. This would be a massive blow to the Seahawks and fantasy owners alike. Lynch logged 1,257 yards on 301 carries last season while leading Seattle to its first Super Bowl. He's only 28.
