Description: Seahawks halfback Marshawn Lynch will plead guilty to reckless driving. The charge stems from a 2012 DUI arrest. SOURCE: Terry Blount, ESPN
Insight: His punishment will be a fine and two years probation. Lynch's lawyer believes he'll be able to avoid suspension by the NFL. Assuming that's the case, Lynch (1,257 rushing yards, 12 TD in 2013) should be a top-ten selection in all fantasy leagues this summer.

Description: Seattle running back Marshawn Lynch sat out Wednesday's practice but it looks like he's just getting some extra rest.
Insight: Lynch has run for 249 yards and three touchdowns in his two playoff games this season. He's still a fantasy "beast" and the Super Bowl won't be any different. The Seahawks will want to keep the ball out of Peyton Manning's hands and the best way to do that is with Lynch rushing at least 25 times.
 
12/15/2013 12:05:00 PM
Description: Seattle running back Marshawn Lynch sat out some practice time with a shoulder injury, but he's active for Sunday as expected.
Insight: He's a fantasy "beast" with 1,042 yards rushing, 234 receiving and 12 touchdowns. That shouldn't change in Week 15.
 
12/12/2013 2:30:00 PM
Description: Seattle running back Marshawn Lynch sat out Wednesday's practice with a shoulder injury.
Insight: We don't think its too serious, but continue to watch to make sure he gets in at least one practice this week. He's a fantasy "beast" with 1,042 yards rushing, 234 receiving and 12 touchdowns.
 
11/10/2013 6:26:00 PM
Description: Seattle half back Marshawn Lynch generated 145 yards on the ground Sunday in an easy win over Atlanta.
Insight: He also added his eighth touchdown of the season. The 27-year-old is on pace for 1,394 rushing yards this year, which would be the second-highest output of his career.
 
10/30/2013 7:59:00 PM
Description: Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch did not practice Wednesday due to a knee injury, according to Liz Mathews of 710 ESPN Seattle.
Insight: Seattle coach Pete Caroll did not mention any knee issues with Lynch during his Wednesday press conference. Lynch often doesn't practice on Wednesday's anyway for rest, but when that happens he's listed as NIR (not injury related).
 
10/15/2013 8:20:00 PM
Description: Seahawks halfback Marshawn Lynch didn't practice Tuesday due to a hip injury.
Insight: He missed practice time last week for the same reason but had 155 total yards and two touchdowns Sunday against the Titans. He's in no danger of missing Thursday's game against the Cardinals.
 
10/13/2013 7:42:00 PM
Description: Seahawks halfback Marshawn Lynch steamrolled the Titans on Sunday (21 carries, 77 yards, 2 TD, 4 rec, 78 yds).
Insight: It wasn't one of Lynch's more efficient efforts (just 3.7 ypc) but his two touchdowns are sure to have fantasy owners smiling. Week in and week out, Lynch continues to be one of fantasy's most consistent point producers at the running back position.
 
10/13/2013 2:53:00 PM
Description: Seattle running back Marshawn Lynch (hip) is active for Week 6.
Insight: Lynch's fantasy owners can breathe easy. He's a must start. Lynch has carried the ball exactly 17 times in four of five games this season.
 
10/12/2013 8:53:00 PM
Description: Ignore the "questionable" label attached to Marshawn Lynch (hip). The Seahawks halfback is all systems go for Sunday's contest against Tennessee.
Insight: Well, at least that's what ESPN's Adam Schefter is telling us. Lynch hasn't faced the Titans since 2009 (37 yards on nine rushes in that game).
 
10/11/2013 5:52:00 PM
Description: Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch didn't practice Friday due to a hip injury and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Titans, but coach Pete Carroll indicated that Lynch should be able to play. SOURCE: Brady Henderson, 710 ESPN Seattle
Insight: Lynch has 410 rushing yards and 96 receiving yards with four total touchdowns this season, but three of his scores came in Week 2. The running back should be able to play Sunday against Tennessee and is a RB1.
 
9/29/2013 6:14:00 PM
Description: Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch has alternated good and bad games this season, and Week 4 was one of his good ones. He had 98 yards and a touchdown on 17 carries and also caught three passes for 45 yards against Houston.
Insight: Lynch already has eight catches this season. He came into Sunday's game averaging just 3.4 yards per carry, but he broke free for a 43-yard run against the Texans.
 
7/12/2013 3:25:00 PM
Description: Seattle running back Marshawn Lynch's 2012 DUI arrest is still out there, but with a Dec 27 court date and the regular season ending on Dec 29, fantasy owners should not have to worry about him missing any time because of it.
Insight: Lynch had a monster season in 2012-13 with 1,590 rushing yards, 10 100-yard games and 12 total touchdowns. Fantasy owners can handcuff Robert Turbin in case of injury, but it appears they won't have to worry about a suspension.
 
7/6/2013 2:45:00 PM
Description: Seattle running back Marshawn Lynch still has a 2012 DUI arrest hanging over him, but it's appearing more and more likely that the case won't be decided until late 2013 or 2014, according to a Tacoma News Tribune report.
Insight: Lynch had a monster season in 2012-13 with 1,590 rushing yards, 10 100-yard games and 12 total touchdowns, so fantasy owners hope the outcome doesn't get decided until after this season is over. Fantasy owners might want to handcuff Robert Turbin just in case, but it might not be necessary.
 
1/13/2013 7:11:00 PM
Description: Seattle halfback Marshawn Lynch struggled in Sunday's playoff loss to Atlanta.
Insight: Lynch had recorded five straight 100-yard games before Sunday's lackluster performance (46 yards and a lost fumble). Despite his struggles, Lynch was still able to find the end zone on Sunday. He's now scored at least once in three of his four career playoff games.
 
1/11/2013 6:00:00 PM
Description: Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch has been dealing with a sprained foot according to head coach Pete Carroll.
Insight: The injury won't be enough to keep Lynch from playing this weekend. Lynch is having the best season of his career and we'd expect him to have another strong game Sunday against the Falcons.
 
Hot1/11/2013 12:59:00 PM
Description: Seattle running back Marshawn Lynch is probable for Sunday's matchup with Atlanta. Although he missed Wednesday practice that has been the usual plan for Lynch this season.
Insight: Lynch wasn't even mentioned by coach Pete Carroll while doing his Wednesday injury recap. Lynch has been unstoppable this season and the 132-yard day against Washington in the first round of the playoffs was just the latest chapter. He's a must start against a Falcons' run defense yielding 123.1 ypg.
 
Hot1/6/2013 9:01:00 PM
Description: Seattle halfback Marshawn Lynch tied a Seahawks playoff record by rushing for 132 yards Sunday in a win against the Redskins.

1/6/2013 9:33:00 AM
Description: Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch continues to be listed on the Seahawks' injury report for a bad back, but we have no doubt that he's be ready to go into full "beast mode" when the whistle blows on Sunday in Washington.
Insight: Lynch rushed for a career-high 1,590 yards with 11 touchdowns this season and had either 85 yards rushing or a touchdown in 14 of 16 games. If it hadn't been for Adrian Peterson's remarkable season, many would have been talking MVP candidate for Lynch.
