#30 vs. DET Questionable: Hamstring

After struggling all week with a hamstring injury, the Seahawks' star RB will miss the game, pushing Thomas Rawls likely into the starting role, with Fred Jackson spelling him and playing on third down. (Source: Curtis Crabtree on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: This news likely just too late for most owners who left Lynch in, as the Monday night game does not leave many alternatives still available. If you own Thomas Rawls, luckily, he could be a flex-worthy play, and could at least be a reasonable threat to score a touchdown. While Lynch was a game-time decision this week, the fact that the extraordinarily resilient Lynch was unable to be healthy this week may be yet another cause for concern going forward. It also seems reasonable to suspect that Seattle will look to the passing game more quickly, should they struggle to run the ball, meaning a bump for all receivers, and particularly Jimmy Graham near the goal line.

Fantasy Impact: It's a Monday night game, which is problematic for owners. Fred Jackson and Thomas Rawls will share duties if Lynch sits.

Fantasy Impact: If Lynch isn't able to practice Friday, it's a good sign that he's unlikely to suit up for Week 4. If that's the case, Thomas Rawls would get the start in his place, coming off a 100-yard game with limited carries. He'll be a sleeper option if Lynch isn't able to go.

Lynch is not a very appealing option at this point. He is averaging only 3.37 yards per carry and is limited with a hamstring injury. He also plays on Monday Night, so you will need Thomas Rawls as a handcuff option. I would stay clear, unless you have no better options.

After some late-week injury-report theatrics, Marshawn Lynch is reported as active versus the Bears in Week 3.
