Marshawn Lynch recorded 111 total yards on 20 carries and 1 catch Week 13. He neither fumbled or found the end zone. (Source: Seattle Seahawks via Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Lynch turned a few negative yardage plays into small gainers with his signature tackle-breaking ability, his most impressive run of the night was a 33 yard scamper on 3rd down in which he gave highly touted rookie Chris Borland his "welcome to the NFL" moment by busting out a icy-cold stiff-arm in the backfield. Lynch was pulled at the end of the game due to an apparent blow to the head, and was last seen having his pads removed. While Pete Carroll stated that there were no injuries to report in his post-game press conference, Lynch's health should be monitored closely headed into Week 14.

Fantasy Impact: Lynch faced a tough Cardinals run defense this week. He will face another tough run defense this Thursday, against the 49ers. Consider Lynch as a tournament play Thursday.

Fantasy Impact: Lynch is dealing with multiple ailments, but at this point in the NFL season, more RBs than not are dealing with nagging injuries. Lynch will most likely be listed as Questionable in this week's injury report, but as of now expect him to play Week 12.

By Jordan Coover, Seahawks Correspondent, Mon, Nov 17th 12:05pm EST

Marshawn Lynch once again was the main cog that kept the Seahawks offense going against the Chiefs on Sunday. He had 24 carries that went for 124 yards (a staggering 61 of those after contact), and chipped in 1 catch for 1 yard on 3 targets. Lynch failed to find the end-zone, but did force 6 missed tackles. (Source: ProFootballFocus.com)

Fantasy Impact: Marshawn has come on strong the last few weeks with at least 120 rushing yards in each of his last two contests. However he was noticeably in pain on several occasions, and stayed on the sideline during halftime to receive treatment. Lynch is a no-brainier RB1, but forward-thinking fantasy managers should pick up Christine Michael, as Lynch appears to be extremely banged up.

By Brian Tesch, Seahawks Correspondent, Sat, Nov 15th 9:31am EST

Despite practicing fully Friday, Marshawn Lynch is listed as Questionable for Week 11 with calf and rib injuries. When asked about Lynch, Pete Carroll responded "He's just banged up, in years past we've always given him a lot of consideration to get him right and he's worked hard to make sure he stays abreast of what he can do, and he practiced well today." (Source: The Fresno Bee)

Fantasy Impact: Dont be scared off by the Questionable tag, as its very similar to Tom Brady being listed as Questionable week in and week out, he's going to play. Lynch is FantasyPros consensus #4 RB this week.

According to ESPN.com, Marshawn Lynch (calf and rib) sat out Thursday's practice. Sitting out Thursday's practices seem to be a trend for the star running back. (Source: ESPN)

Fantasy Impact: This news should not deter fantasy owners to start Lynch. Daily owners who took Lynch last week, with the same injury news, were rewarded with a four td performance, at a relatively low percentage owned. This news could keep his percentage owned down. He will be counted on to carry the rock in a game that could have some weather issues. Lock Lynch into your lineups this week.

By Alex Christian, Seahawks Correspondent, Thu, Nov 6th 7:56pm EST

Marshawn Lynch (calf) was sidelined during Thursday's practice, according to profootballtalk.com. (Source: Profootballtalk.com)

Fantasy Impact: This news should not alarm fantasy owners. Lynch is often on the injury report, yet appears to be fully healthy come gametime. Daily players might want to use this news as an advantage against other players who might be scared off by the news. Lynch's usage rate has increased, and he's even catching balls out of the backfield. This only increases his value on full PPR sites that have yet to adjust his mediocre price tag. Lock Lynch into your lineups this week against the Giants.

By Brian Tesch, Seahawks Correspondent, Mon, Nov 3rd 1:30pm EST

Marshawn Lynch rushed for 67 yards and 2 touchdowns on 21 carries, and added 5 receptions for 76 yards.

Fantasy Impact: While the Seattle offense was off-beat the whole afternoon, Lynch willed his way to a touchdown in an impressive display of lower-body strength and sheer determination in the first quarter, and added another just before half. While his rushing totals may be discouraging, the fact that he's being made the staple of the game-plan is extremely encouraging for his prospects. Lynch remains an un-benchable stud for fantasy purposes.

By Michael White, Seahawks Correspondent, Mon, Oct 27th 12:56pm EDT

Lynch finished with 62 yards on 14 carries and caught one pass for 2 yards in a Seahawks road win at Carolina.

Fantasy Impact: This is the third straight sub-par game for Lynch, and it doesn't look like he's going to be the 20+ carry workhorse he's been in Seattle any time soon. Christine Michael and Robert Turbin carried the ball 6 times as did QB Russell Wilson. That is the type of distribution that could really hurt most back's value, but Lynch will be the guy the Seahawks rely on when it matters, and that's what should matter to owners. With the current state of fantasy RBs, Lynch still resides in RB1 territory, just at the lower end now.

By Brian Tesch, Seahawks Correspondent, Sun, Oct 26th 12:18pm EDT

Nfl.com's Ian Rappaport reported that Marshawn Lynch has issues communicating with upper management and coaching, Rappaport "would not be surprised if Lynch was gone after this season". (Source: NFL.com)

Fantasy Impact: On a micro level, this impacts nothing as Lynch is in line for a big day against a reeling Carolina defense. However on a macro level, this could mean Christine Michael could be eased into the offensive game-plan as the season progresses, and could have a featured role in 2015. The Seahawks also could be interested in drafting a RB in what is shaping up to be a very deep 2015 draft class. For 2014, Lynch is an RB1, next year, his role in unclear.

By Brian Tesch, Seahawks Correspondent, Mon, Oct 20th 6:16pm EDT

Marshawn Lynch had 18 carries for 53 yards and 2 catches on 2 targest for 18 yards Week 7 against the Rams. He did not score a touchdown. (Source: The Seattle Times)

Fantasy Impact: However, Lynch was hamstrung by Seattle penalties, as he had an 18 yard run, and a 15 yard touchdown scamper called back due to holding calls. Adding injury to insult, Lynch's FB, Derrick Coleman, has been lost for the foreseeable future after breaking a bone in his foot. If you have Marshawn on your squad, stay the course. He's still running well, the breaks are just not going the Seahawks way in 2014.

By Brian Tesch, Seahawks Correspondent, Sun, Oct 19th 11:30am EDT

According to sources close to New York Daily News writer Mansh Mehta, Marshawn Lynch "went off & almost didn't get on bus" when he learned of this week's Percy Harvin deal. (Source: Manish Mehta on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: While anonymous sources and Manish Mehta go together like peas and carrots, this is troubling news. If true, it could be possible that Harvin has divided the locker-room, at least temporarily. This has the potential to be a huge game for Lynch, as he has no running mate in the backfield, and has something to prove. Short term, unleash the beast in daily formats. Long term, keep an eye on the chemistry of the Seahawks, as the locker-room may be divided.

The Seattle Seahawks will go another week with backup center Stephen Schilling filling in for All-Pro Max Unger, and also have Left Tackle Russell Okung battling a labrum injury. (Source: 12thmanrising.com)

Fantasy Impact: Part of the reason for the lack of offensive continuity during Week 6 was the fact that the offensive line couldn't get on the same page, as there were multiple false starts during a home game. The offensive line will need to be up to task against a formidable Ram's D-line playing on their home turf Week 7.

By Brian Tesch, Seahawks Correspondent, Thu, Oct 16th 10:27am EDT

In his Wedensday press-conference, Seahawks Offensive Coordinator Darrell Bevell was quoted "The fantasy owners ... I'm not a fantasy owner, I don't care about anyone's (fantasy) points. But I do care about us winning the game. And Marshawn is a huge key for us winning the game. And we do -- and I -- have to do a better job of giving him the ball." (Source: NFL.com)

Fantasy Impact: In the two Seahawks losses, the Seahawks were held in the 40 play range, as the Chargers and Cowboys found ways to keep their offenses on the field for long periods of time. Bevell stated that the Seahawks want to run 60+ plays a game, but also emphasized that he must get Marshawn Lynch the ball. Look for a 15 touch floor for Marshawn the rest of the season. He is un-benchable no matter the opponent or format, and could represent a value in daily leagues this week.

By Jordan Coover, Seahawks Correspondent, Sun, Oct 12th 7:44pm EDT

Marshawn Lynch finished the game with a total of 10 carries for 61 yards. He also added 1 catch that went for just 1-yard.

Fantasy Impact: In both of Seattle's losses this year, Marshawn Lynch was given just 6 carries against the Chargers, and 10 carries against the Cowboys. In both of these games he has averaged at least 6.0 yards per carry. This makes you wonder if they should be feeding "Beast Mode" a little bit more. He is still an elite fantasy option going forward, as this does not seem to be a common occurrence.

By Michael White, Seahawks Correspondent, Tue, Oct 7th 1:23pm EDT

Lynch finished with 72 rushing yard on just 17 carries, adding another 5 receptions on 6 targets for 45 yards and yet another receiving touchdown. He did not start the game due to tightness in his back and needed extra time on the exercise bike before taking the field.

Fantasy Impact: Lynch has a history of lower back pain and he and the Seahawks' staff have done a tremendous job managing it throughout his time in Seattle. It's worth keeping an eye on, but owners should not expect it to affect his performance on the field. Performing is certainly what Lynch has done thus far as he currently sits as the number 2 scoring RB in standard formats, despite the Seahawks already having their bye in week 4. He's a top flight fantasy star every week going forward

By Michael White, Seahawks Correspondent, Tue, Sep 23rd 1:39pm EDT

Beast Mode carried the ball 26 times for 88 yards and a TD, while collecting 3 receptions for 40 yards and another TD.

Fantasy Impact: Lynch is currently the #1 scoring RB in standard leagues through 3 games. Somewhat surprisingly, he is also the #1 RB in PPR formats with 8 receptions, including 2 TDs through the air so far. Seattle is on bye this week, but with a favorable schedule over the next 2 months, Lynch figures to be among the elite players in all of fantasy football all season.

By Jordan Melchiorre, Seahawks Correspondent, Sat, Sep 20th 11:58am EDT

Pete Carroll updated Lynch's status after sitting out Wednesday's practice with a sore back. Bob Condotta writes that he practiced at 'full speed' both Thursday and Friday and is 'ready to go'. (Source: Bob Condotta, The Seattle Times)

Fantasy Impact: Beast Mode will be looking to bounce back after an underwhelming performance in Week 2. The Seahawks face the Broncos Sunday in a rematch of Super Bowl XLVIII. Denver has been solid against the run through two weeks, but Seattle's rushing attack is far superior to what the Broncos have seen thus far. Lynch will be a high-end RB1 in what should be one of the games of the week.

Fantasy Impact: While this is most likely just a rest day for Lynch, its a situation that will have to be monitored throughout the week. If Lynch can go, hes' always a must-start player. If he can't work will be split between Christine Michael and Robert Turbin.

By Brian Tesch, Seahawks Correspondent, Mon, Sep 15th 10:08pm EDT

Lynch left the field in the waning seconds before the final whistle in Week 2 when the game's outcome wasn't in doubt. What we learned today from Pete Carroll was that it wasn't out of frustration, but because he was battling "back tightness" (Source: Bob Condotta on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: In a following tweet, Condotta states that the only game Lynch has missed as a Seahawk was due to a 2011 back injury. While this is most likely nothing, its a situation to monitor. Christine Michael is going to be returning to practice this week, and can be had cheaply as Beast-Mode insurance should this turn into something bigger.

By Brian Tesch, Seahawks Correspondent, Mon, Sep 15th 1:36pm EDT

Marshawn Lynch was usage was surprisingly sparse in week 2, as he totaled 6 carries for 35 yards, and 4 catches for 27 yards and a touchdown. (Source: The Seattle Times)

Fantasy Impact: If there was a bright spot for Lynch, it was that he showed off his underrated hands out of the backfield. The enduring image of Week 2 was Marshawn relaxing on the bench, as he was only on the field for 24 of 40 offensive snaps. While the touchdown salvaged his fantasy value, this could have been a terribly disappointing day.This is most likely the low-water mark for Marshawn Lynch's workload going forward.

By Michael White, Seahawks Correspondent, Fri, Sep 5th 1:02am EDT

Beast Mode led a dominant Seahawks rushing attack with 110 yards on 20 carries, finishing off two drives with touchdowns, while adding 1 reception for 14 yards.

Fantasy Impact: Lynch proved to the fantasy world right out of the gate that any talk of his decline may have been a little premature. Lynch showed tremendous speed and lateral movement behind a road grading offensive line. Owners that were lucky enough to get Lynch toward the end of the 1st round or even into the 2nd round in recent drafts should be very encouraged by everything they saw tonight. He received his typical volume of work, a healthy offensive line dominated the Green Bay front seven and Lynch finished like a RB1, scoring twice. There should be no doubt after watching him run Thursday night that Lynch is still an elite fantasy option and should conitinue to be week in and week out.

By Brian Tesch, Seahawks Correspondent, Sat, Aug 23rd 12:52am EDT

Marshawn Lynch played the first series of the Week 3 preseason game against the Chicago Bears, he rushed for 16 yards and a TD on 3 carries.

Fantasy Impact: Lynch has never had double-digit preseason carries during his tenure as a Seahawk, so we will probably see very little of Lynch before the season. He looked like his old, bruising self tonight in limited action, especially on his final 7 yard rumble into the end-zone. With his off-field issues (hopefully) behind him, Lynch still has tremendous potential as a uniquely talented feature-back in a run-heavy scheme. Draft with confidence in the back end of round 1.

By Michael White, Seahawks Correspondent, Fri, Aug 22nd 3:16am EDT

When asked about Marshawn Lynch during Thursday's preseason press conference, Pete Carroll indicated that “It’s time for him to get some carries and get involved a little bit." (Source: Curtis Crabtree)

Fantasy Impact: After holding out for the first 8 days of training camp, Lynch is ready to debut in Friday's preseason tilt against the Bears. Carroll also noted that he "really could not be more pleased with the conditioning level that he’s (Lynch) had, the consistency of practice and his preparation has been great." Unlike previous holdouts from Chris Johnson and MJD, Lynch did not miss any important game work and seems poised to be firing on all cylinders when the Seahawks open the NFL season in two weeks. Beast Mode is currently being drafted near the end of the 1st round and provides tremendous value in that area. Owners should draft Lynch with no reservations and expect the same consistency that he's provided since he arrived in Seattle.

By Brian Tesch, Seahawks Correspondent, Thu, Aug 14th 12:11am EDT

The Bellevue Police Department has put out a statement clearing Marsahwn Lynch from any wrongdoing in a possible assault case, stating “The Bellevue Police Department has determined that Marshawn Lynch was not involved in this incident in any way. This case remains an open and active investigation. We appreciate the cooperation we have received from Mr. Lynch and the Seahawks organization during this investigation.” (Source: Curtis Crabtree on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: The three-ring circus that has followed Marshawn Lynch during this training camp may be coming to a close. The team has stated they will try and get him on the field this friday, but next week's preseason game against the Bears seems a better bet. Normally I would advise against drafting 28 year old backs coming off huge workloads and surrounded by distractions, but no one in the league has a skill-set quite like Lynch's, and he remains the feature back until further notice. He's still draftable in the 1st, and a must draft if he slips to the second round.

By Brian Tesch, Seahawks Correspondent, Wed, Aug 13th 5:57pm EDT

Head Coach Pete Carroll states that Marshawn Lynch may play in Friday night's preseason game against the Chargers. (Source: Bob Condotta on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: With so much controversy surrounding Lynch in recent weeks, it would be good to see him mentioned for something on the field, as opposed to off of it. Lynch remains a mid to low 1st round pick in all fantasy formats.

By Brian Tesch, Seahawks Correspondent, Mon, Aug 11th 3:32pm EDT

Terry Blount of ESPN.com reports "The Bellevue, Washington, Police Department said in a release that the 28-year-old Lynch was accused by an unspecified female victim over an alleged incident at a downtown Bellevue apartment unit at 2:30 a.m. PT." (Source: ESPN)

Fantasy Impact: These last few weeks have been eventful for Lynch as he went from holdout, to out of shape, to back in shape, to being involved in a possible assault investigation. As of right now Lynch has not been verified of being involved, and no arrests have been made. While the story is in its infant stages, this cannot bode well for Lynch.

By Brian Tesch, Seahawks Correspondent, Sun, Aug 10th 5:42pm EDT

Bob Condotta reports that Marshawn Lynch had his most involved practice thus-far today. (Source: Bob Condotta on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: It seems that the team is going to spare no reps getting their workhorse runner back into game shape. Condotta also stated that Lynch had "dropped some weight" and "had some hard runs". While its a small sample, it seems that after a few weeks of going "couch-mode", Marshawn Lynch is getting back to his "beast-mode" ways.

By Jordan Coover, Seahawks Correspondent, Sat, Aug 9th 2:23pm EDT

"Lynch also leads the NFL in carries since 2011, averaging almost 300 per year. The past 15 RBs who've averaged at least 300 carries in a three-year span have dropped by an average of 86.7 totes the following season, often due to injury." (ESPN.com) (Source: ESPN)

Fantasy Impact: This information leads me to believe that the Seattle Seahawks will lighten the load for Lynch in this coming season. I think that they will try to lower the amount of carries he gets as to keep him healthy until they really need him in the playoffs. If this is the case and he does get about 85 less carries, that moves him to about a late 2nd round draft pick at best for me. There is no doubt the Seahawks will use him when necessary, but they have already run him into the ground the last 3 years. So staying healthy will also be a factor for Lynch as he has a very physical run style. My advice is to stay away from drafting him until the price is right. If you do draft him, then you need to make sure and draft back up Christine Michael as I see him working in compliment with Lynch the most, and taking over in case of an injury to Lynch.

By Brian Tesch, Seahawks Correspondent, Thu, Aug 7th 5:41pm EDT

On the subject of Marshawn Lynch, Head Coach Pete Carroll stated “[Lynch] needs a lot of work to get back.” (Source: The Seattle Times)

Fantasy Impact: While this soundbyte sets off the coach-speak detector, Lynch's conditioning is a situation to monitor. If Lynch is expected to carry the load as he did in 2013, he must get into football shape. Keep tabs on the situation, as the Seahawks may give him more pre-season carries than he's used to in an effort to get him into playing shape.

By Brian Tesch, Seahawks Correspondent, Fri, Aug 1st 3:32pm EDT

Former Seahawks FB and current NFL Network Analyst Michael Robinson told Michael Fabiano that "There will be NO backfield committee in Seattle. Marshawn Lynch IS the team's featured back." (Source: Michael Fabiano on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Robinson was Lynch's former lead blocker, a former locker-room leader, and the one whom Lynch called to announce his holdout, he seems to be a very credible source on all things Marshawn. With Lynch back in camp, the focus shifts to how he will hold up after a plethora of touches during the past two years. While Lynch's skill-set is transcendent, the amount of punishment he takes is astounding. Even if there is a decline is his points per touch, the high volume of touches should be enough to keep him a low end RB1.

By Brian Tesch, Seahawks Correspondent, Thu, Jul 31st 3:22pm EDT

Adam Schefter and Adam Caplan both report that Marshawn Lynch's holdout is over and he will report within the next 24 hours. (Source: Bob Condotta on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: So much for the talk of a committee of Chirstine Michael, Robert Turbin, and Spencer Ware in Seattle. Lynch is set to return to his featured role in the Seattle backfield, and should be drafted as such. It will be interesting to see if the aforementioned Micahel, Turbin, and Ware eat into his historically huge workload in 2014.

By Michael White, Seahawks Correspondent, Thu, Jul 31st 3:19pm EDT

ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter is reporting on Twitter that Marshawn Lynch plans to end holdout and report to Seahawks Training Camp with 24 hours. (Source: Adam Schefter on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Lynch returning to camp this early should set fantasy owners at ease. Unlike recent holdouts by MJD and Chris Johnson, who reported to camp days before week one of the regular season, Lynch has a full month to get fully ready to go and won't miss any preseason games. Expect the Seahawks to still rely on Lynch heavily throughout the season, but the load should be lightened a bit. Christine Michael should see more carries and will most likely be Lynch's prime handcuff. At the age of 28, Lynch should remain a RB1 in all formats.

By Brian Tesch, Seahawks Correspondent, Tue, Jul 29th 11:41am EDT

John Clayton reports that if Marshawn Lynch does not report today (7/29), the Seahawks could ask him to repay $900,000 of his six million dollar signing bonus. (Source: ESPN)

Fantasy Impact: Lynch's holdout has been costing him $30,000 a day in fines, and if he does not report today, those fines double to $60,000. If the holdout lasts past August 5th, Lynch could lose a year of free agency, and if he misses a pre-season game, he could lose a regular season game check. While these fines are applied at the discretion of the team, Lynch stands to lose a hefty chunk of change if the holdout continues. If Lynch does not report today, it could be a sign that he is holding out for the long haul.

By Brian Tesch, Seahawks Correspondent, Fri, Jul 25th 12:08pm EDT

Mike Florio of profootballtalk.com reports that there’s a “zero percent chance” Marshawn Lynch will show up for the start of training camp without a contract that replaces the final two seasons of his four-year, $30 million contract. (Source: ProFootballTalk.com)

Fantasy Impact: Florio also states talks between Lynch and the Seahawks have been "occurring on and off for months". Lynch was just named the #1 bust candidate by rotoworld.com writer Ethan Silva, and there is massive risk in drafting Lynch at his current late 1st round ADP. Lets not forget that Lynch's skill as a power runner is unique, and he's a rare true three-down back with a potential massive workload awaiting should he report. If you can tolerate the risk of a possible lengthy holdout and believe in Lynch's skill-set; he's going to be a bargain in the 2nd/3rd round. But if you think that Lynch is going to get passed by uber-athlete Christine Michael, or experience a decline like that of Chris Johnson or Maurice Jones-Drew upon returning (if he even returns at all), avoid him at all costs.

By Brian Tesch, Seahawks Correspondent, Thu, Jul 24th 7:40pm EDT

Updating his previous tweets, Bob Condotta states "The Seahawks aren't inclined to give Lynch a new deal. So hard to tell where this goes". (Source: Bob Condotta on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Condotta then tweets that giving Lynch a new deal would set a dangerous precedent for a young roster coming to the end of their first contracts, and that the team "has taken steps to get prepared for (a) post-Lynch future with Christine Michael, etc". While Lynch is as dependable as they come on the field, the potential for this to get messy is real. Lynch has gone from as reliable an RB1 as they come, to a tremendously risky pick in what seems like record time.

By Brian Tesch, Seahawks Correspondent, Thu, Jul 24th 7:12pm EDT

Bob Condotta tweets that former Seahawks fullback Michael Robinson has broken news of a Marshawn Lynch holdout. (Source: Bob Condotta on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: That sound you hear is Marshawn Lynch dropping out of the first round in standard drafts. While Lynch hardly ever sees preseason action, this cannot be a good sign for his prospects going forward, as Christine Michael now has a shot to Wally Pipp Beast Mode. As of right now Lynch is still a first round talent in standard leagues, but a lengthy holdout could send his stock tumbling. If you're the gutsy type, see if you can get a risk-averse owner to agree to a buy-low trade in dynasty or early draft formats. However it is worth noting that Lynch pondered retirement earlier in the off-season.
