The #1 back in the NFL and fantasy should be at the top of everyone's list right now. He's started the season with four straight 100 yard games and has at least one touchdown in each contest.
Lynch should be the focal point against Washington this week, expect a big workload after the bye.
  
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
Murray is leading the league in rushing yards right now and the Texans are a pedestrian 17th against fantasy running backs this year.
Washington is currently allowing the third fewest points to fantasy running backs, but Lynch is coming off a bye and Seattle runs the ball very well. It is hard to see Lynch not being a RB1 this week.
