As expected, Lynch was fresh going into the opener. He dominated from the beginning rushing for 110 and 2 TDs. He also caught one pass late in the game for 14 yards.
 
  
Staff Rankings
2MugsFF
With Seattle projected as 5.5 point favorites, Lynch should see plenty of carries against this mediocre front 7.
MIA figures to play from behind, so the snap count should be in Moreno's favor this week over Lamar Miller.
  
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
Packers defense has yet to prove a thing, so hard to hate Lynch at home with this soft matchup.
Is going to have a role and could be productive out of the gates.
  
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
The Packers were just 26th against fantasy running backs and the loss of DT B. J. Raji is a big blow to their run defense. I think Lynch kicks off the season with RB1 numbers.
The Patriots are going to be better than 20th against fantasy running backs this year, but Moreno has played well as of late and should be the lead back in the Miami opener.
