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.

With Seattle projected as 5.5 point favorites, Lynch should see plenty of carries against this mediocre front 7.

While a wait and see approach might be best with Ridley, it doesn't appear that anyone has jumped him on the depth chart. This is a decent matchup if you're desperate at RB.

Boom or bust week, start with caution

- James Hatfield, Hatty Waiver Wire Guru

Packers defense has yet to prove a thing, so hard to hate Lynch at home with this soft matchup.

- Kevin Roberts, Breaking Football

He still has upside if he's the guy, but the feeling is Vereen minimizes him considerably starting now.

- Kevin Roberts, Breaking Football

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.
