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.

Jackson should see a decent number of touches, but it could also go to waste if NO blows the doors off of ATL's porous D. In a standard league, the TD upside gives him a slight edge over Pierre Thomas in standard leagues.

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

- Kevin Roberts, Breaking Football

I'm not a big believer in S-Jax anymore but if he's actually healthy he could be in for a big role and solid production at home.

- 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.
