Rumors of his impending decline look premature - a vintage Beast-Mode performance in W1 (124 YFS, 2 TDs)
 
  
Tom Schriner
FFLockerRoom
The wear on Lynch's tires is starting to worry me a bit. Only reason he has slipped a couple of spots in our rankings.
SJAX had a disastrous 2013 in Atlanta. Hopefully year two will be much kinder. What I want to see in training camp is a lighter Jackson ready for a breakout 2014. It might be his last chance to really make a statement.
  
Tozzi Brothers
Legion Report
Marshawn Lynch will still be the focal point in the Seattle Seahawks Offense in 2014. The Seahawks will still be sure to implement their future RB Christine Michael in the mix which should reduce Lynch’s load by around 50-60 carries this season. This is not exactly a Running Back By Committee approach in Seattle, rather a lessening the load for the Beast Mode. Lynch ran for 1257/12 on 301 carries last season and should see about 260 carries this season. Due to the fact Beast Mode will still see the bulk of the goal line carries he remains a mid to low end RB1. The 28 year old still has some life, but the Seahawks want to preserve as much as possible for the Playoffs/Super Bowl. Keep in mind Lynch faces a very tough Fantasy Playoff Schedule: @PHI, SF, @ARI.
 
  
James Hatfield
Hatty Waiver Wire Guru
The Seahawks love the run game and Lynch continues to get the goal-line work. He is a safe selection for 2014 and you have to love his toughness.
Hard to expect a solid 2014, but if he is hanging around later in drafts he is not the worst bye week filler to have on your bench.
  
Sablich Brothers
The NY Times
Likely last year in Seattle, Micheal ready to carry more, and plenty of recent wear & tear.
31 years old and running out of fuel, but at least the o-line should be better this year.
  
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
Lynch turns 28 years old and has 1,753 career carries. I think the plan is to have more of a timeshare this season with second-year RB Christine Michael and allow Lynch to depart in free agency next year, when they will need to free up money to sign QB Russell Wilson to a mega contract. It was good they were able to resolve Lynch's contract squabble early in training camp.
Jackson turns 31 years old this year, has 2,552 career carries and played in only 12 games last year. Buyer beware, he is a big injury risk at this point in his career. He is already suffering hamstring injuries in training camp.
  
Chet Gresham
The Fake Football
Lynch is the workhorse of that backfield for another year and that means production. Don't overthink this, he's still a stud and the Seahawks will run him into the ground this season.
 
  
Raju Byfield
Win My Fantasy League
Marshawn Lynch will see his carries reduced but will still likely see 300 plus touches with Christine Michael likely maxing out around the 150 range.
Still has massive upside in this explosive offense. Steven Jackson projects as a RB1 type workhorse when healthy but has a talented rookie in Devonta Freeman breathing down his neck and will likely be forced into a committee sooner rather than later.
  
Jeff Boggis
Fantasy Football Empire
28 years old and 4.17 yards per carry on 301 rushing attempts. Seahawks OC Darrell Bevell says he will use a running back by committee approach this season. We all know that Lynch is still the #1 RB, but even at a 70/30 split with Christine Michael , this will hurt his fantasy value.
 
  
Smitty
Fantasy Football Starters
His future is up in the air in SEA, but he is good to go for 2014. Christine Michael (and even Turbin) is a must-own in 2014, but Lynch likely has one more year left as a top 6-10RB. Just know, he has more carries than any other back in the league over the last few years... he has some injury risk, which is why the handcuff(s) is so important.
 
  
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
Lynch has been unstoppable the past three years and he's not slowing down now. The talented young backs behind him will have to wait.
Jackson has lost a step but he can still be effective in Atlanta. He just needs to stay healthy.
  
Jon Collins
Fantasy Sports LR
 
I want to be high on Jackson, but missed time in camp and 31 year old hamstrings push him just outside of RB2 range for me. If he gives 16 in Atlanta's offense and holds off Freeman you'll love the draft day value.
  
Pat Fitzmaurice
The Football Girl
Good chance Seahawks start to dial back his workload this year.
The end is nigh. Possibly good for more useful fantasy season -- or not.
