Fantasy Impact:

An expected move, Lynch was placed on the injured reserve list on Monday, likely ending his season with a groin injury. With Lynch out, Doug Martin is expected to step into Lynch's role as the Raiders' featured back. However, it wouldn't surprise me to see Jalen Richard get more involved in the offense as well. Richard has played well in the pseudo-Chris Thompson role in John Gruden's offense and it could expand moving forward. Both Richard and Martin should be added in all fantasy formats.
