Marshawn Lynch may be on a snap count in Week 17, but will provide a big boost for a running game that was down to rookie Travis Homer, and Lynch's former backup Robert Turbin. Lynch was solid in his brief stint with Oakland last season, and reportedly approached the team a month ago letting them know he was in shape and willing to return to the team in a worst case scenario. The worst case is here, and Beast Mode has returned to Seattle. Lynch will be an interesting option in playoff leagues and DFS contests.
