RB - FA
Week 8 Outlook
RB Marshawn Lynch’s agent has been in talks with the Seahawks about a potential return this season.
Lynch returned to the Seahawks late last season, and recorded 12 carries for 34 yards and a touchdown across one game in 2019. “My agent has been in talks with Seattle, so like I said, we’ll see what happens,” said Lynch. Beast Mode is leaving the door open on a return, but he would most likely be third on the depth chart behind Chris Carson and Rashaad Penny. “If it works out and I get backup there, it is what it is. And if not, I am looking good,” Lynch added. The Seahawks would be willing discuss a deal with Lynch. "The team wouldn't say no to anything," said Seahawks GM John Schneider. "We would discuss that with Lynch and his representatives." It appears the talks have been more preliminary and no official contract has been offered. The 34-year-old is currently outside the top-125 among all running backs in the latest expert consensus rankings
Marshawn Lynch rushed 12 times for 26 yards and two touchdowns in the Seahawks' 28-23 Divisional Round loss to the Packers.
He wasn't targeted in the passing game. Lynch finishes his three-game run with Seattle with a rushing line of 30-67-4. The touchdowns were nice from a fantasy perspective but he didn't show a lot of juice left in his legs. We expect him to stay retired this time.
Seahawks coach Pete Carroll says Marshawn Lynch is ready to handle a bigger workload now that he has two games under his belt.
Lynch has lacked explosiveness in his return to Seattle, rushing for just 41 yards on 18 attempts through two games. The 33-year-old might see some additional carries next weekend against Green Bay but expect Travis Homer to remain plenty involved, particularly in the passing game.
Marshawn Lynch ran six times for seven yards and a touchdown in the Seahawks' 17-9 Wild Card win over the Eagles.
He also caught two passes for 25 yards. In two games with the Seahawks this year Lynch has run for 41 yards on 18 carries. The veteran back appears to lack some of his trademark explosiveness following a 14-month absence from the NFL. The Seahawks will play the Packers in round two next Sunday.
Marshawn Lynch rushed 12 times for 34 yards and a touchdown in the Seahawks' 26-21 Week 17 loss to the 49ers.
This was his first game action in 14 months. There was a Sunday morning report that Lynch would see 10-15 carries and the wound up being true. The 33-year-old will likely be even more involved next Sunday against the Eagles in the Wild Card round.
