Marshawn Lynch calling it a career, plans to retire again

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Marshawn Lynch is retiring.

Fantasy Impact

Lynch retired after the 2015 season before coming back one year later two play two seasons for his hometown Raiders. The 33-year-old showed signs of life last season but managed to play in six just games this in 2018. He finishes his 11 year career with nearly 2,500 rushing yards, 91 total touchdowns, and a Super Bowl ring with the 2013 Seahawks. Lynch's departure from Oakland means the team is all the more likely to draft a running back on Thursday night.

Marshawn Lynch to retire

Former Bills, Seahawks, and Raiders running back Marshawn Lynch does not plan to play football again, per Adam Schefter.

Fantasy Impact

Lynch is calling it quits after spending his final two seasons with his hometown Raiders. The five time Pro-Bowler and Super Bowl champ racked up 10,379 rushing yards and 84 rushing TDs in 11 NFL seasons, playing for the Bills, Seahawks, and Raiders. He leaves a legacy as a tough, hard-nosed runner and a true blue-collar back. His “Beast Mode” persona on the field epitomized Seattle’s “Legion of Boom” era in his five years with the franchise. Lynch should get serious consideration when he’s eligible to be enshrined in Canton.

Marshawn Lynch placed on IR

ESPN's Field Yates is reporting the Oakland Raiders have placed RB Marshawn Lynch (groin) on the injured reserve list.

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.

Marshawn Lynch to IR 'strong possibility'

There's a "strong possibility" that Marshawn Lynch will be placed on IR, according to Ian Rapoport.

Fantasy Impact

Rapoport broke the news that Lynch would miss at least the next month with a groin injury. It appears that Lynch's season could be over for good, and either way this is a major blow to his fantasy value. Doug Martin figures to see an increased role along with pass-catching RB Jalen Richard.

Marshawn Lynch out at least a month with groin injury

Marshawn Lynch is reportedly out at least a month with a groin injury, according to Ian Rapoport.

Fantasy Impact

Lynch sustained the injury in Sunday's game against the Seahawks, but there was no word on the severity until now. With Lynch missing at least a month, Doug Martin should see the lion's share of the work in the Raiders backfield, though Jalen Richard will see a bump in value, too. As for Lynch, given Oakland's record and his age and personality, we may have seen the last of him in the NFL.
