Marshawn Lynch officially a member of the Raiders

ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting the Oakland Raiders have officially acquired running back Marshawn Lynch and a sixth-round draft selection in 2018 from the Seattle Seahawks in exchange for a fifth-round pick in the 2018 NFL Draft.

Fantasy Impact

It's official. The Seahawks have traded Lynch to the Raiders. The 30-year-old running back has passed his physical upon his return from Haiti Wednesday, which sealed the deal. ESPN's Adam Caplan reported earlier in the day that the Raiders will likely employ Lynch as their primary rusher on first and second downs while mixing in Jamize Olawale, DeAndre Washington, Jalen Richard and their newest addition on third. Lynch should be viewed a borderline fantasy RB1/ RB2 for the 2017 season.

Marshawn Lynch traded to Raiders

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport is reporting the Seattle Seahawks have agreed to trade running back Marshawn Lynch to the Oakland Raiders while swapping late-round draft picks as compensation. The trade is contingent on Lynch passing a physical.

Fantasy Impact

In addition, the Raiders and Lynch have agreed to terms on a one-year deal worth a max value of $8.5 million that includes a $3 million base salary, plus, another $2 million if he gains at least 1,000 yards rushing in 2017. In Oakland, Lynch will step into the vacant starting running back job left by Latavius Murray. From a fantasy perspective, Lynch should be viewed a borderline RB1/ RB2 in 2017 who could have a huge year rushing behind a Raiders offensive line that finished the 2016 campaign ranked No. 4 in the league according to Pro Football Focus.

Marshawn Lynch deadline to sign with Raiders appears set

Oakland Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie told the media the deadline for the team to acquire running back Marshawn Lynch is the NFL Draft. “At some point, you would like to know," McKenzie said Friday. "Prior to the draft is that point."

Fantasy Impact

It appears that the Raiders are using the NFL Draft as the deadline for the team to land Lynch. Although this could just be a smokescreen in order to speed things up, it wouldn't be a surprise if Oakland stands pat to their presumed deadline. They do have options. Adrian Peterson, Jamaal Charles and LeGarrette Blount are all available free agents and have similar skill sets to Lynch. I'd expect the Raiders to make a move for one of the aforementioned rushers if they ultimately cannot work things out with Lynch.

Marshawn Lynch, Raiders not yet reach a deal

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport is reporting that contrary to reports from earlier in the day, the Oakland Raiders and retired Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch have not yet come to parameters on a deal. However, the network insider believes the "optimism" is there and a deal is "expected to happen."

Fantasy Impact

It appears that an agreement between the Raiders and Lynch has not yet come to fruition despite reports earlier in the day via NFL Network's Mike Silver stating otherwise. However, Lynch is fully expected to become a member of the Raiders sooner rather than later. Once a deal is agreed upon between the aforementioned parties, the Raiders would then have to negotiate a trade with the Seahawks, who still own the rights to Lynch, to acquire his services.

Marshawn Lynch, Raiders agree to terms

NFL Network's Mike Silver is reporting the Oakland Raiders and retired Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch have agreed to terms on an undisclosed deal. However, the Seahawks and Raiders still must agree on a trade for the move to become official.

Fantasy Impact

Although the Raiders and Lynch have agreed to terms on a deal, the 30-year-old running back's rights still belong to the Seahawks. In order for Lynch to officially become a member of the Raiders, a trade must be agreed upon and completed between the two teams.
