The Titans are going to spoil Lynch's Raiders debut, as they're a team that has ranked in the top-six against fantasy running backs in each of the last two years, including a No. 2 finish last year. They have allowed just 16 total touchdowns to running backs over the last two years, which is where Lynch is supposed to provide value. Consider him a low-end RB2 who'll need to score in order to live up to his reputation.

Marshawn Lynch totals 49 yards and a TD Sunday

Marshawn Lynch had quite a day with all the emotion of representing his home turf in Oakland's final home opener Sunday against the Jets. Although it wasn't a competitive game, it was very important to both Lynch and Raider Nation. For the day, Lynch had 12 carries for 45 yards and a touchdown, as well as one reception on two targets for another four yards. As expected, his touches were limited, but in no way did he seem anything but fully vested with the idea of playing more if needed.

Fantasy Impact

Lynch's usage fell from last week's 18 touches to 13 today and that establishes a solid floor and ceiling of what would seem reasonable going forward. An important thing to keep in mind is that today's game was a blowout of sorts and Lynch was clearly prepared to play more if needed. Lynch will face the Redskins next Sunday night in Washington.
