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 63 yards Sunday

Marshawn Lynch had 13 carries for 63 yards in Sunday's loss to the Chargers. He was targeted twice in the passing game but had no receptions.

Fantasy Impact

This was a game where Lynch was supposed to have excelled, facing the run-funnel Chargers defense. It's evident that the Raiders' are going to limit his involvement to around 12 or so touches per game so to achieve some solid value he has to score, something he has only accomplished twice so far this year. Depending on the matchup going forward, he will likely be a low-end RB2 most games. A relatively high fantasy draft pick, the year has been disappointing for most owners.
