We'd been seeing an increased role for Lynch coming into Week 14, as he was averaging 19 touches per game in the previous four games. But then… they gave him just seven carries against the Chiefs. He averaged 8.7 yards per carry on them and scored a touchdown, but whatever, who needs him when you have Carr? It's such a small sample size, but Lynch has averaged 13.3 carries per game at home compared to just 10.8 carries per game on the road, so it helps that he's at home. The Cowboys got Sean Lee back last week, so while they aren't a stomp-ground anymore, they still aren't a matchup to avoid. The Cowboys have also allowed opponents 2.1 more carries per game on the road. The Raiders defense needs to hang around in this game, which is a risk, but Lynch should come in as a high-end RB3, at worst.

Dallas is 15th against fantasy running backs and Lynch has scored a touchdown in each of the last 3 games. Lynch should be a RB2 this week.
