Bobby Sylvester

While Kansas City's pass defense has been a disaster this year, their run defense is still strong. Lynch should get his usual 12 to 15 carries with 30 to 50 yards and a coin flip at a touchdown. Unfortunately in today's age, that is a starting fantasy running back. 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
It's gotten to the point where Marshawn Lynch just doesn't play on a team good enough to grind him out in wins, leaving him to touch the ball a maximum of 13 times over the last five weeks. He's coming off a matchup against the Chargers who may just be the worst run defense in the league, yet he walked away with just 63 yards. Lynch isn't done, but he's also not getting enough work to trust on a weekly basis. Prior to Le'Veon Bell killing them last week, the Chiefs hadn't allowed a running back to total more than 79 yards on the ground.  
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
The Chiefs are 14th against fantasy running backs, Lynch is a low-upside flex play on a struggling offense.
