2014 Outlook
Depth Chart
An offseason contract holdout – which occurred during the same time that he made news for the unique way he parks his Ferrari, mind you – has some skeptics questioning Marshawn Lynch's commitment to playing football, but there haven't been many backs as consistent as “Beast Mode” since he arrived in Seattle back in 2010. In each of his past three seasons, Lynch has surpassed 1,200 yards on the ground while scoring double-digit touchdowns in each of those seasons. Combine that with the fact that he has only lost five fumbles over that span and you have a player who most would believe is very safe in his role within the Seahawks' Super Bowl-winning offense. That might not be the case, however, as reports from camp have been that the team is looking to find ways to get 2013 second-round draft pick Christine Michael on the field more often this season. If there is one area where Lynch has not been superb, it has been in the pass-catching department. His 36 receptions in 2013 were his highest total since 2008 and he had failed to reach even 30 receptions during between those years. Still, Lynch has to be considered one of the safest bets to be a top-10 running back this season. Seattle does seem committed on passing the ball more often, but that could still mean 275-plus touches for Lynch.

Comment: Despite a contract distraction during the off-season, Lynch remains a high-end RB1.

News From The Past 90 Days
Harvin reportedly traded to Jets
Seahawks receive conditional mid-round pick
By: Doug Orth | Fri Oct 17, 5:50 pm

New York Jets
BREAKING: The Jets have just agreed with Seattle to a trade sending WR Percy Harvin to New York for conditional pick. (Jay Glazer on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: This one is a stunner and has fairly far-reaching implications for both teams. By making this move, the Seahawks essentially are scrapping the misdirection part of their offense and likely recommitting themselves to Marshawn Lynch. Doug Baldwin should see his stock increase the most among Seattle wideouts. The Jets now have a dynamic (albeit injury-prone) playmaker opposite Eric Decker that should aid Geno Smith's development.


Marshawn Lynch cleared by police
Seahwaks RB was in hotel room at time of incident
By: Mike Krueger | Thu Aug 14, 7:00 am

Seattle Seahawks
Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch has been cleared of any involvement in an assault and property damage accusation, the Bellevue, Washington, police department said Wednesday night. The Seahawks called the accusation "bogus" in a one-sentence statement Tuesday. (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: Lynch was under investigation for an assault and battery claim but wasn't even at the scene. He was in the team hotel room at the time of the incident. Nothing to see here. Lynch remains a back-end Round 1 fantasy running back.


Marshawn Lynch may play Friday
First game since ending holdout
By: Jake Gordon | Wed Aug 13, 2:08 pm

Seattle Seahawks
Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said during an appearance on KJR-AM this morning that tailback Marshawn Lynch may play Friday in the team’s second preseason game against the San Diego Chargers. “You may see a little bit of Marshawn in this game,” Carroll said. “We”ll see how this week wraps up.” (Seattle Times)

FFToday's Take: Marshawn Lynch probably won't see too many carries against the Chargers if he does play. Nonetheless, it is a good sign to see him in shape and ready to get after it on the field after holding out. 'Beast Mode' is also being investigated over allegations of a potential assault this past weekend but police have not formally linked the Seahawks running back to the incident. Fantasy owners should certainly check back for updates but for now he remains a first round investment on draft day.


Seahawks call Lynch allegations "bogus"
Police investigation continues
By: Mike Krueger | Tue Aug 12, 5:15 pm

Seattle Seahawks
Allegations of assault and personal property damage made against star running back Marshawn Lynch are “bogus,” the Seahawks said Tuesday. “While we maintain the utmost respect for the investigative process, after speaking with Marshawn, we are comfortable these accusations are bogus,’’ the statement read. (Seattle Times)

FFToday's Take: Lynch was reportedly being investigated yesterday for an incident that allegedly occurred early Sunday morning. At this point there is no real information about Lynch's involvement and thus no reason to panic. The investigation by police continues.


Marshawn Lynch under investigation
Alleged assault and personal property damage
By: Doug Orth | Mon Aug 11, 4:30 pm

Seattle Seahawks
Bellevue police officers are investigating Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch after receiving an “allegation of an assault and personal property damage” from a female victim at a Bellevue apartment, according to a news release from the department. According to police, the alleged incident was reported to have occurred early Sunday morning, but “no domestic violence or sexual assault was involved in the allegation.” Bellevue police have assigned the case to a detective and it is under investigation. (Seattle Times)

FFToday's Take: Lynch doesn't exactly have a spotless off-field record, so owners shouldn't dismiss this report until the authorities do the same. Likely in his final season with the Seahawks, any missed time by Lynch would result in a spike of playing time - and fantasy stock - for Christine Michael and Robert Turbin.


Lynch to end holdout, report to camp
Will not receive a new deal
By: Doug Orth | Thu Jul 31, 5:45 pm

Seattle Seahawks
Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch will end his holdout and will report to training camp shortly, league sources said. The holdout has lasted eight days so far. Lynch will not be receiving the new deal and added money he sought, but Seattle is expected to add some financial concessions to his contract, sources said. (ABC News)

FFToday's Take: Lynch is in the third year of a four-year, $30 million deal. With Christine Michael and, to a lesser extent Robert Turbin and Spencer Ware, in reserve, Lynch had virtually no leverage and may be coming around to the realization that the Seahawks will likely be moving on from him after this season.
