Pros: A former first-round pick, Lynch still has some talent. He has a decent nose for the end zone with 16 total touchdowns scored over his first two years in the league. His attitude appears to be improved. Buffalo doesn't have much of a passing game to rely on, so all three of the backs in this offense could see a decent workload.

Cons: Where to start? His attitude might be improving, but is it just because he realized he won't be traded? Defenses will be able to key on this running game with little threat through the air. The offensive line is a problem. The Bills invested a first-round pick in running back C.J. Spiller and still have tailback Fred Jackson to take carries away from Lynch. Both are ahead of him in the rotation at this position. Lynch will need to learn a new offense under head coach Chan Gailey.

Fantasy tip: Are fantasy owners overlooking Lynch? Sure, he has had his problems, but he's dropping to the end of the 11th round, on average. The former California-Berkeley star is still talented and could be a sleeper. He's not more than a No. 5 back, but you could do worse at that level; maybe he'll be motivated on playing his way out of Buffalo.
