Seahawks | Marshawn Lynch hints at retirement

Sun, 07 Feb 2016 19:07:52 -0800

Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch sent a tweet Sunday, Feb. 7, indicating that he plans to retire. The tweet contained two fingers up with a picture of Lynch's green cleats hanging.

Fantasy Tip: If Lynch is indeed hanging them up as his tweet seems to indicate, Thomas Rawls would enter the 2016 season as a potential RB2.

Seahawks | Marshawn Lynch planning to retire

Sun, 07 Feb 2016 09:57:51 -0800

Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch has told people close to him that he plans to retire, according to multiple league sources.

Fantasy Tip: Lynch, who turns 30 in April, was limited to 111 carries, 417 yards and three touchdowns in seven regular-season games this year due to hamstring and abdominal injuries. Thomas Rawls will replace him in Seattle and should be viewed as a low-end RB2 or high-end RB3 in drafts.

Seahawks | Marshawn Lynch likely done in Seattle

Fri, 05 Feb 2016 08:59:37 -0800

Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch is unlikely to return to the Seahawks in 2016, according to NFL Network commentator Michael Robinson. Robinson, who is close friends with Lynch, said he knew what Lynch's intentions were regarding retirement, but he wasn't at liberty to say. "It's fair to assume (his days in Seattle are over,)" Robinson said.

Fantasy Tip: In the interview, there was a feeling a door was left open that Lynch could return in 2016 with another team. If Lynch returns, he'll be a low-end RB1 consideration.

Seahawks | Marshawn Lynch leaning towards sunset

Fri, 22 Jan 2016 10:22:23 -0800

Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch is leaning towards retirement, according to Seahawks general manager John Schneider.

Fantasy Tip: A lot can change over the course of the offseason, but Thomas Rawls impressed before he got hurt. He'll be a low-end RB2 or high-end RB3 in drafts if Lynch hangs 'em up.

Seahawks | Marshawn Lynch to be traded or released?

Tue, 19 Jan 2016 16:33:40 -0800

Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch is expected to be released or traded this offseason, according to Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times. The Seahawks could save $6.5 million against the salary cap by moving Lynch.

Fantasy Tip: This shouldn't be a big surprise, Lynch leaving would give the Seahawks more money and they still have Thomas Rawls, perhaps considered to be a poor man's Lynch. If Lynch leaves, Rawls will be in low-end RB1 to high-end RB2 territory.

Seahawks | Marshawn Lynch to have big cap hit

Tue, 19 Jan 2016 14:00:04 -0800

Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch will take an $11.5 million cap hit next season -- the highest cap hit for any running back under contract for 2016. Comparatively, RB Thomas Rawls will only take a $530,000 cap hit. Additionally, Rawls drastically out produced Lynch in 2015. Lynch gained 497 yards from scrimmage on 292 snaps, with 3.8 yards per carry and a 57% third-down conversion rate. Rawls gained 906 yards from scrimmage on 279 snaps, with 5.6 yards per carry (most in NFL) and a 75% third-down conversation rate.

Fantasy Tip: The formula certainly doesn't bode well for Lynch's future with Seattle. The Seahawks can pay less for more, essentially, at least based on 2015. Don't be surprised if Lynch is playing in a new uniform or watching football on his couch next season. If Lynch does not return, Rawls has RB1 potential.

Seahawks | Marshawn Lynch's future uncertain

Mon, 18 Jan 2016 16:27:34 -0800

Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch's future with the team is uncertain at this point, according to head coach Pete Carroll.

Fantasy Tip: Lynch could be released this offseason because of his salary cap figure, so owners should keep an eye on the situation. He likely will able to find a starting job with another team and could be an early-round option in some leagues.

Seahawks | Marshawn Lynch quiet in playoff game

Sun, 17 Jan 2016 14:44:15 -0800

Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch rushed for 20 yards on six carries in the divisional round playoff game against the Carolina Panthers Sunday, Jan. 17.

Fantasy Tip: Lynch was coming back from an injury, so he may have received limited snaps during the game. There is a chance that Lynch will have to find another team this offseason but should be a solid option in drafts in 2016 if he finds a starting job.

Seahawks | Marshawn Lynch active Sunday

Sun, 17 Jan 2016 08:48:21 -0800

Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch (abdomen) will play in the NFC divisional-round game against the Carolina Panthers, according to head coach Pete Carroll, who added that he will continue to monitor his injury.

Fantasy Tip: Lynch ($6,500, 13.0% of cap) had been listed as probable on the injury report and was a full participant in practice throughout the week. However, he makes a risky play in FantasyScore because it is uncertain how many snaps he will see. Don't be surprised if Christine Michael ($6,300, 12.6% of cap) sees the majority of carries versus Carolina.

Seahawks | Christine Michael will be mixed in

Fri, 15 Jan 2016 15:47:31 -0800

Seattle Seahawks RB Christine Michael will still rotate in quite a bit in the divisional matchup with the Carolina Panthers Sunday, Jan. 17, even with RB Marshawn Lynch (abdomen) expected to return, according to head coach Pete Carroll. The Seahawks won't put Lynch through a pre-game test.

Fantasy Tip: Not only is Lynch ($6,500, 13.0% of cap) a big question mark this weekend after having not played since Nov. 15, but his return clouds the value of Michael ($6,300, 12.6% of cap), as well. We all know what Beast Mode can do when healthy, so he's a risk/reward pick this weekend.
