Raiders | Marshawn Lynch restructures

Wed, 21 Mar 2018 05:32:16 -0700

Oakland Raiders RB Marshawn Lynch restructured his contract Saturday, March 17, and its base value is worth $5.5 million with $4.5 million guaranteed. He can earn up to $9.25 million with incentives.

Fantasy Tip: Lynch had moments last season, but the team just added Doug Martin. The two offset each other to a degree, and Lynch is an RB3 in fantasy with minimal upside since he doesn't catch a lot of passes.

Raiders | Marshawn Lynch to receive bonus

Sat, 17 Mar 2018 14:07:48 -0700

Oakland Raiders RB Marshawn Lynch will receive his $1 million bonus Sunday, March 18, and will remain with the team, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Lynch likely will continue to be the starting running back for the Raiders but could lose some touches to Doug Martin. Lynch can be at least a No. 3 running back in standard leagues in 2018.

Raiders | Marshawn Lynch staying put

Thu, 15 Mar 2018 12:46:44 -0700

Oakland Raiders RB Marshawn Lynch will not be released despite the addition of RB Doug Martin.

Fantasy Tip: Oakland's backfield is somewhat of a conundrum with Martin now. He and Lynch figure to be in on the first two downs with Jalen Richard and DeAndre Washington splitting time on passing downs. Lynch remains the most valuable fantasy back, but his ceiling is obviously lowered with Martin. Don't draft Lynch as more than a low-end RB2 to high-end RB3.

Raiders | Marshawn Lynch, Michael Crabtree not safe

Thu, 01 Mar 2018 17:50:43 -0800

Oakland Raiders RB Marshawn Lynch and WR Michael Crabtree are not guaranteed roster spots next season because the team is uncomfortable with their 2018 salaries, according to sources. Lynch is scheduled to make $4 million in salary next season with the chance to make another $4 million in bonuses. Crabtree is scheduled to make $7 million with a chance for $1.05 million in bonuses. The team may look to restructure the contracts.

Fantasy Tip: Owners should monitor the situation during the next few weeks to see if Lynch and Crabtree will stay with the Raiders. Lynch could be a No. 2 or No. 3 running back in standard leagues if he is not released, while Crabtree could be a late-round option in drafts.

Raiders | Jon Gruden wants to work with Marshawn Lynch

Wed, 14 Feb 2018 21:39:39 -0800

Oakland Raiders head coach Jon Gruden said that he doesn't know if RB Marshawn Lynch will be on the roster in the upcoming season, but added that "right now, he's our leading ball-carrier, he's our back, and we're counting on him." Gruden also mentioned: "Hopefully we get an opportunity to work together."

Fantasy Tip: Lynch is going to be entering his age-32 season in 2018, but he showed this past year that he can still be an effective and durable tailback. Playing in all but one game in his first campaign with the Raiders, Lynch tallied 891 yards on 207 carries -- good for a 4.3 yards-per-carry mark -- and logged seven touchdowns on the ground. He'll be an RB2 if his situation remains the same.

Fri, 09 Feb 2018 15:22:53 -0800

Oakland Raiders RB Marshawn Lynch has met with head coach Jon Gruden on several occasions since the team hired Gruden, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Lynch finished this season with 891 yards and seven touchdowns and could be the starting running back next season. He can be considered a low-end No. 2 running back or a No. 3 back in standard leagues next season.

Raiders | Raiders undecided on Marshawn Lynch

Wed, 24 Jan 2018 20:31:47 -0800

The Oakland Raiders are "undecided" on whether or not they will retain RB Marshawn Lynch, who has one year remaining on his contract. "I'd be doing Marshawn (Lynch) a disservice if I were to comment on what I thought of his play this previous season," said offensive coordinator Greg Olson. "Until we sit down, like I said, and do a real thorough evaluation and watching every carry that he's had and every catch opportunity to catch the football or run with the football, I really would not be making an educated comment on something like that right now."

Fantasy Tip: Although he'll be 32-years-old next season, the former Seahawk and Bill exhibited that he still has something left in the tank, rushing for 891 yards and seven touchdowns on 207 carries. In addition, his base salary in 2018 would be affordable, making him a fine option to lean on as it concerns the ground game. Lynch could once again be a valuable piece on fantasy rosters depending on his role.

Raiders | Marshawn Lynch nearly reaches century mark

Mon, 25 Dec 2017 21:21:20 -0800

Oakland Raiders RB Marshawn Lynch racked up 95 rushing yards on 25 carries in the team's Week 16 loss Monday, Dec. 25, opposite the Philadelphia Eagles. He also lost a fumble.

Fantasy Tip: The Raiders' rushing attack actually lost three fumbles tonight, with Lynch being responsible for one of those. Even so, he contributed a solid effort on the ground despite not being able to get into the end zone. He'll continue serving as a serviceable RB2 in the season finale next week.
