NFL | Marshawn Lynch misses football

Tue, 21 Mar 2017 21:42:54 -0700

Retired RB Marshawn Lynch misses football and there's "no question" about it, according to his agent Doug Hendrickson.

Fantasy Tip: This could be another hint that Lynch is on his way back to the NFL after a year away from the game, but Hendrickson also contended that the former Seattle Seahawks is "the kind of guy that can shift by the hour." If the 30-year-old does return and winds up with the Raiders, he should immediately be someone of great interest to fantasy owners, especially considering how successful Oakland's offense was last season.

Raiders | Marshawn Lynch interested in Raiders

Mon, 20 Mar 2017 06:47:38 -0700

Retired RB Marshawn Lynch has real interest in playing for the Oakland Raiders, according to a source. Lynch is still under contract with the Seattle Seahawks.

Fantasy Tip: Lynch wouldn't be anything more than a risky RB2 in fantasy if he were to come back.

Raiders | Marshawn Lynch hinting at plans?

Sun, 19 Mar 2017 18:05:50 -0700

Retired Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch retweeted a message Saturday, March 18, showing that one of his musical playlists contains a song titled "Oakland Raiders."

Fantasy Tip: There has been a lot of speculation on Lynch's future, and he has been linked to the Oakland Raiders. If he does end up in the silver and black, he should be the primary power back and have a chance to deliver RB2 production.

Seahawks | Marshawn Lynch plotting comeback?

Sat, 18 Mar 2017 19:41:02 -0700

Retired Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch has a "very good chance" to end his one-year retirement, according to a source with knowledge of the situation.

Fantasy Tip: If Lynch returns, the Seahawks will likely have to release him or trade him. The situation is worth keeping an eye on. In the right offense, Lynch could still be a solid RB2.

Seahawks | Marshawn Lynch has not asked for release

Fri, 17 Mar 2017 17:08:52 -0700

Contrary to a previous report, retired RB Marshawn Lynch did visit the Seattle Seahawks' headquarters Thursday, March 16, but did not request his release. Lynch has stayed in shape and is considered playing again. The Seahawks are open to trading Lynch's rights to a team, but the Seahawks were not willing to release him last season when there were rumors of Lynch considering a comeback.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to keep an eye on the situation to see if Lynch decides to play again. The Oakland Raiders appear to be his most likely destination if he plays but they may need to trade for his rights. Lynch was one of the better running backs when he played and could be a No. 2 or No. 3 running back in some leagues if he is healthy.

Seahawks | Marshawn Lynch asked for release?

Fri, 17 Mar 2017 12:45:18 -0700

Updating a previous story, retired RB Marshawn Lynch met with Seattle Seahawks general manager John Schneider and head coach Pete Carroll on Thursday, March 16, to ask for his release, according to the Huffington Post's Jordan Schultz.

Fantasy Tip: The Seahawks still hold Lynch's rights although he announced his retirement last season. While this could feed further speculation that Lynch is trying to clear a path in order to join his hometown Oakland Raiders, it's usually not a good idea to predict what "Beast Mode" is thinking. Lynch averaged 3.8 yards per carry in 2015 and was having trouble staying healthy, so it is debatable how great of an addition the 30-year-old (31 in April) would be for Oakland anyway.

Raiders | Marshawn Lynch to Raiders?

Fri, 17 Mar 2017 05:35:31 -0700

Former Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch could be potentially acquired by the Oakland Raiders either via trade or release, according to sources. Lynch retired last season.

Fantasy Tip: Beast Mode turns 31 next month, and it would be hard to expect RB1 numbers after the layoff and an injury-riddled 2015 season. He would be a speculative pick late in early drafts.

Seahawks | Marshawn Lynch considering return?

Thu, 08 Sep 2016 18:00:50 -0700

Retired RB Marshawn Lynch is "up in the air" about a possible return, according to a source with knowledge of the situation. If Lynch does return, the same source said Week 4 or Week 5 are the likeliest return dates.

Fantasy Tip: A potential return is just a rumor at this point, and Lynch can be left on the waiver wire for now.

Seahawks | Marshawn Lynch won't return

Mon, 06 Jun 2016 09:51:16 -0700

Retired RB Marshawn Lynch confirmed that he won't be returning to play for the Seattle Seahawks. "I'm retired. Is that good enough? Which camera do you want me to look into? This one? I'm done. I'm not playing football anymore," Lynch said.

Fantasy Tip: Lynch first announced his retirement immediately following the Super Bowl in February, and he's stuck with his decision. Seattle is expected to use Thomas Rawls as their main back in 2016, but he's unproven and has injury concerns. Don't consider Rawls anything more than a midrange RB2 in fantasy drafts this fall.

Seahawks | Doug Baldwin weighs in on Marshawn Lynch

Mon, 30 May 2016 02:43:12 -0700

Seattle Seahawks WR Doug Baldwin said he is "most certain" that retired RB Marshawn Lynch is done playing football.

Fantasy Tip: Baldwin is Lynch's latest former teammate to weigh in on the running back's future. It doesn’t hurt to take a flier on him as your final pick, but there is a good chance he won't play another down.
