Marshawn Lynch getting fewer opportunities for success


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/26/2014) Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch put together yet another disappointing performance in Week 8, in a 13-9 win over the Panthers.

Lynch was held out of the end zone for the third straight game, and posted his third single-digit Fantasy effort in a row as a result. He rushed for just 62 yards on 14 carries, and has not reached even 65 yards in three straight games; he had no such streaks last season. Lynch is averaging just 14.0 carries per game in that span, compared to 17.3 in the first four games. 

Lynch has actually been slightly more effective in a per-carry basis this season, averaging 4.3 yards per carry compared to 4.2. However, he is on pace for nearly 50 fewer carries, with the Seahawks playing with leads less often. And, given how much rarely they have put things together on both sides of the ball, that might not change moving forward.

The good news is, there is no competition for carries in Seattle, so if the team is able to turn things around, Lynch is in a good spot for 20-plus carries per game. Given his role, Fantasy owners just have to hope he can start to turn things arounds soon.  


Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch can't find the end zone


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/26/2014) Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch couldn't find the end zone Week 8 against the Panthers.

Lynch had an average game on the ground, gaining 62 yards on 14 carries. He had one big run late, rumbling for 25 yards in the third quarter. Otherwise, Lynch was held in check by the Panthers defense. He had a shot at a touchdown at the end of the second quarter, but couldn't handle a pass from Russell Wilson. The ball deflected off Lynch, and went for an interception. He wound up catching one ball for 2 yards. 

Lynch will take on the Raiders Week 9. 


Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch good to go Week 8


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/26/2014) Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch is good to go Week 8 against the Panthers.

Lynch entered the game probable, and was always expected to play. Though he was listed on the team's injury report, his presence was "not injury related." He should start as usual. 


Seahawks to have their probables Week 8


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/26/2014) The Seahawks will have their probable players Week 8 against the Panthers.

Michael Bennett, Kam Chancellor, Marshawn Lynch, Tharold Simon, Robert Turbin, Kevin Williams and Luke Willson are all active for the contest. Bennett is dealing with a toe injury. Chancellor has an ankle issue. 


Report: Marshawn Lynch's days could be numbered in Seattle


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/26/2014) Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch's days could be numbered in Seattle, according to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network on Sunday.

Lynch was unhappy with the team after trading Percy Harvin to the Jets and has a "tense relationship" with "very little-to-no communication" with coach Pete Carroll and general manager John Schneider. Rapoport added that he wouldn't be surprised if the team drafted a running back to replace the 28-year-old back next season.

Lynch has back-to-back seasons of 300-plus carries and is on pace for roughly 259 carries through six games this season. He is expected to earn approximately $5 million in 2015 before becoming a free agent in 2016.


Marshawn Lynch held under 3 yards per carry


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/19/2014) Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch had his second straight subpar performance Sunday. In the 28-26 loss in St. Louis, Lynch rushed 18 times for 53 yards (2.9 ypc) and caught both his targets for 18 yards.

Lynch did not score for the second straight week. He'll visit the Panthers in Week 8.


Report: Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch upset by Harvin trade


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10/18/2014) Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch was visibly upset after learning about the trade of wide receiver Percy Harvin to the Jets, almost refusing to get on the team bus, the New York Daily News reports.

Lynch is in line to get more work on offense with the team dealing away one of its top passing-game options, but he was close with the departing Harvin. The trade was engineered reportedly in part due to Harvin being a problem in the locker room, but his departure could cause further problems with players like Lynch who were friends with the receiver.


Seahawks list lengthy injury report for Week 7 against St. Louis


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/17/2014) The Seahawks will be without the services of defensive tackle Jordan Hill (ankle), cornerback Byron Maxwell (calf), linebacker Bobby Wagner (toe), defensive end Cassius Marsh (foot), center Max Unger (foot) and tight end Zach Miller (ankle) in Week 7 at St. Louis. All six players were ruled out for Sunday's game.

Tight end Luke Willson (groin) was listed as questionable and is expected to be a game-time decision, coach Pete Carroll said.

Meanwhile, running back Marshawn Lynch (not injury related), offensive tackle Alvin Bailey (oblique), cornerback Tharold Simon (knee), defensive tackle Brandon Mebane (not injury related) and defensive end Michael Bennett (not injury related) were all ruled probable against the Rams.


Seahawks 'have to do a better job' of getting touches for Lynch


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/16/2014) After Seahawks coach Pete Carroll indicated Monday the team should have given running back Marshawn Lynch more than 10 carries during a Week 6 loss vs. Dallas, it was offensive coordinator Darren Bevell's turn Wednesday to shoulder some of the blame, per The News Tribune.

"Yeah, that’s part of it, you know. I mean, there’s going to be cries for everything, all the time," Bevell said. "The Fantasy owners … I’m not a Fantasy owner. I don’t care about anyone’s (Fantasy) points. But I do care about us winning the game. And Marshawn is a huge key for us winning the game. And we do -- and I -- have to do a better job of giving him the ball."


Pete Carroll laments not getting Marshawn Lynch more involved


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/13/2014) Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said Monday he wished running back Marshawn Lynch had gotten more than 10 carries in the home loss to the Cowboys.

"It felt very much like the San Diego game, we couldn’t get the rhythm going, and we don’t ever want to play a game when Marshawn [Lynch] carries the ball 10 times," Carroll told reporters. "That’s not enough. That’s not a format that we’re trying to build from. Sometimes you just have to do deal with it. In this game, we were still positioned to have a chance to win but it wasn’t the way that we wanted to play it and so there are a lot of factors that weigh into that."

Asked again about Lynch's use, Carroll said: "We tried to unfold the plan, to do what we normally do and to kind of get the rhythm of it and to get the proportion of the run to the pass. But it just didn’t quite fit right and didn’t happen the way we wanted it to. A couple mistakes like getting behind the sticks and things like that affected it. We tried to get back to it in the third quarter and it just seemed like we never really caught up with how we like to manage the game. We don’t feel very good about that. We want to get that done every time we go out."

Lynch visits the Rams in Week 7.


Marshawn Lynch gets just 10 carries


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/12/2014) The Seahawks went away from running back Marshawn Lynch in their Week 6 home loss to the Cowboys. Lynch carried 10 times for 61 yards (6.1 ypc) and caught one of two targets for 1 yard.

The 10 carries were Lynch's second-fewest this season. He has received at least 16 carries in 18 of his past 21 games dating to the start of last season.

Lynch visits the Rams in Week 7.


Seahawks' Marshawn Lynch good to go Week 6


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/10/2014) Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch is probable for Week 6. 

Lynch did not practice Wednesday, but was listed as a non-injury on the team's injury report. He was able to take part in full practice both Thursday and Friday. Lynch dealt with a back issue last Sunday, but was able to play through it. Wednesday is typically a day off for veterans on Seattle, so Lynch should be considered pretty close to healthy Sunday.


Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch practices in full Thursday


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/9/2014) After receiving a routine day of rest, Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch returned to practice as a full participant on Thursday, according to the team's official website.

Lynch felt some tightness in his back prior to Monday night's game at Washington, which caused him to miss to entire opening drive. He still managed to register 117 yards of total offense and a touchdown on 22 touches in a Week 5 win. He has 306 rushing yards and three touchdowns on the ground through his first five games this season.

The Seahawks will take on the Cowboys at home in Week 6.


Receptions something new for Marshawn Lynch


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/7/2014) By now, it's pretty clear to everyone that those reports of Marshawn Lynch's demise coming into the 2014 season were greatly exaggerated. But might he be even more valuable than he's been in previous years?

At least in points-per-reception leagues, it's possible. He had a season-high five catches Week 4 at Washington, giving him an average of four over his last three games. Three of his four touchdowns during that span have come on the receiving end.

He's gotten at least four targets in three straight games. He got that many in only four games all of last season and only once in 2012.

It's hard to say with such low numbers over such a short period of time whether or not the Seahawks intend to use Lynch more that way, but it's enough of a possibility that even in a points-per-reception league, which has typically been his worst format, I wouldn't be looking to shop him right now.


Pete Carroll explains why Marshawn Lynch came off bench


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/7/2014) Seahawks coach Pete Carroll told reporters that running back Marshawn Lynch felt some tightness in his back coming out of the locker room Monday in Washington. So Robert Turbin started while Lynch loosened up his back by riding a stationary bike and wearing a heating pad.

Marshawn Lynch up to six touchdowns in four games


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/6/2014) Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch caught a touchdown pass for the third straight week in Monday's win at Washington. He ran 17 times for 72 yards (4.2 ypc) and caught five of six targets for 45 yards, including a 9-yard score in the fourth quarter.

Lynch has three rushing and three receiving touchdowns through four games. He's on pace for 52 receptions after not catching more than 36 passes in any of the past five seasons. He led Seattle in targets Monday night.

Lynch did not start the game, watching as Robert Turbin played the entire first drive. But Lynch entered on the second possession and did his usual damage. He'll take on the Cowboys in Week 6.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
