Report: Marshawn Lynch to plead guilty to reckless driving


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/20/2014) Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch will plead guilty Friday to reckless driving, which will end his pending DUI case, reports ESPN. Lynch will be fined and spend two years on probation.

His attorney, Ivan Golde, said he expects Lynch to avoid an NFL suspension.


Marshawn Lynch pondering future?


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/4/2014) Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch "has been telling teammates all season he'll retire if they win the Super Bowl," according to a report on SI.com. The report adds, however, that cornerback Richard Sherman "doesn't believe him."

During his brief time with reporters following the Super Bowl, Lynch was not asked to address his future. Lynch, who turns 28 in April, called the Super Bowl victory a "dream come true."


Marshawn Lynch wins Super Bowl, could suffer as a result


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(2/4/2014) Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch helped his team win Super Bowl XLVIII against Denver with 15 carries for 39 yards and a touchdown. But now he could be in trouble heading into 2014.

Based on our research, Lynch could see a downturn in production next year since he had 403 total touches (366 carries and 37 catches) for the season. It's a lot of work for any running back, even someone as tough as Lynch.

We went back and looked at the past 10 years for running backs who had 400 touches in a season, including the playoffs, and found 26 occasions where it happened for 17 different running backs. Of those 26 times, only four -- Edgerrin James (2004), LaDainian Tomlinson (2005), James again (2005) and Adrian Peterson (2009) -- produced an increase in Fantasy points the following season.

The 22 other examples where a running back hit 400 touches over that span showed varying results -- all negative. Two running backs -- Tiki Barber and Ricky Williams -- retired following consecutive seasons with 400 touches. And nine times a running back suffered an injury -- Arian Foster (2013), Peterson (2013), Michael Turner (2009), Steven Jackson (2007), Larry Johnson (2007), Shaun Alexander (2006), Clinton Portis (2006), Curtis Martin (2005) and Jamal Lewis (2004) -- that caused him to miss games following a 400-touch campaign. Some of those injuries could be attributed to the heavy workload the year before.

Statistically, the Fantasy point decline was staggering. Of the 20 times a running back played the year after getting 400 touches and saw a decline in production, 15 had their Fantasy points drop by at least 30 percent and 10 by at least 40 percent. 

Lynch is still worth drafting as a first- or second-round pick, but be careful with him in 2014. And keep an eye on the battle for the No. 2 job in Seattle with Robert Turbin and Christine Michael because whoever wins that role could be a sleeper next season if Lynch misses time.


Marshawn Lynch gets fourth postseason touchdown


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/2/2014) Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch didn't play a huge role in the Super Bowl, but he did punch in a 1-yard touchdown, his fourth rushing score of the postseason. Lynch gained 17 yards in the first half before ripping off an 18-yard run on his first carry after halftime.

Lynch finished with 39 yards on 15 carries before giving way to backup Robert Turbin.


Marshawn Lynch talks to avoid fine


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/29/2014) Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch made another brief appearance before the media Wednesday, explaining, "I'm just here so I won't get fined, boss. That's the only reason why."

Lynch also questioned the notion that reporters act as a bridge to the fans. "If y'all say y'all is a bridge from the players to the fans, and the fans really ain't really tripping, then what's the point?" Lynch said. "What's the purpose? They got my back. I appreciate that. But I don't get what's the bridge being built for."


Marshawn Lynch 'just about action,' not 'unnecessary talk'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/28/2014) Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch, who took questions for under seven minutes on Media Day, acknowledged the obvious: he doesn't enjoy doing interviews.

“I’m just about action," he said. "You say ‘hut’ and there’s action. All the unnecessary talk, it don’t do nothing for me. I appreciate that people want to hear from me, but I just go to work and do my thing. You feel me?”

Asked about connecting to the fans through the media, Lynch replied, "My fans love me regardless. They love the Seahawks. They aren’t worried about what I’ve got to say. They just want to make sure I show up to perform.”


Why it's fun to block for Marshawn Lynch


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/27/2014) In two playoff games, Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch has broken or avoided a whopping 20 tackles. He's piled up 249 yards and three touchdowns on 50 carries.

"It's pretty cool to be able to block for a back who creates yards like that," center Max Unger told NFL.com. "When he does that and he's throwing piles, and he's carrying people before he goes down, it just makes you want to do your job that much better."


Two top Seahawks held out of Friday session


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(1/24/2014) Two Seahawks standouts were red-lighted from Friday practice, but are considered probable for the Super Bowl. Wide receiver Doug Baldwin (hip) and featured back Marshawn Lynch (knee) were both held out. Also out were cornerback Byron Maxwell (neck) and linebacker K.J. Wright (foot)

Defensive tackle Brandon Mebane (ankle) was limited.


Marshawn Lynch in a category of his own


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/20/2014) With his 40-yard touchdown run in Sunday's NFC Championship Game, Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch now has four scoring runs of at least 25 yards in the postseason. That's twice as many as any other back in NFL history, according to the Elias Sports Bureau.

Marshawn Lynch shatters 49ers with long TD run


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(1/19/2014) Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch, who scored two touchdowns his last time out, made his presence felt with another rushing touchdown in Sunday's NFC Championship game against the 49ers.

Lynch caught San Francisco's defense off balanced on a 3rd-and-1, as he erupted for a 40-yard touchdown run with 9:51 remaining in the third quarter. It was the second-longest touchdown run in the franchise's postseason history, and the longest touchdown run allowed by the 49ers during Jim Harbaugh's tenure. Lynch has all three of the team's longest touchdown run in postseason.

Lynch had 22 carries and 109 yards (5.0 yards per carry) and a touchdown in a 23-17 victory. He has 249 yards and two touchdowns on 50 carries over his last two playoff games. Seattle will travel to MetLife Stadium for a clash against the Broncos in the Super Bowl.

Marshawn Lynch, K.J. Wright cleared for NFC title game


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(1/19/2014) The Seahawks have ruled running back Marshawn Lynch and K.J. Wright, active for Sunday's NFC Championship game against the 49ers, despite being on the injury report.

Lynch was on the report for a non-injury related issue while Wright had been bothered by a foot injury. Both players were probable to play leading up to Sunday.

Vic Fangio: We must gang-tackle Marshawn Lynch


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(1/18/2014) Niners defensive coordinator Vic Fangio said his defense must swarm Seahawks super back Marshawn Lynch to control him Sunday in the NFL title game. Fangio added that allowing Lynch to get into one-on-one situations at the second level is a recipe for disaster, especially in a nickel package featuring five defensive backs.

Linebacker NaVorro Bowman agreed with that assessment. "I think that's where the game comes down to, if they can lighten up the box and run the ball," Bowman told the Sacramento Bee. "That's the reason why they run the ball so much when we're in the nickel, because the box is lighter. But if we can stop it, they have to go to another plan."

Not many defenses have stopped Lynch in the nickel or otherwise. He finished the regular season with 1,257 yards and 12 touchdowns on 301 carries. But the 49ers did hold him to 170 yards on 48 attempts for a relatively meager 3.5 yards per carry in two meetings this season.


Marshawn Lynch has dominant history vs. 49ers


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(1/16/2014) The Seahawks play the 49ers in the NFC Championship Game on Sunday, and running back Marshawn Lynch will look to remain dominant against San Francisco one more time.

The 49ers run defense has been unstoppable again, and they just shut down the Panthers last week, including two goal-line stands. They didn't allow a 100-yard rusher all season, and only three running backs have scored double digits in Fantasy points against them since Week 8.

Lynch was one of those three (along with DeAngelo Williams in Week 10 and Steven Jackson in Week 16), and he's been San Francisco's nemesis for the past three seasons. He has either a touchdown or 100 rushing yards in each of his past five meetings with the 49ers, and he's crushed them at home.

He had 21 carries for 107 yards and a touchdown and two catches for 24 yards in 2011, 26 carries for 111 yards and a touchdown and two catches for 19 yards and a touchdown in 2012 and 28 carries for 98 yards and two touchdowns and three catches for 37 yards and a touchdown in Week 2. In total, he has three 100-yard rushing games and seven total touchdowns in his past five outings against the 49ers, and he’s Seattle’s best chance to win this week.

While the matchup with San Francisco might seem daunting, we still like Lynch a lot in any Playoff Challenge leagues this week.


Marshawn Lynch feeling fresh despite 300-plus carries


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/15/2014) Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch set a franchise playoff record with 140 yards rushing in the win over the Saints. He's scored five touchdowns and produced three 100-yard rushing games in five career postseason games.

“He’s on it,” coach Pete Carroll told the team's website. “He feels great. His body’s in great shape. I was just watching him in the walkthrough, and just really so grateful that he feels so good right now. He’s physically in great shape. He’s really taking care of himself. The trainers and everybody have done a great job managing him through the season. It’s an enormous challenge for these guys physically to take it on.”

Lynch carried 28 times against New Orleans, tying the season high he set Week 2 against the 49ers. He ran for 98 yards and two touchdowns in the win over San Francisco, the closest any back came to cracking 100 against the 49ers all season. Lynch carried 20 times for 72 yards and a score in the Week 14 loss at San Francisco.

“He still looks fast and quick and ready to go again,” Carroll said. “Marshawn battles every week and when you give him chances, he makes plays. He just continues to crank it out for us.”


Seahawks receive little production from many on Saturday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(1/11/2014) The Seahawks received virtually no production offensively Saturday from anyone aside from running back Marshawn Lynch.

Among their minor contributors were wide receivers Doug Baldwin, who caught two passes for 30 yards, including a huge 24-yarder on the left sideline that kept a critical drive alive in the fourth quarter and led to a touchdown.

Also chipping in were wideout Jermaine Kearse, who caught one pass for 25 yards, and leading receiver Golden Tate, who managed just one catch for 13 yards. Tight end Zach Miller snagged one for 11 yards.

Running back Robert Turbin added 9 yards on three rushes.


Marshawn Lynch marches all over Saints in playoff victory


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(1/11/2014) Sometimes the offensive star of a game is hard to pick. But not Saturday in Seattle. Seahawks featured back Marshawn Lynch ran away with those honors.

He did it by running away from the Saints. He ran away from them to the tune of 140 yards on 28 carries and two touchdowns, including a 31-yarder on a sweet cut around left end with 2:40 remaining that all but sealed a victory and NFC championship game berth.

Not bad considering Lynch managed just 1 yard on his first three attempts. He rushed for 28 on his next three tries, including a 15-yard touchdown bolt off right tackle that gave his team the lead for good, and continued to pile up the yards.

Lynch was equally effective in both halves. He rushed for 69 yards on 15 attempts in the first half and 71 on 13 carries thereafter.

Marshawn Lynch hoping to change ways vs. St. Louis


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/26/2013) Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch endured his worst performance of the season the last time he faced the Rams. With still much to play for, Lynch will be seeking to get back on track against the Rams at home in Week 17.

Lynch had 18 carries for 71 yards (3.9 yards per carry) in Week 16 against the Cardinals. He has scored six of his 11 touchdowns over seven home games. In a 14-9 win in Week 8, Lynch faced a stacked box all night and could not break through. He was held to 23 yards on eight carries.

St. Louis has allowed 102.3 yards per game on the ground, which ranks seventh in the league. Opposing running backs have scored 20.27 Fantasy points in standard league against the Rams this season. Consider Lynch a must-start option in all formats for Sunday's regular season finale.
