2014 Outlook
Depth Chart
Considered a mid-tier to low-end RB3 heading into the season, Lynch turned in his best season as a pro in 2011, finishing the year with career-highs in rushing yards (1,204) and rushing touchdowns (12). He also recorded his best season as a receiver since the 2008 season, catching 28 passes for 212 yards and one touchdown. A talented player whose maturity and dedication were questioned in the past, Lynch emerged as the Seahawks best player and a team leader who earned his “Beast Mode” moniker with several thundering runs over the past two seasons. He was arguably the biggest fantasy surprise at running back, finishing the year ranked fifth overall on the back of a outstanding finish to the season. He was the second ranked running back from Week 9 until the end of the season, gaining 941 yards and nine touchdowns on the ground over his final nine games. Surprisingly given the state of the team’s offense, Lynch was one of the most consistent fantasy producers at running back, finding the end zone in ten of his 15 games and registering double digit fantasy points ten times. A big payday this off-season and an arrest for DUI in July (that may result in a suspension) are red flags that could impact his fantasy value in 2012. Consider him a lower tier RB1 or upper tier RB2 but lower those expectations if his DUI results in a suspension.

Comment: Lynch was arrested July 14th and charged with suspicion of DUI. Given his past violations of the NFL's conduct code, there's a chance he could face suspension.

News From The Past 90 Days
Lynch expected to holdout of training camp     -- Thu Jul 24 7:10 pm --

Seahwaks set to begin camp on Friday
When the Seahawks begin training camp tomorrow, running back Marshawn Lynch is expected to be absent. That’s according to former Seahawk Michael Robinson, who is now a commentator on the NFL Network and said on-air moments ago that Lynch will hold out. “Marshawn Lynch just called me, we just talked,” Robinson said. “He said he will be holding out from training camp this year with the Seahawks.” (Seattle Times)

FF Today's Take: Lynch has two years left on his deal and is set to make $5 million this season and $5.5 million in 2015. He skipped OTAs but reported to minicamp in June. Given his reasonable salary and the depth of players behind him (Christine Michael & Robert Turbin), it's hard to imagine the Seahawks caving to his demands.
Marshawn Lynch arrives at mini-camp     -- Tue Jun 17 1:10 pm --

Seahawks RB still wants a new deal
The will-he, won’t-he? Marshawn Lynch debate has ended for now. The Seahawks running back reported for the team’s mandatory mini-camp Tuesday, putting to rest any ideas that he would hold out because he wants changes to his contract. Lynch apparently still would like some changes to his contract, which has two years remaining. (Seattle Times)

FF Today's Take: Lynch is avoiding fines by showing up but still wants to re-negotiate his deal. We'll see what happens in the coming weeks, but it would be unlikely for Seattle to give a veteran running back more than the $10.5 million he's already owed over the next two seasons.
Marshawn Lynch to skip Seahawks minicamp?     -- Thu Jun 12 7:00 am --

Reasoning unclear
When the Seattle Seahawks convene for mandatory minicamp next week, the team doesn't expect star running back Marshawn Lynch to be there, according to sources familiar with the team's thinking. Lynch reportedly hasn't appeared at any of the team's voluntary organized team activities (OTAs) thus far, is thought to be unhappy with his contract, though it's not clear if that is the only football-related reason the running back is considering skipping or reporting late to minicamp. (Yahoo Sports)

FF Today's Take: Lynch is set to earn $5 million this season and $5.5 million in 2015. He's skipped voluntary workouts before but has never missed a mandatory session in his career. It's hard to comment on this topic until we understand Lynch's reasoning, but he's not likely to get a renegotiated deal considering the league-wide decline in running back salaries. Perhaps he's miffed at the prospect of Christine Michael eating into his workload.
SEA to use running back by committee in 2014     -- Wed Jun 4 11:00 pm --

OC has high praise for Christine Michael
Bevell had high praise for the play so far of Christine Michael saying “we are really excited right now, what he’s done” and noted that Michael has improved particularly at “the details” of the position. Bevell also said that Michael could have a greater role this season and that could lead to having more of a “running back by committee” approach in 2014. (Seattle Times)

FF Today's Take: Speaking at an event Wednesday night, Seahawks offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell dropped the RBBC term on a select group of fans. If this statement holds true, it will have a significant impact on Marshawn Lynch's fantasy stock. Lynch has been a workhorse for the Seahawks the last three seasons, averaging 300 carries and 11 touchdowns during that span. Michael is a must-handcuff for any Lynch owner.
