Comment: Will need an injury from Marshawn Lynch in order to contribute on a regular basis but this kid has massive upside appeal in a run-first offense.
|Lynch expected to holdout of training camp|
Seahwaks set to begin camp on Friday
By: Mike Krueger | Thu Jul 24, 7:10 pm
|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)|
FFToday'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 to skip Seahawks minicamp?|
By: Mike Krueger | Thu Jun 12, 7:00 am
|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.

FFToday'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|
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)|
FFToday'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.
