2018 Outlook
Depth Chart
"Beast Mode" disappointed fantasy owners last season as the entire Raiders, and specifically their offensive line took a gigantic step back in 2017. Lynch accumulated just 891 yards on the ground, but did score nine touchdowns, for a pace of 4.3 yards per carry in what was a truly ugly offense.

One of the most underreported realities about Lynch's 2017 season is that he was actually excellent at eluding defenders both by juking and by running through them. Advanced metrics show that while his final totals left a lot to be desired, Lynch was actually way better than he should have been given the abysmal situation he was given. By comparison, Doug Martin - Lynch's new backfield-mate - was one of the least-efficient backs in the league by these same metrics. Unless there was some sort of monumental shift in the abilities of one or both of these players, it would stand to reason that Lynch should have no real concerns about being the primary back in Oakland this season.

The new Jon Gruden offense in Oakland figures to feature more west coast concepts, including passes to the running back, but those might not necessarily go Lynch's way. Lynch hasn't caught more than 36 passes in a season since 2008 and his yards per reception are often mediocre on the opportunities he does get. That does hurt his draft stock in PPR formats, but Lynch is one of the few backs in the league who has produced multiple double-digit touchdown seasons throughout his career, and there's a real chance that he does it again if the Oakland offense is even just a bit better than it was in 2017.

Lynch fights through a lot of injuries which is good for availability but can be unfortunate for fantasy purposes as he is often unproductive in the games he plays while injured. With just a bit of improvement in the offensive line, as many predict will happen, and a healthy Carr, Lynch could be a big time value this season, especially given the lack of serious competition behind him. He should be in line for around 250 total touches, which should make him a solid RB2 most weeks.
