Description: Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times predicts Marshawn Lynch will still be the focal point of the Seahawks' offense in 2014 but that he'll lose a few carries per game to Christine Michael.
Insight: Lynch averaged 18.8 carries per game last season and Condotta predicts he'll be around 15-16 this year which will put him at 240-256 for the entire season. Lynch will still get all the goal-line work so he shouldn't drop out of the first round in fantasy drafts.

Description: Seattle halfback Marshawn Lynch arrived to mandatory minicamp Tuesday, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL.com.
Insight: Lynch didn't show up to voluntary OTAs because he wants to rework his contract and there was even a report from Rapoport last week that he was mulling retirement. According to ESPN, Lynch believes the Seahawks will negotiate with him in good faith because he showed up to minicamp. With Seattle OC Darrell Bevell mentioning that he wanted to use a committee at running back this season and a contract dispute looming, Lynch could be a riskier pick than expected in fantasy leagues.

Description: Seattle halfback Marshawn Lynch isn't happy about his contract situation and is considering sitting out next week's mandatory mini-camp.
Insight: NFL Network's Ian Rapoport even said retirement could be an option for Lynch. This would be a massive blow to the Seahawks and fantasy owners alike. Lynch logged 1,257 yards on 301 carries last season while leading Seattle to its first Super Bowl. He's only 28.

Description: Seahawks offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell said last week that the team would use a "running back by committee" in 2014, but he backtracked from that comment Monday, according to beat writer John Boyle.
Insight: Bevell said he meant that he would be using a committee in OTAs rather than during the season. Marshawn Lynch has handled an average of 329 touches the last three seasons but may drop to 285 this year as the team gets 2013 second-round pick Christine Michael more involved.

Description: Despite logging 300+ carries in each of his last two seasons, the Seahawks have no plans to reduce Marshawn Lynch's workload in 2014. SOURCE: Seahawks.com
Insight: Lynch has shown a remarkable level of resilience the last few seasons but eventually the huge workload is bound to catch up with him. Hopefully that doesn't happen in 2014 but fantasy owners need to be prepared.

Description: Seahawks halfback Marshawn Lynch will plead guilty to reckless driving. The charge stems from a 2012 DUI arrest. SOURCE: Terry Blount, ESPN
Insight: His punishment will be a fine and two years probation. Lynch's lawyer believes he'll be able to avoid suspension by the NFL. Assuming that's the case, Lynch (1,257 rushing yards, 12 TD in 2013) should be a top-ten selection in all fantasy leagues this summer.
 
1/30/2014 12:12:00 PM
Description: Seattle running back Marshawn Lynch sat out Wednesday's practice but it looks like he's just getting some extra rest.
Insight: Lynch has run for 249 yards and three touchdowns in his two playoff games this season. He's still a fantasy "beast" and the Super Bowl won't be any different. The Seahawks will want to keep the ball out of Peyton Manning's hands and the best way to do that is with Lynch rushing at least 25 times.
 
12/15/2013 12:05:00 PM
Description: Seattle running back Marshawn Lynch sat out some practice time with a shoulder injury, but he's active for Sunday as expected.
Insight: He's a fantasy "beast" with 1,042 yards rushing, 234 receiving and 12 touchdowns. That shouldn't change in Week 15.
 
12/12/2013 2:30:00 PM
Description: Seattle running back Marshawn Lynch sat out Wednesday's practice with a shoulder injury.
Insight: We don't think its too serious, but continue to watch to make sure he gets in at least one practice this week. He's a fantasy "beast" with 1,042 yards rushing, 234 receiving and 12 touchdowns.
 
11/10/2013 6:26:00 PM
Description: Seattle half back Marshawn Lynch generated 145 yards on the ground Sunday in an easy win over Atlanta.
Insight: He also added his eighth touchdown of the season. The 27-year-old is on pace for 1,394 rushing yards this year, which would be the second-highest output of his career.
 
10/30/2013 7:59:00 PM
Description: Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch did not practice Wednesday due to a knee injury, according to Liz Mathews of 710 ESPN Seattle.
Insight: Seattle coach Pete Caroll did not mention any knee issues with Lynch during his Wednesday press conference. Lynch often doesn't practice on Wednesday's anyway for rest, but when that happens he's listed as NIR (not injury related).
 
10/15/2013 8:20:00 PM
Description: Seahawks halfback Marshawn Lynch didn't practice Tuesday due to a hip injury.
Insight: He missed practice time last week for the same reason but had 155 total yards and two touchdowns Sunday against the Titans. He's in no danger of missing Thursday's game against the Cardinals.
 
10/13/2013 7:42:00 PM
Description: Seahawks halfback Marshawn Lynch steamrolled the Titans on Sunday (21 carries, 77 yards, 2 TD, 4 rec, 78 yds).
Insight: It wasn't one of Lynch's more efficient efforts (just 3.7 ypc) but his two touchdowns are sure to have fantasy owners smiling. Week in and week out, Lynch continues to be one of fantasy's most consistent point producers at the running back position.
 
10/13/2013 2:53:00 PM
Description: Seattle running back Marshawn Lynch (hip) is active for Week 6.
Insight: Lynch's fantasy owners can breathe easy. He's a must start. Lynch has carried the ball exactly 17 times in four of five games this season.
 
10/12/2013 8:53:00 PM
Description: Ignore the "questionable" label attached to Marshawn Lynch (hip). The Seahawks halfback is all systems go for Sunday's contest against Tennessee.
Insight: Well, at least that's what ESPN's Adam Schefter is telling us. Lynch hasn't faced the Titans since 2009 (37 yards on nine rushes in that game).
 
10/11/2013 5:52:00 PM
Description: Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch didn't practice Friday due to a hip injury and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Titans, but coach Pete Carroll indicated that Lynch should be able to play. SOURCE: Brady Henderson, 710 ESPN Seattle
Insight: Lynch has 410 rushing yards and 96 receiving yards with four total touchdowns this season, but three of his scores came in Week 2. The running back should be able to play Sunday against Tennessee and is a RB1.
 
9/29/2013 6:14:00 PM
Description: Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch has alternated good and bad games this season, and Week 4 was one of his good ones. He had 98 yards and a touchdown on 17 carries and also caught three passes for 45 yards against Houston.
Insight: Lynch already has eight catches this season. He came into Sunday's game averaging just 3.4 yards per carry, but he broke free for a 43-yard run against the Texans.
 
7/12/2013 3:25:00 PM
Description: Seattle running back Marshawn Lynch's 2012 DUI arrest is still out there, but with a Dec 27 court date and the regular season ending on Dec 29, fantasy owners should not have to worry about him missing any time because of it.
Insight: Lynch had a monster season in 2012-13 with 1,590 rushing yards, 10 100-yard games and 12 total touchdowns. Fantasy owners can handcuff Robert Turbin in case of injury, but it appears they won't have to worry about a suspension.
 
7/6/2013 2:45:00 PM
Description: Seattle running back Marshawn Lynch still has a 2012 DUI arrest hanging over him, but it's appearing more and more likely that the case won't be decided until late 2013 or 2014, according to a Tacoma News Tribune report.
Insight: Lynch had a monster season in 2012-13 with 1,590 rushing yards, 10 100-yard games and 12 total touchdowns, so fantasy owners hope the outcome doesn't get decided until after this season is over. Fantasy owners might want to handcuff Robert Turbin just in case, but it might not be necessary.
 
1/13/2013 7:11:00 PM
Description: Seattle halfback Marshawn Lynch struggled in Sunday's playoff loss to Atlanta.
Insight: Lynch had recorded five straight 100-yard games before Sunday's lackluster performance (46 yards and a lost fumble). Despite his struggles, Lynch was still able to find the end zone on Sunday. He's now scored at least once in three of his four career playoff games.
