Value Down- Marshawn Lynch

After his playoff run against the Saints it was clear Marshawn Lynch was sure to be one overrated fantasy back this season.

Analysis: Lynch did just play a game against Pittsburgh so we can forgive his lack of numbers this week but we cannot forgive Seattle’s lack of commitment to a ground game over the past year. Lynch has just nineteen carries through two games for just forty-four yards. In fact, Lynch has only amassed 1,187 rushing yards in his last twenty-nine games. He was rated in the thirty range among running backs and he will not live up to even a low tier RB3. It’s time to start looking at backs who carry the rock more considering Seattle has ran the ball 17.5 times per game this year, that just isn’t going to cut it in the fantasy world.

Going forward in the search for back who offers a bit of upside down the road, keep an eye on Delone Carter. Thomas Jones becomes a must add with the injury to Charles in KC. Lynch was never going to have a RB3 year and it’s a shame so many believed the hype from one playoff run.
