Retired RB Marshawn Lynch is willing to play for the Oakland Raiders if they want to sign him, according to a source.

Fantasy Spin: Lynch announced his retirement a few weeks ago, but the Raiders lost Isaiah Crowell to a season-ending injury. The team has signed Doug Martin, so it is not known if they will be interested in Lynch. He probably will not have a lot of fantasy value if he joins the Raiders.

The Oakland Raiders selected Alabama running back Josh Jacobs with the No. 24 overall pick of the 2019 NFL draft. This was the selection that the Raiders acquired when they shipped defensive end Khalil Mack to the Bears last season. Jacobs split time in Alabama's backfield. He's a finisher with the rock in his hand but doesn't have a ton of breakaway speed. Jacobs is more of a north/south runner and is willing to block in all situations. He has great instincts and should be a big part of Oakland's backfield in 2019, as they lost Marshawn Lynch to retirement. Jacobs should have value in single-season formats this season, but the upside might be limited initially depending on how the Raiders utilize him.

Oakland Raiders RB Marshawn Lynch has decided to retire Wednesday, April 24.

Mar 25 4:53pm ET

Free-agent RB Marshawn Lynch (Raiders) will make a decision on whether or not to retire following the NFL Draft, according to Oakland Raiders general manager Mike Mayock. The Raiders have already said they would welcome Lynch back.

Fantasy Spin: Lynch turns 33 years old in April and is coming off injuries to his groin and core that caused him to miss 10 games last year, so it wouldn't be a surprise to see him hang up the cleats. There is value to be had in Oakland's backfield, but right now it's one to stay away from in the fantasy realm.

Feb 25 5:13pm ET

Oakland Raiders impending free-agent RB Marshawn Lynch is considered more likely to remain with the Raiders since they will be staying in Oakland. Lynch has said he is open to playing this season under the right circumstances and head coach Jon Gruden said the team would love to retain him.

Fantasy Spin: Lynch turns 33 this offseason and dealt with a core muscly injury that put him on Injured Reserve last year. He can at least serve as a short-yardage and goal-line back, but he's no more than an RB3 candidate if he does return.

Jan 22 2:00pm ET

Oakland Raiders head coach Jon Gruden said the team is unsure if impending free-agent running back Marshawn Lynch plans to play in 2019. Gruden said "we'd love to have him back" if he decides to play another season. Beast Mode will turn 33 in April and is coming off a season in which he played in just six games due to injury. Lynch ran 90 times for 376 yards (4.2 yards per carry) and three scores. Even if Lynch returns, he'd be more of a low-upside, injury-risk RB2 for Oakland that is more attractive in standard-scoring leagues.

Oakland Raiders RB Marshawn Lynch, an impending free agent this offseason, hasn't announced whether he plans on playing in 2019, but if he does, Raiders head coach Jon Gruden said Tuesday, Jan. 22, that 'we'd love to have him back.'

Fantasy Spin: Lynch will be 33 by the time next season rolls around, but he'd still be a fantasy RB2 consideration if were to be projected to be the primary RB in Oakland.

Jan 19 11:53am ET

Oakland Raiders RB Marshawn Lynch, who will be a free agent in two months, said on HBO's 'Real Time with Bill Maher' that he is open to playing in 2019 under the right circumstances.

Fantasy Spin: Lynch continues to recover from a strained groin and will turn 33 years old before the start of next season. In six games during the 2018 season, he rushed for 376 yards and had three touchdowns while averaging 4.2 yards per carry. Assuming he decides to come back for another year, he could be viewed as a low-end RB2 or flex option depending on where he lands.
