Former Seattle Seahawks offensive line coach Tom Cable will become the next offensive line coach for the Oakland Raiders under new head coach Jon Gruden. This marriage makes sense because of running back Marshawn Lynch's relationship with Cable from their time together in Seattle. It could also mean that the veteran running back is considering returning for another year with the Raiders. Cable is also familiar with the Raiders, as he served as the head coach for 44 games from 2008 to 2010, and he was also the offensive line coach in Oakland in 2007 and 2008.
Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr completed 19 of his 28 passes for 243 yards, a touchdown and an interception in a 30-10 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 17. RB Marshawn Lynch rushed 19 times for 101 yards and added two catches for 18 yards. WR Amari Cooper caught three passes for 115 yards and a touchdown, and WR Michael Crabtree caught two passes for 17 yards. TE Jared Cook finished with three catches for 35 yards.
Raiders' RB Marshawn Lynch ran for 101 yards on 19 carries but no touchdowns in Sunday's loss in Los Angeles Chargers.
Oakland Raiders RB Marshawn Lynch has a $600,000 bonus in his contract for reaching 800 rushing yards this season and a $250,000 bonus for nine rushing touchdowns, according to a source. Entering Week 17's game against the Los Angeles Chargers, he has 790 rushing yards and seven rushing touchdowns, meaning that he needs 10 rushing yards to earn $600,000 and two rushing touchdowns to earn $250,000.
While his overall numbers have been down lately, Oakland Raiders running back Marshawn Lynch has been force fed the ball with regularity, which puts him firmly in the RB2 mix for Week 17. Lynch has had a strong back half of 2017, even if his numbers do not always show it. He should see 20 touches with ease, as the Raiders play a "home" game in Los Angeles against the Chargers. Even without a touchdown, Lynch should rack up roughly 100 scrimmage yards and be a solid RB2.
Logging 27 total touches, Marshawn Lynch ground out every yard he could against a brutal Eagles run defense, totaling 95 yards rushing and -3 yards receiving, on two catches. Lynch was running with purpose throughout the game, however, he did fumble the ball late in the game on a crucial drive, which put a damper on his night overall. Lynch will still be a solid RB2 next week as the Raiders take on the Chargers in LA, as the team is clearly content force-feeding him the ball, but he will be limited by the Raider offense's overall ineffectiveness.
Oakland Raiders RB Marshawn Lynch racked up 95 rushing yards on 25 carries in the team's Week 16 loss Monday, Dec. 25, opposite the Philadelphia Eagles. He also lost a fumble.
While Lynch has had a much better end to 2017 compared to his start, the Raiders look to be down two starting offensive lineman against a beastly Philadelphia defense, which should put a hamper on his fantasy prospects. Lynch has still down ability to create on his own, but running lanes look to be particularly small and scarce, which will cause his fantasy results to be directly tied to his chances at a touchdown. While Lynch could have a decent RB2 game, his floor is much lower than in recent weeks and he should be considered an RB3.
BeastMode will continue pay dividends to fantasy owners patient enough to wait out his ugly first half, as Marshawn Lynch looks to be a locked-in RB2 against the Dallas Cowboys. Even when given fewer touches than his 20+ late-season average in last week's loss to the Chiefs, Lynch was still able to put up solid numbers, which should inspire confidence in Lynch being somewhat matchup-proof. The Cowboys are not likely to build a big lead early, as well, which should mean Lynch will remain a part of the Raiders' gameplan for a good portion of the game, allowing him to avoid last week's dip in touches. Fire up Lynch as an RB2.
Oakland Raiders RB Marshawn Lynch (non-injury) is not participating in practice Thursday, Dec. 14.
Marshawn Lynch finally hit a speedbump in his strong finish to the 2017 season, as the Raiders fell behind early to the Chiefs, which lead to an ignorance of the running game for most of the afternoon. Still, Lynch managed an impressive 61 yards rushing, three yards receiving, and a touchdown on seven carries and one catch. Lynch is the best part of the Raiders offense, and the Raiders have been trying to feed him as much as possible, but his fantasy prospects are going to be limited by how inept the Raiders' passing attack is. Lynch will still be an RB2 for the rest of the fantasy playoffs, but both his ceiling and floor will be lower than expected.
With the Raiders' offensive line playing their best football as the season comes to a close, Marshawn Lynch should be in for a big day on the ground as the Raiders take on the Chiefs Week 14. Lynch has been the most consistent player on the Raiders' offense the past several weeks, and the Raiders ought to get him involved rather heavily against a middling Kansas City run defense. The Chiefs secondary will be without Marcus Peters, as well, which will lead to them, presumably, dropping more defenders in coverage, leaving Lynch with lighter boxes. Regardless, Lynch is on a hot streak and should be a reliable RB2 for Week 14.
Oakland Raiders RB Marshawn Lynch (non-injury) did not participate in practice Thursday, Dec. 7.
Oakland Raiders RB Marshawn Lynch opened the scoring with a 51-yard touchdown in the first quarter of Week 13 against the New York Giants, and he finished with 17 runs for 101 yards and the score.
Continuing his recent hot streak, Marshawn Lynch broke 100 yards rushing for the first time as a Raider on Sunday, with 101 yards on the ground, 20 through the air on two catches, and a rushing touchdown. Lynch had a spectacular 21 yard play on his second catch, as he showed his signature elusiveness and power, dragging Giants defenders for a Raider first down. Lynch has simply been fantastic, and while 60% of his yards came on the Raiders' first drive, Lynch will continue to be a high-end RB2 against Kansas City next week.
Oakland Raiders' RB Marshawn Lynch ran for 101 yards on 17 carries with one touchdown in Sunday's win against the Giants.
Picking up steam headed into the fantasy playoffs, Marshawn Lynch should continue to build on his recent success against a struggling Giants team Week 13. Lynch has finally had his touch-count restrictions lifted and has looked better than ever because of it. Particularly with Amari Cooper and Michael Crabtree out, the Raiders ought to lean on their run game heavily to outlast the Giants until Crabtree returns next week. Lynch seems to be in sync with the Raiders' offensive line and is once again punishing people like he used to. Lynch will be an RB2 Week 13.
