Oakland Raiders RB Marshawn Lynch (groin) will not come off injured reserve after the team designated OT Donald Penn to return, which is their maximum second player off IR.
Fantasy Spin: At one point it looked possible Lynch could perhaps return in Week 16 but now that can no longer happen. Doug Martin has filled in capably in his absence, giving those Lynch owners who were able to scoop him up a seamless transition. Lynch, meanwhile, may be done for good after this year.
Oakland Raiders running back Marshawn Lynch (groin) is officially out for the rest of the season after the team designated right tackle Donald Penn (groin) as their second player to return from Injured Reserve. Beast Mode made it only six games in his second and final year with the Raiders, rushing the ball 90 times for 376 yards (4.2 yards per carry) and three touchdowns. He'll be 33 years old next April and may decide to hang up his cleats instead of signing with another organization. Doug Martin and Jalen Richard will continue to split the workload in the final four games of the season in a lost year for the black and silver.
Updating previous reports, Oakland Raiders RB Marshawn Lynch (groin) had surgery Thursday, Oct. 18, to repair his groin injury. He's hopeful to return this season and would eligible to return from the Reserve/Injured list in Week 16.
Fantasy Spin: Pay your respects to Beast Mode, but stick a fork in him in fantasy for this year - possibly altogether.
Oakland Raiders running back Marshawn Lynch is headed to Injured Reserve, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network. Lynch was ruled out for about a month last week after their game against the Seahawks and now officially on IR. He is able to return in 8 weeks, but until then the backfield work will be split by Doug Martin, Jalen Richard and potentially Deandre Washington, but their roles are unclear as of now.
Updating a previous report, Oakland Raiders RB Marshawn Lynch (core, groin) was put on the Reserve/Injured list more so because of a core muscle issue than his groin injury. He may have had surgery this weekend. If he did then he could return in eight weeks.
Oakland Raiders RB Marshawn Lynch (groin) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Monday, Oct. 22.
Fantasy Spin: Look for Doug Martin to lead the Raiders in carries going forward, but Jalen Richard is the Oakland running back you want on your squad. He has been heavily involved in the passing game and will see more carries with Lynch out. Starting Richard as a PPR flex going forward is a viable strategy.
Updating a previous report, Oakland Raiders RB Marshawn Lynch (groin) may be placed on the Reserve/Injured list because of his groin injury.
Fantasy Spin: Lynch would miss at least eight weeks if he placed on the Reserve/Injured list, so he would not have much fantasy value for the rest of the season. Doug Martin is expected to receive a majority of the work at running back at this point but is probably only a flex option in standard leagues.
Updating a previous report, Oakland Raiders running back Marshawn Lynch (groin) is a strong candidate to go on Injured Reserve. Lynch will miss at least a month with his injury and could be done for the year if he's put on IR. Doug Martin should handle the early downs in his absence, with Jalen Richard the primary pass-catcher and third-down back. Expect Deandre Washington to be active on game days now. Both Martin and Richard should be picked up immediately if they are available and if you are in need of a running back or own Lynch.
Oakland Raiders RB Marshawn Lynch (groin) is expected to miss at least one month due to a groin injury after undergoing an MRI earlier in the week.
Fantasy Spin: There is reportedly been some initial talk of Lynch landing on the Reserve/Injured list, so it is possible we may not see him again this season. While fantasy owners of Doug Martin may be feeling good about their investment at the moment, Martin hasn't done much to generate excitement in his first year with the Raiders, averaging 3.7 yards per carry on 27 attempts. As a result, Jalen Richard could earn a few more early-down snaps and enter flex consideration on a weekly basis.
Oakland Raiders running back Marshawn Lynch is out at least one month due to a groin injury, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network. The Raiders are on a bye this week after their loss in London versus the Seahawks and Lynch had the MRI this week to confirm the injury. In his absence, backup Doug Martin should see an expanded role in the offense, while Jalen Richard should continue to be the pass-catching back, where he has strong PPR value.
Oakland Raiders RB Marshawn Lynch (groin) is expected to undergo MRI to determine the severity of the groin strain he suffered in Week 6 against the Seattle Seahawks. Head coach Jon Gruden told reporters he was hopeful he could still play through the injury but also expressed concern about Lynch's healthy.
Fantasy Spin: Gruden also told reporters he would not have an update on Lynch's status until the team comes off its bye in Week 7. While Jalen Richard has been the best fantasy-point producer behind Lynch in the Oakland backfield, Doug Martin would be the first in line to handle the 17.5 touches per week Lynch has been averaging if the latter is forced to miss any time. Until owners know more about Lynch's prognosis, they should make an effort to snag Martin off waivers.
Oakland Raiders RB Marshawn Lynch (groin) could have a long-term issue with his groin ailment, according to head coach Jon Gruden.
Fantasy Spin: The spotlight will be on Jalen Richard and Doug Martin if Lynch is sidelined for an extended period. Richard in particular is an attractive PPR option as he has caught 31 passes in six games this year. Richard and Martin are both on the waiver-wire radar, but Richard's blip is brighter.
Oakland Raiders head coach Jon Gruden said he is concerned that running back Marshawn Lynch's (groin) injury could be a long-term injury. Lynch will be evaluated during the team's Week 7 bye. Beast Mode started off the season with a touchdown in three straight games, but he's gone scoreless in three games since then and has 86 yards on 24 carries in the last two games with the Raiders frequently playing behind. He's a volume-based RB2 that needs favorable game script when healthy, but it appears the 32-year-old back could already be breaking down. If his owners don't already have Doug Martin or Jalen Richard handcuffed, take the bye week as an opportunity to pick one or both of them up. Richard has been the more effective fantasy back in PPR leagues with the Raiders often needing to pass to play catch-up.
Oakland Raiders RB Marshawn Lynch rushed 13 times for 45 yards in Week 6 against the Seattle Seahawks in London and he added three receptions for 14 yards.
Fantasy Spin: It wasn't a great performance, but this was a big-time defensive game with very little fantasy standouts. You'll need to find another RB3 or flex fantasy option in Week 7 with the Raiders on a bye.
Oakland Raiders running back Marshawn Lynch is set to take on his former team Seattle this Sunday in London. Lynch is coming off a very slow game where he only had nine carries for 31 yards last Sunday versus the Chargers. Prior to that, he had one touchdown or over 100 yards in the first four games of the season. The Seahawks come in with the 17th DVOA (Defense-adjusted Value Over Average) against the rush, which should put Lynch in a spot to return to the production he had to start the season.
Oakland Raiders OL Kelechi Osemele (knee) and DT Frostee Rucker (neck) were limited in practice Friday, Oct. 12, and are listed as doubtful for Week 6 versus the Seattle Seahawks. S Karl Joseph (hamstring) was also limited in practice Friday and is listed as questionable. C Rodney Hudson (ankle), DT Maurice Hurst (shoulder), OG Gabe Jackson (pectoral), LB Emmanuel Lamur (foot), RB Marshawn Lynch (hip) and OT Kolton Miller (knee) were all limited in practice Friday but have been removed from the injury report.
Oakland Raiders RB Marshawn Lynch (hip) was limited in practice for the second consecutive day Thursday, Oct. 11.
Fantasy Spin: This is the typical routine for the veteran tailback, as the club does their part in managing his reps. He's a must-start option this week in London against the Seahawks -- not just because of his early-season success -- but also due to the fact that this will be his first game opposite his old team. Look for Lynch to carry the rock often, perhaps even more than usual.
Oakland Raiders running back Marshawn Lynch (hip) was limited in practice on Wednesday. It always seems to be something for Lynch, but he should have no issues suiting up in Week 6 against the Seahawks. After opening up the year with touchdowns in the first three games, he has now gone two games in a row without finding the end zone, and he had his first game under double digits in carries in the blowout loss to the Chargers in Week 5. Beast Mode should remain a volume-based RB2 this weekend.
Oakland Raiders RB Marshawn Lynch (hip) was limited during practice Wednesday, Oct. 10.
Fantasy Spin: Lynch was held to only 40 total yards last week and received only nine carries during the game. He should be more involved against the Seattle Seahawks this week and could be a flex option in standard leagues.
Oakland Raiders running back Marshawn Lynch had his worst game of the season in Sunday's loss to the Chargers. Prior to this game, Lynch had posted a touchdown or 100 rushing yards in each of his four games this season, but that streak was snapped today. He was held to only 31 yards on nine carries, both of which were season lows for him. If he can return to the form he had in the first few weeks of the season, he will make a good RB 2 play each week.
