Oakland Raiders running back Marshawn Lynch added another touchdown in their loss versus the Dolphins this Sunday. This makes three straight games for Lynch with a touchdown, providing some consistent fantasy value as an RB 2. He ended with 64 yards on 19 attempts, along with adding three receptions for 22 yards. The Raiders may not be winning games, but Lynch is adding fantasy value each and every game this season,
Oakland Raiders RB Marshawn Lynch rushed 19 times for 64 yards and a touchdown in Week 3 against the Miami Dolphins and he added three grabs for 22 yards.
Fantasy Spin: Lynch has scored a rushing touchdown in every game this season and he has at least two grabs in each of his three outings, too. Treat him as a RB3 or flex fantasy option heading into Week 4 against the Cleveland Browns.
Oakland Raiders running back Marshawn Lynch (shoulder) was limited in practice all week but has been taken off the final injury report for Week 3 against the Dolphins. Lynch will likely be limited in practice throughout the year. The veteran has scored a touchdown in both weeks of the season so far and will look to make it three against a stingy Dolphins front. Lynch is a volume-based RB2/3 this weekend.
Oakland Raiders RB Marshawn Lynch (shoulder) was limited in practice Friday, Sept. 21, but he was removed from the injury report ahead of the Week 3 game with the Miami Dolphins.
Fantasy Spin: Lynch should be good to go for the game, but it wouldn't be surprising to see a snap cap. Still, he is expected to get a bulk of the work with Doug Martin and Jalen Richard spelling him when needed. Target Lynch as an RB3 or flex fantasy option in leagues of 12 or more teams this week.
Oakland Raiders DT P.J. Hall (ankle) did not practice Friday, Sept. 21 and he has been ruled out for Week 3 against the Miami Dolphins. CB Nick Nelson (hamstring) was limited in practice and he is considered questionable. C Rodney Hudson (ankle), OG Gabe Jackson (pectoral) and RB Marshawn Lynch (shoulder) were limited, but they were removed from the injury report. WR Dwayne Harris (foot) and OT Brandon Parker (ankle) practiced in full and were also removed.
Oakland Raiders running back Marshawn Lynch is looking to add a touchdown for his third straight game against the Dolphins this Sunday. Lynch is the clear number one running back for the Raiders and has looked solid with his volume and touchdowns, but it hasn't been enough to grab a win this season. The Dolphins come in with the 1st DOVA versus the run, so this should prove to be a tough matchup for Lynch, along with the fact, the game script might have the Raiders fighting from behind.
Oakland Raiders RB Marshawn Lynch (shoulder) was a limited participant in practice for the second straight day Thursday, Sept. 20.
Fantasy Spin: Although Lynch has been limited in back-to-back days now, this shouldn't mess with his status when the Raiders take on the Dolphins on Sunday in Miami. He'll be taking on a defense that has fared well against the run thus far but he still remains a volume-based RB2.
Oakland Raiders RB Marshawn Lynch (shoulder) was limited during practice Wednesday, Sept. 19.
Fantasy Spin: Lynch probably is receiving a rest early in the week and should be fine for Week 3. He has rushed for 106 yards and two touchdowns during the first two games and could be a flex option in standard leagues.
Oakland Raiders running back Marshawn Lynch (shoulder) was limited in practice on Wednesday. Lynch is in no danger of sitting out in Week 3 against the Dolphins. Beast Mode has scored on the ground in both weeks so far, but he's averaging just 3.7 yards per carry on 29 total attempts. He'll remain in the RB3 conversation as a volume-based rusher this weekend against Miami.
Oakland Raiders RB Marshawn Lynch posted 18 carries, 65 yards and a touchdown against the Denver Broncos in Week 2. He caught two passes for three yards as well.
Fantasy Spin: Sixty-eight combined yards and a score isn't a bad afternoon for Lynch, whose 20 touches indicate his shoulder isn't a major issue. While his lack of involvement in the passing game is less than ideal, Lynch is clearly the focal point of Oakland's ground game, which is enough to give him RB3/FLEX value moving forward.
Oakland Raiders running back Marshawn Lynch had a touchdown in a second straight game, but it wasn't enough to help the team to a victory. He ended with 65 yards on 18 attempts with one touchdown, along with two catches in the passing game. Lynch has now seen double-digit carries in each of the Raiders two games, coming away with a touchdown in each of them. If the volume stays consistent, he can make a viable RB 2 in most weeks.
Oakland Raiders RB Marshawn Lynch (shoulder) fully participated in practice Friday, Sept. 14, and is not on the injury report for Week 2.
Fantasy Spin: Lynch rushed for 41 yards and one touchdown in Week 1 and will continue to receive most of the carries. He can be a low-end No. 2 running back or a flex option in standard leagues.
Oakland Raiders running back Marshawn Lynch (shoulder) and wide receiver Brandon LaFell (back) both practiced in full on Friday and were taken off the final injury report for Week 2 against the Broncos. Lynch will typically show up on the injury report, but he usually plays. He'll be a volume-based RB2/3 against Denver. LaFell was recently signed and was a healthy scratch last week, so there's no guarantee he'll be active even when healthy.
Oakland Raiders running back Marshawn Lynch will be facing off against the Broncos on Sunday, who only allowed a total of 64 rushing yards last week. Lynch had one touchdown to open the season last week versus the Rams, but likely won't be able to repeat that this week. The Raiders also come in six-point underdogs, which could mean the game script is no in their favor and thus have limited ability to run the ball later in the game. The upside is very limited for Lynch this week and should be a candidate for sitting.
Oakland Raiders RB Marshawn Lynch (shoulder) got in a full practice Thursday, Sept. 13, one day after he was a limited participant.
Fantasy Spin: This will probably be the schedule that Lynch follows for the duration of the campaign in order to keep him healthy. That being said, he's perfectly fine at the moment and enters the club's matchup in Denver on Sunday as an RB2. Look for him to get more work than he did on Monday night as well.
Oakland Raiders running back Marshawn Lynch (shoulder) and wide receiver Brandon LaFell (back) were both upgraded to a full practice on Thursday after being limited on Wednesday. Receiver Dwayne Harris (foot) was limited for the second straight day. Lynch was never expected to be in danger of missing Week 2 against the Broncos. Consider him a volume-based RB2/3 this weekend. LaFell probably doesn't have much of a grasp of the offense yet and is likely to be a healthy scratch again after the team re-signed Martavis Bryant. Harris is mostly an option on special teams.
Oakland Raiders RB Marshawn Lynch (shoulder) was limited in practice Wednesday, Sept. 12.
Fantasy Spin: This is just par for the course for the veteran tailback, as Lynch typically doesn't fully practice throughout the week. In other words, he'll be fine for the team's second contest of the year and is worth plugging in as an RB2 after his solid season debut. He should see more work as well.
Oakland Raiders running back Marshawn Lynch (shoulder) and wide receivers Brandon LaFell (back) and Dwayne Harris (foot) were all limited in practice on Wednesday. Beast Mode often rests early in the week whether he's dealing with an injury or not. He should be fine for Week 2 against the Broncos as a volume-based RB2 play. He carried the ball 11 times for 41 yards and a touchdown and added two catches for eight yards in the Week 1 loss to the Rams. LaFell and Harris are not on the fantasy radar.
Oakland Raiders running back Marshawn Lynch put in the Raiders only touchdown Monday night versus the Rams. That touchdown came on the very first drive of the game, which was his only impactful drive of the night. He ended with 41 yards on 11 carries, with a long run of 10 yards. The game script turned out of his favor and he saw a limited role as the game went on. The double-digit carries are fantasy owners want to see from him, but the Raiders offense slowed in the second half, limiting his production.
Oakland Raiders RB Marshawn Lynch rushed 11 times for a team-high 41 yards with a touchdown in the Week 1 game against the Los Angeles Rams on Monday, Sept. 10.
Fantasy Spin: Lynch bulled his way into the end zone and was vintage 'Beast Mode' in the first half. However, he wasn't used much in the second half, especially as the Raiders abandoned the run after falling behind. He remains a decent RB3 or flex fantasy option heading into Week 2 against the Denver Broncos.
