Seahawks | Big stalemate in Marshawn Lynch talks

Thu, 24 Jul 2014 16:51:17 -0700

Updating a previous story, Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch and the organization are at a stalemate in talks regarding a new deal. Lynch wants top-three money for the position, while team officials are unwilling to give him a new deal, believing he is paid adequately. Lynch showed up for minicamp workouts only to avoid being fined.

Fantasy Tip: This could get ugly before it clears up for fantasy owners. Prepare for a lengthy standoff, because Lynch tends to hold to his convictions, and the Seahawks have quality backups in RBs Christine Michael and Robert Turbin.

Seahawks | Marshawn Lynch holding out

Thu, 24 Jul 2014 16:06:21 -0700

Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch will hold out of training camp, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Lynch is following suit after the recent and short-lived Jamaal Charles holdout. A holdout is always something to keep tabs on, but it's not likely Lynch will miss any playing time. He's still an RB1 in all formats.

Seahawks | Christine Michael doing well

Sun, 20 Jul 2014 13:22:12 -0700

Seattle Seahawks RB Christine Michael's work this spring has done nothing to dismiss the thought that he will receive regular carries this season.

Fantasy Tip: It's still not known how many he'll receive, but Marshawn Lynch remains the lead back. Lynch is a low-end RB1, and Michael is a RB4 with upside.

Seahawks | Marshawn Lynch likely to see bulk of load

Thu, 17 Jul 2014 07:07:53 -0700

Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch, who averaged 18.8 carries a game last season, is expected to be scaled back some this year. However, he's still expected to receive 15 or 16 carries per game with RB Christine Michael filling in at times.

Fantasy Tip: There were reports the team was going to use a committee at running back, but they seem to be exaggerated right now. Lynch remains a low-end RB1, and Michael is a flex option in good matchups.

Seahawks | Marshawn Lynch reports to camp

Tue, 17 Jun 2014 18:07:07 -0700

Updating a previous report, Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch (ankle) attended the team's first day of minicamp Tuesday, June 17, but did not practice because of a sore ankle.

Fantasy Tip: His presence at minicamp should ease any concerns about whether Lynch might be retiring, and he will continue to be the main back in Seattle. He will likely give up some carries to Christine Michael, but Lynch is still a No. 1 fantasy running back.

Seahawks | Marshawn Lynch expected to participate in minicamp

Tue, 17 Jun 2014 11:15:44 -0700

Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch is expected to participate in the team's three-day minicamp. Lynch will attend the minicamp because he does not want to pay the fine for missing the practices and he believes the team will negotiate with him in good faith on contract changes.

Seahawks | Marshawn Lynch unlikely to retire

Fri, 13 Jun 2014 15:54:58 -0700

Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch is unlikely to retire this offseason, according to Tennessee Titans SS Jordan Babineaux. Babineaux said Lynch has been working on his training separate from the team. The Seahawks aren't likely to give Lynch an extension because he's already paid like a top-five running back.

Fantasy Tip: We don't see Beast Mode walking away from the game just yet, either. He may be spelled more often this year by Christine Michael, but Lynch remains a clear-cut No. 1 fantasy running back.

Seahawks | Marshawn Lynch considering retirement?

Thu, 12 Jun 2014 17:11:37 -0700

Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch told two teammates last season that he could retire if the team won the Super Bowl, and that option is still realistic at this point, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: If Lynch decides to walk away, Robert Turbin and Christine Michael likely would share carries this upcoming season. Michael likely would have more value because of his performance during organized team activities and his potential to be a lead back, but Turbin would also have solid value.

Seahawks | Haven't been informed Marshawn Lynch will miss OTAs

Thu, 12 Jun 2014 14:15:44 -0700

Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch has not informed the team of his desire to skip organized team activities. He wants a new contract and may end up telling the team he won't participate.

Fantasy Tip: Lynch remains a target for the bottom half of Round 1, although additional missed time could be cause for concern. Christine Michael continues to impress during OTAs and could eat into Lynch's carries this season, as he appears to be his heir apparent.

Seahawks | Marshawn Lynch expected to skip minicamp

Wed, 11 Jun 2014 19:31:28 -0700

Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch is expected to skip the team's mandatory minicamp next week, according to sources familiar with the team's thinking. Lynch skipped the team's visit to the White House in May, and reportedly hasn't appeared at any of the team's voluntary organized team activities (OTAs). He is thought to be unhappy with his contact, though it's not clear if that is the only football-related reason the running back is considering skipping or reporting late to minicamp.
