Seahawks | Marshawn Lynch won't have to repay bonus

Wed, 17 Feb 2016 11:45:15 -0800

Retiring Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch won't have to forfeit his $5 million signing bonus as the team won't ask him for it.

Fantasy Tip: There is still some skepticism whether Lynch is actually retiring, but Thomas Rawls is an RB2 in fantasy if Lynch is gone.

Seahawks | Marshawn Lynch huge in postseason

Mon, 08 Feb 2016 13:57:10 -0800

Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch is eighth among running backs in postseason rushing yards (937) and third among running backs with six 100-yard rushing games in the playoffs. He gained 488 yards after contact in the postseason from 2010 to 2015, 270 more yards after contact than the next-highest running back over that span.

Fantasy Tip: Lynch certainly made his mark on the NFL, especially after being traded from the Buffalo Bills to the Seahawks. With Lynch retiring, Thomas Rawls will take over as Seattle's starting running back, and he should be considered a RB2 for next season's drafts.

Seahawks | Marshawn Lynch's plans confirmed

Mon, 08 Feb 2016 12:33:31 -0800

Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch's plans to retire were confirmed by Lynch's agent Monday, Feb. 8.

Fantasy Tip: It looks like Thomas Rawls will be the next man up for Seattle in 2016 after an impressive rookie campaign last season. Rawls tallied over 900 total yards and five total touchdowns in just 13 games and seven starts. Assuming Rawls is the starting running back, he has RB1 potential but should be drafted as a RB2.

Seahawks | Marshawn Lynch planning to retire

Sun, 07 Feb 2016 09:57:51 -0800

Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch has told people close to him that he plans to retire, according to multiple league sources.

Fantasy Tip: Lynch, who turns 30 in April, was limited to 111 carries, 417 yards and three touchdowns in seven regular-season games this year due to hamstring and abdominal injuries. Thomas Rawls will replace him in Seattle and should be viewed as a low-end RB2 or high-end RB3 in drafts.

Seahawks | Marshawn Lynch likely done in Seattle

Fri, 05 Feb 2016 08:59:37 -0800

Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch is unlikely to return to the Seahawks in 2016, according to NFL Network commentator Michael Robinson. Robinson, who is close friends with Lynch, said he knew what Lynch's intentions were regarding retirement, but he wasn't at liberty to say. "It's fair to assume (his days in Seattle are over,)" Robinson said.

Fantasy Tip: In the interview, there was a feeling a door was left open that Lynch could return in 2016 with another team. If Lynch returns, he'll be a low-end RB1 consideration.

Seahawks | Marshawn Lynch leaning towards sunset

Fri, 22 Jan 2016 10:22:23 -0800

Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch is leaning towards retirement, according to Seahawks general manager John Schneider.

Fantasy Tip: A lot can change over the course of the offseason, but Thomas Rawls impressed before he got hurt. He'll be a low-end RB2 or high-end RB3 in drafts if Lynch hangs 'em up.

Seahawks | Marshawn Lynch to be traded or released?

Tue, 19 Jan 2016 16:33:40 -0800

Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch is expected to be released or traded this offseason, according to Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times. The Seahawks could save $6.5 million against the salary cap by moving Lynch.

Fantasy Tip: This shouldn't be a big surprise, Lynch leaving would give the Seahawks more money and they still have Thomas Rawls, perhaps considered to be a poor man's Lynch. If Lynch leaves, Rawls will be in low-end RB1 to high-end RB2 territory.

Seahawks | Marshawn Lynch to have big cap hit

Tue, 19 Jan 2016 14:00:04 -0800

Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch will take an $11.5 million cap hit next season -- the highest cap hit for any running back under contract for 2016. Comparatively, RB Thomas Rawls will only take a $530,000 cap hit. Additionally, Rawls drastically out produced Lynch in 2015. Lynch gained 497 yards from scrimmage on 292 snaps, with 3.8 yards per carry and a 57% third-down conversion rate. Rawls gained 906 yards from scrimmage on 279 snaps, with 5.6 yards per carry (most in NFL) and a 75% third-down conversation rate.

Fantasy Tip: The formula certainly doesn't bode well for Lynch's future with Seattle. The Seahawks can pay less for more, essentially, at least based on 2015. Don't be surprised if Lynch is playing in a new uniform or watching football on his couch next season. If Lynch does not return, Rawls has RB1 potential.
