Marshawn Lynch is active. We break down the fantasy implications.
Analysis: Lynch said all week that he was able to play and he was also practicing this week. The main concern with back spasms is when they flare up during strenuous activity. Lynch should still be starting in almost every league even though the Cardinals do have an improved defense this year. Robert Turbin should be firmly on all benches, but we'd recommend owning him in every league. Lynch does also help Russell Wilson and it should be in interesting contest on the road for the rookie.
