Marshawn Lynch Fantasy: Seahawks RB Has Bad Game, But Scores TD

Marshawn Lynch didn't have a good game against the Cincinnati Bengals by any stretch of the imagination, but if you started him in your fantasy league, you got bailed out. Despite the fact that the Seattle Seahawks RB managed just 24 yards on his 16 carries, he also took in one of those rushes for a touchdown.

The Seahawks were without Lynch in Week 7 and they struggled to put points on the board against a sorry Cleveland Browns team. In Week 8, Lynch was active, but the Seahawks had a much tougher test in the Cincinnati Bengals.

Lynch hasn't set the world on fire this year, but he scored two touchdowns and averaged 4.1 yards per carry coming into this game. It's hard to set anything on fire when you've been given only 58 carries in five games. When he's received his biggest workload, against the Giants, he blew up for 98 yards, though he lost a fumble.
