Marshawn Lynch tops the century mark in Week 7, fantasy value remains high

Thearon W. Henderson

Marshawn Lynch rushed for over 100 yards against the 49ers. We break down the fantasy implications.

Marshawn Lynch carried the ball 19 times for 103 yards against the 49ers on Thursday night. The Seahawks' No. 1 back averaged a solid 5.4 yards per carry against one of the league's tougher run defenses, but the rest of his offense didn't provide much support throughout the night.

Fantasy Impact: After a disappointing outing against the Patriots last week, Lynch bounced back nicely against one of his divisional foes. Russell Wilson couldn't get anything going in the passing game, so the one-dimensional offense ultimately struggled.

Lynch continues to be a must-start each week. He'll look to continue his success on the ground against the Detroit Lions next week. If Wilson and the passing game can open up a bit, Lynch might actually get a chance to find the end zone.
