Marshawn Lynch goes off for fantasy owners in loss

Andrew Weber-US PRESSWIRE

Marshawn Lynch beasted his way to another 100-yard game in Week 8. We break down the fantasy implications.

Marshawn Lynch had another solid fantasy day in Week 8. Against the Detroit Lions, Lynch had 12 carries for 105 yards and one TD. Most of those yards came in the second quarter, where he sprinted untouched for a 77-yard TD.

For the most part, Lynch was held in check as the Seahawks lost 28-24.

Fantasy Impact: Lynch ceded more snaps to Robert Turbin in the second half as he was apparently gassed. Sure, most of his numbers came on just one play, but fantasy owners won't complain about the final stat line.

Lynch is still one of the most consistent, reliable fantasy backs in the league, and fantasy owners should keep rolling him out as a RB1 against the Vikings in Week 9.
