Marshawn Lynch manages an average fantasy performance

Jeremy Brevard-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch gained just shy of 100 total yards in his team's Week 5 win against the Carolina Panthers. We break down the fantasy implications.

Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch gained just shy of 100 total yards in his team's Week 5 win against the Carolina Panthers. Lynch has been a reliable fantasy stud this season, but he did not pile up the points despite a soft matchup. He averaged just four yards per carry and caught only one pass. The Seahawks managed a victory, however, so I'm sure Lynch doesn't mind the modest statistics.

Fantasy Impact: Marshawn Lynch is still a solid fantasy option. He is likely a top-12 fantasy football running back the rest of the season due to his talent and large role in the Seahawks' offense. Fantasy owners were hoping for a bigger day against the Panthers, though.
