Marshawn Lynch disappoints fantasy owners

Marc Serota

Marshawn Lynch couldn't do anything against the Dolphins defense. We break down the fantasy implications.

Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch had a rare fantasy turkey in Week 12. Against the Miami Dolphins, Lynch rushed 19 times for just 46 yards and no touchdowns. It snapped his streak of four consecutive 100-yard games.

The Seahawks went on to lose a 24-21 heartbreaker.

Fantasy Impact: Miami's aggressive defense had the Seahawks on their heels all day, so they could never get Lynch going. He also lost significant snaps to rookie Robert Turbin

I would just write it off as an "off" week. This was a rare stinker game from one of the most consistent and reliable fantasy backs in the league. Keep starting him as an RB1 against the Bears in Week 13.
