Marshawn Lynch: fantasy value not in danger after full practice

Stephen Brashear

Can Lynch go Beast Mode against the league's best defense? We break down the fantasy implications.

Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch (back) was a full participant in practice and should be in no danger of missing Sunday's game against the Chicago Bears. Lynch was limited on Wednesday, and has had many limited practices this season because of his back, but has suffered no setbacks and has not missed a game in 2012.

Lynch missed one game in 2011 because of his back spasms.

Fantasy Take: Week 12 against the Miami Dolphins ended a string of four straight 100-yard games for Lynch, as he was not able to turn on the beast mode. Things don't get much easier against the Chicago Bears, but fantasy owners can't be fearful of the matchup to the point where you don't start one of the league's top running backs.

The injury issue is a non-issue.
