Marshawn Lynch Injury Update: Beast Mode applies to fantasy this week

Andrew Weber-US PRESSWIRE

Marshawn Lynch is probable to face the Vikings. What can fantasy owners expect on Sunday?

Marshawn Lynch (back) put in a full week of practice and is listed as probable to face the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday. He is expected to play in the late-afternoon game.

Beast Mode is second in the league in rushing with his 757 rushing yards while adding four touchdowns. He also has 11 receptions for 84 yards in the passing game, too.

Fantasy Impact: Yeah, Lynch is fine. The Cal product was highly questionable back in Week 1 against the Arizona Cardinals with back spasms, but that's clearly in his rear-view mirror.

Fantasy owners should have extreme confidence in starting him after what Doug Martin did to the Vikings last week. He's a must-start back, while Robert Turbin has lost most of his handcuff appeal.
