Marshawn Lynch injury: Misses practice, is fantasy value in danger?

Stephen Brashear

Could the league's number two rusher miss Week 10? We break down the fantasy implications.

Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch missed practice on Wednesday with back and wrist ailments. Lynch has been held back in practice for weeks with lingering back issues, but the wrist injury is new. If the wrist isn't a serious problem, it's doubtful that Lynch would miss Sunday's game against the Jets. His status will have to be monitored all week.

Fantasy Take: Lynch is second in the NFL with 881 yards and could become the first Seahawk since Shaun Alexander in 2005 to rush for over 1,000 yards in consecutive seasons. The Jets are 29th in the NFL against the run, providing an excellent chance to Lynch to get the 119 yards he needs to do that, should he not miss the game.
