Marshawn Lynch Injury Update: Back injury has nothing to do with fantasy value

Marc Serota

Marshawn Lynch is probable again with a back issue. Should you care?

Marshawn Lynch (back) practiced all week and is listed as probable to face the Bears on Sunday. He is expected to start.

Marshawn Lynch has 1,051 yards and five scores on the ground this season and ranks third in the league in rushing behind Adrian Peterson and Arian Foster.

Fantasy Impact: Welcome to the weekly update of Marshawn Lynch's back. He had no problems on Sunday with taking on the Dolphins and toting the rock 19 times for 46 yards. The Dolphins have a solid rushing defense this year and they were on pace to be one of the best rushing defense ever based on yards per carry.

Points might be tough to come by against the Bears, but there's no way anyone can bench one of the true workhorses in the NFL. Start him as a strong RB2.
