Marshawn Lynch going off for fantasy owners on Sunday night

Otto Greule Jr

Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch had a huge first quarter against the San Francisco 49ers. We break down the fantasy implications.

Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch scored twice in the first quarter as the Seahawks jumped out to a 21-0 lead over the San Francisco 49ers. Lynch has six carries for 41 yards and a touchdown as well as a nine-yard touchdown reception.

Lynch is on pace for his third straight 100-yard rushing game and now has seven touchdown in the last four games. His reception was his first receiving touchdown of the year and only the third of his career.

Fantasy Impact: Lynch has been in beast mode all season with 1,379 yards and 10 touchdowns entering this game. His best performances have been over the past couple weeks during what constitutes the fantasy playoffs for most leagues.

With the Seahawks now leading 21-0, expect them to keep pounding the ball with Lynch and for him to start racking up yards.
