Lynch will miss the Seahawks' preseason finale Thursday after missing practice this week with ongoing back problems. We break down the fantasy implications.

Marshawn Lynch has been ruled out of the Seattle Seahawks' preseason finale after sitting out practice this week with ongoing back problems. Lynch also sat out last week, ceding carries to Robert Turbin in the team's third preseason game Friday.

Analysis: Turbin ran wild with the starting opportunity, gaining 93 yards and a touchdown on 14 carries against the Kansas City Chiefs. At the very least, Turbin should be considered a necessary handcuff to Lynch who is dealing with a potential suspension stemming from a DUI arrest on top of his back problems. Head coach Pete Carroll has said that Turbin will also see a few carries outside of goal-line and short-yardage situations, suggesting he will cut into Lynch's value regardless of whether Lynch is 100 percent.
