Marshawn Lynch shook off back spasms, and rushed for 85 yards during Sunday's game between the Seahawks and Cardinals. We break down the fantasy implications.

Marshawn Lynch rushed 21 times for 85 yards, and caught two passes for 12 yards during Sunday's game between the Seattle Seahawks and the Arizona Cardinals. The veteran back was marked as questionable heading into the game after dealing with back spasms in practice last week, but was able to take on a full workload in the loss.

Analysis: Robert Turbin had just two carries for five yards despite a preseason of hype and Lynch's injury concerns. Lynch looked very strong Sunday, falling a touchdown short of a great night for fantasy owners. As long as he is carrying the load in Seattle, Lynch should be considered among the top RB2 options in standard leagues.
