The health of Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch is part of the reason rookie Robert Turbin didn't get more chances in Week 1. We break down the fantasy implications.

Seattle Seahawks running back Robert Turbin didn't get more carries Sunday because Marshawn Lynch was feeling well against the Arizona Cardinals, coach Pete Carroll said this week. Lynch (back) was listed as questionable going into Sunday's game but started and carried 21 times. Carroll also said the flow of the game kept him from using Turbin more frequently.

Fantasy Impact: Lynch's back has been a day-to-day issue in the past but fantasy owners should be encouraged that things were fine against the Cardinals. Owners should monitor injury reports this week in practice but, for now, Lynch is a low-end No. 1/solid No. 2 back for this week's game with the Dallas Cowboys.
