Marshawn Lynch was limited in practice for the Seahawks on Wednesday with back spasms. We break down the fantasy implications.

Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch will be limited in Wednesday's practice with back spasms according to Pete Carroll and will have to be evaluated day-by-day. Lynch missed most of the preseason and is questionable to start against the Cardinals in week one, with Carroll saying they'll have to see how he progresses this week. Lynch missed a game against the Browns last season with back spasms as well.

Fantasy Implications: If you've been paying attention to Lynch's offseason and preseason, you should have rookie Robert Turbin at the ready. Not only has Lynch been dealing with injuries, but there is still no word on if he'll face suspension from suspicion of DUI that he received in the offseason. He was one of the most consistent running backs of 2011, scoring at least one touchdown in eleven straight games. If he's not ready to go, Turbin will get the majority of carries.
