Marshawn Lynch (back spasms) is expected to play Sunday against the Cardinals. We break down the fantasy implications.

Marshawn Lynch is expected to play Sunday when the Seattle Seahawks take on the Arizona Cardinals, Mike Florio at Pro Football Talk reports. Lynch was marked as questionable heading into the game due to nagging back spasms in practice. A league source said that the running back would play "unless something crazy happens," though there wasn't an indication whether Lynch would be limited.

Analysis: Robert Turbin impressed coaches throughout preseason, and could be in line for a few extra touches--including goal-line carries--due to Lynch's back troubles. Lynch is still the team's primary back, however, and should be the starter if you're deciding between the two. Consider Lynch a Flex/RB2 option this week in standard leagues.
