Marshawn Lynch injury update: Questionable status should't scare fantasy owners

Michael Hickey

Marshawn Lynch is questionable for Sunday's game. We break down the fantasy implications.

Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch (hip) is questionable to face the Titans on Sunday. He sat out of practice on Friday, but is expected to play.

Seattle gets a late game at home, but Lynch should be fine to carry the load against the Titans. He's coming off a 102-yard game last week against the Colts and has averaged 5.8 yards per carry or more in each of the last two games.

If Lynch isn't able to sustain his workload, Robert Turbin could be called upon to get a handful of carries. The Titans have been much better on defense, but the Seahawks still figure to have success in moving the ball on the ground even with their injuries to the offensive line.

Fantasy impact: Lynch is going to be a top-five play for standard leagues and is still a must-play in PPR leagues. He hasn't really dealt with hip injuries, so this isn't a chronic ailment. If you're feeling uneasy, Turbin serves as a decent handcuff. Although, the team would likely give Christine Michael some carries should Lynch ever have to miss time.
