Marshawn Lynch active for fantasy owners on Thursday night

Steve Dykes

Marshawn Lynch's hip issue proved to be minor. He's active and ready to go on Thursday Night Football. We break down the fantasy implications.

Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch is officially active for Thursday night's Week 7 game against the Arizona Cardinals, the team announced.

Lynch was held out of practice on Tuesday with a hip issue, but it was never considered a serious threat. He was listed as probable on the injury report and there was no danger of him missing the game. Lynch continues to produce at a high level this season, rushing for 487 yards and five touchdowns in six games. He's added 13 catches for 174 yards and an additional touchdown through the air.

Fantasy impact: Lynch has only reached 100 rushing yards once this season, but he's as reliable and consistent as they come in fantasy. He's an easy RB1 this week even against Arizona's strong run defense. The Cardinals are banged up after Calais Campbell suffered a neck injury in last week's loss to the San Francisco 49ers. Campbell is playing but will be less than 100 percent. Start Lynch in all fantasy formats.
