Though he was banged up all week, Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch showed no ill effects Thursday, rushing for 91 yards. Lynch also scored a rushing touchdown as the Seahawks beat the Arizona Cardinals, 34-22.
Lynch scored his touchdown with four minutes left in the third quarter, just after an interception return inside the five-yard line. His touchdown brought the score to 31-13. Lynch added a single reception for three yards.
Fantasy impact: Lynch has only topped 100 rushing yards once this season but this was his fourth game above 90, and his score brings him to seven touchdowns on the season.
With 578 rushing and 177 receiving yards through seven games, Lynch has been everything fantasy owners hoped for on draft day. Moving forward, there's little reason to think he won't continue that trend. The Seahawks' next game is against a porous St. Louis Rams defense, so Lynch could well be the No. 1 running back in the entire league for Week 8.
