Lynch was kept out of practice on Wednesday with an apparent knee injury, and the timing of it was curious after a game where Lynch received only eight carries for 23 yards. However, a source recently told Pro Football Talk that Lynch is in no danger of missing Week 9.
Fantasy Spin: It came to the surprise of many fantasy owners when Lynch did not capitalize on a juicy matchup versus the Rams in Week 8, but it was difficult for most of the Seahawks offense to do so. The team rarely sustained drives, as quarterback Russell Wilson spent most of the game under duress. The Seahawks had no chance to rack-up rushing yardage due to being in hopeless down-and-distance situations, and also due to running just 45 plays on offense.
It would be surprising to see that happen again versus a disintegrating Buccaneers team, and Lynch will be called upon early and often as usual. With a home game next on the schedule, expect a return to the norm for the Seahawks and for Lynch's fantasy owners. Pen him into his usual RB1 slot with confidence.
