Marshawn Lynch injury update: Beast Mode isn't hurt at all, fantasy owners don't need to worry

Matthew Emmons-USA TODAY Sports

Marshawn Lynch is on the injury report for no reason. We break down the fantasy implications.

Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch is listed as probable. He missed Wednesday practice for personal reasons and was a full participant on Thursday and Friday.

He's playing. Lynch has been healthy all year and he's been running hard as one of the toughest backs to tackle in the NFL.  He has four TDs, a 3.9 yards-per-carry average and 399 total yards in four games.

The Seahawks haven't had the easiest schedule so far either. They've gone against the Texans, 49ers, Panthers and Jaguars. Well, three out of four ain't bad.

Fantasy impact: He missed practice, so the team had to throw him on the injury report. There's nothing to worry about as he'll have a chance to get into a shootout with the Colts. Indy ranks 16th in rushing yards per game and 22nd in yards per carry. Plus, they haven't had too many run-happy teams on their schedule. Beast Mode is going to get his against the Colts and should have a chance have double-digit scores and over 100 yards. Russell Wilson should also benefit from the team moving the ball.
