Marshawn Lynch injury update: RB listed as probable, will play for fantasy owners

Jonathan Daniel

The Seahawks running back is listed as probable and is ready to go for Week 10. We break down the fantasy implications.

Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch (knee) is listed as probable and will suit up for the team's Week 10 game against the Atlanta Falcons. He was upgraded to full participant in practice on Thursday and was never in any danger of missing the game.

Fantasy Impact: Marshawn Lynch is set to start and fantasy owners have nothing to fear. Although he only has two 100-yard rushing games under his belt this season, Lynch has not disappointed fantasy owners with his mid-to-late first round ADP. He has seven touchdowns on the year and will continue to play the feature back role in Seattle's run-heavy scheme. Averaging 4.3 yards per carry, Lynch has not shown any signs of being limited by his minor knee issue.

With his favorable match up against the Falcons, Lynch is in position to drop a monster fantasy line for fantasy owners. Versatile wide receiver Percy Harvin has not yet been cleared to return to game action, so Seattle figures to continue to lean heavily on their star running back. Lynch is an RB1 play and owners should start him with confidence.
