Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch continued to show why he was a high-first-round fantasy pick this season Sunday. Lynch had a huge day for the Seahawks as they beat the Atlanta Falcons 33-10.
Lynch rushed the ball 24 times for 145 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's game, adding 16 receiving yards on three catches. His touchdown came in the fourth quarter, on a one-yard run, to cap off the game's scoring. The yardage brings Lynch to almost 900 rushing yards on the year, with eight total touchdowns and more than 200 receiving yards.
Fantasy impact: While guys like Ray Rice, Trent Richardson, and Doug Martin have failed to return on their high-dollar draft picks, Lynch has made his fantasy owners very happy. Sunday was his third game above 20 fantasy points this season, putting him in fourth place among running backs in total fantasy points this season.
Simply put, Lynch is a No. 1 fantasy stud.
