Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch is listed as probable to face the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday. Lynch was a full participant in practice Thursday and Friday. His knee injury is should be considered a non-issue.
Lynch is entering the weekend hot. In his last two games, he averaged 6.0 yards per carry, picking up 125 and 145 yards against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Atlanta Falcons, respectively. Lynch ranks second in the NFL in rushing yards, and is one of the hottest backs in the NFL with yardage leader LeSean McCoy cooling off the last few weeks.
The Seahawks receive a new weapon with Percy Harvin making his debut with the team this weekend. Still, Harvin will be on a snap count and the running game is Seattle's bread and butter.
Fantasy impact: There aren't many better options than Lynch in standard leagues. He's at home, he has a good matchup and he's healthy. Owners in PPR formats should also be happy to see he's been involved in the passing game lately.
