Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch was a full participant in Thursday practice, after a recurring back injury gave fans some pause as to whether or not he'd be ready to go on Sunday against the Patriots. Lynch missed a game last season with back spasms but hasn't been slowed down in 2012, carrying the ball 113 times for 508 yards.
Fantasy Take: Lynch takes his lumps but keeps on ticking, so there should be no concern as to whether or not he should be a RB1 on Sunday. The offense starts with Lynch and ends with him and he's averaging a healthy 4.5 yards per carry this season, though Seattle has only rushed for two touchdowns. New England is eighth in the NFL against the run, but you should still expect to see 15-20 carries from Beast Mode.
