Marshawn Lynch continues strong season for Seahawks, fantasy owners

The Seahawks running back had 120 total yards and a score Sunday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch continued his strong season Sunday. Though he was outgained by quarterback Russell Wilson in rushing yards, the running back did lead the team in receiving yards in the Seahawks' 23-0 win over the New York Giants.

Lynch had 47 rushing yards and a touchdown on 16 carries, adding 73 receiving yards on six receptions for 120 total yards from scrimmage. His touchdown came on a two-yard run in the middle of the second quarter, before it became clear the game would be a blowout. Late in the game, the team saved Lynch's legs, giving backup running back Robert Turbin nine rushes, on which he gained 34 yards.

Fantasy impact: The 16 carries tied for Lynch's second-fewest of the season, though his six receptions were his most of 2013 by two. All told, Lynch is still a clear-cut RB1, even as his team ends its season against Arizona and St. Louis, both of whom play well on defense.
