Statistical analysis shows that running back production historically drops off by 15 percent at age 28, 25 percent at age 29, and nearly 40 percent by the time running backs hit age 30.
The "peak" age for running backs is considered 27. A more extensive article on the topic is accessible at the link below, but it's certainly information for fantasy footballers to file away. Marshawn Lynch in Seattle turns 28 later this month and is coming off his finest two NFL seasons. Including playoffs, Lynch has 1,002 carries over his last three years, an average of 334 per season.

Marshawn Lynch has agreed to plead guilty to reckless driving in connection with his 2012 DUI arrest.

He'll receive two years' probation via the plea deal, along with a to-be-determined monetary fine. Lynch was arrested in July of 2012 by California Highway Patrol after an officer observed him nearly collide with two cars in a Ford van. His blood-alcohol content was 0.08 at the scene, so right at the borderline. Lynch's lawyer is optimistic his client will escape league-imposed discipline. "I can't speak for the commissioner," conceded attorney Ivan Golde, "but my feeling is Marshawn is OK and will avoid a suspension."

Marshawn Lynch managed 39 yards and a touchdown on 15 carries in Seattle's Super Bowl 48 drubbing of Denver.

Denver's depleted defense held Lynch to 11 yards on his first eight carries, but on his ninth he powered in for a goal-line score, giving Seattle a 15-0 edge. Lynch finally broke off a BeastMode run in the third quarter, rumbling for 18 with multiple broken tackles. Lynch was otherwise ineffective due to solid play by Broncos WLB Danny Trevathan and NT Terrance Knighton, but the Seahawks didn't need big offensive output as their defense manhandled Denver's offense from start to finish. Lynch will carry risk into 2014 fantasy drafts with 1,002 carries over his previous three seasons, including playoffs. That's an average of 334 per year. He'll turn 28 in April. Lynch drafters will have to be sure to handcuff him, likely with Christine Michael over third-down back Robert Turbin. Turbin-CMike will certainly be a camp battle to watch.

Marshawn Lynch rushed 22 times for 109 yards and a touchdown in Seattle's NFC Championship Game victory over the 49ers.

He was also part of a botched exchange with Russell Wilson that resulted in a Seattle fumble. Lynch got off to a slow start, but changed the complexion of the game with a 40-yard touchdown run in the third quarter. The score tied the game at 10, and featured two vicious cutbacks on a run that was pure Beast Mode. Lynch bounced off a pile, and managed to outrun the 49ers secondary as he housed the ball. With the Seahawks' passing offense in borderline disarray, Lynch will have to have a huge day in Super Bowl XLVIII for Seattle to generate enough O to beat Peyton Manning's Broncos.
Jan 19 - 10:33 PM

Marshawn Lynch rushed 28 times for 140 yards and two touchdowns in Seattle's Divisional Round win over the Saints.

Lynch had a number of negative runs against a feisty Saints defense, but eventually wore Rob Ryan's unit down, sealing Seattle's ticket to the NFC Championship Game with a 31-yard touchdown run with 2:40 remaining. The 100-yard day was Lynch's first since Week 10. Either San Francisco or Carolina is going to be a tough matchup in next week's title tilt.

Marshawn Lynch rushed 23 times for 97 yards and a touchdown and caught a four-yard pass in Seattle's Week 17 win over St. Louis.

Lynch puts a bow on the regular season after rushing 301 times for 1,257 yards and 12 touchdowns, in addition to setting a setting a career high with 316 receiving yards on 36 catches. He added two TDs in the passing game. The focal point of Seattle's run-oriented offense, Lynch will obviously play a major role as the Seahawks seek a Super Bowl berth.

Marshawn Lynch rushed 18 times for 71 yards in Sunday's Week 16 loss to the Cardinals.

It looked like Lynch was going to have a Beastly day as rumbled for 16 yards on the Seahawks' first play from scrimmage. But the Cardinals impressive and big front seven strapped up from there, holding Lynch to his fifth straight game under 72 yards. It's a reminder that when he's not getting in the end zone, he often leaves a hole in the box score because he doesn't play in the passing game. Lynch will be a good bet to score against the Rams in a Week 17 home game.

Marshawn Lynch rushed 16 times for 47 yards and a touchdown and caught six passes for 73 yards in the Seahawks' Week 15 win over the Giants.

The G-Men held Lynch to 12 yards on his initial five carries. He turned his fantasy day around with a two-yard score late in the first half, pushing through would-be tacklers with authority to put Seattle up 10-0. Also heavily involved as a receiver in this particular game, Lynch turned in a sparkling all-around effort and demonstrated his underrated versatility. Lynch has a tough matchup against Arizona in fantasy title week, but will remain an RB1 based on talent and volume. The Seahawks aren't going to stop feeding him.
