Marshawn Lynch rushed 21 times for 91 yards and a touchdown in the Seahawks' Week 15 win over the 49ers.

He added a seven-yard reception. It was a by-the-numbers Beast Mode game, as he took on extra tacklers and won. Lynch has now cleared 86 yards rushing in 5-of-6 games, scoring six total touchdowns in the process. Although he's been running well, he'll be a lower-end RB1 in a tough Week 16 road trip to Arizona.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Marshawn Lynch will consider retirement following the season.

Per Rapoport, Beast Mode contemplated walking away after the Super Bowl title last year. RapSheet continues to insist the Seahawks will cut Lynch in the offseason thanks to his inflated salary and "their desire to rework the locker room around Russell Wilson." Lynch may make the decision for them, but one way he may keep playing is if OL coach Tom Cable gets a head-coaching job. The two are extremely close, and Cable loves the power run game. Lynch will turn 29 in April.

Profootballtalk reports Marshawn Lynch (back, illness) will "without question" play against the 49ers on Thanksgiving.

It's not a surprise, as coach Pete Carroll essentially guaranteed on Monday that Beast Mode would suit up for Seattle's grudge match with the 49ers. Lynch has been playing mostly dominant football, but on a short week against a tough run defense, he'll be a lower-end RB1 for Week 13.
Nov 25 - 6:26 PM

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll expressed confidence Monday that Marshawn Lynch (back, illness) will play on Thanksgiving against the 49ers.

"We'll expect he'll be ready to go," said Carroll. "He won't want to miss this." It's obviously a huge division game in primetime. Lynch missed a number of plays in Sunday's win over the Cardinals because he was "sick to his stomach," Carroll said after the game. Carroll also acknowledged Lynch's longstanding back woes haven't gone away. He'll be a low-end RB1 against the 49ers.
