Marshawn Lynch rushed seven times for 61 yards and a touchdown and caught 1-of-2 targets for three yards in the Raiders' Week 14 loss to the Chiefs.
Lynch was highly effective but criminally underutilized in a game where the Raiders simply got dominated by the Chiefs, therefore causing negative game flow and Lynch's usage to dip. Lynch will have a better chance at positive script when Oakland hosts Dallas in Week 15, although WLB Sean Lee's healthy return has rendered the Cowboys a less-than-ideal run-defense matchup.

Marshawn Lynch rushed 17 times for 101 yards and a touchdown while catching 2-of-3 targets for 20 yards in the Raiders' Week 13 win over the Giants.

With Amari Cooper and Michael Crabtree sidelined, it made sense for the Raiders to hand the ball to Lynch early and often, and that is exactly what they did. After gaining nine yards on the first two plays of the game, Lynch sprinted through a big hole and outraced the defense to the house for a 51-yard touchdown. He appeared to suffer an injury on the run, but he reentered the game in the second quarter and dominated the carries the rest of the way. He also converted a third down in the fourth with a vintage beast-mode run after the catch. Lynch has seen at least 19 touches each of the last two games after managing that feat once in the first 11 weeks. He will be a solid RB2 against the Chiefs next week.
Dec 3 - 7:29 PM

Marshawn Lynch rushed 26 times for 67 yards and a touchdown and caught three passes for 44 yards in Week 12 against the Broncos.

It’s a solid game against one of the top defenses in the league. Lynch didn't have much running room, but was a workhorse with Oakland killing clock in the second half. He converted a third-and-goal from the one-yard line for his touchdown. Lynch has turned his season around with at least 70 total yards or a touchdown in three straight weeks. He's an RB2 for Week 13 against the Giants.
Nov 26 - 7:44 PM

Marshawn Lynch rushed 11 times for 67 yards and caught his only target for 10 yards in the Raiders' Week 11 loss to the Patriots.

Lynch was the most effective weapon for Oakland's offense early, sparking what could have been a game-changing drive with a 25-yard carry midway through the second quarter. A Seth Roberts fumble ended that march inside the 10, however, and a lopsided scoreline limited Lynch to just two carries in the second half. With a tough matchup against the Broncos up next, Lynch will remain no better than a touchdown-hope RB2.
Nov 19 - 8:08 PM

Marshawn Lynch rushed 14 times for 57 yards and two touchdowns in Oakland's Week 9 win over Miami.

Lynch played 38 snaps in his return from suspension. He had just eight yards in the first half before a 39-yard touchdown drive on the Raiders first drive of the third quarter. Lynch's second TD was the game winner from three yards out. It's a needed rebound with Lynch averaging just 3.7 YPC going into Sunday night. Lynch will be an RB2 for a matchup with New England when the Raiders come out of their bye in Week 11.
Nov 5 - 11:50 PM

Marshawn Lynch was absent from Raiders' practice on Tuesday.

It was just a light workout, but coach Jack Del Rio had expected Lynch to be present. It's always something with Beast Mode. He should be there on Wednesday, and reassume starting status for Week 9 against the Dolphins. Even with six teams on bye, Lynch won't be higher than the RB2/3 borderline in fantasy. He hasn't been good enough this season.
Oct 31 - 2:38 PM

Marshawn Lynch has been reinsated after his one-week suspension for shoving an official.

He should retake lead back duties against the Dolphins, with Jalen Richard and DeAndre Washington resuming their change-up roles. Lynch has not gone over 13 carries in a game since Week 1 and has had minimal passing-game usage. He'll be a mere RB2/flex option this week, even against a struggling Miami defense.
Oct 30 - 5:51 PM

Marshawn Lynch's one-game suspension has been upheld on appeal.

It means he will miss the Raiders' matchup with the Bills this week. Jalen Richard and DeAndre Washington should form an almost even committee with Lynch out, limiting the fantasy appeal of both. Lynch will return against the Dolphins in Week 9.
Oct 24 - 12:01 PM

NFL suspended RB Marshawn Lynch one game for unsportsmanlike conduct.

The suspension comes after Lynch was ejected for shoving a referee in Thursday's game. Lynch will miss Week 8 if he doesn't win his appeal. It's the latest in what's been a rough month for Lynch. The Raiders should go with a committee of Jalen Richard and DeAndre Washington against Buffalo.
Oct 20 - 7:25 PM

The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports the NFL is "considering all options" for discipline with Marshawn Lynch.

Lynch was ejected for leaving the sidelines and shoving a referee on Thursday night. He's facing fines in excess of $60,000 and could potentially miss Week 8 against Buffalo. There should be a decision on Lynch's status early next week. DeAndre Washington and Jalen Richard would form a committee if Lynch is forced to sit.
Oct 20 - 5:37 PM

Marshawn Lynch was ejected from the Raiders' Week 7 game against the Chiefs after shoving a referee.

For some reason, the Raiders dialed up a draw for Derek Carr on a second quarter 3rd-and-10. It failed spectacularly, with Carr taking numerous hits. The Raiders took exception and Lynch came racing in from the sideline. He then shoved a referee during the ensuing scrum. The crew had no choice but to eject him. Lynch carried the ball just twice for nine yards before being tossed, and was ceding lots of snaps and touches to Jalen Richard. It's possible he earns a suspension for Week 8 against Buffalo.
Oct 19 - 9:35 PM

Marshawn Lynch traveled 63 yards on 13 carries Sunday in the Raiders’ Week 6 loss to the Chargers.

Lynch was unable to haul in either of his two targets, including a pass that went off his hand for an interception early in the third quarter. The 63 rushing yards were Lynch’s most since Week 1 when he went for 76 yards in a win over Tennessee. Lynch has looked sluggish since coming out of retirement but reminded of the old Beast Mode with a few impressive runs, pushing the pile while carrying multiple defenders on his back. He out-touched Jalen Richard by a decisive 13-5 margin while outgaining him by nearly 40 yards. Lynch will be a low-end RB2 against the Chiefs on Thursday Night Football.
Oct 15 - 9:03 PM

Marshawn Lynch chipped in with 43 yards and a touchdown on 12 carries while adding one catch for 10 yards on two targets Sunday in the Raiders’ Week 5 loss to the Ravens.

This wasn’t vintage Marshawn by any means, but it was certainly a step up from what we had seen from him the previous few weeks. Beast Mode even sprinkled in a goal-line touchdown for his second end-zone visit of the season. E.J. Manuel set it up with a 10-yard scramble on the previous play. While Lynch still led the backfield in touches while maintaining his usual goal-line role, he ceded a concerning amount of work to Jalen Richard, who managed 37 yards on nine carries. Lynch will try to create some distance from Richard next week against the Chargers.
Oct 8 - 8:54 PM’s Eddie Paskal expects a "heavy dose" of Marshawn Lynch this week.

Lynch has been gameflowed the last two weeks, rushing just 15 times for 30 yards. With Derek Carr sidelined, the Raiders should lean run heavy as they look to hide E.J. Manuel. Lynch is Rotoworld’s No. 24 running back for Week 5. Daily Slant: The Ravens will be without DT Brandon Williams, who’s a major part of their run defense. Over the past two weeks without him, they’ve allowed 169.5 rushing yards per game and Le’Veon Bell posted 144 yards and two TDs. While that may be out of Lynch’s reach, he’s just $5.1k on DraftKings and we’re projecting 5.0% ownership. Fantasy players will likely shy away due to his current volume – 45.2% of the snaps 53.6% of the carries – and terrible 12-yard outing against the Broncos last week. However, Denver is the top rushing defense while the Baltimore ranks 17th (per FO). If Lynch gets and workload boost and finds his rhythm, he could crush his salary.
Oct 7 - 4:16 PM

Marshawn Lynch rushed nine times for 12 yards Sunday in the Raiders’ Week 4 loss to the Broncos.

He came up empty on his lone target. Coming off a lousy game versus the Redskins on Sunday Night Football, Lynch was somehow even worse against Denver. He spent the afternoon hitting brick walls, managing a long run of just four yards. Never the world’s greatest pass-catcher, Lynch was invisible with Oakland playing from behind in the second half. This was never going to be an easy game for Lynch—the Broncos have been similarly tough on Melvin Gordon, Ezekiel Elliott and LeSean McCoy in recent weeks. But it’s still concerning how little he’s done through his first four games. He’ll try to bounce back against the Ravens in Week 5.
