Marshawn Lynch rushed 26 times for 88 yards with a touchdown and caught three passes for 40 yards with another touchdown in the Seahawks' 26-20 overtime Week 3 win over the Broncos.
It was as memorable of a game as February's Super Bowl was forgettable. Peyton Manning forced overtime with an 80-yard touchdown plus 2-point drive and 59 seconds left in regulation. But he never got the ball in overtime, as Russell Wilson marched the Seahawks down the field and Lynch capped it with a 6-yard run. Lynch's first touchdown was a bit more out of the ordinary, as he lined up split wide and caught a slant from five yards out. Don't expect any more receiving days like this, but Lynch is a touchdown machine (four in three games so far this year, 44 in his last 50 regular season games). He'll face the Redskins following a Week 4 bye. Sep 21 - 8:00 PM

Marshawn Lynch (back) returned to Seahawks practice Thursday, getting in a full session.

Beast Mode is locked and loaded as a top-five RB1 for Week 3.
Sep 18 - 7:18 PM

Marshawn Lynch (back) did not practice Wednesday.

Lynch exited Week 2 due to ongoing back issues. His status shouldn't be in danger for Sunday's matchup with the Broncos. Lynch has 146 yards and three total touchdowns through two games.
Sep 17 - 7:09 PM

Coach Pete Carroll said Marshawn Lynch exited Sunday's Week 2 loss against the Chargers early due to "ongoing" back issues.

Lynch has been battling back problems for awhile, but they're just spasms and have become manageable. Lynch's status for Week 3 isn't likely to be in danger. After seeing just six carries in a game dominated by the Chargers, Carroll said Lynch's light workload is "the last thing we want to have happen." He'll be a top-end RB1 against the Broncos at home next Sunday afternoon.
Sep 15 - 6:27 PM

Marshawn Lynch rushed six times for 36 yards in Seattle's Week 2 loss to the Chargers, adding four catches for 27 yards and a touchdown.

It wasn't a matter of Seattle going away from their bellcow, they simply never had the ball in a game where the Chargers racked up 42:15 time of possession. The Bolts played keep away, and it worked. Thankfully for Beast Mode's fantasy owners, he saved face with his 14-yard touchdown reception in the third quarter. Lynch remains locked in as a high-end RB1 for Week 3 against the Broncos.
Sep 14 - 7:29 PM

Marshawn Lynch rushed 20 times for 110 yards and two touchdowns in the Seahawks' Week 1 thrashing of the Packers.

Beast Mode added one catch for 14 yards. Coming off an offseason filled with contract and workload drama, Lynch looked every bit his vintage self, running over defenders while hitting the hole with ferocity. Exactly half of his 20 totes went for five yards or longer, including his first touchdown. He's locked in as a high-end RB1 for his Week 2 matchup with Manti Te'o and the Chargers.
Sep 4 - 11:57 PM

Coach Pete Carroll said Marshawn Lynch will "let it rip" in Thursday night's game against the Packers.

Lynch was coddled in the preseason, getting three carries on a total of nine snaps. "He's ready to go," Carroll said Wednesday. "We're really excited about cutting him loose. ... He hasn't missed a snap or practice, hasn't missed anything." Carroll has apparently already forgotten about the one-week holdout Lynch staged at the beginning of camp. Regardless, Beast Mode is a no-doubt RB1 and a great bet to score against the Packers' soft interior tonight.

Marshawn Lynch ran three times for 16 yards and a touchdown in Seattle's third preseason game Friday night.

This was Lynch's 2014 preseason debut. He looked as sharp as ever, scoring a seven-yard TD on a shotgun draw to cap Seattle's opening drive. That was the only action of the night for Lynch, who was replaced by Robert Turbin on the team's second possession. Lynch's workload should remain intact to open the season, particularly after Seattle gave him a pay raise. He's a fantasy RB1.

Bellevue (WA) police released a statement clearing Marshawn Lynch of any wrongdoing stemming from a recent investigation into assault and personal property damage accusations.

The allegations seemed specious at best from the start. An unidentified female accused Lynch of the alleged crimes late last weekend. The Seahawks released a statement on Tuesday saying they believed the allegations to be "bogus," and the Bellevue Police Department agrees. Lynch's current Average Draft Position in fantasy leagues is 1.09, behind the "Big Five" running backs -- LeSean McCoy, Jamaal Charles, Adrian Peterson, Matt Forte, and Eddie Lacy.

The Seahawks released a statement on Tuesday, saying they firmly believe the assault and property damage accusations against Marshawn Lynch are "bogus."

"While we maintain the utmost respect for the investigative process, after speaking with Marshawn, we are comfortable these accusations are bogus," read the full statement from the team. Lynch is reportedly being investigated for assault and property damage in Bellevue, Washington after a woman alleged Lynch was involved at an incident at her apartment Sunday morning. There appears to be nothing to this. It should blow over fairly quickly.

Marshawn Lynch is being investigated for assault and property damage in Bellevue, Washington.

Police received an "allegation of an assault and personal property damage" from a woman at an apartment in Bellevue, where the incident is said to have occurred Sunday morning. "The Bellevue Police Department is in the process of gathering the facts of this alleged incident, including verifying whether or not Mr. Lynch was in fact involved," police said in a statement. "No arrests have been made. There is no further information available at this time."

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll says Marshawn Lynch's weight is "way down" and "he's in great shape."

"He looks just as fit as he ever has," Carroll added. "He’s in good shape. He’s in really good shape." It's good news after Lynch spent the spring away from the team and held out for the early portion of training camp. Carroll says Lynch doesn't need many preseason carries, but they'll probably get him a few.
Aug 10 - 8:08 PM

ESPN Seahawks reporter Terry Blount reports Marshawn Lynch was seeking $5 million more than the "concessions" Seattle gave him, bumping his 2014 pay by $1.5 million.

The $1.5 million offer was reportedly on the table from Seattle since way back at minicamp, and moved Lynch's 2014 guaranteed take from $5 million to $6.5 million. "The offer never changed" from the team, per Blount. The Seahawks have still not formally waived the $30,000 per-day fines Lynch incurred during his week-long holdout. Ultimately, zero money was actually added to Lynch's contract. His base pay increased by $1 million by turning would-be incentives into salary, and $500,000 was moved from Lynch's 2015 pay into 2014. Per Blount, Lynch "realizes there's a good possibility" he is cut next offseason.

Profootballtalk reports Marshawn Lynch has agreed to a $1.5 million raise for 2014.

Lynch won his holdout, after all. His salary will increase from $5 million to $6 million, while he's getting a $500,000 "signing bonus." He's now up to $6.5 million guaranteed for 2014. In addition, the Seahawks will not collect Lynch's $495,000 in fines. The Seahawks freed up $1 million by guaranteeing Lynch's per-game roster bonuses. The signing bonus money is coming out of his 2015 salary. It's a nice increase, but also perhaps a nod to the fact that Lynch won't be back at his scheduled $5.5 million salary next year. The fact that Seattle was willing to give Beast Mode a $1.5 million raise to end a seven-day holdout is a fairly strong indication that his workload won't be scaled back much this season.
