According to Michael Gehlken of the Las Vegas Review-Journal, Marshawn Lynch has met with coach Jon Gruden at Raiders headquarters on "multiple occasions."
There were rumblings that Lynch had blown off Gruden, but apparently those rumors were unfounded. Lynch still has one year remaining on his contract but turns 32 in April. Beast Mode fared reasonably well in his return from a one-year hiatus, averaging 4.3 yards per carry with seven touchdowns in 15 games this past season. He'll be on the RB2/3 radar if he sticks with Oakland in 2018. Feb 9 - 4:25 PM

Marshawn Lynch rushed 19 times for 101 yards and caught 2-of-3 targets for 18 yards in the Raiders' Week 17 loss to the Chargers.

Lynch rumbled through the Chargers but was arguably underused, basically the story of his season. This was just the second time he topped 100 yards on the ground, and he finished with just 891 rushing yards on the year. That was enough to get him over 10,000 for his career, however, and he will be in striking distance of the top-20 all time if he decides to return. If he does, the Raiders will likely want him back at his $4 million base salary.

Marshawn Lynch rushed 25 times for 95 yards in the Raiders' Week 16 loss to the Eagles on Christmas night.

His two catches in the pass game combined to lose three yards. The 27 touches were the second-most in a single game for Lynch this season, and he's one of just three running backs to run for more than 40 yards against the Eagles. As the season has gone on, the Raiders have seemed to realize Lynch is their best means of moving the ball with Derek Carr cratering into rookie mode in 2017. Lynch will again be on the RB2 map in the season finale against the Chargers.

Marshawn Lynch rushed 16 times for 76 yards and caught 3-of-4 passes for 16 yards in Week 15 against Dallas.

Lynch was shut down early, rushing for just 26 yards at the half. He came on late, but was held without a touchdown despite multiple red-zone trips. Lynch has put together a strong second half, rushing for 60-plus yards or a TD in seven straight games. He'll remain an RB2 for Week 16 against the Eagles.

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.

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.
Sun, Nov 26, 2017 07:44:00 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.
Sun, Nov 19, 2017 08:08:00 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.

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.
Tue, Oct 31, 2017 02:38:00 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.
Mon, Oct 30, 2017 05:51:00 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.

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.

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.

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.
