NEWS: Marshawn Lynch rushes for just 59 yards against CAR; Lynch the top-projected back entering Week 20?

SMITTY: After a disappointing Divisional Playoff outing (59 rushing yards and 0TDs), Marshawn Lynch is our highest-projected rusher heading into these Conference Championship Playoff matchups. We have Lynch pegged for 112 rushing yards, 1TD, 1-2 receptions for 16 yards (and 0.29 receiving TDs, so a chance at a receiving score).

ARTICLE: Crazy-Early 2015 Fantasy Football Mock Draft (Dynasty)

Hey Starters Nation:

Looking for an early 2015 Fantasy Football Mock Draft / Rankings heading into 2015? This is a dynasty mock draft, so keep in mind that players like Marshawn Lynch, Peyton Manning, Matt Forte, among others, are going to fall much, much further than they would in a early 2015 fantasy football yearly-league mock draft, but this mock draft should be rather useful to all fantasy leaguers, as for the most part things in redraft and dynasty can often times line-up rather well entering January. On that note, enjoy!

ARTICLE: Who are the top 20 Dynasty Fantasy Football Players for 2015?

Are you a dynasty fantasy football nut in need of some 2015 fantasy football content? Well, here is a writeup on the Top 20 Fantasy Football Dynasty Players heading into 2015 and beyond. Note, this is not a fantasy football mock draft, it is more of a value-based board, meaning you will find Aaron Rodgers and Andrew Luck a lot higher than you’d want to draft them, which ultimately means that I’m suggesting that their values are fantastic when faced off against their early 2015 Average Draft Positions (ADPs). So, again, this is NOT a mock draft, but in many cases will mirror where mocks have some of the players going in early mocks. Enjoy.View Top 20 Dynasty Players

NEWS: Marshawn Lynch ready for Week 15!

SMITTY: He is probable to play and probable to produce top 5-10RB numbers any week he plays. His future in Seattle might be in question, but his value in Weeks 15 and 16 aren’t. Looking for Week 15 Power Rankings?

NEWS: Marshawn Lynch (back) is probable for Week 12.

SMITTY: Despite the tough match-up against the Cardinals, Marshawn Lynch has low-end RB1 upside. He is usually a high-end RB1, but this one will be tough sledding. 70-80 yards and a solid shot at a score is doable for the tough runner. We keep saying it each week, be certain to handcuff Lynch to Christine Michael. Looking for Week 12 Power Rankings?

NEWS: Marshawn Lynch did not practice WED.

SMITTY: This isn’t a big issue, as the calf injury isn’t likely to keep him out of Week 11. Marshawn Lynch is a top 5RB moving forward, but his future in Seattle is very, very questionable. This should have the Seahawks giving Christine Michael more and more run just to test drive him. But, that’s good for both Lynch and Michael owners, as it keeps Lynch fresh, and it gives Seattle a look at their potential 2015 starter. Dynasty owners should be excited about Michael’s future, but a lot of things have to happen for him to start in Seattle in 2015, so just keep that in mind if you are a non-Michael owner and you’re trying to join the party late. It’s never wise to buy-high on such players, as then you’re buying all kinds of risk. These players are only worth buying low. Looking for Week 11 Power Rankings?

NEWS: Marshawn Lynch (calf) banged up but expected to play Week 10.

SMITTY: Update: Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said on Friday that Marshawn Lynch (calf) is ready for Week 10 against the Giants. The below info still applies regarding the handcuffs, and again, he is a top 5-10RB whenever starting for the Seahawks. However, his future in Seattle is questionable at best, so at some point this year, even if it’s in Weeks 16 and 17, you have to think the team will test drive Christine Michael a bit.

Previous Post:: It doesn’t sound like a big issue, but we will certainly keep you posted on this one via both our news wire right here and our Smart Alerts. If ready to rumble, and we fully expect that in Week 10 (at this point), the stud is a top 5-10RB start. He is a top 5-10 start weekly when healthy. If you can manage it roster space-wise, all Lynch owners should own both Robert Turbin and Christine Michael (unless of course you’re in a league with small rosters).
