Summary

Marshawn Lynch has been a top-five fantasy running back in each of the past three seasons. The former Buffalo Bill came into his own after being traded to the Seahawks. He's been the featured runner in a run-heavy offense, and his one-cut style of running is a perfect fit in Seattle. If he maintains the same workload in 2014, there's a good chance he'll maintain his fantasy value as well. The 28-year-old is reaching a stage in his career when many running backs begin to slow down, however, and Lynch has a couple of running backs behind him with strong potential. It's possible that he'll be spelled more often to keep him from wearing down over the course of the season; and if so, his fantasy production will suffer. Lynch will cost $9 million under the salary cap in 2015, so his role with the team beyond this season is uncertain. If the Seahawks are considering moving on from him after 2014, they may get Robert Turbin and Christine Michael significant playing time this year to help with their evaluation and with the possible transition.
