From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Sep 8): The Seahawks offense looks to be the best it has been in Lynch's career and he's not showing a bit of dropoff in his level of play. He's a stud RB1 who will look like a second-round steal soon enough if he doesn't already.

Week 2: at San Diego Chargers

Mark and Joe say: Good matchup. In this game, San Diego comes off a late Monday Night Football game to face Seattle, who got a long weekend to rest after opening the season two Thursdays ago (essentially a mini-bye week). Seattle will have the more-well-rested squad for this contest, friends. Marshawn Lynch chewed up the Packers' D in Week One, with 20/110/2 rushing and 1/14/0 receiving to his credit. All told, the Seahawks posted 37/207/2, helped along by Percy Harvin's 4/41/0 rushing and Russell Wilson's 7/29/0 on the ground. This is a dangerous, powerful squad of runners, friends. The Chargers lost a hard-fought 17-18 decision at Arizona on Monday Night Football, holding Andre Ellington and company to 26/109/0 rushing on the night. Last season, San Diego ranked 12th in the NFL averaging 107.8 yards rushing allowed per game - they gave up 14 TDs on the ground over 16 games played. It looks like they are right on their usual middle-of-the-pack standard again this year. Advantage, Seattle.

Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 1 vs GB (20 / 110 / 2 rush, 1 / 1 / 14 / 0 rec)

Lynch made the Packers look like a second team offense. Or maybe they just played like one - it's difficult to judge in week one. Whichever the case, Lynch had a great day and looked to be in mid-season form. He made steady gains early on, showing great balance and agility on an early scoring drive, as he slipped through holes with ease. He also has surprising speed that got him outside for good gains. In short, there were no flaws in his game. Speed, agility, vision, catching the ball well, all checked off the list. Lynch made several big runs up the middle and broke a couple outside for easy first downs. On his second TD, Lynch made it through a crowd for a three yard score, and though barely touched, he ran with enough power that a defender who had hold of his shirt tore it, but didn't stop the rest of him from crossing the goal line. The only caveat - though this may be a good thing in the long run - is that the Seahawks were not afraid to mix in Robert Turbin with a few carries. So, Lynch will always give up a few, but if this game was any indication, the short rests will only help his game.

Seahawks | Marshawn Lynch looks fit (Thu Sep 4, 10:54 AM) - Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch looks most fit he has since Pete Carroll took over as head coach, according to Carroll.

Our View: Lynch is still considered an RB1, but he hasn't been listed by many as a top-five fantasy back. Many analysts think Christine Michael will get more carries and hurt Lynch's value. That said, with the middle of the Packers defense still weak, expect Lynch to have a solid Thursday night for Seattle and his fantasy owners.
