News you need to know
From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Nov 24): Lynch missed a few series and the Cardinals bottled him up, but know that he had 10 total scores in the last eight games against the 49ers and Cardinals, his opponents in Week 13, 15, and 16. He's still all about that action, boss.
General News (Wed Nov 26): practiced fully on Wednesday and is expected to play this week.
Week 13: at San Francisco 49ers
Mark and Joe say: Tough matchup. Seattle and San Francisco are knotted up at 7-4 behind divisional leader Arizona (9-2) - this is the first of two scheduled clashes between these divisional rivals (with profound playoff implications for both), which will go down in Levi's Stadium on Thanksgiving night. Marshawn Lynch had lingering symptoms of illness that sickened him during the game vs Arizona last week (15/39/0 rushing with 3/43/0 receiving), and may have suffered from a tight back as well. Though he gutted out the contest, it wasn't his finest moment of the 2014 season, as you can see. To date, he is the fourth-ranked fantasy back in the land (PPR scoring), with 192/852/9 rushing and 27/290/3 receiving to his credit - start him if you've got him. Russell Wilson ran for 10/73/0 rushing last week, making it three games in a row he's had more than 70 yards rushing to his credit. The 49ers rush D gave up 27/136/1 to Washington's Alfred Morris and company last week, after holding the Giants to 21/65/0 on the ground two weeks ago. This season they are usually in between those totals, with an average of 92.9 rushing yards allowed per game (seventh in the NFL) and only six rushing scores given out over 11 contests In the 49ers house, we give the home team a slight edge in this matchup - advantage, Santa Clara.
Recent Stats and Projections
Recent Game Summaries
2014 Week 10 vs NYG (21 / 140 / 4 rush, 1 / 1 / 23 / 0 rec)
Lynch had a monster game from start to finish. His Three of his four TDs were in short yardage situations, but all were hard-earned. The offensive line consistently gave him big holes to run through, and from there he broke tackles used his stellar vision to add a few more yards on most carries. If there was a downside to his game, it was that he got stopped a few times at the goal line as well. On one TD, he was actually stuffed on 1st and 2nd down, before finding daylight on the third try. His final score was a 16 yarder up the middle. The four TD's were a treat, but he dominated all over the field.
2014 Week 11 vs KC (24 / 124 / 0 rush, 3 / 1 / 1 / 0 rec)
On the first real drive of the game (after a three-and-out to start), Lynch had four consecutive carries for 35 yards before taking a quick breather. He looked great up the middle, powering through, and also managed to get outside for a big run. Lynch ran wild in general, but when it counted, at the goal line and on a 4th & 1 late in the match, was stopped twice by a very tough defense. He left the game briefly in the first half with an apparent injury, but returned and showed no signs of being slowed down by it.
2014 Week 12 vs ARI (15 / 39 / 0 rush, 4 / 3 / 43 / 0 rec)
Lynch was the focal point of the offense early on and he ran hard against one of the best rushing defenses in the league. On the opening drive, Lynch had five rushes and a reception (on two targets). Robert Turbin came in for the second and third drives, however, as Lynch was nursing a back injury. When Lynch did return, he did not appear to miss a beat, but also wasn't able to break any long runs. His greatest contribution was in the passing game, with a couple of sizable gains due to finally having a little room to run. He looked stronger in the late stages of the game, but in most cases the defense was on him quickly.
