Week 3: vs Denver Broncos

Mark and Joe say: Good matchup. Super Bowl Rematch! Marshawn Lynch wore down the Broncos back on February 2, 2014 with 15/39/1 rushing - the Seahawks combined for 29/135/1 rushing on that day (Percy Harvin led the team with 2/45/0 rushing to his credit). This year, Lynch is the third-best fantasy running back through two games, with 26/146/2 rushing and 5/41/1 rushing to his credit. Percy Harvin has 6/86/1 rushing to his credit (22 yards more than his 8/64/0 receiving to date) and has been the best change-of-pace runner for the Seahawks so far this year. Robert Turbin has handled 8/34/0 rushing and 2/35/1 receiving as Lynch's backup to date. The Broncos' rush D is ranked 10th in the NFL averaging 93.5 yards rushing allowed per game, with three rushing scores handed over to date. Last week, Kansas City posted 31/133/2 rushing at Denver - there is room for improvement here entering Week 3, folks. Lynch and Harvin have been hard to stop, while Denver stumbled in this phase of the game last week. Advantage, Seattle.

Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 1 vs GB (6 / 27 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

Turbin clearly has the confidence of the coaching staff, and got a handful of carries when called on to spell Lynch. He especially excelled in the 2 minute drill of the first half, showing some pretty good moves, albeit while running against a nickel defense.

2014 Week 2 vs SD (2 / 7 / 0 rush, 2 / 2 / 35 / 1 rec)

Turbin played his typical change of pace role, and saw action early, which shows how much the team trusts him. As was the case for Lynch, the running game just did not have any opportunity to get going, as the Chargers controlled the clock and held the lead for most of the game. Turbin's big contribution was in the passing game near the end of the first half. He caught one catch in the flat and took it for a 32 yard gain, then sealed the deal a few plays later catching a short swing pass for the score. Worth noting is that this is also typical: Near the end of the half, it is often Turbin who gets the call, not Lynch.
