High-Variance Players: RB Marshawn Lynch - Footballguys

The Footballguys staff discusses the high side and low side of Marshawn Lynch

When August rolls around, the fantasy football community usually reaches a consensus on most players. Marshawn Lynch isn't one of those players. While he's averaging somewhere around RB34, he has been ranked between 18 and 48 at his position. What are your thoughts on him? Is he underrated or overrated? Or neither?

Daniel Simpkins: I’m fine with Lynch being 34th at his position off the board. Personally, I would place him somewhere in the 23rd-25th range. Though I’m not sure that Gruden’s overall experiment in Oakland will be a success, I do see a willingness to give Marshawn Lynch a lot more work than he got last season. I didn’t see anything to suggest Lynch has lost a step. Between the volume he’ll get and the toolbox he has as a veteran runner who understands the nuances of the position, I’m betting we see a nice swan song season from him.
