Summary

Lynch returned to the NFL after a one-year hiatus and put together a productive season at age 31. He rushed for 891 yards and 7 touchdowns and caught 20 passes or 151 yards. In the early part of the 2017 season, Lynch played approximately half of the snaps and handled about half of the running back touches. Down the stretch, however, the Raiders upped his workload to that more typical of a lead back and Lynch responded with some of his best games. Over the final eight games of the season, Lynch had 738 total yards and 5 touchdowns. Jon Gruden has said he wants "full-time Lynch," implying he would give the veteran a shot at more of a workhorse role than he had overall last season. Lynch will be 32-years old this season and it is certainly possible that he will need to have his touches managed over the course of the season, which would probably relegate him to a low-end RB2 for fantasy. However, the upside is there for Lynch to vastly outperform his current ADP if he is given and can handle the same workload for 16 games that he succeeded with down the stretch in 2017. (May 28)
