General News (Fri Oct 12): Martin's carries "will come in time," according to offensive coordinator Greg Olson.

Week 6: vs Seattle Seahawks

All RB vs SEA

FBG says: Neutral matchup. Marshawn Lynch started off strong last week, but he lost playing time as Jalen Richard snuck in to lead the backfield in snaps due to being in catch-up mode throughout the second half. Lynch had at least seen a consistent volume of between 18-20 carries in the three prior weeks, and with this week's game shaping up to be a much closer affair, he has a good chance at seeing his workload normalize back to the 12-18 carry range. From a playcalling perspective though, it is discouraging to see the Raiders fail to feed Lynch at the goal line--especially after Derek Carr threw an interception from the one-yard line last week. On the offensive line, the Raiders have had a tough time in the past two weeks after losing left tackle Donald Penn along with guard Kelechi Osemele sidelined with a knee injury. Lynch has the power to break through some small gaps, but he will still need help to be an efficient runner--and that help does not appear to be coming easily from this banged-up and young offensive line. The Seahawks managed to hold Todd Gurley to just 3.5 yards per rushing attempt last week, but they let him find the end zone three times on three short runs from within the five-yard line. The Seahawks have been through the ringer on the ground now as they have had to face three of the top running backs in the league in three consecutive weeks, allowing an average of 92 rushing yards per game over that span. Five running backs have now rushed for 71 or more yards against this defense, but outside of the three-touchdown outing allowed to Gurley, they have done a decent job at preventing big plays and touchdowns as the rushing totals could have been much higher considering the talent they have faced this season. Bobby Wagner is one of the best linebackers in the league against the run while their safeties are not shy to jump in and help. The defensive line needs work, but they still should have a slight advantage over the Raiders average offensive line with youth on the edges. Marshawn Lynch will need to grind out tough yards and hope for short touchdown opportunities against his former team this week.

Recent Game Summaries

2018 Week 5 vs LAC (2 / 1 / 0 rush, 1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

Martin managed just a single yard on two carries and a target. His biggest contribution in recent weeks has been taking snaps away from the more dynamic backup running back, Jalen Richard.

2018 Week 4 vs CLE (5 / 11 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

It was an extremely quiet day for Martin. He is being outplayed by both Lynch as an early-down runner and by Richard as a pass-catcher. His role should remain small going forward.

2018 Week 3 vs MIA (9 / 43 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

Martin was again the clear #2 back and rotated into the game early in the second series. He was a slightly more effective runner than Lynch against the Dolphins, getting through the hole quicker. Martin picked his way for a 15-yard gain on a nifty run off of left tackle, making a man miss early and weaving his way for a solid gain. He again made a man miss in the backfield on the next play, turning what should have been a short loss into a 5-yard gain. However, he was not targeted at all in the passing game and didn't get any goal line chances. Martin has a solid weekly role, but it isn't one that is likely to allow for much of a fantasy impact.

2018 Week 2 vs DEN (7 / 24 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 0 / 0 rec)

Martin was the clear #2 back but he didn't do much with his opportunities. His longest gain, a 6-yard run, came on a 3rd-and-9 draw. He had another 6-yard gain called back due to a penalty. So far this season, Martin has been getting what is there but nothing more.

2018 Week 1 vs LAR (4 / 20 / 0 rush, 2 / 2 / -3 / 0 rec)

Martin had the entire second and fourth offensive series of the game to himself in the backfield. If the game script would have been more favorable in the second half, Martin likely would have seen double-digit touches. However, with the Rams pulling away, Oakland went almost exclusively with Jalen Richard late. Martin showed pretty good burst on a run off of right tackle that went for 13 yards but that was his only highlight. He was stacked up in the backfield on multiple occasions, including both of his receptions. Martin didn't see the field after the two early drives and played just 14% of the snaps
