Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch is set to have surgery on his sports hernia tomorrow morning, source said. Expected to be out about a month.

Fantasy Impact: 

This effectively knocks Lynch out for the rest of the fantasy season, though we would hold for now until the dust settles. If he misses four weeks, he could be back in Week 16 for a matchup with the Rams, but the Seahawks will likely play it safe if the team is in the playoff hunt so they can have a healthy Lynch for the postseason. Thomas Rawls is a top 10 back for the remainder of the season.
