John Clayton, ESPN - [Full Article]

Marshawn Lynch will make $7 million a year for the Seattle Seahawks, but he could be cut in 2015 if he experiences a decline.

Fantasy Impact:

Lynch has two more years on his contract, and Christine Michael (and Robert Turbin) are waiting in the wings. Michael is considered to be the RB of the future, but the Seahawks are likely to continue to give Lynch a big workload in 2014 and see how he holds up.

Fisher: Zac Stacy 'probably that 70-percent guy'
Wednesday, March 26, 2014, 1:59pm

Jim Thomas on Twitter - [Full Article]

Rams coach Jeff Fisher, on RB Zac Stacy's evolving role with Rams: "I think over time, he'll probably be that 70-percent of the carries guy."

Fantasy Impact:

The Rams rushed 426 times last year, which means Stacy would get 298 of those carries if the numbers are similar next season. That would have put him third in the league in 2013 behind just LeSean McCoy and Marshawn Lynch, and just ahead of Matt Forte, Ryan Mathews and Eddie Lacy ... so the company is pretty good.

Pete Carroll really hyped up RB Christine Michael. Called him the Seahawks biggest breakout candidate.

Fantasy Impact:

Michael is the heir apparent to Marshawn Lynch, but Lynch's contract runs through 2015.

Marshawn Lynch to plead out in DUI case
Friday, February 21, 2014, 12:23pm

ESPN - [Full Article]

Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch has agreed to plead guilty Friday in an Oakland, Calif., courtroom to the lesser charge of reckless driving, which will end his pending DUI case.

"We are resolving the case Friday by pleading to a wet reckless," said Ivan Golde, Lynch's attorney. "We have a strong case for trial and could win the case, but the last thing he needs is to go through a public trial.

"He's a Super Bowl champion, and he has endorsements pending. For a guy in his position, it just doesn't make any sense to go through a public trial. He has a lot at stake here. You know Marshawn. He's not a media guy. It wouldn't have been good for him to go through all that."

Lynch also will receive two years of probation as part of the plea bargain, along with a monetary fine that will be determined by the judge.

Lynch, 27, was arrested in the early morning on July 14, 2012, by the California Highway Patrol after an officer allegedly observed him driving north on Interstate 880 in Oakland weaving in and out of lanes in a Ford van and nearly colliding with two cars.

Golde said Lynch recorded a .08 blood-alcohol level on the field sobriety test, the lowest level that is above the legal limit.

Fantasy Impact:

Reckless driving shouldn't garner any sort of suspension from the league. Lynch's 2014 status appears to be safe.

Bucs plan to use a 'one-two punch' in backfield
Friday, January 17, 2014, 12:00pm

The Tampa Tribune - [Full Article]

Unlike former head coach Greg Schiano, who preferred to give the bulk of the carries to a single back such as Doug Martin, new OC Jeff Tedford plans to use a two- and maybe even three-back scheme that constantly forces defenses to adjust to his personnel.

“When I was at (the University of California) we were always very fortunate to have two very good backs, whether it was J.J. Arrington and Marshawn Lynch or Lynch and Justin Forsett, or Lynch and Jahvid Best or Jahvid Best and Shane Vereen,’’ Tedford said Wednesday.

“We really had a good one-two punch in the backfield there and I think that’s what you need. For one guy to carry the load the whole time, especially as physical as this level is, is a lot. So (we’re looking) to have two and probably three backs that can provide different things for you.’’

Fantasy Impact:

We don't have to read between the lines to see that Martin may not get the workhorse-type touches that he received in his first season. Still, he'll very likely be the lead back and hold 2nd/3rd round value heading into 2014 fantasy drafts.

For the Seattle Seahawks fans waiting to see more of rookie running back Christine Michael, you may have to keep waiting.

“He’s working his way in and we think he has great promise for the future,” coach Pete Carroll said of Michael Monday on 710 ESPN Seattle radio. “But he’s still a young guy trying to break in.”

Fantasy Impact:

In other words, Carroll is going to stick with veteran Marshawn Lynch, even though some fans are itching to see more of Michael. Lynch has not rushed for more than 100 yards in a game since Nov. 10 at Atlanta.
