Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch did not participate in practice today (Wednesday). Listed on the report with a knee injury.

Fantasy Impact:

Robert Turbin and Christine Michael would get most of the work if Lynch can't play. More likely, he's just getting a day of rest.

710 Seattle - [Full Article]

Rookie Christine Michael showed some giddy-up on that 43-yard touchdown run in the third quarter, but that was only his second-most impressive play in Green Bay. He single-handedly caught a pass out of the backfield and turned it into a 25-yard gain.

Not only did Robert Turbin look a little less explosive when he got the ball, but he failed on a blitz pickup of Clay Matthews, resulting in one of the Packers' three sacks of Wilson. The fact that a running back – alone – was assigned to block one of the league's top pass rushers is evidence that the scheme was as much to blame as execution on that sack, but there's going to be a pretty fierce competition to see who gets more carries this season: Turbin or Michael.

Fantasy Impact:

Michael has the momentum and has big-play ability, so if Marshawn Lynch were to go down, we'd probably see both Michael and Turbin involved in the running game.

Seattle Seahawks coach Pete Carroll wasn’t kidding this week when he said rookie running back Christine Michael would get the ball early and often Thursday.

Starting running back Marshawn Lynch played just two plays in Seattle’s exhibition opener before giving way to Michael, the team’s second-round selection out of Texas A&M.

Michael got his share of opportunities in Seattle’s 31-10 win over the San Diego Chargers. He ran six times for 21 yards in the first half. In the second half, he turned it up a notch, carrying 10 times for 66 yards — including a 24-yard run — for a total of 89 yards on 16 carries.

“We weren’t going to get frustrated with what happened early, and just (kept) sticking to it,” Carroll said. “He bounced the ball well outside on his long run – had a couple of nice runs. He’s got a long way to go, but he ran hard, looked quick and made some guys miss. So I think it’s a very good first game for him.”

Fantasy Impact:

Michael may have moved ahead of Robert Turbin in the battle to be the primary backup to Lynch.

Seahawks HC Pete Carroll on RB Christine Michael:

“He’s done nothing but good stuff. He’s very quick, lightning quick, a really good worker, he finishes, he makes an impression to you all the time about how he’s willing to bust his tail to get down the field and finish runs, finish blocks and all that stuff. He’s fast, and he’s picking things up so he’s doing good.”

Fantasy Impact:

Robert Turbin has been sidelined with an injury, so Michael may be closing the gap in the battle to become the primary backup to Marshawn Lynch.

Seahawks HC Pete Carroll said Robert Turbin’s sore foot is something the team has been monitoring since the offseason program, and that the Seahawks want to make sure he’s 100 percent healthy.

“He feels fine, doesn’t feel it at all,” Carroll said about Turbin. “But again we’re just taking every precaution at this early time.”

Fantasy Impact:

Turbin figures to serve as the primary backup to Marshawn Lynch, but Christine Michael will also be in the mix.

Marshawn Lynch expected to play
Sunday, September 9, 2012, 10:04am - [Full Article]

The Seahawks expect running back Marshawn Lynch to play against the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday, sources told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter, though Seattle will be mindful of the workload it gives him due to the back spasms that limited him in practice this week.

Fantasy Impact:

Rookie RB Robert Turbin would get the start at running back if Lynch can't play and will likely receive some extra work regardless. Lynch is a risky start with the back issue, but the matchup is good.

Pro Football Talk - [Full Article]

Like the other big-name tailbacks who are officially questionable but who are expected to play on Sunday, Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch is questionable — and he’s expected to play.

Per a league source with knowledge of the situation, Lynch will play despite back spams “unless something crazy happens.”

Fantasy Impact:

We still recommend that Lynch owners watch the afternoon inactives and have Robert Turbin at the ready, if possible. Reports like this are encouraging, but hardly infallible.

Marshawn Lynch returns to limited practice
Friday, September 7, 2012, 11:50am

The Tacoma News Tribune - [Full Article]

Coach Pete Carroll warned that people shouldn’t be hasty to dismiss a return of RB Marshawn Lynch this week, as his balky back would be evaluated on a daily basis. Thursday, Lynch was eased back into practice in preparation for the season opener Sunday at Arizona.

On Wednesday, Lynch said he was confident he could play at Arizona, although he questioned how much he’d be needed. As well as the Seahawks defense had been playing, he joked, the offense might not have to produce very much.

Fantasy Impact:

Assuming his back responds well to practice, it appears Lynch is on track to play Sunday against the Cardinals. Since he plays in the afternoon, his owners should have Robert Turbin ready just in case.

Marshawn Lynch (back) iffy for Week 1
Tuesday, September 4, 2012, 4:58pm

Adam Schefter, Twitter - [Full Article]

Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch has experienced back spasms and team is uncertain whether he'll be able to play Sunday vs. Arizona.

Fantasy Impact:

Robert Turbin would likely get the most touches with Lynch sidelined. He will be drafted in most leagues, but if he's available on the waiver wire is worth a pickup in most cases.

Monday, August 13, 2012, 12:53pm

ESPN - [Full Article]

Seattle rookie RB Robert Turbin has gotten more attention as the projected backup.

The Seahawks haven't heard whether RB Marshawn Lynch will face a suspension in relation to his pending DUI case. Teams wouldn't have to fear the ground game nearly as much if Lynch missed time.
