Raiders have agreed to terms with RB Marshawn Lynch

Mike Silver - [Full Article]

Marshawn Lynch has signed with the Raiders. Terms to come.

Update from @RapSheet: To follow up Mike Silver's reporting: Marshawn Lynch & Raiders haven't agreed to parameters. But optimism is there. Expected to happen.

Fantasy Impact: 

The Raiders still need to agree to trade compensation with the Seahawks, but this looks like it's happening. In his final season with the Seahawks, Lynch gained 497 total yards and scored three touchdowns in seven games (3.76 YPC). That equates to 11.5 PPG (PPR), which are high-end RB3 numbers. The Oakland offensive line is very good, but Seattle’s offensive line seemed to block just fine for Thomas Rawls (5.65 YPC) and Christine Michael (4.92 YPC) while Lynch struggled mightily in 2015. The soon-to-be 31-year-old would be back on the radar as a fantasy RB2 if he is traded to the Raiders, but a return to RB1 production is not a slam dunk.
