Marshawn Lynch trade swap of 2018 picks, Seahawks get Oakland's 5th, Oakland gets Seattle's 6th. Part of thinking is while Raiders still in Oakland, bring in a very popular Oakland-area dude.
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.

Week 3 at Washington
The Raiders go cross-country, but it's on Sunday Night Football and the west to east trip issues should not be a factor due to the late kickoff. That's evidenced by Vegas assigning an implied team total second to only the Patriots this week for the silver and black. The Raiders are also a 3-point favorite, which helps Lynch's chances of a positive game script or neutral game script. He should also be fresh this week after an easy win and a light 12-carry workload last week. We like Lynch as a low RB2 in standard leagues and high RB2 in PPR leagues in Week 3.
