Raiders RB Marshawn Lynch (not injury related) was removed from the injury report Friday. Lynch is good to go in a decent matchup against the Cowboys.

Scouting Report

Fantasy Upside

Marshawn Lynch finished as the RB23 in PPR last season, averaging about 15 touches per game. He has a plus-offensive line in Oakland and is reunited with the OL coach he thrived under in Seattle, Tom Cable. From Week 9 on, Lynch was the RB13 in PPR and averaged 18.9 touches per game. If he continues to get that type of volume, he should be an RB2 again.

Fantasy Downside

Which Lynch will we see? The one from Week 9 on, or the one who averaged six fantasy points per game from Week 1-8? Plus, the Raiders coaching staff continues to praise Doug Martin this offseason. Lynch's touch share in this backfield puts him at risk of being a weekly headache in redraft leagues.

2018 Bottom Line

Doug Martin garnered preseason praise last season also, but that doesn't change the fact he's been terrible in games for two straight seasons. Lynch's ADP is fairly priced for his age and uncertain situation under a new coaching staff. He's often being selected after the sixth round. He has the chance to be an RB2 again this season but should be no worse than a FLEX option.
