Raiders, Seahawks agree to Marshawn Lynch trade

Fantasy Impact: 

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.
