Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch might not play Sunday

The back spasms that forced Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch @MoneyLynch to miss one game last year and miss the past two weeks of practices might also force him to miss Sunday's game versus the Cardinals. A team source has told ESPN's Adam Schefter that the Seahawks are "uncertain" if Lynch be able to play because of the spasms. Rookie Robert Turbin @RobT_33 would probably get the start, with Leon Washington @Leon_Washington getting some spare carries, if Lynch's back doesn't get better.

Fantasy Analysis:

In one of my notes about Lynch from a few days ago, there was a slight argument in the comments section regarding the value of handcuff running backs. Well, here's one of those reasons why handcuffs can't be forgotten, especially if the handcuff is a legitimate NFL-caliber back. If Turbin gets the start, I figure he's going to get at least 15 touches against Arizona, including the goal-line carries. He's big but explosive. I'd pick up Turbin in all 12-team leagues right now.
