Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch is game-time decision

ESPN's NFL insider (and huge Slayer fan) John Clayton reported on SportsCenter that Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch @MoneyLynch will be a game-time decision in his Week 1 game at the Arizona Cardinals. Clayton said, "This is gonna go up to game day. They think he's gonna play, but they're not sure." Lynch is dealing with back spasms that have been flaring up recently. Lynch practiced in a limited capacity on Thursday.

Fantasy Analysis:

Lynch, I call him Mr. Beastmode, should see at least limited action. The concern is him exacerbating the issue during the game or simply taking a shot in the back. The practice reports will continue to trickle in over the next 48 hours so there will be updates leading up to the game. Unfortunately it's going to all be speculation and conjecture until they announce his status one way or the other. Should Lynch not play, rookie Robert Turbin @RobT_33 could be a big factor.

Marshawn Lynch is many things, but he is definitely not Mr. Beastmode. That title belongs with someone thats actually a beast....maybe Patrick Willis ? I'd say the Giants RB Bradshaw is more beast mode. That guy dresses for games all the time with injury. Maybe we could get Marshawn Lynch a Junior Beastmode T-shirt.

Oh yeah, and I'd like to remind you that I was right about Leinhart a few seasons ago. We will never hear from that guy again in the NFL. USC is not a school with a program that produces NFL quality quarterbacks in this day and age. As further evidence please let me present Mark Sanchez. Dunfee's fearless fantasy prediction - Tim Tebow will be the Jets starter by week 8 and we'll never see Sanchez start for an NFL team again.
