UPDATE: Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch expected to play

A league source told Pro Football Talk that "unless something crazy happens" Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch @MoneyLynch is expected to play despite being listed as questionable because of back spasms. Throughout the week, Lynch's status has been considered a game-time decision situation, but this is the most definitive news yet. Rookie back Robert Turbin @RobT_33 will still likely see some action in order to not overwork Lynch in Week 1.

Fantasy Analysis:

While this is good news for Lynch owners, let's not suddenly forget that Lynch has been an injury prone guy throughout his career. He isn't a safe play but I can understand starting him regardless. Seattle will be relying heavily on him rather than putting the weight of the entire offense on Russell Wilson @DangeRussWilson's shoulders. That's why Turbin is a nice add in any format with good-sized rosters. Lynch is already banged up and we haven't even played a single game so it's safe to assume he'll need a week or two off sooner or later.
