2013 Outlook: Stud (low risk)

Last updated on Aug-12-2013 by Shawn Larabee

An elite talent who has been dominant the last two years, Lynch should be a no-brainer pick in the first round of fantasy drafts. The only possible wrinkle is the looming spectre of league discipline stemming from DUI charges last year. No trial date has yet been set and Lynch has filed a motion to have his case dismissed. Under the league's substance abuse policy, players are typically only fined for a first time DUI offense. However, Lynch has been suspended before. If he's found guilty this time, he could face a lengthy suspension as a repeat offender under the league's personal conduct policy.

2013 Mock Draft Results

Month Position Franchise/Comments
2013 FFToolbox Staff Mock Draft #1
June 18th, 2013
1.11 FFToolbox - Rob Warner - Beast Mode is 27 years old, has amassed 23 rushing TDs over the past two seasons and will remain the focal point of an offense averaged 26 PPG (and that was without Percy Harvin). Granted Lynch has averaged just 25 catches during his 3 seasons in Seattle but he has missed just 1 game over the past 3 seasons and is solid value at #11 in round 1.
2013 FFToolbox Expert Mock Draft #2
July 2nd 2013
1.11 BFD Fantasy - Call me crazy but the top RB on a team that loathes throwing the football looks pretty darn good to me at #11. Marshawn seems to have some people worried, I wouldn't be.
2013 FFToolbox Expert Mock Draft #1
June 25th, 2013
2.01 Bruno Boys - As I stated above the value at the turn in this draft was of the running back variety. This pick still gave me some pause though. On the one hand I had several valuable PPR options in Matt Forte and Steven Jackson but on the other hand Marshawn Lynch, a notably anti-PPR back, was available. Lynch has an absolute stranglehold on his role in Seattle and the expected growth of the offense was too tempting to pass up. The potential boost to goal line touches was enough for me to take him as a safe option here after his two consecutive top 6 PPR RB finishes. The DUI case is a concern but not enough of one to pass on elite talent.
2013 FFToolbox Expert Mock Draft #3
