With just 19.7 points over the past three weeks, Marshawn Lynch must put up a good performance in Oakland to avoid sliding further down the Fantasy Football Rankings. After four straight double digit fantasy games to start the season (79.2 total points, 19.2 average) Lynch hasn’t gotten one since, his longest streak of single digit fantasy games since 2011. Seahawks fans and Lynch owners alike should be worried about the drama surrounding Seattle.
Backups Ahmad Bradshaw, Ronnie Hillman, and Lamar Miller should continue to shine against poor run defenses, with Jeremy Hill set to emerge as Bernard deals with injury. Never has the waiver wire been more valuable to the running back position.
In his past three games LeSean McCoy has carried the ball 67 times, and though he may never live up to preseaon expectations, McCoy’s climb back atop the Fantasy Football Rankings begins in Week 9. Up next, The Eagles play the Panthers and Packers as this may be the last week McCoy is left out of the top running back considerations. Now is the time to buy-low on the 26-year old back.
