Huddle Up: Some rust should be expected of Lynch after a one-year hiatus and missing half of the previous season due to injury. He should still see enough volume on first and second downs to be a low-end RB2 in fantasy.

Huddle Up: Lynch is slated to lead Oakland's backfield, and while he isn't a sure thing coming back from a one-year layoff, he has enough upside to draft as a RB2.

Huddle Up: Lynch should step into the lead role in Oakland's backfield, and with one of the best offensive lines in front of him, RB2 production isn't out of the question.

Huddle Up: Lynch should lead Oakland's backfield and handle most of the carries near the goal line. Behind a stout offensive line, he is worth a look as a low-end RB2.

Huddle Up: Lynch should receive most of the carries for the Raiders in 2017 and likely will not receive many targets in the passing game. He should be considered a No. 2 or No. 3 running back in most leagues but will have more value in standard leagues.

Huddle Up: Lynch, now 31, has been out of the game for a full year and missed half the year due to injuries in 2015. He has an incentive-laden deal and could still reach 1,000 yards. He's a RB2 possibility in fantasy.
Posted: 4/26/2017 5:29am ET
Huddle Up: The last we saw of Beast Mode, he rushed for just 417 yards and three scores on 111 attempts in an injury-riddled 2015. He just turned 31 and could still approach the 1,000-yard plateau. However, his upside in fantasy is minimal as an aging RB2.

Huddle Up: Lynch would be a low-end RB2 in fantasy if he lands with the Raiders.
Posted: 4/18/2017 9:32am ET
Huddle Up: As this story evolves, we'll keep you updated. An Oakland-employed Lynch would be a high-risk, high-reward RB2 in fantasy drafts.

Huddle Up: The Raiders should be able to a deal with Lynch in the near future but would still need to acquire his rights from the Seattle Seahawks. He likely will receive most of the carries if he joins the Raiders and can be a No. 2 or No. 3 running back for fantasy owners.

Huddle Up: This looks like it is going to happen after all. The contract will likely be for one year and the trade compensation Seattle receives will probably be a late-round conditional pick. Lynch retired in 2016 after suffering through an injury-plagued 2015, so it is fair to wonder how much the soon-to-be 31-year-old has left in the tank. With that said, he would almost certainly assume goal-line and early-down duties behind one of the best offensive lines in the league. Lynch could have low-end RB2 value if this deal works out.

Huddle Up: Lynch turns 31 in a few days, and after only 111 carries in 2015, he has essentially missed a year-and-a-half. It'll take time for his body to get used to the punishment again. He also doesn't catch many passes, which hurts his value in the popular PPR format. He's still Beast Mode, though, and he'll still be a grinder that you could see as a low-end RB2.
Posted: 4/13/2017 7:39am ET
Huddle Up: Beast Mode would be a low-end RB2 in fantasy without a lot of upside, especially in PPR formats.

Huddle Up: Talk about the rich possibly getting richer. The last thing the NFL needs is the defending Super Bowl champs adding Lynch. Of course, Lynch would split time with other backs like Dion Lewis and James White, but he could be their main ground-and-pound guy. Keep tabs on this situation as the offseason progresses.
Posted: 4/5/2017 1:49pm ET
Huddle Up: The Raiders may need to trade for Lynch since the Seattle Seahawks still own his rights, but the two sides should be able to agree to something if Lynch wants to play for the Raiders. He likely would receive most of the carries if he joins the Raiders and can be considered a No. 2 fantasy running back.
Posted: 4/5/2017 11:23am ET
Huddle Up: The Raiders have been linked to Lynch this offseason and could acquire him if he wants to continue his playing career. He likely would receive most of the carries if he joins the Raiders and could be a No. 2 running back in fantasy leagues.
Posted: 3/21/2017 9:42pm ET
Huddle Up: This could be another hint that Lynch is on his way back to the NFL after a year away from the game, but Hendrickson also contended that the former Seattle Seahawks is 'the kind of guy that can shift by the hour.' If the 30-year-old does return and winds up with the Raiders, he should immediately be someone of great interest to fantasy owners, especially considering how successful Oakland's offense was last season.
Posted: 3/20/2017 6:47am ET
Huddle Up: Lynch wouldn't be anything more than a risky RB2 in fantasy if he were to come back.
Posted: 3/19/2017 6:05pm ET
Huddle Up: There has been a lot of speculation on Lynch's future, and he has been linked to the Oakland Raiders. If he does end up in the silver and black, he should be the primary power back and have a chance to deliver RB2 production.
Posted: 3/18/2017 7:41pm ET
Huddle Up: If Lynch returns, the Seahawks will likely have to release him or trade him. The situation is worth keeping an eye on. In the right offense, Lynch could still be a solid RB2.
Posted: 3/17/2017 5:08pm ET
Huddle Up: Owners will need to keep an eye on the situation to see if Lynch decides to play again. The Oakland Raiders appear to be his most likely destination if he plays but they may need to trade for his rights. Lynch was one of the better running backs when he played and could be a No. 2 or No. 3 running back in some leagues if he is healthy.
Posted: 3/17/2017 12:45pm ET
Huddle Up: The Seahawks still hold Lynch's rights although he announced his retirement last season. While this could feed further speculation that Lynch is trying to clear a path in order to join his hometown Oakland Raiders, it's usually not a good idea to predict what 'Beast Mode' is thinking. Lynch averaged 3.8 yards per carry in 2015 and was having trouble staying healthy, so it is debatable how great of an addition the 30-year-old (31 in April) would be for Oakland anyway.
Posted: 3/17/2017 5:35am ET
Huddle Up: Beast Mode turns 31 next month, and it would be hard to expect RB1 numbers after the layoff and an injury-riddled 2015 season. He would be a speculative pick late in early drafts.
Posted: 9/8/2016 6:00pm ET
Huddle Up: A potential return is just a rumor at this point, and Lynch can be left on the waiver wire for now.
