    Oakland Raiders RB Marshawn Lynch is expected to be on the field for first and second downs with the Raiders. RB DeAndre Washington, RB Jalen Richard and FB Jamize Olawale are expected to see time on third down.

    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.

  • Posted: 4/26/2017 7:47am ET

    Updating earlier reports, Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch's rights are headed to the Oakland Raiders, along with a sixth-round pick in 2018, for a fifth-round pick from the Raiders in 2018.

    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

    Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch has agreed to a one-year deal with the Oakland Raiders Wednesday, April 26, and the two teams have agreed to compensation, according to sources. The NFL draft compensation will be a swap of late-round picks in 2018. The deal and swap are contingent on Lynch passing a physical. The one-year deal has a $3 million base salary with a chance to earn $2 million more if he reaches 1,000 yards. The max value of the contract is $8.5 million.

    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.

  • Posted: 4/25/2017 8:34am ET

    Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch and the Oakland Raiders are still talking about a revised contract, according to Seahawks general manager John Schneider. 'Nothing really new,?? Schneider said. 'They?re still talking. The steps after that were to be that if they came to an agreement, (Raiders GM) Reggie (McKenzie) and I would discuss a form of compensation.'

    Huddle Up: Lynch would be a low-end RB2 in fantasy if he lands with the Raiders.

  • Posted: 4/18/2017 9:32am ET

    Retired RB Marshawn Lynch (Seahawks) has an agreement in place to join the Oakland Raiders, if the Seattle Seahawks trade his rights. However, the deal may have a deadline of the 2017 NFL Draft. Oakland could move on if it drafts a power back, in the opinion of NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

    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.

  • Posted: 4/14/2017 2:50pm ET

    Updating a previous report, retired RB Marshawn Lynch has not agreed to the parameters of a contract with the Oakland Raiders at this point but a deal is expected to happen.

    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.

  • Posted: 4/14/2017 1:08pm ET

    Retired RB Marshawn Lynch (Seahawks) agreed to an undisclosed deal with the Oakland Raiders on Friday, April 14, after the Seattle Seahawks granted permission for him to visit the Raiders last week. Oakland must now work out a trade with Seattle before the deal can become official.

    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.

  • Posted: 4/13/2017 7:42am ET

    Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch is expected to be traded to the Oakland Raiders, according to sources. The deal is contingent on a reworked contract first. Lynch had permission to talk to the Raiders, and his agents have permission to rework his deal.

    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

    Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch has begun the reinstatement process into the NFL, according to a source. He's hoping to play with the Oakland Raiders or team with CB Richard Sherman if he's traded.

    Huddle Up: Beast Mode would be a low-end RB2 in fantasy without a lot of upside, especially in PPR formats.

  • Posted: 4/10/2017 12:36pm ET

    Former Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch is interested in playing for the New England Patriots if plans to play for the Oakland Raiders fall through.

    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

    Retired RB Marshawn Lynch told the Oakland Raiders that he intends to unretire and play again, according to sources.

    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

    Retired RB Marshawn Lynch is meeting with the Oakland Raiders Wednesday, April 5, according to sources. The Seattle Seahawks own Lynch's rights and are fine with the visit.

    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

    Retired RB Marshawn Lynch misses football and there's 'no question' about it, according to his agent Doug Hendrickson.

    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

    Retired RB Marshawn Lynch has real interest in playing for the Oakland Raiders, according to a source. Lynch is still under contract with the Seattle Seahawks.

    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

    Retired Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch retweeted a message Saturday, March 18, showing that one of his musical playlists contains a song titled 'Oakland Raiders.'

    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

    Retired Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch has a 'very good chance' to end his one-year retirement, according to a source with knowledge of the situation.

    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

    Contrary to a previous report, retired RB Marshawn Lynch did visit the Seattle Seahawks' headquarters Thursday, March 16, but did not request his release. Lynch has stayed in shape and is considered playing again. The Seahawks are open to trading Lynch's rights to a team, but the Seahawks were not willing to release him last season when there were rumors of Lynch considering a comeback.

    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

    Updating a previous story, retired RB Marshawn Lynch met with Seattle Seahawks general manager John Schneider and head coach Pete Carroll on Thursday, March 16, to ask for his release, according to the Huffington Post's Jordan Schultz.

    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

    Former Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch could be potentially acquired by the Oakland Raiders either via trade or release, according to sources. Lynch retired last season.

    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

    Retired RB Marshawn Lynch is 'up in the air' about a possible return, according to a source with knowledge of the situation. If Lynch does return, the same source said Week 4 or Week 5 are the likeliest return dates.

    Huddle Up: A potential return is just a rumor at this point, and Lynch can be left on the waiver wire for now.

  • Posted: 5/13/2016 9:50am ET

    Retired Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch hasn't filed retirement papers, according to a source with knowledge of the situation, and he has not contacted the team about his plans for 2016.

    Huddle Up: Anyone else envision a scenario where Lynch takes the summer off, then shows up in mid-August saying he still wants to play? Until those retirement papers are submitted, best keep a spot for Lynch at the bottom of your cheat sheet... just in case.

  • Posted: 5/6/2016 12:26pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch has been placed on the league's reserve/retired list.

    Huddle Up: Perhaps the big clue was Seattle drafting three running backs, but it definitely appears as if Lynch's productive and memorable nine- year NFL run has come to an end.
