News: Coach Pete Carroll said Wednesday that Lynch (back, probable) "had a really good week" and is on track to play Thursday in San Francisco, Liz Matthews of 910 ESPN Seattle reports. Impact: Carroll has expressed optimism with regard to Lynch's ability to suit up in Week 13, and why not? He last missed a game in 2011, as he's frequently fended off injury to take the field. Meanwhile, in four of his last six matchups with the 49ers, including the playoffs, he's surpassed 100 yards on the ground, while reaching the end zone on eight occasions. As a result, he remains a must-start in all formats.(RotoWire, )

News: Lynch (back) was listed as a limited participant in Tuesday's practice, John Boyle of the Everett Herald reports. Impact: Coach Pete Carroll is going light on all his players on a short week, with Tuesday's practice being labeled as another walkthrough by the Seahawks. Lynch's limited projection is not much of a concern, as Carroll noted Monday that his star running back should be fine to play against the 49ers on Thanksgiving, making it likely he'll wind up probable even if he remains limited Wednesday.(RotoWire, )
Mon. Nov 24, 2014
News: Coach Pete Carroll indicated Monday that Lynch (back) should be fine for Thursday's game against the 49ers, the Everett Herald reports. Impact: The Seahawks' quick turnaround this week means that Lynch will have suit up on a day that he has skipped practice over the past few weeks, but Carroll doesn't sound too worried about Lynch's Thursday availability, noting "we'll expect that he'll be ready to go, and I know he won't want to miss (this) thing and he'll be ready to play."(RotoWire, )
Mon. Nov 24, 2014
News: Lynch struggled through an illness Sunday on the way to 39 yards on 15 carries. Impact: Lynch, who had run for 264 yards and four scores over his previous two games, isn't in danger of missing Thursday's matchup with San Francisco.(STATS, 3:14pm)
Nov 23, 2014
News: Lynch (back) had 15 carries for 39 yards and caught 3-of-4 targets for 43 yards in Sunday's 19-3 win over the Cardinals. Impact: As always, Lynch ran hard and with determination, although other than a 13-yard run at one point, he struggled against one of the best rush defenses in the league. He's got another tough matchup in Week 13, facing a rugged 49ers' defense on Thanksgiving. The short week won't help his cause much either, although he'll have 10 days to rest his back ailment, after Thursday's huge divisional game.(RotoWire, )
Nov 23, 2014
News: Lynch (back) is listed as active Sunday versus the Cardinals. Impact: Lynch responded to absences Wednesday and Thursday with a full practice Friday, thereby ensuring active status in Week 2. He almost always finds a way to produce on a weekly basis, but Arizona's defense has surrendered just 3.5 YPC and five touchdowns to running backs this season.(RotoWire, )
Fri. Nov 21, 2014
News: Lynch (back) is probable for Sunday's game against Arizona. Impact: Lynch gave his owners a slight scare when he missed Wednesday and Thursday practices, but he practiced fully Friday and is locked into the starting lineup as a result. Even against a strong Arizona run defense, it's difficult to argue that Lynch is anything other than an RB1 in most fantasy formats since he's believed to be at or near full strength.(RotoWire, )
Fri. Nov 21, 2014
News: Head coach Pete Carroll said Friday that Lynch (back) will be ready to play Sunday against the Cardinals, Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times reports. Impact: Last week, Lynch sat out Wednesday and Thursday before logging a full practice Friday, so we'll see if the same scenario unfolds this week. In any case, Carroll's confidence is good news for Lynch owners, though the banged-up running back could still be headed for a "questionable" designation heading into the weekend.(RotoWire, )
Thu. Nov 20, 2014
News: Lynch (back) sat out practice again on Thursday, the Seattle Times reports. Impact: Lynch missed practice both Wednesday and Thursday in Week 11, before practicing fully Friday, with a similar outcome plausible to close this week's sessions. Assuming that Lynch takes the field in any capacity Friday, we'd expect the running back -- who has missed just one game since being traded to Seattle in 2010 -- to suit up Sunday against the Cardinals.(RotoWire, )
Wed. Nov 19, 2014
News: The NFL has fined Lynch $50,000 for violations of the league's media policy. Impact: League spokesman Michael Signora confirmed the fine Wednesday, which will total $100,000 against the Seahawks' standout. Along with the $50,000 for violating the NFL Media Policy this year, the league is collecting the $50,000 fine that was imposed against Lynch for violations last season. The fine from 2013 was held in anticipation of future cooperation from Lynch.(STATS, 4:24pm)
Wed. Nov 19, 2014
News: Lynch (back) didn't participate in practice Wednesday, Liz Mathews of 710 ESPN Seattle reports. Impact: Lynch's back currently ails him, but he typically misses the first practice of the week anyway, so little worry currently hangs over the running back. Even if he misses practice Thursday, an appearance is likely Friday, which would forecast active status Sunday versus the Cardinals.(RotoWire, )
Mon. Nov 17, 2014
News: Lynch gained 124 yards on 24 carries in Sunday's loss to Kansas City. Impact: He had scored six touchdowns in his previous two games, so the lack of a score was a bit disappointing, yet the workhorse continues to pick up plenty of yardage after some lean weeks in September and October.(STATS, 5:12pm)
Mon. Nov 17, 2014
News: Coach Pete Carroll acknowledged Monday that Lynch (back) is "banged up," Liz Mathews of 710 ESPN Seattle reports. Impact: The reports relays that Lynch's back tightened up Sunday, which is why the running back stayed outside during halftime, but he still managed to rack up 124 rushing yards on 24 carries in Week 11. While he seems likely to miss some practice time in the coming days, we'd be surprised if he's unable to play this weekend against the Cardinals.(RotoWire, )
Nov 16, 2014
News: After a brief absence, Lynch (knee) returned to Sunday's game against the Chiefs. Impact: Lynch got worked on by the trainers at halftime and was able to return in the third quarter. He's battling a variety of ailments right now, but he's one of the toughest backs in the league.(RotoWire, )
Nov 16, 2014
News: Lynch, who suffered a knee injury in the first half of Sunday's game against the Chiefs but returned in the second half, finished with 24 carries for 124 rushing yards and one catch on three targets for one receiving yard. Impact: Lynch has been dealing with a number of nagging ailments over the last few weeks, but he still managed to rush for at least 120 yards for the second game in a row. He came into the contest with six touchdowns in his last two games, but failed to score for the fourth time in the last six. Up next is a Week 12 matchup against a Cardinals defense that is allowing the third-fewest rushing yards per game this season.(RotoWire, )
Nov 16, 2014
News: Lynch suffered a knee injury in the first half of Sunday's game against the Chiefs and is questionable to return, CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora reports. Impact: Lynch is undergoing plenty of stretching work with the trainers on the sideline, though as the Everett Herald's John Boyle notes, it appears to be focused on his back and/or hip, not his knee. In any case, Robert Turbin will take over as Seattle's primary ballcarrier, until Lynch is able to return.(RotoWire, )
Nov 16, 2014
News: Lynch (calf/rib) is active for Sunday's game at Kansas City. Impact: This isn't a big surprise, since Lynch was able to practice fully on Friday. Expect the running back to be heavily involved Sunday against Kansas City, barring any setbacks.(RotoWire, )
Nov 16, 2014
News: According to NFL Network's Albert Breer, teammates and friends expect Lynch (calf/rib, questionable) to play Sunday against the Chiefs. Impact: The report notes that Lynch had a strong practice Friday, which would seem to bode well for his chances of suiting up on Sunday. In any case, with the Seahawks kicking off at 1:00 ET this week, Lynch's Week 11 playing status will be confirmed, one way or the other, prior to the first wave of kickoffs Sunday.(RotoWire, )
Fri. Nov 14, 2014
News: Lynch is listed as questionable to play Sunday against the Kansas City Chiefs. A week after rushing for 140 yards and four touchdowns against the New York Giants, Lynch was held out of practice until Friday with calf and rib injuries. Impact: Lynch was a full participant in Friday's practice. Lynch frequently gets one or two days of rest during the week and still typically is in the lineup for games. He's missed just one game due to injury in his five years with the Seahawks.(STATS, 5:11pm)
Fri. Nov 14, 2014
News: Lynch (rib/calf) is questionable for Sunday's game against Kansas City. Impact: Lynch sat out practice both Wednesday and Thursday, but he returned on Friday to log a full practice, which is a very encouraging sign. Although he might technically be a game-time decision, Lynch's owners are lucky in that the game has an early kickoff, so any backup plans will be fully accessible. If Lynch sits, Robert Turbin and Christine Michael would figure to split the work in some fashion, with Turbin likely having the more secure hold on passing-down work.(RotoWire, )
