Strength of schedule is calculated from the opponents projected fantasy points allowed for the RB position. The best rating is +16 which gives the player the advantage against the defense and indicates an easy opponent, the worst rating is -16 which gives the defense the advantage and indicates a tough opponent.
Dan Herron is no Marshawn Lynch. New England is going to put their corners in man coverage and stack the box to limit his success. Seattle gets Right Tackle Justin Britt back after missing the NFC Championship. If the Seahawks can feed Lynch the ball 20+ times, they'll control the game.
Since joining the Seahawks in 2010, Lynch has been the perfect complement to their run-first offense. Utilizing his no nonsense straight ahead intense running style, Lynch has finished as a top-5 fantasy running back for three consecutive seasons. Despite his head-on hard-charging style, Lynch is deceptively hard for defenses to bring down racking up 2.5 yards after contact last season. Lynch will be 28 when the season begins and has had issues with back spasms in the past, but managed to play all 16 games last season. While he may be spelled from time to time as Seattle looks to get second year running back Christine Michael some work, "Beast Mode" remains the clear No. 1 running back in Seattle. Although, you should expect a drop of between 40-50 touches for Lynch of his 2013 total.
though. What a win. Glad they are letting the kid(DangerRuss) air it out a bit more. Can't play QB in this league without the full playbook and stretching the field.
Hah.. I love Richard Sherman's bravado and persona, but certainly don't want to ...

2011 Draft Central
Average Draft Position (ADP) Tracker
Round 4, Pick 12
Positives Sturdy back capable of 1300 total yards (rushing + receiving). After five games last year the Hawks traded for Lynch. He is firmly entrenched as the starter with a revamped offensive line. Full offseason with the Hawks will make him better prepared for the season.
Capable receiver out of backfield. Negatives Had a lower per carry average than Forsett last year. Forsett is a good receiver and will take potential receptions from him as the 3rd down back. Six TD’s last year half of which came in one game. Draft Strategy I’m liking what the Hawks have done to the offensive line. Lynch is a workhorse back who is a capable receiver out of the backfield. The RB whores are out in full force in this league. Starting to get thin at RB. Welker was available and in the PPR format will be great, however I needed a #2 running back.

Round 7, Pick 4
Positives Starting RB for Seahawks. Negatives young OL and past behavior problems. Draft Strategy good choice for 3rd RB. (Contributed by: tlandavazo)
