Fantasy Analysis
Since taking over as Seattle's full-time starting tailback in 2011, "Beast Mode" has finished as a top-six fantasy runner in most scoring formats two years in a row, and the 27-year-old Lynch is coming off the best season of his career. The eighth-year pro racked up a personal-best 315 carries, which ranked fifth in the NFL, and his career-high 1,590 rushing yards ranked second behind 2012 rushing champion Adrian Peterson. The powerful 5-foot-11, 215-pound Lynch runs much bigger than his size, and he has enough speed and shiftiness to make tacklers miss. Unfortunately, Lynch isn't a big part of the passing game; he has averaged just 26 catches, 204 receiving yards and one touchdown grab per season during the last two years. But Lynch's lack of production as a receiver is offset by his consistency. Lynch has rushed for at least 85 yards in 23 of his last 26 games and has scored 23 touchdowns during that stretch. Even with talented new go-to receiver Percy Harvin in the fold, the Seahawks insist they will continue to pound the football with Lynch. He is a rock-solid fantasy RB1. By the way, Lynch's DUI trial has been delayed until December 27th, so don't worry about him any games.

Rushing: 950 Yards, 8 TD.
Receiving: 28 Receptions, 215 Yards, 1 TD.

Draft Analysis
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 TDs last year half of which came in one game.
Draft Strategy
Im 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. (Contributed by: Mad_Puppy)

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)
