Baller Move: Stash in Deeper Leagues

Analysis: Marshawn Lynch has been an elite running back again in 2013, and has been beasting it recently as usual. But in Seattle’s Week 10 matchup against the Falcons Michael rushed 8 times for 33 yards, all of that coming late in the game with the Seahawks in clock-killing mode. His runs were powerful, and he showcased his talented running back skill set. If Lynch were to go down with an injury, or miss any time, Michael would most likely become the lead running back for Seattle over Robert Turbin. This rookie possesses great talent, and could excel in a lead back role. If you are a Lynch owner, or have extra bench space in deeper league, target this running back off the Week 11 waiver wire and stash him as a potential lottery ticket down the stretch. It’s a long shot, but this is football after all so anything’s possible.
