Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch turned in another productive outing in Week 4 against the Houston Texans, rushing for 98 yards and a touchdown. He also caught three passes for 45 yards. His strong showing was only tarnished slightly by a lost fumble.
Even against the toughest of defensive opponents, Lynch manages to grind out fantasy points in bunches. He is the workhorse back for one of the best running teams in the NFL, so his work load shouldn't decrease anytime soon.
Fantasy spin: Lynch was a first-round pick in most fantasy leagues and he's living up the hype. The Seahawks have relied heavily on the running game to start the season, and Lynch has rewarded them with consistently strong production.
With the offensive line blocking the way it is, and Lynch still running hard, it's safe to call him a matchup-proof running back going forward. He should be in your lineup each and every week.
