Marshawn Lynch Player Overview

Lynch drags a long list of injuries dating back to college, including the 2015 sports hernia that ultimately ended his time in Seattle. But that remains the last of his 14 documented injuries after a year back in the league with the Raiders. Oakland spent 9 games appearing unsure how to use him. But after averaging 10.8 carries over that span, Lynch racked up 18.3 over his final 6 outings. His lone missed game came via suspension for fighting. The Raiders added Doug Martin in free agency but nothing else to the backfield.
