Marshawn Lynch, RB, Oakland Raiders @ Los Angeles Chargers
DK Price: $5,500
Lynch was in vintage “Beastmode” form last week going for 157 scrimmage yards against the Browns. Lynch has a locked in role as the lead back on this offense. His 300 rushing yards ranks 3rd in the league right now. Lynch’s 41 evaded tackles and 166 yards created are also best in the league amongst all RB’s according to PlayerProfiler.com.
The Chargers have been merely middle of the pack when it comes to fantasy points allowed to running backs this season. There is plenty of opportunity in another potentially high scoring affair for Lynch to put up a solid game. He provides great value priced as the RB16 on Sunday despite his 16.8 FPPG ranking him as RB7 on DraftKings.
