Lynch carried 19 times for 64 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 28-20 loss to the Dolphins. He also caught three passes for an additional 22 yards. Lynch received his largest workload of the season, though he struggled to an average of 3.4 yards per carry. He still produced a useful line for fantasy purposes thanks to his involvement as a receiver and a one-yard touchdown run in the third quarter. Lynch has averaged just 56.7 rushing yards per game this season, but he already has three touchdowns to his name and caught seven passes to boot. The veteran seems likely to carry a hefty load most weeks and is still capable of putting up respectable numbers, which he will look to do again next Sunday against the Browns.
Lynch (shoulder) does not carry a Week 3 injury designation. Lynch was limited at practice this week, but he'll tough things out Sunday against the Dolphins. Beast Mode has logged 29 carries for 106 yards and a pair of TDs in two games to date, while adding four catches for 11 yards. Doug Martin (11 carries for 44 yards) is on hand to spell him, and Jalen Richard provides change-of-pace work, but Lynch remains a fantasy consideration as the Raiders' lead back and top goal-line option.
Lynch (shoulder) remained limited at practice Thursday. We'd expect Lynch to be a go for Sunday's game against the Dolphins, a notion that would be confirmed by his return to a full practice Friday and subsequent removal from the Raiders' Week 3 injury report.
Lynch (shoulder) was a limited practice participant Wednesday, Matt Kawahara of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Lynch was also listed with a shoulder injury last week, managing a limited practice Wednesday before upgrading to full participation Thursday and Friday. There isn't any reason to believe he's in danger of missing Sunday's game in Miami.
Lynch (shoulder) practiced in a full capacity Thursday, Matt Schneidman of The San Jose Mercury News reports. For the second week in a row, Lynch was included on the injury report. Sandwiched between those appearances, he came down with an illness during Monday's loss to the Rams. It's been an interesting run of the health, or lack thereof, for Lynch, but he's set for a Week 2 divisional matchup in Denver this Sunday. Lynch carried 11 times for 41 yards and a touchdown while catching both of his targets for eight more yards in Monday's 33-13 loss to the Rams. He'll once again do the heavy lifting in the Oakland backfield in Week 2, so long as he avoids any injury setback.
