The game-time status of one Marshawn Lynch should be the difference between winning and losing for Seattle.
After a hell of a finish to the season, it seems as if the workload finally caught up to the skittles addict because the back spasms have officially turned into a concern.
No need to fret if you are a Seattle fan despite my jump to winning or losing without Lynch, but Robert Turbin is a capable back that was an absolute stud for the Utah State Aggies.
The beast was off in his bowl game against the Ohio Bobcats, and his threat to run by or through defenders should allow rookie Russell Wilson to avoid a disastrous debut.
Still, he will have a few welcome to the NFL moments against a Cardinals defense that has arguably the best defensive back in the game.

Marshawn Lynch escaped suspension, at least for now, after being arrested for DUI this offseason, but he could still miss week 1 after his back spasms flared up again. A recurring injury, they cost Lynch one game last season and limited him throughout the preseason. If he can’t go, Robert Turbin, a 4th round rookie, would get the start.

Running back Marshawn Lynch is expected to play.
Lynch would remain a risky fantasy play though, as his workload would be uncertain and his back spasms could send him back to the sideline at any given moment during battle.
