Marshawn Out for Week 1?

Updated: September 5, 2012

Source: Bleacher Report

NFL.com is reporting that the Seahawks’ Marshawn Lynch could miss week 1 with back spasms. According to them the team is feeling good about him overall but he still could miss week 1. The question that this raises is this: What effect does this have on his and rookie quarterback Russell Wilson’s points and overall fantasy numbers?

With over 1200 yards rushing last year, Lynch is surely going to be counted on a great deal as the Seahawks seek to get Russell Wilson settled in at the QB slot. There is no indication that he could miss more than one week but considering the rookie quarterback it could effect, the missing of week one could mean more. If he gets rattled or shaken now, will he be able to recover or will it affect his entire rookie season.

The good news is that Wilson seems to carry himself with a great deal of poise for a rookie. All of that could change quickly with the season starting for real but if the backup RBs do a decent job, the added pressure on Wilson could actually turn out to be a good thing for him. Keep an eye on Lynch but it’s doubtful you should have to sit him for more than this week. It’s not worth eying a trade for certain.
