Marshawn Lynch Suspended One Game, Will Appeal
Oakland Raiders running back Marshawn Lynch has been suspended one game by the NFL for his role in an on-field fracas Thursday night against the Chiefs in which he made contact with and pushed an official. He will appeal the suspension, and a hearing is expected to take place early next week, according to a source. The good news is we should know whether Lynch will be able to play in Week 8 or not by early next week. Lynch has been a big fantasy disappointment and essentially is a touchdown-dependent RB3/flex. Plan to be without him next week against the Bills. That’ll make Jalen Richard and DeAndre Washington waiver wire options for the running back-needy. Neither will be more than a desperation flex option if Lynch’s suspension holds up, but Richard has a little more appeal in PPR setups.
