Carroll Refuses To Name Justin Forsett Or Marshawn Lynch The Starter

With running back Marshawn Lynch now in the fold, Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll has a decision to make on who will start for the Hawks. If he's made the decision, Carroll isn't tipping his hand in the days leading up to this weekend's game. One thing is clear: Lynch will see plenty of time right away for the Seahawks.

950 KJR's Curtis Crabtree had the notes from Pete Carroll's meeting with the media.

Carroll wouldn't announce a starter at running back between Marshawn Lynch & Justin Forsett. Said it would be game-time decision. #Seahawksless than a minute ago via TweetDeck

Naturally, the sly head coach will keep the decision under wraps until the last minute. Whomever is named the start should expect to share the load in the backfield, though.

Lynch is a great red zone threat for Seattle and should also see plenty of time in short-yardage situations. Justin Forsett, on the other hand, will play the role of a speed back, giving the Seahawks a slam and slash combination.

Adjust your fantasy football lineups accordingly.
