Fantasy Football 2012: Marshawn Lynch, Held Out Of The End Zone In Week 1, Should Have Better Luck In Week 2

Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch might have been held out of the end zone in the team's 20-16 loss to the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday, but a full week of practice and a Week 2 matchup against the Dallas Cowboys should give fantasy owners hope.

Lynch battled back spasms last week and was listed as questionable heading into Week 1, but he was able to start and managed to rack up 85 yards on 21 carries against a Cardinals run defense that had stymied him and kept him out of the end zone in each of their last two meetings last year.

Fantasy owners should consider Lynch a high-end option at RB1 in Week 2, as he's had a fair amount of success against the Cowboys rush defense in the past, rushing for 201 yards and a touchdown against them last season. He also added three catches for 40 yards, which would bee a nice bonus in PPR leagues.
