Daily Fantasy Stock Report: Former Seattle RB Marshawn Lynch shuts the door on a comeback

Every morning we compile the most important fantasy football links of the day for you to stay up-to-date and ahead of your fantasy opponents… This is your number one place for beat writer blabber, injury news, transaction tracking, and fantasy analysis from the experts who taught us a thing or two.

“I’m retired,” Lynch said. “Is that good enough? Which camera do you want me to look into? This one? I’m done.”

Last week, Beast Mode’s former teammates opened the door for a possible comeback for the former running back, but he slammed that door shut during an interview with Showtime. With Lynch’s retirement, there is an uncertainty in the Seattle backfield heading into the 2016 season, as the Seahawks are trying to work in two rookies while Thomas Rawls is recovering from a season-ending injury. It will be interesting to see if the ‘Hawks will go away from their physical running game with Russell Wilson’s progression and the lack of a physical running back.

“Dolphins HC Adam Gase said he wants his running backs to be able to play all three downs. He doesn’t want to sub too much on offense.”

The summer of Jay Ajayi continued on Monday, as his head coach mentioned that Ajayi needed to be on the field for all three downs. Ajayi was a three-down runner in college and has the skills to become the same for the Dolphins. If the former Boise State star continues to improve his third down skills, he will separate himself from rookie Kenyan Drake, who is a prototypical third down back.

We mentioned last week that Lions running back Ameer Abdullah underwent offseason shoulder surgery and that his status for training camp was unclear. Now, it looks like he will be available for training camp to cement his status as Detroit’s three-down back and become a viable fantasy RB2. If he cures his fumblitis, he has the skill-set to become a fantasy monster.

DeSean Jackson was spotted at practice on Monday, via the team’s Twitter account. The speedster skipped OTAs up to this point; however, he finally showed up, albeit with a lighter wallet. A healthy and engaged Jackson will only help quarterback Kirk Cousins, who suddenly has a loaded pass catching group, which includes; Jordan Reed, Pierre Garcon, rookie Josh Doctson and Jackson.

Not strictly fantasy:

  • Aqib Talib Plaxico’d himself over the weekend
  • Darren Sproles arrived at Philadelphia OTAs
  • Our favorite drunk grandfather, Wade Phillips, had quite the live Tweet-sesh during the Broncos’ trip to the White House
