Seattle Seahawks starting running back Marshawn Lynch is still available in 63 percent of leagues.

I am not too sure how or why this number is so low; one thing I do know is that after his three-touchdown performance this weekend, he will be one of this week's hottest pickups.

Lynch went nuts this past Sunday for three rushing touchdowns off 21 carries with 83 yards.

Lynch should be on fantasy rosters simply for the fact that he is a starting running back.

This past weekend's performance indicates he may be rounding back into the superstar form he was in with the Bills and that he needs to be in fantasy lineups during the critical championship weeks.

I will not argue that his production in Weeks 8-12 was roster worthy, but as mentioned above, starting running backs deserve a roster spot.

Lynch should be a solid flex option with RB3 upside the rest of the way.

He is currently available in 63 percent of Yahoo! leagues.
