Starter: Marshawn Lynch—5'11" 215 lbs
An in-season trade, Lynch brought a much needed spark to the Seahawks offence on the ground. Who could forget his beast mode run in Seattle's upset over New Orleans in the playoffs?
Behind a porous Bills and Seahawks line Lynch ran for 737 yards and had six touchdowns. Now behind a revamped, highly skilled albeit inexperienced line Lynch will be the focal point of the offence.
Back-up: Justin Forsett—5'8" 198lbs
Forsett and Lynch were teammates at Cal and complement each other nicely. Lynch brings the muscle while Forsett brings the agility.
Last season Forsett rushed for 523 yards and two touchdowns and paired with Lynch this upcoming season should lead Seattle to one of the better rushing attacks in the NFC.
Back-up: Leon Washington—5'8" 203lbs
A tweener between Lynch and Forsett, Washington brings power and speed. He only rushed for 100 yards and a touchdown last year but can spell Lynch and Forsett when need be.
Also Washington was recovering from season ending leg surgery last year and is 100% healthy this season.
He is the primary kick returner and will be kept fresh for special teams over carrying the rock 10-plus times a game.
