Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said running back Marshawn Lynch, who missed the first part of camp in a contract holdout, "needs a lot of work" to return to form. "He's coming along," Carroll said.
Lynch ended his holdout last Thursday, but has been rusty after missing the early portion of training camp. The Seahawks are planning on incorporating Christian Michael into the team's offensive scheme more in 2014 which is going to factor into Lynch's touches and his recent holdout certainly didn't help his case. Despite the negatives, Lynch is still a top top 10 running back heading into 2014 as long as he makes it out of camp healthy.ANALYST: Matthew Beck
Mike Pelfrey was demoted to the bullpen for the start of the season.
Pelfrey lost out to Tommy Milone for the fifth starter's job, but that hardly seems like a surprise. His move to the pen means that he's probably not even going to see much of a chance even if the Twins need a spot start as they can always bring back Trevor May who also looked better than Pelfrey. You can feel good about ignoring Pelfrey in all fantasy formats. Analysis: Howard Bender
