Fantasy MasterpiecesWeek 10

Marshawn Lynch Sea - RB 2014 vs. New York Giants 21 Carries, 140 yards, 4 touchdowns Beast Mode had many memorable games as a member of the Seahawks, but none packed a bigger fantasy punch than his Week 10 bulldozing job against the Giants in ’14.

Against the G-men, Lynch punched in four of Seattle’s five touchdowns, and might have scored all five TDs had QB Russell Wilson not called his own number on a one-yard score late in the contest. In addition to his end-zone parade, Lynch rolled for 140 yards on the ground en route to delivering the best Week 10 fantasy performance by a running back since the AFL/NFL merger.
Each week of the season we will bring you the top fantasy football performances of the past 10+ years for that week.
