Oakland Raiders 2018 season grades: RB Marshawn Lynch

Leading the backfield in his second season with the Oakland Raiders was Marshawn Lynch, the hometown player and future Hall-of-Famer. With Jon Gruden returning at the helm of the Silver and Black, there was initial speculation as to just how Beast Mode would fit in Gruden’s offensive scheme coming into the 2018 season.

With Jalen Richard still in his change-of-pace role and the signing of Doug Martin for added depth, Marshawn Lynch competed the trio of running backs expected to be a focal point in the Raiders offense. Perhaps not the type of running back committee that was present in their 2016 playoff season, but contributions all around was the game plan for this season.
