Lynch rushed for 101 yards on 19 carries and added two receptions for 18 yards on three targets in Sunday's loss to the Chargers. He finishes his 2017 campaign with 207 carries for 891 yards and seven touchdowns to go along with 20 catches for 151 yards on 31 targets.

EDGE Analysis

Lynch surpassed the 100-yard rushing mark for just the second time all season in the Raiders' 2017 finale, but the veteran failed to find the end zone for a third consecutive game. Lynch's return from retirement with Oakland was respectable as he posted an average of 4.3 yards per carry while finding the end zone seven times, but the Raiders' offense ultimately fell well short of expectations en route to a 6-10 record. Lynch is slated to return in 2018 when the offense may be under new direction if the team elects to move on from offensive coordinator Todd Downing, which could provide a boost for the potential production of what should be an above-average offensive line.

Lynch rushed 25 times for 95 yards, but lost a fumble in Monday's 19-10 loss to the Eagles.

EDGE Analysis

Lynch also lost three yards in the passing game despite catching two of three targets. On the whole, it was a mixed performance from the veteran, even though his volume of touches allowed him to post his second-most rushing yards in a game this season. In Week 17, Lynch will face the Chargers, who he rushed for 63 yards on 13 carries against earlier this season.

Lynch rushed 16 times for 76 yards while catching three of four targets for 16 yards during Sunday's 20-17 loss to the Cowboys.

EDGE Analysis

Lynch, who had been averaging a healthy 4.9 yards per carry over his past four games, continued his efficient ways Sunday, ultimately finishing with a 4.8-yard average. However, his three-game touchdown streak came to a close despite Lynch having multiple chances in the red zone. Now averaging 92.6 total yards over his last five while scoring three touchdowns across that time span, the Oakland native will face one of his biggest tests of the season in Week 16 against an Eagles front surrendering only 3.7 yards per carry in 2017, fifth lowest in the league.

Lynch rushed seven times for 61 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's loss to the Chiefs, adding one reception on two targets for three yards.

EDGE Analysis

Lynch notched just eight touches as the Raiders played from behind for a majority of Sunday's contest, while quarterback Derek Carr shouldered the load with 41 passing attempts. Despite his limited volume, Lynch managed to find the end zone on a 22-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter, while he also averaged a healthy 8.7 yards per carry on his seven rushing attempts. He's now scored five touchdowns in Oakland's past five games, so he'll look to maintain the momentum in Week 15 against the Cowboys.

Lynch rushed 17 times for 101 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 24-17 win over the Giants, adding two catches on three passing attempts for twenty yards.

EDGE Analysis

It was Lynch's first 100-yard rushing performance of the season, and it came in large part thanks to his breaking a 51-yard touchdown on the Raiders' first drive of the game. The 31-year-old's usage seems to be trending up, with back-to-back weeks of at least 19 touches, after seeing more than 13 just once since Week 1. He'll try to keep the momentum going against Kansas City in Week 14.

Lynch does not carry an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Giants after returning to a full practice Friday.

EDGE Analysis

Lynch's absence from practice Thursday was not injury-related. With the Raiders' wideout corps minus Michael Crabtree (suspension) and Amari Cooper (ankle/concussion) this week, Lynch -- who has totaled 51 carries for 191 yards and three touchdowns over his last three outings -- could be counted on heavily by his team Sunday.

Lynch's absence from Thursday's practice was not injury-related.

EDGE Analysis

Assuming he returns to the field Friday, Lynch could be on track for a busy Sunday against the Giants, with the Raiders likely to head into the weekend with a wideout corps lacking in star power due to Michael Crabtree's suspension and Amari Cooper's (concussion/ankle) iffy Week 13 injury status.

Lynch (undisclosed) wasn't spotted at the start of Thursday's practice, Michael Gehlken of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.

EDGE Analysis

Added clarity on what, if anything, is ailing Lynch, should arrive upon the release of Thursday's official practice report. With a short-handed wideout corps likely in play this weekend, the Raiders could well go run-heavy against the Giants on Sunday. So far, there's nothing to suggest that Lynch's Week 13 status is in any peril, but we'll let you know if that changes.

Lynch ran 26 times for 67 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 21-14 win over the Broncos. He also caught all three passes thrown his way for 44 more yards.

EDGE Analysis

Lynch served as the clock killer in this one, handling all the Raiders' carries once they got up 21-0. His 29 touches on the day blew away his previous high for the season of 19 in Week 1. His three receptions and 44-yards receiving were both also season highs. Unfortunately, he wasn't as effective a rusher in this one as he had been in recent weeks, managing just 2.6 YPC on the day, his lowest total since he last faced Denver in Week 4. The 31-year-old has some middle-of-the-road matchups over the next few weeks, starting at home against the GIants in Week 13.

Lynch rushed 11 times for 67 yards in Sunday's 33-8 loss to the Patriots. He also added 10 yards on his one reception.

EDGE Analysis

After only topping the 50-yard plateau once through the season's first five weeks, Lynch has 57 or more yards in three of his last four, the one exception being when he was ejected in Week 7. While he saw over half the carries in this contest and continues to be the Raiders' lead ball carrier, he still hasn't rushed more than 14 times in a game since Week 1. Given his relatively low ceiling at this point in his career, it will be tough to trust Lynch when the Raiders take on the Broncos in Week 12.
