Marshawn Lynch running
.
Here are the Lester’s Legends running back rankings for Super Bowl XLIX.
.
1. Marshawn Lynch, Seattle Seahawks
Marshawn Lynch averaged 104.6 total yards and 1.1 touchdowns per game during the regular season. He had just 65 total yards in the playoff win over the Carolina Panthers, but rolled on the Green Bay Packers for 183 total yards and a touchdown in the NFC Championship. Look for Beast Mode to play a key roll against the New England Patriots because after all, he all ’bout that action boss. Bill Belichick is known limiting his opponent’s strengths. I’m not sure how much he can do that to Lynch.
.
2. LeGarrette Blount, New England Patriots
LeGarrette Blount averaged 59.8 total yards and 0.6 touchdowns after returning to the New England Patriots. He had three carries for one yard against the Ravens. You never know how Bill Belichick will use his backs. Blount blasted the Indianapolis Colts for 148 yards and three touchdowns. If only the Patriots had properly inflated balls. The Colts would have been able to tackle them better. That should not be an issue in the Super Bowl though so he’ll find tougher sledding against the Seahawks’ third-ranked run defense.
.
3. Shane Vereen, New England Patriots
Shane Vereen averaged 52.4 total yards and 0.3 touchdowns per game during the regular season. He had just one carry for six yards in the win against the Baltimore Ravens, but he caught four passes for 39 yards. Vereen had one carry for two yards against the Colts, but caught three passes for 41 yards.

Here are the Lester’s Legends quarterback rankings for Super Bowl XLIX.
.
1. Tom Brady, New England Patriots
Tom Brady averaged 268.6 yards and 2.2 touchdowns in the first 15 games of the regular season before the Patriots took it easy in the season finale. Brady has 49 touchdown passes in 28 career playoff games. He threw for 367 yards and three touchdowns against the Baltimore Ravens despite a non-existent running game. Brady only had to throw for 226 yards against the Indianapolis Colts’ run defense was deflated. He threw three touchdowns though. Brady threw for 395 yards and a pair of touchdowns in 2012 against the Seattle Seahawks as they were becoming a premier defense. Seattle ranked first in scoring defense, fourth in total defense, and sixth in passing defense.  That’s the game where “You mad bro” was coined. Yes, Brady is mad. I expect him to exact revenge.
.
2. Russell Wilson, Seattle Seahawks
Russell Wilson averaged 217.2 passing yards, 1.3 touchdown passes, 53.1 rushing yards and 0.4 rushing touchdowns. He threw for 268 yards and three touchdowns in the playoff win over the Carolina Panthers. He bottomed out a bit against the Green Bay Packers throwing four interceptions, but he rallied when he needed to. Wilson finished with 209 yards and the game-winning touchdown. He also added 25 yards and a touchdown on the ground. Wilson’s running ability and tendency to take care of the football (the NFC title game withstanding) can mitigate his sometimes underwhelming passing totals.

Here are the Lester’s Legends tight end rankings for the AFC and NFC Conference Championship Games of the 2014-15 NFL Playoffs.
.
1. Rob Gronkowski, New England Patriots
Rob Gronkowski averaged 74.9 yards and 0.8 touchdowns per game. He had 108 yards and a touchdown in the playoff win over the Baltimore Ravens. Gronk had 71 yards and a touchdown in the first meeting with the Indianapolis Colts.
.
2. Coby Fleener, Indianapolis Colts
Coby Fleener averaged 48.4 yards and 0.5 touchdowns per game, but finished the year averaging 61.4 yards and 0.8 touchdowns in the final five games of the regular season. He is averaging 33.5 yards per game in the Colts’ two playoff wins, but he ripped the New England Patriots for 144 yards during the regular season.
.
3. Dwayne Allen, Indianapolis Colts
Dwayne Allen averaged 30.4 yards and 0.6 touchdowns per game. He had 30 yards in both playoff wins over the Cincinnati Bengals and the Denver Broncos. Allen scored a touchdown against Denver. He is not going to overwhelm you with receiving yards, but he’s a solid bet to get in the end zone.
.
4. Luke Wilson, Seattle Seahawks
Luke Wilson averaged 24.1 yards and 0.2 touchdowns per game on the year. He exceeded expectations last week with 68 yards and a score in the playoff win over the Carolina Panthers. Wilson had one yard in the first meeting with the Green Bay Packers so don’t expect a repeat playoff performance.
.
5. Andrew Quarless, Green Bay Packers
Andrew Quarless averaged 20.2 yards and 0.2 touchdowns per game during the regular season. He caught four passes for 31 yards and a touchdown in the playoff win over the Dallas Cowboys. His touchdown was his first in two months. Quarless did have 26 yards in the first meeting with the Seattle Seahawks.
