Struggles in the wet
FRichmond Tigers
July 13, 2020
Lynch finished with just five disposals (five kicks), two marks, one goal and one behind in Sunday's 34-26 victory over the Swans.
ANALYSIS
Lynch was a surprise inclusion for the Tigers given he had undergone surgery on his finger only days prior. Unfortunately, that's where the good news stops as the forward managed just one goal in the low scoring encounter. The weather ensured both teams were limited in terms of their run with productivity hard to come by. Lynch appeared to come through unscathed and should be ready to go for round seven.

In lineup against Sydney
FRichmond Tigers
July 9, 2020
Lynch is listed in the lineup for Sunday's Round Six match with Sydney.
ANALYSIS
Lynch underwent surgery for a fractured finger earlier in the week and it wasn't enough to keep him out of the team. He'd already played through the injury during Round Five, so a small wrap shouldn't limit him too much.
Unlikely to play Round 6

Hand
July 6, 2020
Lynch underwent minor surgery Monday to address a fractured finger and is considered doubtful to play in Sunday's Round 6 match with Sydney, Daniel Cherny of The Melbourne Age reports.
ANALYSIS
Lynch was able to play through the injury over the weekend in the Round 5 victory over Melbourne, but after surgery was deemed necessary when he was evaluated following the match, the forward looks like he'll need at least one week off to recover. He's still expected to travel with the Tigers to the Gold Coast this week, though Lynch will likely need to demonstrate considerable progress in training in order to get the green light to play Sunday.
Could miss Round 6

July 5, 2020
Lynch (thumb) is considered likely to miss July 12's match against Sydney, the Herald Sun reports.
ANALYSIS
Lynch suffered a broken hand during Sunday's win over Melbourne, an injury which reportedly puts him in a realistic spot to miss a week of game-action. The Tigers are still holding out hope that the forward could play next Sunday, but an ultimate decision on Lynch's status for Round 6 may not come until closer to game time.
Injures finger in win

Finger
July 5, 2020
Lynch kicked three goals and added 12 disposals Sunday in Richmond's 79-72 win over Melbourne in Round 5.
ANALYSIS
While Lynch tied for the team lead in goals in the decisive victory he appeared to fracture his finger during the match, though he was never forced to leave early, per ABC.net.au. The Tigers are apparently optimistic the injury won't cost Lynch further time, though he may require extra protection on his finger in Richmond's Round 6 match July 12 versus Sydney.
Kicks game-high three goals
FRichmond Tigers
June 11, 2020
Lynch produced 12 disposals (10 kicks, two handballs) three marks, two tackles, three goals, and one behind during Thursday's 36-all draw with Collingwood.
ANALYSIS
Lynch kickstarted a stirring comeback for the Tigers, drilling three straight goals as they came turned things around in the second quarter. In fact, Lynch had managed to score all of Richmond's points at halftime and was certainly a factor as they managed to draw level come the final siren. The million-dollar man absolutely earned his keep Thursday and should continue to be a fantasy contributor week-in and week-out.
