Hmmm..I'm personally gunning for Westbrook, I want him as my #2 in one league. With Westbrook, there will always be an above average risk of injury accompanying him, especially at his current age. If you have enough depth, I think he might be worth trading for. As for wear and tear, he has very little on him for this
season. He may be poised to have a Westy-type second half. He's still averaging 4.8 YPC and is still the top dog in PHI. McCoy will garner more attention, stealing 7-10 carries a game, but Westy will see the lions share of carries. Plus, Westy's upside is still there, especially in PPR leagues, as usual.
As for Lynch. Unless Trend Edwards figures out how to pass the ball, his value will continue to be hindered. Honestly, any below average production from him can directly be attributed to BUFs offense. They are absolutely atrocious. I'd take a wait and see approach with Lynch, although if he does breakout, it may be too late.
