At the end of the 2011 season, Lynch was traded from St Kilda to Adelaide as part of a three-way deal with Richmond, who received ruckman Ivan Maric from Adelaide whilst trading their second-round draft pick to St Kilda.
On 12 May 2013 while playing for the Crows as a replacement for injured power forward Taylor Walker, Lynch kicked 10 goals, including 6 goals in the third quarter. He is only the third player to score ten or more goals in a game for Adelaide.
The 2013 season was a good one for Tom, scoring 33 goals and 20 behinds, making him the Crow's Leading Goalscorer for the season. He suffered an injury that made him miss the last part of the season.
On April 20, 2014, he made his return to the Adelaide Crows as the substitute against the Greater Western Sydney Giants. The next week he was one of the key players against the Western Bulldogs, amassing 25 disposals and kicking two goals. However, against Melbourne on the 3rd May, he suffered a broken jaw from a bump by Melbourne player Jack Viney. Jack was originally given two weeks, but the decision was dismissed.
