2017 Outlook
Depth Chart
After struggling to stay healthy and battling conditioning issues, Eddie Lacy now finds himself in a new home as the projected early down back in Seattle. The Seahawks signed the former Packer to what is essentially a one-year "prove it" deal, including numerous production incentives and even some much talked about weight incentives that he has already begun to achieve. The added pressure and accountability should help Lacy stay in shape but it also goes to show that Lacy is not yet fully trusted by the coaching staff.

He's likely the most physically skilled runner on the team but Lacy's job is one of the least secure in the league and there's no guarantee that he even makes it out of the pre-season as the team's top back. Not only that, but with the league moving toward running back by committee, Lacy could end up leading the team in touches while only getting around 50 percent of the carries. He's also unlikely to get much passing down work as long as C.J. Prosise remains healthy. Unless he returns to his impressive touchdown efficiency from his early days in Green Bay, the lack of touches could lead to Lacy being a frustrating player to own and a bit of a bust for fantasy purposes.

Still, the upside is huge for Lacy, especially given his dwindling ADP. If he can secure the role as the team's primary red zone runner as he did in Green Bay, there should be plenty of opportunities for Lacy to get back to the fantasy producer he was early in his career. Still just 27 years old, one could argue that Lacy is just now hitting his physical prime.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Seahawks expecting to get Thomas Rawls back
Ankle
By: Jake Gordon | Wed Sep 13, 6:00 pm

Seattle Seahawks
Seattle coach Pete Carroll reiterated during his Wednesday press conference that the Seahawks expect that Rawls will return for Sunday’s home opener against the 49ers after he sat out last week with a high ankle sprain suffered in the exhibition opener Aug. 13. Rawls practiced fully last week but the team decided to hold him out one more week hoping he would get to 100 percent before returning. (Seattle Times)

FFToday's Take: Eddie Lacy, Chris Carson and Thomas Rawls look like their destined to form a RBBC in Seattle. Although Lacy seems like the current favorite to start, the division of labor is a crapshoot. Until the distribution of touches becomes clearer, all three running backs are risky fantasy plays heading into Week 2.


Injury Thomas Rawls, T.J. Yeldon could be held out
Gametime decision for both RBs

#Jaguars RB TJ Yeldon (hamstring) & #Seahawks RB Thomas Rawls are in similar situations. Both practiced, both may be held out to get to 100%. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Rawls has been labeled a gametime decision. He's dealing with a high ankle sprain since August 13th. Expect to Eddie Lacy to start with C.J. Prosise and Chris Carson also seeing action. Yeldon was limted in practice this week with a hamstring injury. Chris Ivory would get more run if Yeldon sits.


Injury Thomas Rawls to miss next preseason game
"Minor" ankle injury; Eddie Lacy to get start
By: Doug Orth | Thu Aug 17, 6:20 pm

Seattle Seahawks
Pete Carroll says RB Thomas Rawls has minor ankle issue and won't play Friday. Eddie Lacy will start at tailback. (The Tacoma News Tribune)

FFToday's Take: Any "minor" ankle injury is newsworthy for Rawls given his extensive injury history. He has been a training camp darling so far, but this will give Lacy a chance to close the gap. Either way, it would be a surprise to see either player reach 200 touches this season, making both low-end RB3s at best.
