2017 Outlook
Depth Chart
When Marshawn Lynch walked away from the game, Seahawks fans believed that they were in good hands with Thomas Rawls stepping into the role as the team's top running back. After compiling just 54 yards on 15 touches in Week 1 however, Seattle fans, and fantasy owners alike, got the bad news that the young tailback had broken his leg. When he did finally return, it was not in the capacity that many had hoped as Rawls put together just one game of real fantasy production (Wk 13 vs. CAR) for the remainder of the regular season before a big game against the Lions in the playoffs.

Still just 24 years old, Rawls now finds himself in a battle for snaps with veteran tailback Eddie Lacy heading into his third season as a pro. It's hard to write him completely off given that his 2016 season was so injury-riddled, but all reports out of Seattle suggest this is Lacy's job to lose. We've seen Rawls put together some impressive fantasy performances in the past, but his value is tied to the health and production coming from Lacy. Pass-catching specialist C.J. Prosise is likely to get plenty of playing time, but Rawls could find himself getting fewer than 10 touches per game early in the season, which really limits his upside for fantasy purposes.

If things pan out how the Seahawks seem to want them to with Lacy, there will likely be many fantasy leagues where Rawls gets drafted and then dropped not long into the season. He then becomes a player to watch on waiver wires as the team could very well opt to go in his direction if they're not getting what they want from Lacy. That's not necessarily a given, however, as Prosise is not built to be only a "pass catching specialist." There's a real chance that if Lacy does not get the job done that the team could opt to implement a shared workload between Rawls and Prosise, or even one that favors Prosise. This Seattle backfield is a mess right now for fantasy purposes, especially given the team's poor offensive line, and unfortunately Rawls seems to offer the least upside of the group at the moment.

News From The Past 90 Days
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.


Lacy, Rawls to share early-down workload?
Full RBBC possible in Seattle
By: Doug Orth | Thu Jun 22, 3:25 pm

Seattle Seahawks
In the opinion of Seattle Times' reporter Bob Condotta, Eddie Lacy and Thomas Rawls will take a fairly equal share of the (early-down) carries with C.J. Prosise slated largely for a third-down role as well as being worked into the game plan to take advantage of specific matchups from week to week, assuming they each are healthy. (Seattle Times)

FFToday's Take: All three running backs have proven to be injury-prone and may actually benefit if they are capped at around 150-175 touches. Lacy's current fourth-round ADP is way too high for a player who doesn't have a stranglehold on early-down or third-down work, making him a definite bust candidate at that price. All three backs probably need to be viewed as RB3s.
