2016 Outlook
Depth Chart
Filling the shoes of a legend is never easy, but that’s what second-year running back Thomas Rawls will attempt to do after Seattle running back Marshawn Lynch decided to call it a career this past off-season. Rawls was a relatively unknown commodity last season and presumably third in line to get carries in the Seattle backfield, but after a number of injuries to the backs ahead of him, Rawls got his opportunity. His 830 yards and four touchdowns don’t sound spectacular, but his production was solid and consistent enough to make him a very valuable waiver wire addition.

Now entering his second season, Rawls finds himself in a completely different situation as the projected workhorse in what has traditionally been a very run-heavy offense (3rd in rushing attempts last season). While he does have some competition for touches, it’d be hard to envision a scenario where Rawls doesn’t play the majority of the snaps for the Seahawks, presuming he is healthy, to start the season. Seattle will likely lean on their passing game more this season now that the Lynch era has come to an end, but there will still be plenty of carries to go around. Now it’s up to Rawls to prove that the explosion he showed in 2015 was not a fluke.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury C.J. Prosise expected to be game-time decision
Rookie RB was able to practice this week
By: Doug Orth | Thu Jan 12, 6:05 pm

Seattle Seahawks
C.J. Prosise (fractured scapula) is "getting back" per (HC Pete) Carroll but will go all the way to game day. Made it through practice this week. (Liz Mathews on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: His return is a big deal for Seattle, which needs all the weapons it can get in a likely shootout in the Divisional Round with the Falcons. Atlanta has struggled against capable receiving backs all season and Prosise is certainly that and then some. If he is cleared for Saturday, don't hesitate investing a few DFS shares into him. If he can't play, expect a heavy does of Thomas Rawls with Marcel Reece getting a bit of work in the passing game.


Carroll wants Rawls to get 20 touches
Seahawks head coach talks up RB
By: Mike Krueger | Sat Jan 7, 10:15 am

Seattle Seahawks
Rookie Alex Collins will see some action, but Carroll has made it clear that Thomas Rawls will be the primary back. "He’s been ready for about four or five weeks, and we can really see that he can turn it around and count on his legs and count on his quicks and all that kind of stuff," Carroll said. "We haven’t gotten him the ball as consistently as we would like, and any runner needs to get the football to start to get a feel for it. "I hope, like I said last week -- I want him to get the ball 20 times this week. We’ll see what happens, we’ll see how the game goes. (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: Carroll routinely talks up his players and while it's nice that be would like to get his running back 20 touches, it's difficult for fantasy owners to put a lot of stock in his words. The matchup is decent but with Alex Collins likely to see action and Rawls being inefficient lately, its hard to trust him as anything more than a DFS tournament play.


Injury C.J. Prosise diagnosed with fractured scapula
No surgery needed and no timetable for recovery
By: Doug Orth | Mon Nov 21, 6:55 pm

Seattle Seahawks
Seattle Seahawks HC Carroll said C.J. Prosise has a fractured scapula. No surgery. Just need to wait it out. No estimate on recovery time. Won't know for weeks. (Curtis Crabtree on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Prosise's potential run as the Seahawks' featured back ended almost soon as it began. Thomas Rawls showed very little rust in Week 11 against a good Philadelphia Eagles defense and will now be the Seattle RB who has potential league-winning upside if he can stay healthy and is allowed to touch the ball 20 or more times per week. Alex Collins will likely back up Rawls and can be added as a handcuff.


Seahawks release RB Christine Michael
Thomas Rawls expected to return
By: Mike Krueger | Tue Nov 15, 6:00 pm

Seattle Seahawks
Seahawks have released RB Christine Michael. (via ESPN sources) (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: We knew Thomas Rawls was expected back this week and rookie C.J. Prosise had a nice showing as the feature back in Week 10 but this moves comes as a bit of surprise. Prosise and Rawls are now the backs to own in Seattle. Michael can be claimed off waivers by any team.


Injury Thomas Rawls expected to return Week 11
Will practice this week
By: Mike Krueger | Mon Nov 14, 2:00 pm

Seattle Seahawks
Carroll said RB Thomas Rawls is ready to go. Will to practice to play this week. #Seahawks (Liz Mathews on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Rawls suffered a hairline fracture in his fibula in Week 2 but is set to return in Week 11. His role is unclear as the Seahawks got a decent performance from rookie C.J. Prosise against the Patriots. It's possible Rawls could become part of three-man committee with Christine Michael included. Rawls is worth a free agent pickup if he's available in your league.


Injury Thomas Rawls nearing return
HC expects RB back in two weeks
By: Doug Orth | Mon Oct 24, 6:40 pm

Seattle Seahawks
Seattle Seahawks HC Pete Carroll: “There’s a difference (in the running game and offense) with Thomas Rawls out.” Said he expects him back in two weeks. (Stephen Cohen on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Carroll later made it clear he meant he hopes Rawls can play in two weeks, which means he should return to practice in some fashion this week. We'll see, as Carroll is almost always a bit optimistic regarding injuries. Christine Michael has averaged 3.6 yards per carry or worse in each of the last three weeks, so Rawls could have a role - possibly substantial - when he returns. He should not be hanging out on the waiver wire in any leagues.


Injury Thomas Rawls expected back in a couple weeks
Leg injury
By: Mike Krueger | Mon Oct 24, 11:45 am

Seattle Seahawks
Carroll: “There’s a difference with Thomas Rawls out.” Said he expects him back in two weeks. (Stephen Cohen on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Christine Michael has done a decent job in the absence of Rawls but head coach Pete Carrol's quick comment suggest Rawls will have a significant role when he returns. Rawls is a nice speculative add if he's available in your league.
