While he's been shoehorned into being a "Darren Sproles-like" player comparison by many fantasy analysts due to his ability in the passing game, the truth is that there is much more than meets the stat sheet for this talented young tailback. At 6'1" and 225 lbs, Prosise does not fit the mold of a traditional pass catching specialist at the running back position. Most of those players are undersized and are used sparingly as runners in order to keep them from taking a beating. But in Prosise's case, that's not really a concern. Prosise is built like a feature back who simply also has the skills to take the majority of the backfield work on passing downs.

With that said, there is obviously a reason why the team opted to sign veteran Eddie Lacy and not simply hand over the job to Prosise and Rawls. In Prosise's case, health concerns come into play. A former wide receiver in college, Prosise's body has not held up well to the wear and tear of playing the running back position. He suffered a concussion and a high ankle sprain in his senior year at Notre Dame, then followed it up with hip, hand and shoulder injuries as a rookie. These injuries caused him to much the majority of the season and have to give the coaching staff pause about whether or not he can physically stand up to the beatings that NFL running backs take.

It's certainly possible that Prosise's injury history is just a string of bad luck and all reports out of Seahawks camp seem to be that he is fully healthy and ready to take on a significant role for the team in 2017. Projected to be the team's primary back on passing downs, Prosise's value is obviously boosted significantly in PPR formats as he might only touch the ball a handful of times per game to start the season. There is concern that his PPR value might be inflated as the Seahawks have not proven to be committed to passing the ball to their running backs in the Pete Carroll era. The player who has caught the most passes out of the backfield since Russell WIlson took over at quarterback is Marshawn Lynch and the most he ever caught in a season was 40 passes. Of course, the team hasn't been loaded with many pass catching specialists in the backfield, but the concern is still there.

Rawls and Lacy are expected to battle for the early down work, but if Prosise can remain healthy while showing the flash and excitement that he did at times as a rookie, there's no reason to believe that he can't work his way into some early down work. His ADP makes him a cheap investment for those in PPR formats, but he might just have the highest upside of any player in this Seattle backfield while also providing the highest, most consistent floor due to his work in the passing game.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Seahawks add RB Mike Davis, Prosise to IR
Spained ankle ends season for Prosise
By: Mike Krueger | Tue Nov 14, 2:00 pm

Seattle Seahawks
The Mike Davis move is official. The Seahawks have promoted him off their practice squad and placed fellow running back C.J. Prosise on injured reserve. Prosise left the team's win over Arizona with a sprained ankle. He had missed most of the previous five games with a sprain in his other ankle. Seattle also announced the signing of cornerback Byron Maxwell. Richard Sherman was placed on IR, as expected. (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: Prosise has been unable to stay healthy during his two years in the league, playing in only 10 games. Thomas Rawls is the starting running back in Seattle, but isn't startable given the sad state of the Seahawks running game.


Injury Chris Carson lands on IR
Suffered broken leg and high-ankle sprain

FFToday's Take: It's possible Carson can make it back before the end of the regular season, but a return around the NFL Playoffs seems more likely. HC Pete Carroll seemed to suggest Thomas Rawls will get the first shot at reclaiming the starting job, but the whole Seattle backfield is a mess at the moment. Eddie Lacy will likely steal carries from Rawls, while oft-injured C.J. Prosise and J.D. McKissic could share work on passing downs.


Injury Doug Baldwin a gametime decision
Groin injury
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Sep 29, 1:15 pm

Seattle Seahawks
Pete Carroll said in his weekly interview with Seattle's KIRO Radio 97.3 FM that the Seahawks probably won't know until Sunday if WR Doug Baldwin (groin) will be available against the Colts. Baldwin said this week that he plans to play. Carroll said RB C.J. Prosise (ankle) is still hobbling and that it would take an "enormous jump" for him to make it back by Sunday. (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: Unfortunately, the Seahawks and Colts play Sunday night, meaning we likely won't know Baldwin's status until late in the day. There is optimism that Baldwin will play but if he doesn't, Paul Richards, Jimmy Graham and Tyler Locket will be Russell Wilson's top targets.


Injury Prosise unlikely to play, ankle injury
Carroll: "He’s got a significant ankle”
By: Mike Krueger | Wed Sep 27, 3:45 pm

Seattle Seahawks
The Seahawks will likely play without running back C.J. Prosise against the Indianapolis Colts due to an ankle injury suffered late in Sunday’s game at Tennessee. “He’s got an ankle that we are concerned about,” Carroll said. “We’ll see how it goes, give him a couple days before we have to declare what’s going on with him. But he’s got a significant ankle.” (Seattle Times)

FFToday's Take: It sounds like Prosise could be dealing with a multi-week injury, leaving Chris Carson to see the bulk of the work in Week 4 against the Colts. Prosise is mainly a third-down back and that role could go to J.D. McKissic. Carson is shaping up as an RB2.


Injury Thomas Rawls, T.J. Yeldon could be held out
Gametime decision for both RBs
By: Mike Krueger | Sun Sep 10, 8:45 am

Jacksonville Jaguars
#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.
