  Seahawks | Christine Michael runs well again    Fri Aug 26, 12:52 AM

Seattle Seahawks RB Christine Michael had seven carries for 58 yards against the Dallas Cowboys Thursday, Aug. 25, and he has 24 carries for 157 yards in the preseason.

Footballguys view: Michael probably isn't going to displace Thomas Rawls as the starter, but he can take enough work to lower Rawls' weekly and season-long ceiling. Michael's ability has been on display now that his off-field issues have been resolved. If Rawls goes down, Michael could be a league winner. He should be on your late round running back priority list.

  Seahawks | Coach says Thomas Rawls will play Week 1    Wed Aug 24, 05:47 PM

Seattle Seahawks RB Thomas Rawls (ankle) will be ready to play in Week 1, according to head coach Pete Carroll. Rawls will not play in the preseason game against the Dallas Cowboys Thursday, Aug. 25, but has looked good during training camp.

Footballguys view: Rawls is out this week, and there's no need to play him in the fourth preseason game. He's likely to split time and touches with Christine Michael this year. The percentage of the split will determine whether or not Rawls is worth his current ADP of RB15 (4.04) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Seahawks | Jimmy Graham gets day to rest    Tue Aug 23, 09:32 PM

Seattle Seahawks TE Jimmy Graham (knee) was given the day off from practice Tuesday, Aug. 23, after what offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell said had been four straight days of good work.

Footballguys view: Graham's status for the start of the regular season is in question. The team has been -- and will continue to be cautious with him as he returns from one of the most devastating injury any football player can suffer. We're not expecting much from Graham this year (especially early), so only consider him a late-round TE2 for your fantasy team.

  Seahawks | First-team offense to play past half    Tue Aug 23, 09:31 PM

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson and the rest of the first-team offense is expected to play at least one series into the third quarter in the preseason game Thursday, Aug. 25, against the Dallas Cowboys, offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell confirmed Tuesday, Aug. 23.

Footballguys view: We're excited to see the Seahawks first-team offense for that amount of time. It should prove quite productive for guys like Wilson, WRs Doug Baldwin and Tyler Lockett. We'll also be interested to see if RB Christine Michael continues to look good this preseason.

  Seahawks | Thomas Rawls out for Thursday    Tue Aug 23, 09:30 PM

As expected, Seattle Seahawks RB Thomas Rawls (ankle) will not play in the preseason game Thursday, Aug. 25, against the Dallas Cowboys, head coach Pete Carroll confirmed Tuesday, Aug. 23.

Footballguys view: Keep an eye on this Seahawks backfield as Rawls continues to miss time. Christine Michael should be the lead back this week, and rookie C.J. Prosise may be able to play as a backup. Rawls should be ready for the start of the regular season, but his injury and the resurgence of Michael gives us pause -- especially where Rawls is still going (RB15, 4.04 in 12-team PPR) in drafts.

  Seahawks | C.J. Prosise should play Thursday    Tue Aug 23, 04:43 PM

Seattle Seahawks RB C.J. Prosise (hamstring) is expected to see some playing time Thursday, Aug. 25, against the Dallas Cowboys if he continues to progress, according to offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell.

Footballguys view: He wasn't around for the first two games and his injury caused him to drop down the depth chart behind at least Christine Micheal. Right now it appears that, even healthy, he won't be an option in redraft, but given the uncertainty in front of him, Prosise is worth keeping an eye on.

  Seahawks | Thomas Rawls to return in two weeks?    Sun Aug 21, 06:52 PM

Seattle Seahawks RB Thomas Rawls (ankle) should return 'in a couple weeks', according to head coach Pete Carroll.

Footballguys view: It doesn't sound like we'll get to see Rawls in the preseason. If we do it will be in the fourth preseason game, which would be better than nothing. It appears that Christine Michael will get a decent workload in the season opener against Miami and a chance to hold down enough of the work to keep Rawls in RB2 territory instead of the RB1 he was last year once he took over the job.

  Seahawks | Christine Michael plays well again    Fri Aug 19, 05:59 PM

Seattle Seahawks RB Christine Michael rushed for 55 yards on 10 carries in the preseason game against the Minnesota Vikings Thursday, Aug. 18. He has rushed for 99 yards in the first two preseason games and is averaging 5.82 yards per rush.

Footballguys view: Michael is set to get around 6-10 carries a game when the season opens, with Thomas Rawls entrenched as the starter, but if Rawls is slow coming back from his ankle surgery, or if Michael plays up to his tremendous raw ability, he could force something like an RBBC. He's part of the second half of draft plans now.

  Seahawks | Thomas Rawls back next week    Fri Aug 19, 11:25 AM

Seattle Seahawks RB Thomas Rawls (ankle) will practice fully next week, according to head coach Pete Carroll. Rawls could play in the third preseason game, but Carroll said they'd make that decision late next week.

Footballguys view: Christine Michael continues to leave an impression with his play. Rawls should get the majority of carries once he is back to 2015 form, but Michael can certainly force the Seahawks to rethink that with the carries he will get as Rawls is eased back in during the early season schedule.

  Seahawks | Thomas Rawls making progress    Wed Aug 17, 05:24 PM

Seattle Seahawks RB Thomas Rawls (knee) has been performing well during practice and may be able to play in the team's third preseason game.

Footballguys view: Keep an eye on this situation as camp rolls on. Rawls should be the lead RB for the Seahawks this year, and there's a chance he could perform like a solid RB2 all season. His current ADP (RB13, 3.12 in 12-team PPR) might be a little rich considering the recent reports of backup Christine Michael getting worked into the offense a bit more. We like targeting Rawls in the early fourth, but make sure to snare Michael as a late-round flier if you can.

  Seahawks | Jimmy Graham uncertain for Week 1    Wed Aug 17, 05:11 PM

Seattle Seahawks TE Jimmy Graham (knee) should see more work on the field over the next few weeks, but head coach Pete Carroll said the team is not sure if Graham will be ready for Week 1. 'Really we're shooting for: Where is he at the start of the season? And we'll evaluate then on how much longer it may take, or he may be ready. We don't know that yet. But he feels good,' Carroll said.

Footballguys view: Graham wasn't a good fit for the Seahawks last year, and quite frankly the offense was better when he was out. We'll see if that changes this year, but don't get too excited about his prospects. Graham will get drafted on name value, but his real value might be that of a TE2. His current ADP is TE11 (10.05) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Seahawks | C.J. Prosise on the bubble?    Tue Aug 16, 11:00 PM

Seattle Seahawks RB C.J. Prosise (hamstring) has missed the first two weeks of training camp and beat writer Curtis Crabtree considers him to be on the bubble, only due to his bevy of injuries, behind RBs Thomas Rawls, Christine Michael and Alex Collins, who are considered locks for the roster.

Footballguys view: Prosise is highly unlikely to get cut, but he could be marginalized in the running back rotation this year if the team likes seventh-round pick Zac Brooks, who also has receiving back abilities. Prosise's redraft value is on life support.

  Seahawks | Thomas Rawls in team drills    Mon Aug 15, 04:27 PM

Seattle Seahawks RB Thomas Rawls (knee) participated in team drills Monday, Aug. 15, for the first time all offseason.

Footballguys view: It's a sign that Rawls is nearing full strength. Fantasy owners need to recognize that Rawls is the lead back but he could split touches with Christine Michael. Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll believes that duo could provide a nice '1-2 punch' for the team.

Seattle Seahawks RB C.J. Prosise (hamstring) was in pads and on the field for practice Monday, Aug. 15. The extent of his participation was unclear.

Footballguys view: He's probably still limited with this hamstring injury. Prosise is a good receiver out of the backfield, and he could be in the mix behind starter Thomas Rawls as a change-of-pace back. We might see Rawls split some carries with Christine Michael this year, so be mindful of these potential splits when considering Rawls in your draft.

  Seahawks | Bigger role for Christine Michael?    Mon Aug 15, 12:11 AM

Seattle Seahawks RB Christine Michael could be part of a '1-2 punch' with RB Thomas Rawls, according to head coach Pete Carroll, and Carroll praised Michael's consistency.

Footballguys view: This is not what Rawls drafters wanted to hear, but Michael is a new man according to most reports and the team, and we already know he has the talent to be a very good NFL running back. The Seahawks have gone with a true feature back under Carroll, but Rawls will likely be eased back in at the beginning of the season, giving Michael a chance to seize a role. Rawls is looking riskier in the fourth round, but his upside still merits a pick in the fifth.

Seattle Seahawks RB Christine Michael shined in the preseason opener Saturday, Aug. 13, against the Kansas City Chiefs, and head coach Pete Carroll had interesting comments after the game. He said when RB Thomas Rawls (knee) returns it will be 'a little 1-2 punch that we are really excited about.'

Footballguys view: Keep this in mind when considering either for your fantasy team. Rawls is RB13 (3.11) in 12-team PPR leagues, and Michael is a nice 'lottery ticket' pick near the end of your draft.

Seattle Seahawks RB Christine Michael continued to build upon what has been a solid camp in preseason action against the Kansas City Chiefs on Saturday, Aug. 13, drawing the start and rushing for 44 yards on seven carries.

Footballguys view: The talent has always been there with Michael. He bounced around the league last year and may have finally 'got it' after almost being out of football. Thomas Rawls is set to start, but he's not healthy yet so keep your eyes on this situation.

  Seahawks | Christine Michael has chance to start    Thu Aug 11, 01:51 PM

Seattle Seahawks RB Christine Michael has been working with the first-team offense since training camp started and has a legitimate chance to win the starting running back job. RBs Thomas Rawls and Alex Collins are also candidates for the starting job.

Footballguys view: Rawls is the favorite here, but he's still healing from a knee injury. The team won't rush him back, but if Michael looks good this preseason, he might cut into his carries. By himself, Rawls is a great RB2, but if he starts splitting carries, it's going to ruin the value of every back in the backfield. Right now we still rank it as Rawls, then Michael, then the rookie Collins. We'll keep you posted if it changes, because if one guy gets the bulk of the carries, his fantasy production will be great.

Seattle Seahawks TE Jimmy Graham (knee) was activated from the active/Physically Unable to Perform list Wednesday, Aug. 10.

Footballguys view: This is a good surprise, although not one that necessarily means Graham is "back" for fantasy. Graham was already a major disappointment for fantasy last year at full speed. He probably won't be himself, but if he's on the field it will be a good sign for players coming from patellar tears in the future.

  Seahawks | C.J. Prosise could play next week    Tue Aug 9, 07:52 PM

Seattle Seahawks rookie RB C.J. Prosise (hamstring) has a chance to play in the second preseason game against the Minnesota Vikings next week, according to head coach Pete Carroll.

Footballguys view: The team likes the rookie from Notre Dame, and he was the first of three RBs they chose in the 2016 NFL draft. A converted WR, Prosise is a work in progress as a runner but a fine receiver out of the backfield. Perhaps they'll use the rookie as a part-time player behind starter Thomas Rawls.

  Seahawks | Jimmy Graham close to a return    Tue Aug 9, 03:52 PM

Seattle Seahawks TE Jimmy Graham (knee) is 'right at the edge of getting back,' according to head coach Pete Carroll.

Footballguys view: Collins appears to be set up to benefit the most of the three rookie backs if Thomas Rawls goes down or has trouble coming back from ankle surgery. CJ Prosise has already been ruled out of the first preseason game, and seventh-round pick Zac Brooks is also banged up.

  Seahawks | Thomas Rawls activated off PUP    Sun Aug 7, 05:43 PM

Seattle Seahawks RB Thomas Rawls (ankle) was activated off the Physically Unable to Perform list Sunday, Aug. 7.

Footballguys view: Most of the hand-wringing about Rawls is over, even with the team revealing that he did have surgery on his ankle this offseason. As long as Rawls gets through his first few practices without incident, he can safely be drafted in fourth or even third round as an RB2 who can be a borderline RB1 - assuming the Seahawks offensive line comes together.
