Week 15: vs Los Angeles Rams

All RB vs LAR

FBG says: Good matchup. The Seahawks fed Mike Davis as the lead back for the second straight week since his return from injury as he saw 15 carries for 66 yards. Davis split snaps with J.D. McKissick, but McKissick only carried three times as he contributed more in the passing game than Davis did. Davis is averaging 4.2 yards per carry over these past two games, which is an impressive mark considering what the Seahawks have been used to getting from their running backs this season. Davis did exit last week's game early though after injuring his ribs midway through the third quarter, so his status will be worth monitoring throughout the week. The offensive line continues to improve with Duane Brown healthy at left tackle and Justin Britt playing well at center. Russell Wilson also continued with his weekly contribution to the running game as he averaged 10 yards per carry for 50 rushing yards--the third time in the last six games that he has rushed for 50 or more yards. The Rams continue to struggle mightily against the run despite the pass-rushing talent they have up front. Last week, they allowed the Eagles to rush for 139 yards on 32 carries, good for an average of 4.3 yards per attempt. While this was below the Rams 4.7 yards per attempt average on the season (T-2nd worst in the league), it was still a very poor showing in which the Rams defense was simply overwhelmed by the volume and worn down as the game went on. The Seahawks run game is improving while the Rams run defense has been consistently bad in recent weeks. One thing the Rams have done a decent job of this season has been containing mobile quarterbacks as Russell Wilson had one of his worst rushing games of the season against the Rams back in Week 5, but Wilson has kicked it up to another level as the season has progressed--so do not look for him to be hindered in what will still be a soft matchup.

Recent Game Summaries

2017 Week 3 vs TEN (4 / 9 / 0 rush, 5 / 3 / 65 / 0 rec)

Prosise had a great nose for the ball on a couple of deep passes, one of which was complete and brought the Seahawks inside the 5-yard line. He didn't do much with his carries, but as a receiver he was a minor revelation and should carry some PPR value going forward. He also showed excellent concentration picking up a low shovel pass (as Wilson scrambled) and did a great job picking up yards after the catch.

2017 Week 2 vs SF (0 / 0 / 0 rush, 6 / 3 / 22 / 0 rec)

Prosise was not used in the ground game, but was a decent safety outlet for Wilson on passing downs. He showed quick thinking, turning upfield after catching a quick shovel pass, and good open field moves gets him a few extra yards. Later, he nearly scored -- and if not for a bad drop, would have - Wilson hit him in stride near the goal line. The coaching staff appear to be content letting Carson and Rawls handle the rushing with Prosise as a true pass catching back.

2017 Week 1 vs GB (4 / 11 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

Prosise has been touted as the 3rd down back but was under-utilized in the role this week. He had more playing time than Lacy and less than Carson. In theory, his workload shouldn't be effected by theirs, but time will tell going forward as the RB shuffle works itself out.
