Summary

One of the most talented backs in the 2016 rookie class, Prosise is a strong and swift 220-pound runner with a wide receiver background who was still learning the intricacies of blocking schemes prior to his first training camp. Prosise, who worked with position coach Chad Spann, a former NFL running back, proved a quick study when considering how much he had to learn. Seattle began using Prosise sparingly around midseason and increased his usage as he performed accordingly. Prosise peaked in Weeks 10-11 with 234 yards from scrimmage and a touchdown, but his momentum towards a significant and lasting role ended when he suffered a season-ending shoulder injury. Look for Prosise to have a say in this running back competition despite the fact that Thomas Rawls and Eddie Lacy are the front runners for the lead role. Seattle fosters open competition and if Prosise develops at the craft of the position, his athletic ability is every bit as good, if not superior, to Rawls and Lacy. At this stage of the spring and summer, consider Prosise in the second half of drafts as an option who will earn enough roleplaying production to deliver bye-week upside. (May 25)

Seahawks | C.J. Prosise to be worked into offense? (Fri Jun 23, 09:31 PM) - Seattle Seahawks RB C.J. Prosise will be used mainly as the third-down back, according to Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times, but Condotta believes Prosise will also be worked into the offense to exploit specific matchups.

Our View: The Seahawks are likely to have some sort of three-headed RBBC in 2017. Earlier reports have suggested they will ride the 'hot hand' of either Eddie Lacy or Thomas Rawls as runners. Prosise is dangerous with the rock, and he should be mixed in as a pass-catching or change-of-pace threat. He's going off the board at RB38 (8.08) in 12-team PPR leagues.

Seahawks | C.J. Prosise a matchup problem (Sun Jun 18, 08:35 PM) - Seattle Seahawks RB C.J. Prosise runs routes like a receiver, according to Sheil Kapadia of ESPN.com, and Kapadia called Prosise 'the biggest mismatch player' on Seattle's offense.

Our View: Prosise is a converted wide receiver from his college days at Notre Dame. He runs routes like a receiver, but he looks like a running back when running after the catch. Prosise will mix in as a change-of-pace back behind starter Eddie Lacy.
