General News (Tue Oct 17): is expected to take the field this week against the New York Giants, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.
Week 7: at New York Giants
FBG says: Neutral matchup. The Seahawks run game has been thoroughly mediocre thus far. As a team, they've topped 90 yards just once in 5 games, and they've produced just 4 ground touchdowns thus far, good for sixth-fewest in the league. And it was troubling that they couldn't get going against the Rams, who have allowed the most touchdowns and fourth-most yards to running backs. To make matters worse, the backfield rotation remains as clear as mud; it didn't simplify a bit when lead back Chris Carson was lost to injury. The safest guess for value looks like Eddie Lacy, who has seen much more opportunity per snap and whose anemic performance (2.97 yards per rush) has actually been marginally better than Thomas Rawls' (1.85). Neither back has flashed any dynamism thus far, and both have always been among the league's most injury-ravaged players. Running in quicksand behind a bottom-rung offensive line - our Matt Bitonti currently ranks it dead-last in the NFL - neither Lacy nor Rawls looks likely to threaten a 100-yard game soon, nor even 75. Quarterback Russell Wilson remains a dynamic if not always voluminous runner; he's run for 26+ yards in 4 of 5 games thus far. Passing down backs J.D. McKissick and C.J. Prosise offer theoretical upside, and Prosise is tentatively expected back for Week 7, but neither is a factor in the ground game. Through the first 5 games, the Giants run defense was a league-wide laughingstock. It had allowed 111+ yards to each of its opponents - including some shaky running games - before pulling it together to suffocate the Broncos' solid attack (just 38 running back yards on 15 attempts). They looked a lot like the Giants of 2016, who had allowed the third-fewest ground yards in football and the second-lowest yardage per rush. And Week 7 presents their best opportunity yet to snap fully out of the funk. With impressive rookie Chris Carson on IR, the Seahawks run game looks like one of the league's worst, stocked with a poor offensive line and unimpressive, one-dimensional runners. Simply put, we should no longer look at the Giants run defense as a unit to target with opponents - and certainly not these Seahawks.
Recent Stats and Projections
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.
Latest NewsSeahawks | C.J. Prosise limited Wednesday (Wed Oct 18, 07:56 PM) - Seattle Seahawks RB C.J. Prosise (ankle) was limited during practice Wednesday, Oct. 18. link to story Seahawks | C.J. Prosise should play this week (Tue Oct 17, 04:06 PM) - Seattle Seahawks RB C.J. Prosise (ankle) is expected to take the field this week against the New York Giants. Our View: Prosise can bring some spark to the Seahawks offense...provided he doesn't get banged up again. With Prosise back in action, J.D. McKissic should see fewer opportunities.
link to story Seahawks | C.J. Prosise to return after bye (Tue Oct 10, 04:22 PM) - Seattle Seahawks RB C.J. Prosise (ankle) will return to action following the Seahawks' Week 6 bye, according to head coach Pete Carroll. Our View: Since Chris Carson went down, the Seahawks run game has been a bit tricky. Prosise should at least get a share of carries and the third down work, if he is truly healthy.
link to story Seahawks | Week 5 inactives for Seahawks (Sun Oct 8, 02:33 PM) - The Seattle Seahawks have declared RB C.J. Prosise, DL Cliff Avril, OT Isaiah Battle, CB Jeremy Lane, OG Jordan Roos, OG Mark Glowinski, DL Quinton Jefferson inactive for Week 5. Our View: JD McKissic will be the receiving back again today. He's worth a desperation play in deep PPR leagues.
Seahawks | C.J. Prosise ruled out (Sat Oct 7, 04:49 PM) - Seattle Seahawks RB C.J. Prosise (ankle) has been downgraded to out for the team's Week 5 game. Our View: Those who picked up J.D. McKissic as a waiver wire claim could plug him in as a 'what the heck' flex in Week 5. McKissic will play Prosise's role as a change-of-pace back behind Thomas Rawls and Eddie Lacy. With another good game (two touchdowns last week), McKissic could take over even if/when Prosise is healthy.
